When I took the stuff on the board I noticed only one was a contract, the other stuff was info. I got to level 3 yesterday doing the side quests around the map, just go to the "?" markings on the map and you will discover new side quests. I'm leveling to get ready to kill the Griffin!

I am getting an odd stutter whenever i am riding roach, or occasionally when running, it feels like it is skipping frames, but my fps is between 52-65 with everything maxed out, but when the stutter happens, my fps is not changing at all, so it is not a framerate lag.

Awesome! I LOVE challenging combat in this game, its nothing like simply skill-based Skyrim combat. I may even up the difficulty a bit from 2nd to 3rd to really get that Dark Souls 2 feel, even though I could never get anywhere in Dark Souls 2 because it was difficult. Witcher 3 allows you to save EVEN during combat, so its easier than Dark Souls 2 in that regard.

You have to go into the user settings ini in your documents folder for the game. I spent a good portion of my evening trying to change things and make sure it all works. Gotta reassign the default keys for movement to what you want and then make sure theyre not conflicting with anything else in the game. And if they are, you can't fix the 'hardcoded' keys in game...so back to user settings to fix it. You can't even reassign hard coded keys in game to something else. For example I wanted to use A for lock on, but couldn't change it in game, so I changed lock on to like P, then went into the ini file, searched for IK_P= and replaced all that with IK_A=

I had to deal with this when changing the peasant WASD keys to the more superior ESDF wink.gif

Suffice it to say, I'm not really sure why they locked down hotkey changes and hard coded movement keys. Pretty bone-headed move to lock down something as important as keybinds on a pc game of this caliber.

PS. Use something like notepad ++ and use the replace feature for the keys. You want to look for IK_W= IK_A= etc etc and replace all instances of those, as well as not to forget some lines of the code have a 'doubletapW' or 'doubletapA' that you want to change as well. and things labeled 'up' in those same key sequences need to also have the default hardcoded key changed from say W, to E. All these changes are within the parameters of searching for IK_W= and you'll see what I'm referring to.

Thank you smile.gif the controller usage in this does not feel quite as nice as it did in tw2. ESDF? Pfffff... I use TFGH biggrin.gif (That is only because i am a leftie (with only the m+k) and tfgh lets me hit spacebar easily, plus it gives more access to other keys for mmos too)

Far be it from me to judge whatever key combo you like. I use ESDF because it, too, gives me more access to hotkeys around my pinky and first finger. Just makes more sense to me in every aspect and all my buddies give me crap for it even after I point out that I have all the access they have with wasd + more. I suppose F1 could be hard for some peoples' keyboards, however. Plus, it's nice having your fingers in the default position for typing

There are still plenty of side quests that will remain if you've completed the game. Contracts are just a small portion of the possible side quests.

And you have to understand, the game is made so it's IMPOSSIBLE to do all of the quests in a single playthrough. I'm not far enough into The Witcher 3 yet to know for sure, but in The Witcher 2 there was a point in the game where you had to pick sides of the conflict to support, and some quests were only available to each side. So the only way you could see all of the quests would be to play through twice and pick a different side each time. It's actually quite nice that they do that so you can play through the game twice and yet have completely different experiences, visit completely different areas, and interact with completely different people each time. It's like getting two games in one that just have a common starting point and a similar ending point.
