The Witcher 3 No XP Glitch Fix Coming On June 1 - briefly
(hx) 05:30 PM EDT - May,29 2015 - Post a comment
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on PC will receive a new patch on Monday (June 1) which will carry fix for the nasty "no XP Glitch" in the game. In addition to this, CD Projekt Red clarified that this No XP Glitch in The Witcher 3 won't have any impact whatsoever on the game balance. Marcin Momot, CD Projekt Red Community Manager stated:
We would like to let everyone know that we are aware of the XP glitch players are reporting and we are working to have it fixed as soon as possible across all platforms (Monday for PC & patch 1.04 on consoles in the following days).

At the same time we want to shed some light on the issue. First of all, it doesn't impact the game balance in any significant way. Also, you will be able to finish the game with your character achieving a level within the threshold we had in mind when we designed the game.

We hope this clears things up a bit. Again, rest assured, we won’t stop working on improving the game and there are more patches coming in the near future.

Upcoming Kepler Fix Will Increase Performance - tech
(coolio) 03:29 PM EDT - May,29 2015 - Post a comment
A few days ago Nvidia reported on working on driver updates to address Kepler issues with The Witcher 3. It appears though, that Kepler owners will enjoy a performance boost in several games with the new driver. Nvidia's ManuelG noted that the upcoming drivers will offer a universal fix for Kepler GPUs that will boost performance in various PC games. That's good news indeed, especially considering recent allegations that Nvidia is crippling older GPUs performance in the latest games in order to promote its new Maxwell series, something that is quite evident in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, as the game runs considerably worse on Kepler GPUs compared to Maxwell 900 series.
AMD Catalyst 15.5 Beta Driver for The Witcher 3 - tech
(hx) 03:16 PM EDT - May,29 2015 - Post a comment
AMD has finally released a new driver that focuses mainly on Project CARS and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. According to its changelog, this driver adds a Crossfire profile for The Witcher 3 and offers up to 10% performance increase on single GPU Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products, as well as up to 17% performance increase on Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products.
Crossfire Profiles updates for:
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Performance Improvements for the following:
- The Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt: Up to 10% performance increase on single GPU Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products
- Project Cars - Up to 17% performance increase on Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics products

Known Issues:
- The Witcher 3 - Wild Hunt: Crossfire users may experience poor performance or random flickering. As a workaround we suggest disabling Anti-Aliasing from the game’s video - post processing settings. If the issues persist further, we suggest disabling Crossfire while we continue to work with CD Projekt Red to resolve this issue.
- Project CARS: Corruption may be observed if Anti-Aliasing is set to DS2M. As a workaround we suggest using a different Anti-Aliasing setting.

Optimizing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Performance on AMD Radeon Graphics

Further to installing Catalyst 15.5 Beta, there are additional manual steps AMD Radeon customers can take to improve the performance of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Please refer to the following KB support page in order to ensure you get the best possible experience in The Witcher 3.

In order to install the mod, drop the content of the zip file without any changes in 'The Witcher 3 Wild Huntbinx64'.

You can find a list of the commands you can use here.

In order to enable the game's God mode, you'll simply have to type 'god' in the debug console. In order to level up your character, you'll have to either type "levelup" or "setlevel(X)" (where X is the level you want to advance to).

Try keeping track of Tracer in this complete, unedited match from an early version of Overwatch, captured in 60fps on PC. Here, Tracer plays on the defensive team in Hanamura, a Point Capture map set in an idyllic corner of Japan.

Hopefully, seeing Blizzard go after everything Valve does (HotS VS. DOTA2, this Vs. TF2) might light a fire up their ass, and they'll get working on more games.
