Found an excuse to sit and rest my legs late morning so loaded the game. grin
Need three badges to convince Leuvaarden we are on the same side. Since then have been dispatching assassins all over the place but only picked up two badges. How I wish I hadn't been selling them to the Messenger.

At last got Shani to mention the Coen silver sword. The only help I got was to talk to Zoltan - looked everywhere but think he's taking a long holiday in the Carribean. rotfl

Drclvr - I'm finding pots of dog lard in strange places, perhaps the strangest being in dead wolves.

One of the most odd things is the fact I'm picking up orens from the bodies of drowners. Where on earth do they keep cash? - No don't answer that one laugh

And that is me finished for the day.

Night, night.

Early start tomorrow but prefer to not have the fire-alarm starting the day as it did this morning. Was cleaning my teeth at the time and nearly swallowed the toothbrush. As the brush is battery driven nearly received a much more thorough cleaning than expected. whistle

You never know, you might be dancing if you swallowed that! grin

Zoltan - during the day I think I found him on the streets near Vivaldi's, and at night at Vivaldi's house or the inn. When he wasn't in the Carribean, of course. rotfl

Ahhhhh, nope, don't want to take that contract--or if I do, don't use the pots of dog lard eek

What is the name of this contract--I sure won't have fun killing dogs <what were they thinking>

When Hubby and I play BG, he has to kill the wolves--they look too much like dogs for me to do it lol

Ok, another question. I thought I read that if I put a talent in a skill enhancement and had not mediated, I could take it back, but at the moment, I can't seem to figure it out. Does anyone know?


Ok, and yet another question. I am in Chapter 2 and I
Click to reveal..
have killed the cockatrice and am killing spider cultist, but I can't figure out how to get back to the jail so I can get the rest of my stuff. Am I not supposed to go back to jail? I had a whole lot of stuff and I want it back!

wave Hi Nickie. Well I am playing the bronze campaign easy mode and I have finished Odo quest and lit all the eternal flames. I gathered the 5 mryrtle flowers and the boy spoke about the beast in that errie voice that belongs in a horror game. Yikes! scared

I have not gone into the crypt or cave yet. Is the cave hard? I need to find out what happened to a guys friend. I also was hoping to buy a better sword but when I went back to try and find hargis again I could not find him by his home or on the dock. Where did he go? I really wanted a better sword and saved up 200 to buy it. One thing I have noticed the game writers are sure stingy with the gold after all the battles you would think we would get more gold.

Also I want to learn how to make the oil like spector oil etc. I know the recipe but when I try a message comes up and says I don't know how to make the oil. How do I learn how to make the various oils to put on the blade?

Last question the ghouls are a tough battle even one on one. In the crypt is it a tough battle? if more than one ghoul attacks me I think I will be in trouble.

Now for a comment, something strange is happening in my game. I am crashing to the desktop with a message explorer stoped working and a fatal error comes up crashing me to desktop and closing Witcher.

I did not patch the game because I bought the retail game. Do you think I need to patch the game? Anyone else having this problem? Especially when I go to save a game sometimes this is happening and I lose the last game spot and have to go to the previous save game. This is happening quite a few times. What should I do?

EDIT AGAIN.....................
Maggie you asked me a question
Did you find the guy who sells things to the squirrels? The road is not far from him. Watch out for the drowners if it is nighttime.

No Maggie I didn't find the man who sells stuff to the squirrels.Where is he and how can I find him? I have walked all over by Hagis boat and cargo. Thanks in advance

Thanks to all who recommended this game and all who are helping me.

Sherryah PS I am just curious what a man looks like who has a sexy voice like Geralt. Does anyone have a picture of the man whose voice this is?

EDIT................
I forgot to add I have Vista 32 home premium even though it is a retail game should I patch it?

You should not try the crypt unless you have made several Cat potions to help you see in there.

To make the oils you will have to level up in one of your skills to be able to do that. Don't remember which one.

Don't get rid of your steel Witcher's sword. Many of the ones you can buy do not allow you to use the Witcher fighting style. It's good to carry a couple of extras that you find on defeated enemies. A few of them are good backups. Plus you can sell them for more money. Once you get to the swamp and can kill lots of Drowners, you can make a lot of money selling Drowner brains too.

