[Official] The Witcher 2 Information & Discussion Thread - Page 171

post #1701 of 2183
well I finally got this game running. had to use the 11.6b driver set with the crossfire performance profiles from 11.6.

crossfire scaling is ok but not very good. will have to do some more testing.

was interested to see that Witcher 2 has bloom lighting, but you can't seem to set the draw distance which has a great impact on FPS.

overall it's running pretty good now 1600x900 or something like that windowed mode, custom profile, ATI CCC set to 16x AA 4x AF other settings medium. FPS in gameplay around 100 +- 25 frames.

the UI in this game is great plus the music is very impressive. normal mode seems a bit too easy. gamestop had the premium edition on sale.

I did not really realize it while playing the game, but now that I am done it and off to other games... wow does the Witcher 2 have amazing graphics. Other games just look like junk now and without such a riveting story line I am having problems staying into the other games I am playing now.

When the hell is the Witcher 3 due to come out?!?!?!

Also I agree with SQLinsert, normal mode is WAY too easy!

i think its amazing they did this game in DirectX 9 and it puts some DX10/11 games to SHAME.

They did a fantastic job with this game, i like the fact that it is an ADULT Fantasy RPG that is not created to cater to children, who shouldn't even be playing the game in the first place.

actually it's more of a adventure game compared to a traditional turn-based rpg. which is why I just uninstalled it and have it queued for ebay.

too much dialog. not enough combat

Thanks for the help for some reason the exclamation mark wasn't showing on the minimap so I was having a hard time locating the location.

I found normal hard at first, by now that i'm starting to get gear and learn how to play it's becoming pretty easy. Quen is too cheap. I do wish it was a bit more open world where you could venture into some place where monsters are way above your level. Is hard mode a lot tougher? I'll be probably paly a 2nd play through to see Roche side after i'm done with my 1st.
