[Official] The Witcher 3 Information & Discussion Thread - Page 36

post #351 of 5145
I though I would share some findings with you guys to make your Witcher3 experience a little better, particularly if you are using an ultra-wide resolution.

FOV, requires cheat engine though.REDDIT LINK

No, I dont play like the first screenshot, just showing that it works. Its adjustable with the +/- on the NUMPAD, or you can just set the value you want in cheat engine.

Also, those with bigger than 16:9 wide screens, you can edit the Users\....\Documents\The Witcher 3\user.settings to whatever resolution you like.

Also+Also, you can use that same file to edit "uiHorizontalFrameScale=" to push the hud out to the side a little further. (I am playing 3840x1600 and using 1.3 in the screenshots)






Sorry if any of this has been mentioned before. I dont feel like reading 35 pages right now. I would rather jump back into this awesome game and catch up on the thread later! thumb.gif

I placed some bombs in the right slots and keep pressing middle mouse button, but NADA - Gerlat won't throw jack!

this took me a minute, i didnt figure it out until a while after the griffon fight.

It's on the same option wheel that you select signs. then you can shoot it with the to right trigger button if you are using an xbox controller.


Huge complaint, why doesn't meditating auto save??? FFS

I've played for just under 7 hours and haven't fought the Griffen yet. Although I think some of that time can be accounted for by the game not exiting properly. The exe carries on in the background. redface.gif.

Anyone else playing on the second to hardest difficulty?


Also, I went through NVIDIA's tweak guide to go 'above and beyond' Ultra preset, with foliage distancing and caster shadows etc. All of the ones they recommend in the guide. Didn't work out well at all...

Roughly 39 to 56 FPS in the initial part of the map when the game opens up over three TITAN X along with some horrific stuttering. redface.gif.

Some tweaking required there. I went back to Ultra for the time being.


[EDIT] Oh, enjoying the game - but my god are the swimming controls cantankerously crap. It's as though they've never played a game before lol.

I am playing on the second hardest difficulty too. Did you kill the wraith who is early on guarding a crypt? That was the first thing that i did, and it did not go too well, but 2 deaths later i beat it ^^ Those wraiths sure were a lot more forgiving in TW2

lol i agree swimming is a pain i really had to mess with my controls to get some i like on my keyboard im a old school gamer i like using my direction keys insteal of typical setup. Just had my first crash in 13hrs of gametime and it was caused by my av poping in background causing game to crash.

Performance seems pretty good for me so far. A few crashes but nothing major. Everything maxed but Nvidia Hairworks off (kills the framerate) i'm averaging around 40fps.

The game runs at excellent framerate, but there is occasional stutter, even at 70fps+ when used with 350.12 drivers + 352.86 Witcher 3 profile. 352.86 drivers produce 0 stutters in Witcher 3, but they freeze my system and cause all kinds of crazy havoc!

Just curious, as this is the first place I've seen this.

I'm Running the Following:

i7 4770k
16Gb RAM
2x GTX 980's SLi

All on Windows 10074 with Nvidia Driver 352.84

At 1080p, Everything Ultra with some silly Post-Processes turned off, like DOF and Blurs as they only irritate me. I get a solid 60+ FPS with a weird lag-hitch every so often, not related to frames at all.

If I were to do as you suggest above, would I benefit?
