The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition Modding Guide

MODDING GUIDE

 

 

Ummm...well, I made a Witcher 2 modding guide overnight. This is my first time ever being on the forum, making a guide, and writing/editing a wiki. Nevertheless, I really tried my absolute best at trying to make it as professional and familiar as the other guides on STEP and would love to hear what you think about it.

 

I made the guide to make The Witcher 2 look as good as The Witcher 3 while improving the balance of the game and fixing some minor bugs. The guide includes 15 mods among optional mods.

The guide is separated into seven sections:

  • INI Tweaking
  • Gameplay Mods
  • Graphic Mods
  • Fixes and Patches
  • Optional Mods
  • ENB Setup
  • Finalizing

 

So check it out and let me know if there is any interest in it and what you think.  :lol:

Maybe in the future if I end up buying some kind of Witcher Trilogy pack.

There is a Trilogy Pack on Steam right now, however I would probably wait until another sale because the Witcher 1 & 2 were under $4 last week during the Steam sale, so they usually go real cheap when there is one.

for Better Texture Environment delete the following

CookedPC\items\geralt\geralt_signs\yrdentrap

CookedPC\items\work\remains_human_01

EDIT: nvm you have them as separate mods

 

There is another texture that has a bugged alpha and it is used in chap 1 for the monster nests

 

I dont know if FCR includes something similar but I would include the arm wrestling cheat because that minigame is complete BS.

 

Does Extreme Quality Flora do anything for your game because it never worked in mine?

 

Personally I had a problem with the FOV so I used Enhanced Camera and used an fov of 75.

Does Extreme Quality Flora do anything for your game because it never worked in mine?

Yes I included the part about deleting those files in the High Resolution Weapons part because I believe it is those textures that add the two. But thank you for reminding me because I forgot to include the part about deleting the bugged dice board. Do you happen to remember the files you have to delete for the bugged Nekker Nest textures?

 

And I was unsure about including the Always Win Dice and Wrestling Mod because I wasn't sure what some people would think about the Market Price and Zero Weight mods as they might think that those are cheap or cheating, but I thought those two were at least necessary. But if you think it needs to be included I probably will put that one in as well.

 

As for the Extreme Flora mod, I think it does work but I haven't done direct comparisons so maybe doesn't? I'm not sure if you have FCR2 installed, but you need the compatibility patch for the Flora mod to work with it. And for FOV, did you have problems with it or just didn't like the default settings?

 

And I spent a long time modding TW1 a month ago, like 2 hours, played the game for an hour and uninstalled everything because I just didn't like the game haha. xD

 

Does your game crash when you Alt+Tab btw?

every game crashes when I alt tab now, either microsoft or nVidia screwed up something.

My thoughts are its likely nVidia

 

tw1 is really terrible but it had its charm.

 

Market Price and Zero Weight mod are completely unnecessary, I never ran into the issue where I wasnt stupid rich.

 

The dice game takes some skill and luck but the arm wrestling was idiotic.

I couldnt be bothered to search for them honestly.

While I guess that the Market Price and Zero Weight mods might not be necessary, i feel that the Market mod makes the game more fair (even though you are super rich most of the time), and the Zero Weight just makes managing the weight less annoying.

 

But I guess I will add the Minigame mod to the wiki now.

 

 

I couldnt be bothered to search for them honestly.

and understandable. i will keep looking around on forums.

I guess people usually make updates in their forums when they update their guide. So, the guide is finished after not working on it for a month :P

 

 

Final Version Includes:

  • Lots of fixes in syntax, spelling, directions, etc.
  • Added an Optional Mods section to the guide that includes among other mods:
    • My own mod for always winning dice and arm wrestling, for those who want it (compatible with the FCR2 mod)
    • Reasonable nudity mod
    • A very nice custom story quest mod

 

My guide has gotten over 500 views, which is really cool. I guess there are at least some people out there that have seen it or maybe even used it. Enjoy!

Small problem, I do not have a mods section to click on in the launcher so cannot check that the mods are included. Pretty sure I followed it to the letter except for some optional mods which I left out.

 

Any ideas?

Wow, now I know that someone actually used my guide and 1k views! Cool. And well are you checking in the Witcher 2 game launcher, or the Witcher 2 tweak launcher?

 

If you are certain you're in the actual game launcher and don't see a mods section, then that means you are not on the current 3.4 patch or that maybe you do not own the Enhanced Edition.

You can check your version by right clicking properties on the .exe in the bin folder and going to details.

 

If you aren't on the 3.4 patch then you must download the patch and uh, well I know that FCR2 will have to be reinstalled...as for everything else, I'm not sure if it will be affected by an update, so I'd at least double check if everything is where it needs to be or uninstall making sure nothing is still in the install and documents folders, and go through the guide again.

Thanks for the great guide. However, the Extreme Quality Flora Compatability Patch is not available anymore?!? The file seems to be removed and I can't find it on the Internet anymore. Do you think you can upload it somewhere again? If not: Which one is more important? The Extreme Quality Flora mod or the Full Combat Rebalance mod (since I would have to choose between both without the compatability patch).

 

Best regards,

Don
