post #331 of 2183
Trying to enjoy the game and get immersed but what the hell is with the shadows and the crosshatched look appearing on the edges. It's hard to make out in these shots with the down-sampling, but if others are seeing it in game you know what I'm talking about. They are just horrible and nothing like screenshots that were officially released...am I the only one playing maxed everything (except uber sampling) and getting these ugly a-ss shadows??

I'm only a little bit in but it seems like they have streamlined the combat a bit:

- the timing system seems to be gone completely
- you still have your silver and steel swords but fast style is now mapped to left click and strong style is mapped to right click (I believe you have to put points into swordsmanship to unlock group moves)
- Q casts your currently selected sign and you can now hold E to actively block/parry attacks (you can unlock a counter attack ability
- you can still dodge roll by double tapping a directional key or hitting space while moving in a direction
- combat seems slower and more realistic, Geralt seems to do less crazy ninja acrobatics

I might just be out of practice but the combat seems harder than the first. Groups on enemies can be pretty tough when you can't switch on group style and start attacking them all at once. It could just be that I only have a few skills unlocked as well. There is also an adrenaline mechanic and finisher moves that I haven't unlocked as well.

Think I'm seriously motivated to go through TW 1 so I can get this, it reminds me of Oblivion, which is a very good thing, poured so much time into it, I didn't get bored after 5 minutes.
post #336 of 2183
TW1 is awesome, I'm playing through it right now and I am so addicted at this point.

It starts off slow though, after Chapter 2 it really starts picking up.

just a quick question:

I watched a youtube clip where some guy was playing on a EVGA gtx 580 SC @ 1680x1050 and claimed to be getting average 30fps without fraps

is this true? how will the game perform on 5870 xfire @1080p?

Maaan, uber-sampling makes me sad:




When it rained in this town my fps went into the teens
