    yeah.. the cdpr forums have people complaining too. the gog servers are having problems.

    galaxy hasn't updated for me, been sat watching it for 10 minutes.

    just started the download from gog.com though. all 2.1GB of it


    edit2:

    2.1GB when downloaded using gog downloader.

    needs 7GB of space to install it.

    Their client, so yeah, looks like that's not quite working at the moment.

    Download should be 2.1Gb, but it's about 7Gb once unpacked.

    Re: The Witcher 3

    I've downloaded and installed it earlier. Haven't really had a chance to play with it much but going through t options there are a number of new video sliders for hair works, for the AA and general quality setting. Will have to see how they play with the AMD tesselation override I've been using.

    Apart from that I went straight for the 'alternate movement' option I'd heard about and it makes Geralt move instantly on direction chance. Basically it's a lot more sensitive and less old school Prince of Persia rotoscoping (for those old enough remember the original!)

    Didn't even get a chance to get round the menus etc yet but hopefully the inventory is better. If I'm honest it's crying out for a Sky UI type mod.

    Re: The Witcher 3

    Not a technical thing, but mind just blown by some of the characterisation I've just encountered. Bioware can eat their hearts out. Amazing.

    Re: The Witcher 3

    I'm hardly that far in to be honest but I really love the characters and the voice acting of the main characters.

    Re: The Witcher 3

    missed a few updates, so this posts a biggy


    patch 1.8
    http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threa...-1-08-out-now!
    PERFORMANCE:
    Overall improvements to performance, including some issues that may have been caused by 1.07.

    UI:
    [Japanese Only][PS4 Only] Fixes an issue where the background text of certain books would flicker.
    Fixes an issue where part of the Kaer Morhen map would not display properly.

    GAMEPLAY:
    Fixes a rare issue where items would disappear from the stash.
    Fixes a very rare issue which would cause Geralt to get stuck when trying to run.
    The interaction pop-up will no longer appear on lootable objects that are empty.
    Fixes an occasional glitch in one of the dwarf combat animations.
    Heads chopped off during finishers will no longer disappear.
    "Players can perform a roll just before landing to significantly reduce the damage caused by falling.
    We've added a tutorial pop-up window explaining this to make it clearer."
    In patch 1.07, the level requirements for certain items were scaled up, leaving some players stuck with only unusable gear. With patch 1.08, we are introducing the Wolven Hour potion. This potion will be available in everyone's inventory once they install the patch. It will reduce level requirements on all gear for a period of one hour. This will give players time to level up or find alternative equipment using the gear that was available to them in patch 1.05 but became unusable after patch 1.07. After one hour, the potion's effects will cease and the requirements for all gear will revert to their original, pre-potion values.
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to compare their items with ones sold by merchants.

    ACHIEVEMENTS:
    Players will now be able to complete the Card Collector achievement.
    Achievements are now working properly again and will be unlocked if players meet their requirements after installing this patch (PC version).

    GRAPHICS:
    Fixes an issue where interiors would sometimes not display properly on the minimap.
    Fixes an issue where certain world elements would sometimes be missing and noticeable visual glitches would be present while in Novigrad.

    QUEST:
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "It Takes Three to Tango" quest, even though they had obtained wine at the Kingfisher.
    Fixes an issue where Geralt would sometimes die after traveling to Velen in the quest "Something Ends, Something Begins."
    The entrance to the area where the Sunstone is obtained will no longer be blocked off if the player exits it prematurely during "The Sunstone" quest.
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to complete the "Get Junior" quest on certain occasions.
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "Scavenger Hunt: Viper School Gear" quest due to a closed gate.
    Fixes an issue where some players were unable to investigate rooms during the "Family Matters" quest, effectively blocking their progression.
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to finish the "Hey, You Wanna Look at my Stuff?" quest.
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to talk to Roche during the "An Eye for an Eye" quest.
    Fixes an issue where Roche would stay at his camp instead of going to the Oxenfurt Bridge in the "Get Junior" quest.
    Fixes an issue where, under certain circumstances, Yennefer would not appear in Oxenfurt during the "The Great Escape" quest.
    Drowners will have a harder time killing Nidas during the "Black Pearl" quest.
    Fixes an issue which led to an infinite loading screen during the "To Bait a Forktail..." quest under certain circumstances.
    Fixes a rare issue where the basement was locked during the "King's Gambit" quest.
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to free the merchant during the Person in Distress event in the Claywich area.
    The trolls at the Circle of Elements will no longer attack Geralt if he opts for a peaceful resolution.
    Fixes an issue where players were unable to talk to Roche during the "Brothers in Arms" quest.
    Fixes an issue where Zoltan's card was unobtainable.

