Today CD Projekt Red released The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s patch 1.03 for PC, but console gamers won’t have to feel left out for long, as mentooned by Community Coordinator Marcin Momot, alongside further information on future updates and more.
Font size ASAP :(
"We are working on addressing the font size issue right now. Another patch coming soon."
I want like a dark yellow color fontS as optional instead of only white.
Which platform is this Font size affecting?
Both the PS4 & Xbox One, honestly I've had zero issues reading the text on the screen, I actually prefer it instead of having them blown up to accommodate everyone complaining about it. At least give us an option to increase or stick with the current font size.
Specifically people are having problems seeing item details... in shops and what not. It is, pretty damn small.
Sometimes I think it is a matter of TV size. In many current gen games I have issues reading fonts. This is probably more a problem on 30 to 40 inch TVs while the 50 to 60 TVs (and up if you're that intense) probably don't have the same issue.
I used to have trouble reading fonts, even scores watching sports. A quick visit to the optometrist sorted that out.
I can read the font size fine on my 23 inch monitor.
To those that it's affecting, try using the Hud size option, could that possibly be maybe the problem?
It's affect ting me, my eyesight isn't great mind you. I play on a 50 inch, to me it's just not as bold as I need it to be. If I sit 4 ft away it's not a problem but 6 ft laying down is. Not a deal breaker, but would be more enjoyable if I could play lazy :p
I agree. I gave up sitting 5 feet in front of my 50" tv to try and read the display. I could fight through it but with all the jitters geralt and his horse are experiencing I'm waiting for this patch to continue my journey as a witcher. Kinda feels like they weren't going to make payroll if they didnt release the game. They budgeted as much time as they could into optimizing it and now that they made some money they'll be able to finish it. It almost feels like a much larger scaled beta to me. But, it's a beautiful game worth my money I'm not entirely peeved I bought it early. They deserve the full 60 dollars for the work they put in so long as they are able to fix it.
Sounds about right. They do deserve it far more than most. This is one game that I will get soon unlike so many others where I wait months for price drops.
Are you really having that many problem? Besides font size being somewhat of an issue I haven't really had any issues playing. It's so weird how some games are effected worse then others. The only issues I've had were twice it froze on a loading screen. But it wasn't an issue cuz I save so often in open world RPG's. Other then those no actual technical issues besides a small amount of clipping or something minor.
Honestly, I didn't even realize the font was small until someone mentioned it. Its not that bad really.
Then what's your take on KZ:SF and Don't Starve's fonts? Those two games in particular bother me with their small fonts. I'm just wondering if it's a TV issue, an eye issue, or a distance issue. Kind of doubting its an eye issue.
@pivotplease It's probably a preference issue. Some people like it one way and some like it another.
Agree I have trouble reading all the text from my sofa
same here, i had to pull up a chair and sit closer than i like. Really im just glad it wasnt my vision going bad, thought i was getting too old for a bit
I will start playing in few days so I will get a bit better experience than those who bought it at launch I feel like now a days waiting few weeks to a month could be a world of difference. If a game has done issues at launch majority oh the tones those are fixed within first month Cd red project are a awesome developer and I can't wait to see what they do with cyberpunk 2077 I also hope either they do or maybe get another studio to do a complete witcher collection for next gen
HUD opacity need to be an option - the HUD is so ugly.
Let's hope soon means by tomorrow or something. Either way I'm enjoying the hell out of this game on the PS4, def. a GOTY contender!
Normally it doesn't depend on the developer, but on Microsoft/Sony, because they need to certify the patch.
This patch worked wonders for me :)
I'm not having as much fun with thias game as I expected :/
Then you expected something completely different from this game. So far this game has been one of the best RPGs I've ever played in my life. But to each their own.
Just as good if not better then Skyrim in its own ways . They each have great major ups . Loving it so far stuck on the botchling tho
I also certainly feel this is the best rpg I have ever played.i don't know how the consoles compare to the PC which I'm playing it on, but I think the game looks great, and it's crashed for me maybe 3 times in 20 hours of gameplay, which is not bad if I compare it to skyrim and all those endless loading screens I got.
Agreed, I actually think it is far beyond Skyrim. The characters are believable and for the first time I care about doing side quests because of the story and not because I need exp or a certain item/reward. It has a steep learning curve in terms of both comprehending the universe/story and gameplay but once you're past that the game is incredible. To me it might be up there with my favourites TLOU, RDR and Zelda.
Yay! Love the Game on X1 so far, but we need a steadier frame rate please :)
Framerate seems fine except for the cut scenes where its quite bad at times. Overall its not effecting gameplay at all though.
Then you shouldn't have chosen an xb1...
The card game is so fun xD
600 fixes on released game? Sounds like the need to finish it !
