So far there is a work around for getting pass the bug, in the early stages of the Kings Gambit mission, when Lugos challenges you to a fist fight, you HAVE to win in order for the bug to not happen, you can reload and try again if you lose, sadly I fought Lugos long, long, ago, and for me to redo that would mean losing a lot of hours because I did a lot of main story quests in between, guess I'll have to wait another week and half or so for the next patch.
Source of the work around:
DONT WORRY ! Devs said that : "First of all, it doesn't impact the game balance in any significant way"Hey, I've tried to complete the King's Gambit quest.Any tips how to solve the infinite loading screen? I am playing on PC and the version is 1.03 steam. According to reddit this same bug is also occurring on PS4 and it stopping people from progressing in the game as it is needed at one point in the game.At the point where you kill the bears at the den or if you chose the other way, catch the traitor, you are then supposed to be teleported to the Jarl's place, but when the loading screen comes it gets stuck there. I haven't found any workaround to this.
Lots of people have also reported this problem in the steam community forums.
Here is the reddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/witcher/comments/36rtt1/stuck_on_loading_screen_at_the_end_of_kings/
That was them talking about the xp bug when he said that just FYI. This is about the loading screen issue.DONT WORRY ! Devs said that : "First of all, it doesn't impact the game balance in any significant way"
You can't play anymore ? No problem the bug doesnt impact the game !
lugos fight was like tens of gaming hours for me, i'm not sure that i even do have a save before the fight... and now i'm stuck... cool workaround, thxThey gave us a work around with Lugos Fight... chill out.
Every game encounter problems even AAA made but huge company that have way more means.
I'm so happy those guys managed to make such a great game and i think they deserve our support.
Do like me, make an other playthrough or be patient.
Sure witcher 3 is AAA but CDPR is not ** or *********/******* or even ******** i mean for financial part more than employees.Not saying that your chilling out idea isn't a good one in general. I too think we all should do that (and people do for the most part), it will all be over soon. - But CDPR is a big dev with about 230 employees, The Witcher 3 is certainly an AAA game and GOG Galaxy might rival Steam at same point, They don't need the little-guy-sympathy-card. ;-)
Like u at first i was angry and frustrate but after that i decided to make a new game to wait the fix and u know i don't regret.lugos fight was like tens of gaming hours for me, i'm not sure that i even do have a save before the fight... and now i'm stuck... cool workaround, thx
lols, not going to drop my 26 lvl character, i've even done 35 lvl witcher contractLike u at first i was angry and frustrate but after that i decided to make a new game to wait the fix and u know i don't regret.
At time i reach this quest the workaround was there. And now i finished and start in upper difficulty.
Patch 1.05 for PC / 1.04 on consoles. the PC patch should be here by Wednesday, the latest. We hope the consoles will follow shortly.
There's a workaround that should help. If you lost a fist fight with Lugos, please try reloading the save and win it. This should remove the error.
