I may accidentally give away some (minor) plot details so don't read ahead if you don't want to have the story spoiled.
I need the eternal fire signet ring in order to get the quests early on, helping the merchant and the other dudes that the reverand says you need to get to trust you, but I can't find that ring! I loaded an old (OLD) game save and its there, but now its missing! What can I do!?!
I hear that the TAGES copy protection system removes essential items/characters to make the game unplayable if it thinks that the game is pirated, but it can misfire... So how can I fix this? I bought the boxed enhanced edition, so the CD check is still in place (apparently vanilla The Witcher with the downloaded patch removes the CD check?).
Is there any in-game way around the problem? Any way of adding the item to my inventory via the game directory? Of do I just have to go back to that old gamesave and go again from there?
BTW, this is my first playthrough of the game so please don't discuss further ahead in the story, I glanced through the Game Guide that came with the Enhanced Edition to see if it could help me....