There is a small fishing enclave along the river between the outskirts and the bridges to Vizima. That's where the guy is who sells to the squirrels. He is one of your quest guys too - his name is Haren.

I have no idea what to say about the game crashing. I know there were some issues with Vista, but I thought the current patch/upgrade which you have with your retail version took care of it. You might try posting at the Witcher forum. They are really helpful there.

Hi ya Sherryah, I'm just ahead of you a little.

I have done both the cave and the crypt. It's not too bad. I did it by using Axii and blowing people away from me so I could concentrate one on one. Remember, if you are in a group you need to use the group fighting style and for some baddies you need the fast and others need the strong.

To make oil, I think you have to put a bronze talent in that skill (at least I think I did and then I could)

I've noticed that if I leave Outlook open, the game does not close down correctly, but closing it before I play seems to do the trick for me.

You should not need to patch the game if you are playing the enhanced edition.

Are you talking about Haran? If so, he's across the river. I found him sorta by accident. I was running along the river trying to find a way to his house and couldn't.

So I went into isometric mode and just clicked on the opposite bank. Geralt took off running and took me straight to him. luck


Drac, I have an inventory question. A lot of the time when I want to pick up a sword, the game tells me my inventory is full, yet I see empty space???

Also, where I can store stuff in Vizimir?

L4l, that is still something that aggravates me in this game. The only slots weapons can go into are the rectangular ones alongside Geralt. If you already have a weapon in the slot that fits it, you can't pick it up. So, go sell what you have so you have room to pick up something else.

well I just crashed again. I have nivida 8800 GT card and vista 32 home premium. 3 Gig of ram. It is not a explorer error I am getting a windows error and its fatal when it happens no warnings. Anyway I just cleared out the crypt and only took one cat potion and necro on my blade. I got the drowners for rev. and also met and fought the squirrel guy and his thugs at the river. hope I made the right choice to defend harlem. I save often so the crash didn't hurt too bad. played for hours this time before the crash.

Does anyone know if I use the patch will it remove my save games? I sure don't want to fight some of those battles over again. I also defended the alchemist on the bridge and won that battle also. So as you can see I have made alot of progress. Really love this game. I like the calm personality of Geralt wish I could get that calm in the face of calamity.

Strange thing is Interact was suppose to send me the uncensored version and I got the censored version. I thought the international version was uncensored? It came with the all the game manuals and the one people were complaining from with Atari had the game manual online and not in paper. Can someone explain to me how I could have gotton the uncensored version?

Sherryah
EDIT.................
I forgot to ask you Geralt can not hold 2 swords can he? I want to be able to sell stuff but how can you do that when it will not go into inventory? unless I am doing something wrong. last time I tried to pick up another weapon it forced me to drop the one that I had.

You don't have to kill any of those doggies, you know. By the middle of Chapter 3 you'll have found enough Dog Tallow In houses to complete the quest.

Oh, and to take back a spent talent, you'd have to exit the resting screen -- by setting the rest time to zero.

Yes, you go back to the jail to get your stuff. It's behind the church. It should be marked on your map. You may have to find Vincent first to give him the cockatrice head. You can find him during the day past the jail in the training yard.

Hagatha, thanks! I just can't kill dogs, not even in a game.

When I was little, my sister and I were walking home from the movies and I was crying hysterically because the doggie died in the movie. People kept stopping to see what was wrong. My sister was so mad at me!

Thanks for the resting info. Thought I had read that I could, but I couldn't find the info again.

Thanks Drac, I got my stuff back and I'm a happy camper now happydance

Sherryah, I had that same question. Swords don't go into your normal inventory--they go into the weapons slots for your character. So you have to drop one to get one sad I've left so many swords lying.

Geralt will carry two swords. He needs both his steel and his silver sword.

Why do you think your version is censored? I know I got the international one with the paper manual, and mine is definitely not censored lol

If you have the enhanced game on DVD, then the patch isn't going to do anything for you (at least that is what I understand. My game does ask me to update it, but when I click on the link it takes me to a page and there is no update for my version.

It is fun, isn't it? wave

L4l thanks for your reply. My update now is flashing also and takes me to a page that explains updates and one is for vista 32. However I am not going to patch it if I would lose all my save games or if it is hard to apply.

