You didn`t say which OS you`re using so i`m assuming 7 or 8 . Follow the link and download and install the 1.5 patchYah i need help because i mean it says i need administrator permissions even though im the only admin on my pc.
The Steam version is already patched to the 1.5 version and that`s why the patch fails to install . There are a few things you can try . One of which is to download the witcher from GOG using your steam key here http://www.gog.com/witcher/backup . Another would be to test you memory using http://www.memtest.orgExcuse me for my bad english ^^
I'm having a problem with the game and I've done and everything I found on the internet and nothing works.
The game closes is always alone and suddenly, for no apparent reason. No error quotes. He simply closes. Maximum appears: "The witcher has stopped working" and closes ...
Already added the DEP, I have put in compatibility mode, already started as administrator and always the same thing happens.
My version is the Steam Enhanced Edition Director's Cut 22.214.171.1244.
I've tried installing Patch 1.5 but it's this error: "Can not identify the installed version Unable to patch." And does not install ...
Please help me, I really want to play and is practically impossible to him closing all the time.
Note: There is only one save game, as many say that this happens because of many saves and send off. My only has a save and the same thing happens.
My Windows is 8.1 PRO 64X
Core 2 Quad q6600
GTX 550ti 1G GDDR5
Already tested at all resolutions and the same problama happens.
I take it you have done a Game verification check ? Also try running both Steam and the game as administrator .Hi Guys,
I was recently gifted The Witcher Enhanced Edition on Steam. I downloaded it, played it, enjoyed it and saved it. The next day when I went back wanting to play some more, I couldn't get passed the game menu (with new game, saved game, etc options). I'd log into Steam, the game would start, the strigoi scene would play in its entirety (regardless of whether or not I wanted it to) and then when the game menu came up, it would just freeze (becoming completely unresponsive even to keyboard controls etc). I've tried the patches, etc (though I see as well that the Steam version is already patched...my patch seems to have gone through anyway). I'm on 8.1 (not typically supported I know) but so is the person who gifted it to me and it works fine for them. Is there some other issue I'm overlooking here or is this about the O.S? PC specs are far above min requirements, so that shouldn't be an issue. I'd like to keep playing, so any help would be much appreciated.
An easy way for running any game as admin is to navigate to the game in question and find the game exe (not the launcher exe) then right click and select properties and click the Compatibility tab and put a check in the Run this program as admin box then click apply and ok .Hi Tommy,
Running Steam as Admin indeed just fixed it. Not sure how to run the game as Admin though, not even sure where Steam puts my games. Wouldn't mind knowing for future reference. But yes, Steam as admin fixed the immediate issue. Thank you! =)
Hi GuyNwah, i tried that, made a copy of file 1 the_witcher_exe copied to desktop, properties,target field, placed it at the end of that, message said, filepath is not right !!, thank you.Usual cause for missing the minimum requirements is you have an Intel graphics card, or you have Optimus with an nVidia card that does not get detected.
For Optimus, make sure the game is assigned to the "high performance nVidia graphics card", or words like that,
For modern Intel graphics, make sure you are launching the game as
"\path/witcher.exe -dontForceMinReqs" with quote marks just as shown.
Bump: Perhaps because I bought the enhanced edition several years ago (huge backlog ) and just II from GOG, I see no forum available for I (or III for that matter); I am asking for clarification since things may have changed in the last year. For "The Witcher I Enhanced Edition", I can get the latest patched edition as a download (not so good as I have satellite I-net) by supplying my key? If not, I am wondering if it works with Win7/64 and Nvidia GT545? I get an installation error message (I think something about directx) but it proceeds. At launch, it says I must launch as administrator (which I did). Familiar problem?Usually just leave the game where it is installed (don't copy the executable, it knows where it is installed and will look for files in related directories). Just create a desktop shortcut to the executable where it is, and add the -dontForceMinReqs argument to the shortcut. The double quote marks are to make sure Windows doesn't break up a pathname that has spaces.
If it's not installing for you, you may have an old copy; get a new one from www.gog.com, and it will be completely up to date (and it's free, just furnish the key from your old copy).
