Hagatha - how do you save games to a different folder?

Last time I played was doing very well, had even downed the Golem, when Windows dumped me on the desktop. Could not understand why until I opened my e-mail programme to find two e-mails waiting to the opened - two I didn't want, either.

Almost dread playing again. Can't today as it's time to take orders from Mr. P.

Oh well - one day I just might complete this game - hope before Christmas.

Night, night.

Alice, I just moved a bunch of my Witcher saves.

I made a new folder and named it Witcher back up saves and put it on my desktop (so I could find it).

The I navigated to my witcher save folder.

Selected the saves to move. Highlighted them. Then dragged them to the new back up folder on my desktop leaving only a few most recent ones in the Save folder for the game.

I was getting really really slow loads to and it improved once I did that.

Thank you so much Hagatha! I feared I had to do a re install. Please tell me how did you make another folder?

Thanks L4L now I know what to do and glad I am not the only one this is happening too. Bizzare never had this happen in a game before. Big hugs from Ireland

I also had some game crashes, but most of those occurred in Chapter 4, in the Village area.

I did have a few crashes in the earlier Chapters, though, and some horrible slowdowns. As long as I made sure that my Saves folder wasn't too full I managed.

I also have trouble with my anti-virus programme, Norton, which starts itself up at the worst possible times. Whenever my game went into a slowdown, I had to exit, turn off Norton's scanning, and re-enter the game. A lot of the time the slowdowns were from that.

Hagatha, can you change the time that your Norton scan is starting.

Sherryah, I think the problem is that the saves are pretty big. I had almost 4 gigabytes of saves. wave

L4L Sorry just seen your question. I have Vista 32 and over 400 of Gig space left on hard drive. Don't understand even with the huge game saves this would effect my hard drive. I am going to delete most all of them and try it again. They don't make it easy to delete games its time consuming. Is there an easier way?

EDIT................
BTW is there a way we can find out who the cannibal is that lives in the hut in the swamp forest? I am in Chapter 2? Is there any reward for killing the cannibal?

Sherryah, have you encountered the fine old gentleman who needs an escort in the swamp? No reward from anyone for killing him... You can get some stuff if you do or if you leave him alive, you get a potion forumla.

To backup and delete saves in Vista you can go to Documents/The Witcher/saves. I generally rename "saves" to saves.old then create a new saves folder and cut and paste the highest numbered save into the new saves folder. You then have only the current save and your old ones backed up.

As far as killing the cannibal he drops some pretty neat stuff plus you get pretty good exp points. (Watch for spitting trees though.)

I still think it's better to let Gramps live. The alchemy recipe he has is one of the best in the game.

Thanks for all your tips. Where do I find the canibal? also how do I kill that plant in chapt.2 swamp? it always kills me! Do I use my metorite sword or silver sword? I don't know which book to buy to tell me.

Your right I had 150 saves I deleted! Now the save menu comes up quickly. Bad thing is my map turns black right before a crash so when I see the map turn black I save and exit the game. At witcher forum I read others have this problem and no one seems to know why.

Last question I just used 4 talents and had no option to raise my intelligence since it is already 2. When do I get to raise it again?

Thanks Hagatha I guess I will let gramps live he isn't the canibal is he?

hugs and gratitude to all from Ireland

Have you taken Gramps to the shrine? Have you gone back to Gramp's hut to talk to him yet?

The Silver Witcher's Sword is always used for monsters. The Steel Sword is only for humans. Try Igni on that archeospore - it's a very tough one to kill if that's the one, but is a trophy for Vincent.

Help (again - but it is a sort of scream this time).

May have mentioned before, I find it helpful to print out this thread. Been so mixed up with other things I hadn't done so.

Usually start from page one (in the 'white' version as offered at the top of the thread). It will now print the first 6 pages, which would be pages 1 to half of page 3 and stops. Cannot start again and ask for pages 7 to 10. Am completely flumoxed (spelling?). rolleyes

My precious freetime is nearly over duh

Sherryah, how did you find out about the cannibal?

Click to reveal..
Yep, Gramps is indeed the cannibal and is quite blatant about it.


Edit: I've found the best way to kill that plant is to torch it and then whack at it on Fast with the silver sword. Take some Tawny Owl and some Swallow. If your vitality goes down too far, run away and then come back and go at them again.

L4L I accidently found the caninbal hut and figured out it was the old man because of what he says about meat and being hungry.
I let him live and got the new recipe. I hate the idea of letting him live to eat other people but since that is recommended I have done it. No I haven't taken him to the shrine and it is not being given to me as an option.

How do I open up that option to be taken to a shrine? what shrine? All the options are greyed out and it was about him living and why he is a canibal.

The other question is I don't have igni and haven't been able to progress any higher in my spell even though I am level 13. How do I get the igni that is mentioned here as a great weapon against that spore plant?

Thanks again for all your help it makes the game more fun.

Once you talk to Gramps in the hut, you no longer have the option of doing the quest. He was standing near the docks where the path forks with his dog when you first came off the boat. At that point if you click on him, he'll ask for you to take him to the shrine. There's a shrine to the northwest from the docks. Forgotten the name, melitele? Something like that.

I've forgotten where you get the igni spell though, sorry. I think maybe in the swamp cave? Or was it the sewers? Somebody for sure will come by that remembers, I bet.

Threads, I don't know anything about the printing process, but I think your question could easily be answered in the glitches forum, ok? Hope you're feeling a little better!

Sherryah, I can't remember where the Igni spell is, but make sure you explore every place you can get to. I'm pretty sure you get it in the Sewers somewhere, as I have always had it the first time I go to the Swamp. It's probably down in the Sewers. Igni will make life in the Swamps possible, otherwise it's a tough go. I would recomend staying in the City for a while, to do as many of the easier quests first.

In order to get the higher skill trees Geralt has to have Silver tokens, not Bronze. Third and fourth level skills require Silver, and Fifth level skills require Gold. You won't get any Gold until you're at level 30, but Silver starts at 20.

If you missed the location that L4L told you about, don't worry. I just replayed that part - it is also available in a different location- the sewers in Chapter 2 (and Chapter 3).

Sherryah- thumbsup

Anyone who has books, steal them and read them, any quests in front of the taverns, get those and right click to read. There is a guy who sells books in town, buy them if you can't find them, right click to read and them sell them back to him. Vivaldi has two books you need, but you need the quest from the Old Hag in the swamp or she will tell you about such books. I think the book seller too. Ask everyone that may have such thing. Read all books and then sell back.

Good Luck

Hi smile

Well, I couldn't stand it any longer .... I installed my "enhanced" Witcher and now have the bug all over again .... as though I ever lost it !! rotfl

[I still "need to defrag" regularly as was the case with the original Witcher version - and I still have no idea why - but there ya go - Can't have everything !! wink ]

Had to uninstall Morrowind, too, to fit Witcher on my machine, but I don't mind. I love Morrowind so much, that going over old ground when I reinstall it will be a pleasant experience and certainly not a chore grin

So, watch out swampsters. Another Witcher is on your trail !! lol

Cheers.

Mad yes
