Rare to get my power attacks to work, but recently I think I did get it off and it won me the match. Also the combos do work, but I found that trying to click to get them to continue usually stopped Geralt instead of continuing the attack.I don't understand what you mean by "cheating" , you mean blocking then attacking? you don't even need to block, just punch over and over.Punch, punch, punch win.sikker said:I think we all know the trick to fistfighting with: press right mouse button -> let opponent strike -> press left mouse button -> repeat.But I somehow do not think this is what was intended. There has to be another way.Has anyone any tips on how to play in a more fun way. - How do you use powerups?- How does one avoid being pummeled by amateurs like Fat Fred if you actually try to fight without "cheating"?- Make up your own tips and suggestions ;D
I think the powerups are supposed to work same as the sword ones. The little pins around the fist icon turn yellow when you need to click for the next chained attack. But the actual window to chain the next attack is much smaller than the time the pins are yellow for suggests and is limited to more or less immedeately after they turn yellow. When you do get it right, a broad white arrow pointing towards your opponent appears and your next chained attack commences, simultaneously interrupting their attack. Someone with more experience replaying the game might be able to shed more light on this.If you don't want to do the hit-guard-hit-guard-hit-guard sequence until the guy drops, you can just hit and dodge (hit backwards or left/right twice) or hit and walk around instead. Feels a bit more like an actual fight when you fight like that and is certainly more entertaining but not as fast. And you have to be careful not to accidentily walk out of the fight-area, or you will forfeit the fight.sikker said:I think we all know the trick to fistfighting with: press right mouse button -> let opponent strike -> press left mouse button -> repeat.But I somehow do not think this is what was intended.

That's the thing though - I didn't kill him! I may have fought that guy previously, but I think it must be a bug - I found him dead on the floor on entering the hairy bear one day! I just wish the other guy went back to his corner so I can fight some others!!I don't ramp up the fightfighting techniques to gain an advantage; rather just to make the fight a little more entertaining. Hit-duck-hit IS rather tedious...Besides, I never had those skills when I fought in the Hairy Bear. Dunno what that's all about...gamewidow said:I've occasionally had other fighters get in my way, but not very often, and i've never had one actually die ... so while i cannot confirm or deny it conclusively, this is the first time i've ever heard a report of a fistfighter dying.i guess your Geralt is much tougher (or a better fistfighter) than mine! -- but, i've never pumped any of the fistfighting skills before ... so maybe that is the difference?
Only when you let the scoia'tael take the goods from haren brogg in act I and have visit detective raymond in act II (after your escape from the sewers)As long as you don't have visit raymond coleman is still alive and will be in the hairy bear.gamewidow said:i think you might be confusing two npcs ... Coleman (informant and fisstech dealer) and Andrew Gablodda (fistfighter) share the exact same physical model. Coleman is the guy you find dead upon entering the Hairy Bear, but Gablodda is the fighter at the New Narakort Inn perhaps that's what happened ?
