Patch details

CD Projekt RED announces the release of Patch 1.1, which brings important improvements to The Witcher 2, the highly acclaimed game released a week ago. The most noticeable change is the removal of the DRM protection world-wide. This gives players the freedom to install and play the game on any number of computers, and no activation code is required.

Other notable improvements include frame rate increases of approximately up to 30%, especially noticeable on DRMed versions and low spec systems, better stability, and non-problematic installation of free DLCs (the first free DLC, the "Troll Trouble" quest, is incorporated into the patch), the possibility of inverting the mouse and re-mapping directional control on the keyboard, and more.

Adam Badowski, CD Projekt RED Development Director, commented, “Our goal is to make our fans and customers happy and to reward them for buying our game and DRM schemes does not support our philosophy as they might create obstacles for users of legally bought copies. Our approach to countering piracy is to incorporate superior value in the legal version. This means it has to be superior in every respect: less troublesome to use and install, with full support, and with access to additional content and services. So, we felt keeping the DRM would mainly hurt our legitimate users. This is completely in line with what we said before the release of The Witcher 2. We felt DRM was necessary to prevent the game being pirated and leaked before release. This purpose has been served, so we are pleased to let our users enjoy the full freedom of game usage they deserve.”

Badowski also explained CD Projekt RED’s stance on DRM from another perspective, "It’s important to remember that the PC platform is far more complex than consoles. DRM adds another layer of complication and potential problems. We saw this clearly in our game. Pre-release tests showed only small performance differences compared to the DRM-free (GOG.com) versions. We were unpleasantly surprised when some of our fans reported much larger differences, up to 30% lower framerates. This was another clear signal that we had to remove DRM as soon as possible – the quality of our users’ gameplay experience is absolutely our number one priority!"

Regarding the other fixes and improvements, Badowski further stated, "Patch 1.1 is also very important because it overcomes the major technical obstacles some of our customers encountered with installation and activation. We believe that after installing the patch, practically all users will be able to enjoy the game without flaws. At the same time, I would like to assure everyone that we will continue working on post- release support. Therefore, if there are things that still bother users with certain system configurations, they can expect them to be resolved soon as well. What is equally important, we are constantly reviewing feedback from our fans and looking through their requests and we will be adding new functionality and enhancements to the game to make sure gamers can enjoy the most out of the Witcher 2. We are also pleased to advise our fans who purchased the Russian-language edition that (contrary to what we communicated earlier) Patch 1.1 will function for them.”

This one is 15mb and its not a launcher, maybe its like a pre patch. Fuck if i know.

48 hit for wraith i mean how am i meant to compete with that so 2-3 kills and im dead! and when they hit its a few in a row so you instantly die if they do hit you. The only way to beat those 2 bastard wraith is not to get hit at all and ive died several times already. Just there a wraith hit me for over 100 i mean COME ON FOR FUCK SAKE.

Nekkers are another weird enemy, sometimes i can kill them easily other times its the opposite.

I just turned it off, i need to take a break otherwise i might smash my keyboard. I used traps to damage the first set of wraiths later on you fight 2 more and they are easier to doge because of the level layout but still pretty solid.

As soon as i get the thing that reduces back stabbing damage by 200% i might get on better.

Is the 9gb patch like patch 1.2 or something? Im still confused.
I think you maybe thinking of the launcher since you stated it is only :love:0mb. The 1.1 patch is 9GB's no matter how you look at it, erocker already posted a screeny confirming its size..

How i see it with the steam version it replaces the whole 9GB file were as with the hard copy the installer edits the 9GB file.

And the file according to steam is wrong or different for the Steam version as i have a file here at 9.6GB called pack0.dzip. Or steam don't tell you about the other .6GB.

EDIT BTW the patch changes the exe's in the game both the launcher and witcher as well as my firewall complained about them being modified as well.

the thing with the wraiths thats the mission in the old mental hospital,right?thats where I ended up before I went to sleep..yes wraiths are one sone of a bitches,first couple I defeated by using the sign which turns one agains other,of course its lasts some time,but as long as one is attacking other,you have more room for dodging.and one more tip,blades seems not very effective agains tem,but that flame sign is great agains them!

Make sure you're using your siver sword and not the other.

if we are speaking about it,in what situations is silver sword better?for example atm my other sword,a cutlass which I got from a bandit hideout after I got the key from the bad bandit that killed the trolls wife,is dealing much more damage,plus I was able to apply few upgrades to it.so its pretty good.

