    ...how? I am totally perplexed. In any case, I do not recall any of them being mandatory and was there not an option to switch QTE off (at least other than the minigame) in the options?

    I think that only disables the cut-scene stuff (jumping in to save the King, etc.).

    Yeah, you are right, it was "Difficult QTEs". Whatever that means...

    Anyway, I finally had time to finish the game once. Great game, maybe I will even write a small review. But now, time for a second run as the entire second and partly the third chapter are different depending on your choices earlier.

    Me either, really. If it was only the button itself that showed onscreen, it would be a different story, but the placement of the indicators is like the WASD, i.e. to the left, right, up or down of the screen, so it's not that difficult to get the right button. The other QTEs are, as mentioned, optional (you can disable them in the menu), but seem to be only left and right mouse button presses, which is something I can still manage.

    i regret

    [​IMG] My problem is that the game is unplayable because of mouse lag.

    My PC is brand new and passes all the system requirements - But the mouse lags too much to even play it :(

    I also had problems with the lousy install shield.


    I regret having spend money on this crap.

    Never buy anything from Poland, i guess, arrrgh :mad:

    Purchased both, and am currently playing through the first. It's kinda difficult for games of this era, which are relatively obvious and easy. This one isn't obvious, though it's logical I guess. Dl'ed a combat rebalance mod and CH1 did frustrate the hell(hound) out of me, but I'll manage. Story is great.

    Apparently this is a known issue, which should have been improved in the 2.1 patch, as far as I see on the official The Witcher forum. It's a shame this is ruining the game for you, as it is an otherwise excellent game.

    Yeah that final battle in chapter 1 can be rather frustrating. In chapter 2 the swamp can get rather tedious, so you might want to group your quests so as to minimise the visits to the swamp.

    To fix the mouse lag try experimenting with different graphics settings. Especially with the various DOF, Vsync and mouse smoothness settings. Some of these can only be changed by modifying the user.ini file directly and not via the configuration utility. There are several threads on thewitcher.com forums regarding this issue which may help you in tracking down the settings that fix the problem.

    On another note, I have recently been enjoying the new Enhanced Edition of The Witcher 2. The new content is great and best of all, completely free. Any other publisher would have sold this as a $10 DLC.

    Playing it on xbox. Done with...chapter one. So far, it hasn`t hooked me completely, but I am loving the graphics and the setting.

    thx

    [​IMG]
    Thx Erod. I also have the EE version ;)

    I tried all possible settings but the mouse lag is still there. Hope to find a solution soon, I'm going crazy. I have been reading all the threads on the witcher forums, but nothing helps so far - Frustrating :(


    If I had money I would buy a console i guess - Then again, i love my keybord :cool:
