Is this WAY over-sharpened in your opinion?



I decided that using all 3 sharpeners to a very mild extent is better than any specific one at a higher strength. The 3 sharpeners are - in-game sharpener (best set to Weak), LumaSharpen, and AdaptiveSharpen. Together they look awesome, but I think this shot I over-done it. With Witcher 3 its impossible to set sharpness right because high-resolution textures with a lot of detail will end up looking grainy and too sharp, while those rock and other low resolution textures will end looking real good or at least much better than the original ones.

No, looks good to me

This is the original shot with in-game sharpening by itself (set to Weak):




Looks a lot worse to me!

I was able to start it around 7pm last night - played the first few hours. So far it's just as engrossing as the rest of the main game! thumb.gif

Thanks so much. This resource let me dial up shadows and a few other details to ultra and drop HBAO to SSAO and get basically 5 more FPS! Running 44-52fps in most areas now, its playable at 50 for sure.

Shadows are indeed very important in this game. You should set CascadeShadowQuality=4, CascadeShadowDistanceScale0=4, CascadeShadowDistanceScale1=4, CascadeShadowDistanceScale2=3, CascadeShadowDistanceScale3=2. These shadows settings make a HUGE difference at a relatively low cost. I also urge you to add "UseMipRefiner=True" under Rendering in User.Settings. Disable Blur, Motion Blur, Vignette, and fully disable ALL of NVidia HairWorks. TextureMipBias looks best @ 0, and not @ -1 like the Ultra settings suggest.

Jeez guys. The DLC is literally one giant cut scene. I tried to listen but now I'm spamming skip as fast as possible for hours on end it feels like. I didn't want a drama, I wanted to kill monsters. I literally have no idea what's going on because I'm not going to sit for 45 min through 1 cut scene. Just left the wedding does it get better? frown.gif
