Graphics complaints arise following new Witcher 3 patch for PC

New, 58 comments

The PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt received a new patch this week fixing a number of minor issues, but also introducing changes that some players aren't happy with.

Perhaps most notably, this isn't the promised patch that will eventually unlock more control to people who want to tweak graphic settings.

The biggest complaints for Patch 1.04 seem to be that the loot window has been made much larger and that some people are running into texture and pop-in issues. (You can see the latter in the video below.)

Here's a complete list of what the patch is meant to deliver:

  • Rebinding of all keys is now available after switching on the ‘Unlock Bindings' option in the Options\Key Bindings submenu.
  • Corrects an issue in the dialogue system that might have caused dialogue looping in certain scenes.
  • Fixes an issue with incorrect behavior of Wild Hunt warriors after they were affected by the Axii Sign.
  • Corrects a bug that caused spontaneous combustion of gas clouds.
  • 1280 x 720 resolution is now properly displayed as a valid resolution option.
  • Fixes boat stuttering in cutscenes.
  • Texture rendering quality for the high and ultra presets has been improved.
  • Further improvements made in NVIDIA Hairworks performance.
  • A few additional gwent cards are now available in the Prologue area.
  • Fixes an issue where users with usernames incorporating non-Latin characters were unable to import saves from The Witcher 2.
  • Includes a series of overall stability and performance improvements.
  • Fixes issues related to alt + tabbing and minimizing the game window.
  • Updates the game icon.
  • Enlarges the loot pop-up window in the UI.
  • Fixes an issue where, in certain circumstances, the comparison window could extend beyond the game borders in the UI.
  • Upgrading items included in gear sets no longer destroys rune sockets on said items.
  • Introduces small tweaks in the UI for gwent.
  • Corrects some missing translations in localized versions.
