Sorry I really think Witcher 1 fails as a game.

Controls: very sucky camera movement is screwed up you can barely adjust it and it always get's in the way, you can't do anything while your inventory open and my index finger hurts from having to press mouse button for movement.
I wont comment on anything else, because that's your opinion and you are entitled to it, but just choose the other camera mode! If you can't read the freakin manual... just stop playing PC games please.

I've read in a couple other places that uninstalling Nvidia 3D drivers increases performance. Can anyone confirm this?

Also, not sure if anyone has posted it but I found a comparison of ubersampling on/off. Can't really notice the difference so I'm ok with having it turned off. Link

You can use Autohotkey to remap any keys to any program for the guy that was trying to use numpad /arrow keys. Its extremely powerful.


For those getting surrounded which there is pretty much no way out, use bombs to stun everyone. I'd totally neglected bombs in the first Witcher. Traps are very useful as well for multiple enemies and can be reused over and over. I was hesitant to use/make as I thought they'd be one time use.

Axii is ridiculously good when you're fighting two of something that are way overpowered. The wraiths were in packs of two and very fast. Set them on each other and finished the job.

I don't notice a difference with 275 beta drivers on the crosshatching effect and not really on framerate. GTX 590, full details except Uber, 1680x1050, 45-65 fps.

I tried the over the shoulder camera but then your mouse cursor is locked so you can't click on crap!

Why not just make the camera adjustible like in wow so I can click on anything I want?
Also why can't I do anything when my inventory is open so I can browse it during running and save time? And why doesn't this game recognize the side buttons of my mouse???

Another gripe is that half of all the weapons can't be used with combat styles. What's the point? And I also don't get the point of having the swords do -20% damage??? So its supposed to actually heal my enemy??? That doesn't make any sense.

cursor is locked? please explain. as for the weapon complaint, you get your main witcher weapon(swords), and then secondary weapons that have special effects. like 20% to bleeding chance or what not.

Wow, talk about useless complaints. Not every game is identical, most of your gripes are design choices.

My 560 overclocked performs about on par with a stock 570, getting fps in the 50's while outdoors. Don't have any screens with the fps numbers on them, but there is a separate thread just for ppl listing framerates also

Well I must agree that I believe a nice couple driver updates will greatly help performance on Nvidia's end atleast. Here are some screenshots and the configuration I used with frames/sec on a single GTX580@850Mhz.

Configuration:
