Hi Maggie!

There are two version updates depending on whether you downloaded the patch and extra content, or bought the new Witcher in a retail boxed version that was all inclusive.

The version you have (1.4.5.1280) is the boxed and the downloaded version for previous owners (that I have) is 1.4.5.1282. You don't need the other update, your game just thinks it does lol.

Marilyn- thumbsup thanks

Thanks so much, I thought either the game or I was crazy, I had bought the first game and then bought the second game, but when it kept blinking update, I thought I had a serious problem. Thanks so much for letting me know. It went on in a breeze, no problems at all and got it all registered. Now I can play again with no worries. Thanks again for your help.

maggie wave praise praise praise yay

I am assuming there is no difference between the download and the full retail new, I wonder why it blinks though??

_________________________________________________________________

I am already seeing a difference between the two games, Leo and Lambert have different voices and I like the map that pop up when Geralt is on his way to Vizima outskirts. Also other small changes in words in sentences. But so far no problems (knock on wood) and the game looks great......

But the most important thing is they kept Geralt's voice the same! I love listening to him...

My game version for the Enhanced is 1.7 and I also saw the blinking update thing but now ignore it because why would I need a lower number patch?

Well my game is still not registered but at least it now stopped launching AOL and goes right to the game launcher when I insert the disk.

Tech support has answered my email and it will be interesting to see what they say.

Well starting to get used to the game a little and fighting is becoming less of a problem then in the beginning.

I have picked the easy mode for my game playing so maybe that is helping me to stay alive.

I have many quests now and just finished doing the fighting with the venus flytrap type plants for one of the people I have to gain trust from.

Have to go into the crypt next but have to see if I can find a torch somewhere because its really dark in there. eeek.

Well, I did say I didn't intend to play the Enhanced Version immediately - now I can't lol

The lads haven't yet finished my new computer - keep meeting snags. Waited all day yesterday for them to complete transferring data from my old one to the new then, because of the larger fan discovered the case would not fit eek

Whatever, this morning a loan PC arrived - no games on it but it is allowing me to write e-mails (on the dreaded AOL) and can at least come on to Gameboomers.

Marylyn, to date have sent only one e-mail on AOL, and that was to you. Can you check please?

rolleyes Life goes on.

Just to get things straight in my oft times muddled brain ....

Does the entirely new, enhanced, boxed retail version of the game need to be updated ??

Cheers.

Mad, as I understand it, the new enhanced version from brick and mortar stores does not need patching. But if I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will tell me. wave

I think Looney is right.

I don't have the original Witcher but I thought this enhanced version was suppose to come with extra stuff and all patches needed if you did have the original game.

Like I said my version is 1.7 and I did not see patches with a higher number.

Shouldn't patches have a higher number?

I got the version numbers from 'Cheat Happens'. That's how I found out there was a difference in versions between the boxed and downloaded content (I didn't think that maybe their numbers might be for the separate Trainers that had to be made for both Enhanced versions oops) . From what I gather, the patches are the same, but different. Does that make sense?

The boxed version is fully updated already unless they come out with another update in the future. My update quit blinking as soon as I downloaded and installed all the new content. Took a full day to do it all! I downloaded the patch (v1.4), language (English) files, bonus content, and both new adventures. I didn't download the music.

Sorry if I mislead you Maggie! That's what happens when a person is brain dead to begin with insane.

VHL, you can also brew up a Cat potion to let you see better in the crypts. The problem with the torch is that you have to either drop it and switch to your sword to fight the ghouls in the dark or you have to fight them with the torch itself!

Get enough money - at least 200 orens - and go find the Antiquary in the Inn. Buy the book on plants from him. That will allow you to be able to identify plants that have the ingredients you need for different potions. Also try to buy the book on creating spells as soon as you can. In fact, buy or find as many of the books on creatures, monsters and spells you can.

Oh Thank You for the info Draclvr and I will look for the Antiquary. Hope I have enough money. smile

I also find that if I get into a dark place that making the monitor brighter helps but not always. Have to get more spells.