    GENERAL:
    Preparatory features paving the way for the introduction of New Game + in the future.

    Patch 1.08.2 (17.08.2015)
    Introduces a retro-active fix to some of the achievements that were amended in the patch 1.08.
    Adds sources for scripts (mod support).


    theres now a Modkit http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threa...11#post1887011
    http://thewitcher.com/news/view/1094

    its not the full blown REDKIT2 people were expecting and 'theyre not planning on releasing anything else' https://twitter.com/Marcin360/status/632182348260470784 which does not mean they aren't working on the REDKIT2, its just they haven't set a planned release date, because they've no idea how long it'll take to make. could be another year, could be next week, who knows??



    NEW GAME + is out as the last DLC, install it as you did with the previous DLCS. this is the final official one for base game Witcher 3. next official things are the 2 Expansions in October and may ish.

    NG+ requires that you have 1.8.2 installed, no other version will work with it. to start it, you load up a save where you've finished the main quest. re save it so its saved with the 1.8.2 tags, then you can start a NG+ game .

    it basically allows you to play through the entire game again, with whatever equipment you had at end of previous save. with harder enemies.


    enjoy reading this long post.

    tldr: load up game launcher, patch it, bung on new DLCs, new modkit = user made stuff.

    for those wondering
    total file size on disk of fully patched basegame 1.8.2 , and all 16 DLCs is 31.7 GB (34,099,646,464 bytes)
    but you'll need 60GB ish space for install, due to file extractions and funky stuff during installing.

    Re: The Witcher 3

    And I have to say, I'm still loving this game and finding more and more wow moments. Could be the scenery, could be characterisation or just the odd quest that really, really makes you think.

    I think it is the characters and the love of detail that really brings this game to life, as opposed to Skyrim for example, which was too superficial.

    Re: The Witcher 3

    Completed this game last week, just before my computer stopped working properly, thankfully. Was one of the best RPGs ever, really enjoyed it and looking forward to the dlc and hopefully a new pc to replace the 6.75 years old one.

    Re: The Witcher 3

    Patch notes for patch 1.10 : http://t.co/YnHDg6iTqz or http://wpc.4d7d.edgecastcdn.net/004D...angelog_en.pdf forum page http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threa...1-10-Changelog

    I wont copy the notes into a quote box, there are 13 pages of them and apparently (according to the forum link link) that's not even a complete list of all the changes

    note: could be specific to my installation, but the already installed and updated to 1.08 Witcher3, it had to verify the files in galaxy, not sure why. as a result, its now saying theres 17GB to download.
    edit: yup, there's 17GB to download for all platforms, PS4 XBone, PC, enjoy https://twitter.com/witchergame/stat...400?lang=en-gb

    heres a screenshot of what there is to download in Galaxy



    the DLCs have all been combined into 1, so if you didn't previously download them individually, it appears you cant now choose which ones to install, its all or nothing.



    Hearts of Stone expansion is out 13th October.
    PC retail will need to buy GOG version.

    Mine's just downloading in galaxy, didn't need to verify. Wish they'd get incremental working better though!

    Boy, their server is being hammered

    0.1MB/s download currently in galaxy. usually get 1.8MB/s could be here a while.


    mine probably did the verify thing, because of windows reinstall and hadn't reinstalled the game, just had it on the games drive, it found it when galaxy opened and then went 'hang on, its not in the registry.. verify commence' or some such.


    something else I just realised, I need to download the patch as a standalone .exe for future install/backup/save waiting on download purposes
    need to download via gog.com and the gog downloader tool , then run the patch, load up galaxy, it looks at folder, bobs your uncle.

    just logged into gog.com and downloading via the gog downloader links. https://www.gog.com/downloader/listi...wild_hunt_game
    still only getting 60KB/s

    Phew, going a bit quicker this morning

    Little worried - several reports of glitches on the forums, but we'll see.
