Witcher 1 running very poorly

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

 

I've recently played Witcher 3 on my PC, medium/high details at 50-60fps. Averything okay. No I've purchased Witcher 1 Enchanced Edition from GOG, but on high settings games runs at 15-20 fps. GPU usage stays around 16-30% and CPU at 25-30%. GPU doesn't even kick into higher GPU clock speed, stays at around 700MHz (max is 1189MHz). Newest Nvidia drivers, other games work as usual. What's wrong and what can I do bout that?

Try disabling the environmental sounds in the game settings or setting the affinity of the process to 1 core. This game is known to run like a certain substance.

Witcher 1 is not very well optimized, especially on newer hardware. Try the suggestion above by tikker, but I am not sure what else you could do. There might be a bunch of mods or fixes posted online for performance or something, just search and see what you find.

Its a 2007 game, it's not optimized for current GPU. It maybe using just a little of the gpu power and capped the performance so it doesn't go bananas.

If it's not capped you maybe seing 500fps and AI running like they haven't poop in a week.

I've seen a bunch of mods, but non of them (as of now) seem to run on Enhanced Edition and it'a common issue in modding community in my research. You know any place I can find some mods to help me and not break the game :).

Seems odd, I played through that after beating TW3 as well and haven't had any issues. Have you looked/asked on GOG? They tend to do pretty good with making sure all their games run on current systems. Could even try their support page.

 

As to the game itself... I highly suggest you don't play it. It's awful.

Thanks, just reported this issue directly to GOG :).
