Gamepad controller with x360ce: http://code.google.com/p/x360ce/

The game launcher may not work at first. Executing witcher2.exe for the first time created the configuration files and the launcher started working.

What does not

The game runs real slow. I'm only getting 10-15 fps in-game. Even on the lowest settings and with glsl disabled.  Much slower than it should be compared to Windows.

Witcher 2 running slow

I installed xact and it made the game a little faster, but the big difference was made in the registry editor, I set "StrictDrawOrdering"="disabled"
