post #721 of 2183
Im so pissed right now, my game keeps freezing and stops working, and as soon as I open task manager to shut it down it start working again, but the FPS is crap and I have to reboot my PC in order for it to be normal again. WTH ? Having this problem with the newest WHQL drivers and Beta drivers.

Hmm, I would imagine the very high detail textures would have a stiff impact, though with your computer you don't need to worry. I'm running it fine maxed out save ubersampling, and technical issues are usually driver-based so just find older drivers if you're experiencing slow-downs.

Has anyone gotten physically stuck? I just finished part one of rose of rememberance, had a nice bath with Triss, spoke with Roche and when I select the 'Let's Go' speech option I am suddenly in the middle of water, somewhere northeast of Flotsam on the map, and I can't move...

Reloaded 3 times, and happens every time.

I dont have problems , in start of game in castle i have average 60 fps on ultra 1920x1080, without ubersampling and vsync turn off too. But if some video setting have small impact on graphic but have big impact on frame rate i will turn off it. But what is this ubersampling? It is not in another games, becouse it have extreme impact on performance.

And you do know the Witcher's medallion spots highlights lootable objects/dead bodies/blood in the forest, right? It was in one of the tutorials in the beginning when they spammed messages at us.


I've heard the ending is pretty bad, though if it's about the Wild Hunt (which I'm very much hoping), it's easy to understand why some people might find it boring or silly. Since I buy up every book in shops and read all the backstory, I'm very much engrossed with the whole Conjunction of the Spheres backstory.

Not gonna give away spoilers, but it's pretty clever. Not your usual fantasy cliche.

i havent heard the ending is bad, just high point of the story is before the ending.

Does anybody know if this game is worth it? What's the estimated play time on this game? Is there a lot of exploration?

Well, from this thread and user reviews I've read all over, everyone is saying it's one of the best PC releases in quite some time.

It's nearing the end of the month so money is really tight, hence me not having the game just yet. But when I do get the funds, I'm not thinking twice about my purchase.

Probably not... Without 3D vision certainly, but the demo trailers? I don't see why that would have any effect.

Just leave them on.

If you look closely there's something weird with the graphics, like lines running up and down your screen. Ubersampling removes those. Not exactly sure why this game has them and not others, or what they are... anyone know?

Ah okay. Same as the first one presumably, then.

Just looked it up, the review that claimed the ending was "meh" was the PC Gamer one, so nevermind. Reading the rest of the review, it's clear the guy rushed it anyway.

Just read a few posts here.. unanimously praised. It's around 20ish hours if you rush it on easy difficulty, a decent playthrough on normal could be 30 hours easily.

I only just finished chapter 1 on hard and I'm around 25ish hours in (though I wander around and explore a lot ).
