Default The Witcher 2 - Released on GOG

May 18th, 2011, 04:14
Well, I read somewhere else(Qt3 forum) that running the game in a window would get the game started and this time entering the code worked- and just like that I am in!
Got patched, new DLC and free item. PLayed 2 hr and loved it. Game runs great even with my wimpy card

How are the fonts? I'm playing on a 37" LCD TV and in TW1, the fonts were sometimes too small to read from a few metres away. I hope this isn't the case with TW2.

The fonts are very small (in those tutorial pop-ups for example), nothing you could read on a TV a few meters away i believe.

Anyone found a place to download the day-1 patch (since the official server is down, cant even register..)?

Bad news for me. Looks like a no-sale. I hate having to get up every time to read text, especially in an RPG where there is a lot of it. Not everybody plays their PC games sat at a stupid desk!

The regular fonts I can read on 1080P but it's a bit a strain. On 720P it's fine. Those pop up tutorial fonts, which pretty much are done after the prologue, are problematic though.

This is on a 55" for what it's worth.

I'm hoping there ends up being a mod or option for larger fonts at some point either officially or unofficially.

What about playing it on 480p ? :-) Everything gets scaled up then, including the font size. Might induce some blockiness… Or wait with me for the console port next year

My TV is still 720p, so I guess that makes it as big as your 1080p but with less detail. Yours is bigger as well, so I guess reading that text is gonna be really difficult. I could manage in TW1, but only by getting closer to the TV and straining. That's not the way to play a long (presumably 40-50 hour) game. *sigh*

I wish developers were flexible about this sort of thing. I was also not able to play King's Bounty comfortably on this TV set, neither. Maybe it's a UI nightmare to have resizable fonts… but even with a high-resolution monitor, fonts can be difficult to read sometimes.
