I guess it just takes a while for the game to get all it's shaders compiled. I used to get heavy stutters in White Orchard which gradually disappeared over time.

Happens on even the beefiest rigs when galloping in cities afaik.


All in all, I'd say this is the most well optimized game I have ever played given it's massive scope.
You have a sprawling city like Novigrad and you're allowed to go inside residences which are quite detailed in themselves. All without a single loading screen.


The following tweaks are mandatory though:
- Set max pre-rendered frames to 1 in the Witcher 3 profile. Helps smooth out the random micro dips in cities.
- Disable in-game v-sync (it's garbage) and set fps limit to Unlimited.
- Use v-sync from the drivers (game must be in fullscreen mode, driver v-sync won't work with borderless window).
- Set draw distance to Medium instead of High.

Turning off the frame rate limiter helped me a lot. I also used to get the dips in White Orchard, but like you said, they went away after some time.


I've been to Oxenfurt now. No dips there. I think upgrading the RAM speed helped. The thing that occasionally kills me is lots of alpha.

Soul Calibur 6 too if you hadn't seen it. I think he may be trying to give GlaDos a run for her money in cameos.

Because the series would only be 4 episodes long.

Finally finished this. Started way back in Nov 2018, this is the longest a singleplayer game has ever taken me.
Did all the sidequests (except Gwent and treasure hunts, just not my thing).

Did it in full RP mode heh, no acting like a moron or stealing everything that isn't nailed down.
I know most people didn't like the over-reliance on witcher senses but I loved being a medieval Batman (that's what Geralt is in my mind).

Got the best endings imo:
Radovid dies and Ciri becomes emperor. Detlaff dies, Anna and Syanna live.
Basically I am now a citizen of the Continent, all the emperors are either indebted to me or in my pocket .



Wish I could've played this alongside the show (second playthroughs don't interest me).
I know it doesn't have anything to do with the games, but I would've enjoyed it even more given how great the show is looking and having a chance to emulate that in an equally great game .

Just hope all this cancerous sjw and anti-sjw nonsense doesn't harm the show too much.
Honestly everything these days has to be an agenda with both the aforementioned groups.

Entire Youtube channels have made their careers on sjw bashing/promoting instead of objective news, and everyone just needs to stfu.

I must say I did want witcher Ciri, but I let her see her father once and that's that I guess.
In my mind it felt right, usually I let Ciri make her own choices but figured Emhyr atleast deserved a private audience with her. Absent father and all but nobody's a 100% a dick, plus I trusted Ciri enough to be left alone with him.

But this is ok too. Better even if one doesn't think of Geralt as the centre of the universe (the game does drive this point forward at multiple junctures).
Now atleast all seats of power are occupied by good folk.