Using Witcher 2 as an example, the Witcher 3 will get multiple patches until it runs as it should. CD Projekt Red supports their games until they're fixed. Bit off topic here.. The combat is really laggy, the controls need to have a better response specially when fighting multiple enemies and the target lock is just broken when you're fighting more than 2 enemies at the same time. Besides that I'm really enjoying the game and the story so far.
I agree, the targeting system to lock on a target is frustrating as hell.
I barely use it. It restricts you too much when there are multiple enemies.
If they don't fix the studdering and frame rate issues I'm using my game as $60 coaster
I definitely wish the performance was better (playing the PS4 version) but I'm still having a good time. Hopefully future patches can improve the performance without significantly reducing visual quality.
The problem is that probably means more downgrades on consoles. The game came out downgraded, then the first patch downgraded it even more, expect even more effects/graphic fidelity will be cut to get better performance. Pretty soon it will be smooth but look like a cartoon.
What a load of rubbish. The game looks great anyway. It didn't get downgraded if the consoles weren't able to run it like that in the first place. Console players moaning about a downgrade is pathetic, especially when its the best looking game on the consoles atm. Now PC players with high end specs have the right to but people playing on lower end hardware shouldn't be shouting downgrade when you wouldn't be able to run it in the first place. The game runs smoothly 90% of the time they just need to alter some things and make it smooth if that means removing something barely noticeable then go for it. You want a good looking game near to the trailers get the pc version.
Am I the only one having trouble picking things up and getting on the horse? It takes me multiple button presses along with repositioning to get things. The movement also feels weird and almost too fast and hoverboard like. Hope they fix those issues. The game as a whole is pretty amazing though.
I usually just press X twice to get on the horse. Loving the game so far. Som fps dips in some battles, but nothing that ruins it. Best RPG I've played.
Getting on the horse is a pain. I wish it were like in Red Dead Redemption, where you could get on easily and from multiple angles, like jumping on from the rear. I find myself repeatedly mashing X to get on Roach. No problems with the movement, though, except any change in elevation whatsoever makes Geralt do a falling animation.
The witcher 2 was atrocious for font.
I had Skyrim for ps3 and the frame rate was quite bad throughout the game but I and many others still loved, the witcher 3 is ny first experience of the games and I think its good, im struggling a bit with the menus especially text and some enemies are difficult, like I helped this dude fight of waves of bad guys and I kept strolling along and found a tunnel or cave went inside had to swim to get to some areas and is big ass spider killed me in one attack lol, gonna start doing some main quest for a bit I think, but any hows just enjoy guys :)
playtime counter actually pauses during the pause screen thanks!
Please do something about the PS4 loading time, it's Bloodborne like, and I die a lot on the hard difficulty.
It loads pretty quick
It's fine. stop dying. Learn the mechanics. You cant wait 30 seconds then you have problems...
30 seconds is a console problem. The PC have a quickload option where it is virtually instant. God I miss quickload.
Can someone tell me where to get the tamerian armour and item dlc...I downloaded it..but i can't seem to find in on my inventory.
Trader you save from the Griffin at the start is by the entrance to the first village you go in, he's got some of it.
if your looking for the hair place just somewhere lie oxenfort i think thats the name but yeah
Thanks. I'll remember that.
Font is small on PS4, can imagine it would be hard for some people. Frame rate seems fine to me on PS4, barely any issues. The energy bars/monster names sometimes bob up and down a lot when they're moving, which is really distracting, would like to see that fixed. Playtime counter would be nice also so I can see how many days I've lost!
What about the patch to fix the bad optimisation for PC?
It runs fine on my mid spec PC and btw we've had more patches than the consoles so far as they have to wait for every single one to be certified by Sony/MS. PC version might be on 1.04 or 1.05 by time consoles get 1.03 :P
The game is great so far. I just started it and have only completed the first few quests. I comnpleted the "Missing Person" question, but but received no Crown for it. Besides experience, I'm not sure what else I was suppose to get. Only issue I've had was some frame stuttering and a crash to UI while playing the "Gwent" game. I'm playing the PS4 version as well.
I game like 3 feet away from my 27 inch monitor on PS4. Game text is tiny, not illegible, but tiny. Wouldn't be a bad idea to just add a scroll bar and increase the font a bit. I feel it's tiny so they can fit it everything in one page. And the items, so tiny... Is this a game for Ants???
the game is fine, even great. Please make a toggle to WALK. For goodness sake fix the camera to look "down" I heard dogs can't look up; witchers can't look down.
didn't play much of the unpatch version but was having frame rate drops and cutscene shutter.. Playin the current 1.03 patch on ps4 and facing almost same like often framerate drop durin combat.. can't say much concerning visuals looks great for me.. moreover the fonts size is hardly noticeable plus long loading wHen u restart last checkpoints.. Few cons aside but what a game it is till now just can't stop playing, u never know whats next just after the next quest the next.. Haven't finished it yet n don't want it to finished just wanna be lost in this beautiful world CD PROJEKT RED has created.
