Hi Barb smile

The first "Witcher" is one of those rarer RPGs I've managed to finish not once but twice !! dance
I, along with so many others, thought it an absolutely brilliant game yay

But you definitely need the "enhanced" version for speed of play yes

Cheers.

Hi Mad smile I have the original version that I bought when it first came out. Will that work?

No, it won't work any more. You will need to download the Enhanced Version to be able to play it. But then, you REALLY want to have the enhanced version anyway. It fixed a lot of bugs and problems that people were having such as interminable load times between scenes. You can get it free if you have an account at GOG and enter your ID code. I have the original version too and they don't register it at the Witcher website any more.

There is also a little more content in the download copy from GOG because I believe it is called the directors edition or some such. Anyway there is more of a back story in the introduction in this version.

I'm ordering the Witcher from GOG. Is that all I need to do?

That's all. It will download an installer and then you click on the installer and when it finishes you will be ready for a lot of fun times.

Combat takes a while to get used to but there are a lot of people on this board who can help you.

Barb, there is a visual indicator you can turn on to help you get used to the rhythm of the combat. wave

Barb, if you already have the original version, you don't have to buy it again. There is a way to enter your code at GOG and you get the download free. I did it with Witcher 2.

I grew to love the combat so much better than the mad clicking in all the other games.
