Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installer
  • Sound
  • Cut-scenes/videos
  • All text is readable & looks good
  • Menus
  • Game

What does not

  • Launcher.exe (not necessary to start the game)
  • Register.exe (although, I have no idea why/what I would be registering for)
  • Cut-scences sometimes go black with just the outline of objects showing.  I only noticed this after changing video settings to ultra.
  • Changing focus on window (emulated desktop) causes a loss of keyboard input but retains mouse input. Game has to be killed to get mouse/keyboard working on the same window again.

Workarounds

What was not tested

  • Extended gameplay
  • Game in a non-emulated desktop

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Install ------ 1) Install game 2) winetricks d3dcompiler_43 (resolved issue with just a black screen on startup) 3) winetricks xact_jun2010 (fixes issue with no keyboard input in game) 4) run bin/Configurator.exe to adjust settings 5) run bin/witcher2.exe to start game Game is running on Ultra settings with good performance (nvidia GPU).

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"
