If I started to play it already with 1.4 patch will it continue to play where I last saved the game when I upgrade to 1.5 patch?

See here: http://www.thewitcher.com/forum/index.php?topic=24449.msg526139#msg526139This isn't an official pronouncement by a RED, but it's the best guess of our main technical volunteer.

read the FAQ: http://www.thewitcher.com/forum/index.php?topic=17503.0 ( and see the patch tips there ) and do detail what you've already tried and what happened

After applying the patch to a digital download version of the game purchased directly from Atari (i.e. not Steam or Direct2Drive), I appear to be missing one of the additional adventures that was supposed to be included with the patch. All but 'Blight of the Bogs' appears to have been installed, any ideas?BTW - Yes, I know I could just download the add-on separately, but since it was supposed to be included with the patch already, it seems that something might need to be fixed, either with the patch or something on my end.

Crash directly after launch intro movies. With strange graphic artifacts around cursor and left side of screen. Enhanced Edition fresh install and current built 1.5. Vista 64 SP2. Current NVIDIA Drivers 186.18. Crash occurs prior to main menu display. Also current Creative Driver for X-Fi Titanium Fatality edition sound card. No issues with other current titles. Resolution is 2560x1600 16:10. Attempted all listed Vista work arounds. Please address as this title has never ran without hitches for me and I own both original North American title as well as Enhanced Edition. Both retail. Never made it past the launching issues, and have remained loyal for newer patches. -Hooks

I have nearly the exact same problem as Righthooks. I'm using an Nvidia GForce 8800 GT at 1680x1050. Crashes either during intro movie or during introductory cut scene with moderate graphical artifacting across the screen. I've also never had a problem up to this point. Additionally, the intro has experienced some odd stuttering and sound desynchs that affect it's quality. I am using Vista 64x with all the latest SPs and updates with the Original Edition patched to EE and then 1.5.EDIT: I have attached the PC Wizard info as requested, hopefully we can figure this out..

I got the patch downloaded just fine. All of the new adventures installed and run perfectly. However, I still need the disc to play. On the task bar it says that it's still v1.4. Any help would be great.

Is the patch compatible with the hotfix? And is it worth the bother, if you have the *orginal* Witcher patched up to 1.4 + the hotifx?

Just patched a cleanly installed copy of the witcher with patch 1.4 first and then 1.5. All installations went well and the new adventures are seen when the game loads. However, while I get music and sound effects in the new adventures just fine, as well as subtitles, no sound of the speech. The origianl game still works fine as well as speech, as well as the previously downloaded adventure "side efects". Very strange as it is only the new adventures that came with patch 1.5 that do not have speech. Anyone else have this probelm?