I am just assuming that I may have the uncensored version because thus far nothing rated 18 has occured. Any Sex scene is blurred and a playing card comes up with a bare chested woman. This isn't considered a uncensored version is it? The blood is just stains on the ground and corpses are nothing offensive. So if this is the uncensored version what is all the excitement about?

Do you also have vista 32? Do you or anyone else have a fatal error with a windows crash where microsoft box appears and says Witcher has stopped working and looking for a way to repair it. Of course there is no repair so the box has to be cancelled and the witcher game is gone and must be relaunched.

Sherryah
EDIT......................
It says right on the black box that it is the enhanced version but doesn't say anything else. I really want to know because if I was accidently sent the censored version I got charged way too much on my credit card. How can I tell if I have the censored or uncensored version? The game starts out with the words Atari, and than Bioware and than produced by CDproject if I remember right on that name.

Sherryah, if you got the paper manual, you have the uncensored version just like I do. There are opportunities for liaisons, but you won't see anything.

There is some coarse language--I've heard the F bomb a few times.

I don't have Vista--I still use XP Pro. I want to let them work all the bugs out of Vista before I switch.

However, if I leave my email open while playing, when I exit the game I get a "game.exe has an error and needs to close" message. I just save often and don't worry about it.

The blood sounds like what I have though I have graduated to some spurting blood during battles.

I don't have a clue though if you'd loose your saves. You could always copy your saved games to another location before you do the patch and then if you did loose them, you might be able to just put them back in the folder depending on what changes. That sounds like a good question for the developers luck

If you go to The Witcher forums, there are a lot of suggestions about fixes for crashes on Windows Vista, which seem to have helped quite a few people. I would mention them here but that discussion belongs in the technical-problems section of this board. wave

Marian, it's ok to post them here, or a link to them. If you don't mind, it would be a good thing to post in Glitches also, and when folks search in the future, they may search over there or over here. puppy

There is a wealth of technical information on the official Witcher forum here.

As I understand it, you don't have bare breasted women in the censored version. Later on in the game there's a fully nude female. A few other scenes were changed in the censored version. That and the language is enough to make the censors go wild in North America. While many of us agree that it is pretty tame stuff, there are those that find the content offensive - having the two versions of the game makes more people happy.

I need some of your expertise. when I walked in the salamandors hideout I was able to defeat them. When I opened the trap door in the hideout and confronted them I have died at least 4 times. I have nothing else I am able to do in quests because all are tied up in the beringer or salamander quest. I just went to Abigails to by the crinfield oil to put on my sword but she is not home. No one is in the entire town. My map doesn't even show the the old locations I have been to. The name of the town has even changed and everything is black on the map except for a pink location mark. What has happened? Where is everyone? how do I defeat the salamanders boss and his assasins under the trap door? What do I do next?

I want to make the poison oil to put on the blade but I am lacking some ingredient. I thought that would help me defeat the salamanders in the cave under the trap door. Advice is sorely needed. I killed all the salamanders tormenting Shani at the inn and she waits for me there. What next? Thanks in advance.

Sherryah, open your map and look at the top. Do you have "world" checked? I ask because I did lol

Is this before you actually get to Vizima? If so, don't forget to use Group when fighting a group. I also knock some of the down with the sign and burn others.

Also, I used the Blizzard potion. I also discovered that I can run around like crazy and avoid people while I heal. And I took the potion that helps you heal faster.

I don't know if any of that will work for you, but ..... puppy

Thanks L4l you solved my map problem! Now to live to fight another battle. Where is everyone at? Are the salamanders holding them hostage? Like I said all the battles with the salamanders were easy but the one under the trap door has been my demise. When I take Swallow is it suppose to remove hit points from me? I took it and my red bar goes down instead of up. how come? What about blizzard is that suppose to take away hit points from me? Thanks for your help.

Sherryah
EDIT......................
I understand now the potions can be toxic so that is why I get hurt right? Good news I defeated the hard battle in the hideout under the trap door. Now my real problem is that evil hell hound. I saved Abigail and we don't even get a chance to save before the hell hound comes from the flames. Blizzard will not let me use group very effictively.