Of course i use silver swords vs monsters so its not that which was the problem, i was just find that section difficult because wraiths deal massive damage. Nekkers arnt giving me so much trouble now. You just have to use the signs in a variety of manners like vs monsters the Quen shield sign is brilliant at taking powerful hits. Aard sign is good for doing one hit kills, you get a cool finisher cutscene. I used the Quen sign to take the wraiths hits and just plowed it with swift light and heavy combos.

The steel swords deal much reduced damage to monsters vs using a plain witchers silver sword.

EDIT: BTW i got passed that section with the wraiths, i can now kill them pretty easily making me wonder why i had so much trouble the first time.

Downloaded and installed the 1.1 patch and updated to 11.5b drivers and now I'm getting nice framerates at 2560x1600 with crossfire working. Game looks beautiful at that resolution. I have everything on except ubersampling. I haven't tried it yet but will see how it impacts performance later.

Trap it's tentacles with yrden, there are two on either side, go for the long ones first. The shorter ones are easier to dodge. Attack at the big red bulbus thing, then you'll hack through it. Once you got the third one, it'll sweep you up on one and you'll need to to do some button hitting, then it'll be trapped by the bridge once it collapses. Then run on to the bridge and hack at it's face.

As you look at it, go for long left, the short left, then long right.

Use Quen, that absorbs a great deal of damage, and it's mostly hang back, then yrden, then lure her into the trap

So I have finished the game, clocked in at 37 hours on normal, following the route of Iorveth.

Enjoyed the game very much, though it does have it's down falls...

I would have loved it to be more open world, having the ability to travel in the world map would have been a great edition, revisiting old towns etc. Perhaps even going on hunts in other towns would have been good too, instead of just side quests. Actual hunts, like go kill this dragon, or get that scorpion thing out of this town. Something that made you see Geralts skills would have been great.

Another factor is the economy side of it. I don't know about any one else but buying things is SO expensive. You have to craft things, now whilst that is fun, it can become really tedious when all you want is some robust cloth and you have to go get this that and the other to make some precursor because you just can't afford to buy it all. There seems to be a severe lack of orens. And whilst I do NOT want to see nekkers and harpies dropping loot, finding more than just 4 orens in a house cupboard would be fantastic.

Overall though, I did enjoy the game, and I will be doing it again to complete the other side of the game. It does feel short though, like maybe going for longetivity instead of choices would have been an idea, however I believe the free DLC will introduce that in time. An expansion would be great, like retracing your steps during the hunt would be nice.

All in all, a very good game, and was very pleased to play it. If I had to give it a score it would be 8/10, minusing the points lost as stated above.

For some reason I don't feel hooked to this game, you have no idea how I WORSHIPED the first game, I played it for 2 hours but still didn't feel the excitement, maybe it's because of the bugs, or maybe because Geralt have yet to sleep with any woman, maybe that's what made me love the first game, the ability to sleep with countless women several times :D.

Oh well, I'll give it a week or two for the patches to be released then I'll play it.

speaking about that,I find it utterly disappointing that you can rob anybody anywhere and no one gives a shit!!In Gothic,If you would steal and they would see you,the owner of the house would try to beat you,if you would kill him and someone would see you,everyone is after you...and even if you would manage to kill someone without being seen,soldiers would still stop you (as a stranger in town) and accuse you of robbery or murder and if you wouldnt be able(or willing to bribe - if option available)you would make the whole town your enemy and as a consequence a totally different aproach to the quests..now thats what I call interesting way of gameplay.

EDIT: and yes,I will never forgive this game that its sooo not open world and so scripted where you can go and where not....as I mentioned before,I got few times in a situation(when I didnt know yet) where while running from bnuch of enemies and trying to take them out one by one,I run up some stairs with no barriers,obviously fallowed by all of the foes,just to realise that I cant even jump of the godamn stairs to escape - so I helplessly watched myself being slaughtered...

What's to forgive? It's the type of game it is. It never preached to be an open world game so if you wanted an open world game like that wait for Skyrim, don't hate on The Witcher 2 because you didn't realise what you were buying.

As for the burglary part I agree that's pretty silly and the economy could certainly use an overhaul as well as the weight limits on what you can hold etc. (or at least a more managable inventory system where you could sort by weight etc. perhaps?)

All in all though it's a great game and certainly seems to achieve what it sets out to do minus few annoying factors that they might tweak.
