    Seeing as it is a just released game it is hard to give any advice here other than to be sure you meet the minimum requirements. Could be about anything with a new game. I would suggest going to the Witcher support forum as many more there will have experience with the game.

    Also hard to help with no system information. And welcome to the forum!

    EDIT: Wow, 32 pages already! Tech Support

    It would help if you gave us an idea of what hardware you have. What's the point in even attempting to help when we have no clue what components you have in your system?

    I'll fire it up tonight and find out. It's starting to become the norm for AAA PC releases, why should a game have to be patched after just two days? Developers these days really stick it to the PC gaming consumer.

    Interesting article here:

    I know there are tons of different hardware configurations out there these days but I thought that was what beta testing was for.