***Ok.....off to look for more books.***

Does this game have any teleporters??? Seems like a long hike from one end of the town area to the other. Phew.

At least the tavern owner will store stuff for you and thats good.

There are a couple of teleporters later in the game, but for the most part, you have to do a lot of running around!

I think it will not be till section 3 till a teleporter is used. They will be at three different spots. But as Drac says, you do lots of running around and lots of going to the swamp (uck), I still dislike that place. When one of those plants first popped up out of the ground, I fell off my chair. rotfl

Witcher is one of those games that rewards you for running around, though. Lots of experience and alchemy ingredients to be found in nasty swampy places, for example. And some of the higher level monsters respawn, so it's worth spending time wandering.

I guess I'd better check to see if the boxed enhanced version is available locally. I'd buy a second copy of the game in a heartbeat just for the added materiel.

I noticed the guard Jethro now has a mustache, funny looking, I am in Vizima, have made lots of Cat Potion, so will not get lost in the dark. Really enjoying the game, did anyone notice that the fire starts differently in the little village outside of Vizima???

hagatha is right, you do find tons of things, well not tons but lots and lots, the books and scrols are some of the best help. I steal them from houses and those I can't find I buy and then sell back.

Isn't there any place to just buy the potions that you need?
I never make my own in these games but I guess if there is no other choice then I will have to.

Where exactly do you find the ingredients like say for the cat potion?

VHL- grin

There was never a place in the first game and I doubt there is in this game. Once you have the plants, click on any books, read them by right clicking on them and then sell them back. Then you can get all the plant material you need. It is so easy to make the potions. You rest and where your inventory and all comes up a vial comes up and you click on that, it will show which ones you can make. In one or two click you have them made. I will let you know if I find anyone new who has them to buy, maybe they do this time.
You know the hospital in Vizima, the bushes there, click on each one and those help you make Cat. I think I have 12 Cat potions, it is the one I make the most of. Also find a torch, see the sellers in Vizima or steal one from a house, they are good to use if you do not have Cat.
Click on list of ingredients and it will tell you what you need for each potion, some you will only find in the swamp, if you kill the undead, save brains and such and same with other monsters, save all.

Good Luck

Thank You Maggie for the info. smile
I don't have the first game only the enhanced one so don't know what was in the first one.
I am only in the first town area so have not found the hospital yet.
I need to go into the crypt(which is really dark)to kill the gouls (I think) to get a pass from one of the gatekeepers.
I don't think I have the ingredeients that I need for the cat potion yet so guess I will have to find a torch for now.

VHL thumbsup

Are you in Vizama? If so you will find the hospital, but if you are in the little village outside of it, no hospital at all, but you will find a doctor, female. You don't need a pass to get into the crypt and since I had not made Cat yet was able to finish without the potion, you will just go in. Last time there was a key, this time no key. Search any house and all their furniture and see if you find a torch, you will find most will just stare at Geralt, or maybe call him a name.

Good Luck

If VHL is still in Chapter 1, she won't find the hospital just yet. Isn't it Chapter 2 where you finally get into Vizima and find the hospital? I can't remember for sure. I'm still in the outskirts of Vizima myself.

Maggie is right - making potions is easy. You just have to get some of the books that give you the formulas and let you recognize the plants and other ingredients. You just have to read them (I actually don't - I just right click on them!) and then the knowledge is added to your Journal. Then sell the books right back.

VHL, both versions are essentially the same game; the enhanced version just has more content and lots of other good stuff.

Yes, the hospital is in part 2, but Shani is in part 1 on the outskirts, and the witch is too, to get books and some things for potions. I am finding so much more speech content, longer sentences, different sentences, it is really so much better and I didn't see how it could be.

Take care

It's a good idea to raid all the houses for books and scrolls, and don't forget to talk to everyone.
Click to reveal..
Talk to all of the little old ladies, even if they're rude to you at first. They will give you valuable plant lore in exchange for a little food. Keep talking to them until you get no more information
