So, upload your saved game somewhere (zip it first, please!), then contact

This thread belongs in the Chapter 1 section of the TW2 subforum, so I'm moving it there.

I'm not sure that mods help with QuickTime events like the Kayran, but they might make the rest of the game more fun for you.
If the God Mode mod isn't up to date, it's pretty easy to make one yourself. Follow the Witcher Wiki's instructions on Extracting the Witcher 2 files to get access to the data, select the geralt_basic.xml file, then edit it with Notepad ++ or something similar.
Change the first line of that file that's under the heading "Vitality Group" to something like
and you should be good to go for awhile.

Here's how, if you haven't done it yet:

That way, whoever happens to be around can pick it up and play it through for you.

Still, I would like to finish the damn thing if I can - so enough bitching. There is a link below to a .zip file with a save before the Kayran fight. If someone could play me past it I would be most grateful. Just tell me where to fetch the file when it is done.

That link only has the .bmp file. I will also need the .sav file. You may have to put the 2 files into a zip file and upload that. Other option would be to load the .sav up and provide a separate link to that.

I didn't try it because I still don't have the game reinstalled, but it looks like a good save.

It is a sad situation when someone who has been playing computer games as long as I have is forced to play a game on Easy and still get help to kill a boss monster - all because of a very poorly designed and far too technical user interface. That should never happen in a game designed for a mass market. And it especially should never happen in an RPG. Technically challenging controls are way down on the list of things that most RPG players are looking for in a game. Maybe the designers will address that issue in any future editions.

@Dan'l - I suspect that CDPR have already realised that the QTE system does cause problems for some people so yes, hopefully they'll improve on it the next time. There's quite a few of us slower old-timers around playing the game, some who have problems with this fight, many who don't. Systems that are below minimum spec, or close to minimum spec but not optimised for the game, also seem to be responsible for a lot of the problems. So feel free to post your specs/settings and see if anyone can advise on any fine-tuning.
The good news for you though is that as long as you have Difficult QTE turned off, you're unlikely to have this kind of block again later in the game. Most people only seem to have it with the ballista in the prologue and with the kayran.
And don't forget to loot (assuming slim didn't do that for you), and to claim your reward from the merchant.

Sorry for the delay. Kayran is looted.
