The Witcher 2

I ended up with a gig of DX saves. While I overdid it, I guess the way they did the saves just made it worse.

I think it was the first game's quicksave feature that didn't distinguish between quicksaves and regular saves and used a new slot every time? Swamped my SSD full of hundreds of saved games. :lol:

Oh dear God, now you're making me relive that :( and I also had the Tages crashing with the video card every hour or so. The horror.


I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

Considering TW1's penchant for crashing, it's for the better that saves aren't automatically overwritten. If the game crashes while saving, you'd lose the savegame and all your progress.

?

 

Two full playthroughs and I can't remember a single crash. It might have crashed couple times, but if it did, it was so rare I really don't remember it. Then again, I played it only when it was already gotten the last patch, so I don't know how it was before. Or was I just lucky?

Probably.

I've had it crash several times with 1.5 (never had lower, got EE version some time ago)

I agree that that is such a stupid idiotic pathetic garbage hateful retarded scumbag evil satanic nazi like term ever created. At least top 5.

Only got one crash, so to speak, black screen when entering a crypt at the end of the game.

It crashed occaisionally for me, both the regular and EE. Not nearly so much as other games such as Fallout 3 though.


Notice how I can belittle your beliefs without calling you names. It's a useful skill to have particularly where you aren't allowed to call people names. It's a mistake to get too drawn in/worked up. I mean it's not life or death, it's just two guys posting their thoughts on a message board. If it were personal or face to face all the usual restraints would be in place, and we would never have reached this place in the first place. Try to remember that.

My saved games directory for TW1 was 12 GB I **** you not. After I suffered some early crashes I got into the habbit of quicksaving every other minute it seems. The only reason that I noticed the large save game folder was that I was trying to figure out why it took 4 minutes to load the game.

It crashes every hour or so for me. I blame the ****ty Aurora engine.

Apparently the game will support only 16:9 aspect ratio.

Other resolutions will get black bars.

 

Anyone else find it hilarious that after all the emphasis CDP placed on graphics and supporting the PC platform they messed up something so simple?

Not a significant deal for me, but I guess some people might complain.

They've updated their FAQ. It says the game supports 16:9, 16:10, and 4:3.

Yes.

I currently have this preordered at gamestop for a physical copy, but am highly thinking to cancel that and go with a preorder through gog themselves. What is everyone else doing for this release?

I preordered on gog months ago. There is no good reason to get TW2 any other way unless you have some kind of special arrangement.

 

It seems you can predownload a week early, you get a free GOG game and other stuff, and most importantly, no DRM. Non-GOG versions feature securom - a very light version (one-time online identification), but still.

Yeah you can pre-download the game (if you pre-order) on GOG on May 10th. Then just dl the small remaining bits on the 11th. And their no DRM policy is awesome. It's the only reason I bought (and I still own the original) IWD, because the original CD's have the horrifying Stardock DRM D:

Well there is one reason, if you happen to want a lifesize Geralt head.

I bet that a lifesized Triss boobs statue would sell better. Especially after the last screens of her being topless got public.

Hopefully not. I assume there are a lot more 16:10s around, in fact I'd assume that most of the high-end screens are. I use mostly just stripped down samsung lcd tvs as displays, so I tend to peak out at 16:9 1920x1080, so can't say for sure.


You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Yeah, got 1920x1080 too (although a real PC monitor). They don't even sell 4:3 monitors here anymore.

I am! Hopefully that makes your life a little bit harder, ha!

 

Some people are even still using old CRT's and I don't understand what the problem is with that. It's not like it is slowing the game industry down or anything.

I don't have a widescreen monitor because I fear that the screen width on older games could become ****ed up / stretched and I play more old games than new games anyway.
