here's another mystery error message..

what's all this about DLC..?
how do I know what I qualify for?

- do I need to register first, or what..??
Which version of the game do you have?

With the new patch, you may or may not need the DLC.

If STEAM, it will will patch its self, DLC included.

For the rest, I think you need to download and patch the game.
And Yes, You need to register.
You may need to run the launcher as admin as well. I remember that being a fix for some, Pre-Patch.
- is that UP/DOWN key assignment thing a general bug, or is just me..??

oh yes, it's the Premium Edition - bought over the counter at Games shop in town..
black box containing coupla DVD's, maps, coin, paper models - all that stuff..

- I've just uninstalled it all - gonna try again from scratch..

so, I guess it's
- install it
- register it,
- patch it (BTW:- which one is the UK version of the patch..??)

- then figure out how to change keys and get DLC..

Check out the official site. Im honestly not sure about the retail, as I have the STEAM version.

The patch was supposed to give up to 30% gains in performance though for Retail editions.
Im unsure if the patch contains the DLC for you as well, or a fix for the launcher to download it.

I've installed all the DLC I wanted. They are freely downloadable online, you need Patch 1.1 and then right click on the .exe and select Run As Administrator.

yeah, I wonder if that is slight on what BO gave the Queen of England.
Basically, useless garbage to them. If you look at it from BO's point of view.

I don't know, just find it a bit funny.. although yes, Poland is very proud of CDP i think.

OK, I'm not giving anything away here..

during the prologue "The King's Will - Part 1", you are asked to assist the King
with firing his prize trebuchet at the enemy - after handing you his spyglass,
the King requests that you aim it for him and a grid appears in the scope, which floats
about in front of this geezer standing on the battlements, in the distance..

there must be a way to get a direct hit, else why the grid, etc..
- so, how do you work the dratted thing?

- doesn't matter where I aim the trebuchet - left, right, up or down of the target
- every time I hit enter, Geralt says "Three Degrees" and the King fires,
- then the bolt misses the enemy dude by a country mile..
- straight over his head.. woosh!!

- is this another RTFM-type thing, or what..?

BTW: the interface is a bit clunky, compared the the original Witcher

Im not sure, and I couldn't hit him either. I thought thats just the way it would always play out, being impossible to actually hit him but ...

Is that not an achievement for scoring a direct hit?

I doubt you can hit him. I aimed for his chest and the volt sailed over him. You could try to aim for the wall, but this is the type of game where you continue even if you fail a mission. I don't think you can reload your saves for most of the autosave's anyway.
