22.12.2012 @ 02:41I am a thankin' ya, slimgrin, - it is indeed a good save and the bad guy is indeed dead as dead can be. It is my sincere hope that I can muddle through the rest of this technical mess of a game without assistance.
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.

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.
21.12.2012 @ 05:48LOOKING FOR A SOMEONE TO KILL THE KAYRAN: Okay, I give up. Tried it again but there is just no way I can work the camera with one control (since it does not track with the character - what a total and unexplainable pain that is), move the character around with another control, watch for the QTE prompts (invest money and talent into creating fabulous graphics and then force the user to miss them because they are focused on looking for little prompts to pop up on the screen - now there's a good idea for you), let go of the controller so I can flip the character's magic around with various keyboard commands, and then grab the controller again so I can do some of the other stuff again - all with arthritic hands. And just so I can finally watch my character kill the big bad guy - in a freakin movie! Gorgeous game. Great story line. Very refreshing and very adult. Love the humor. Loved Witcher 1 so bought the sequel. Did not realize they had tried to morph a very unique RPG into some kind of hybrid shooter/action thing that is all about hand skills (like Crysis 10 or Stupid Mario Brothers 112 - or whatever those type games are up to) instead of brain skills or surely would have skipped it.
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.
20.12.2012 @ 03:24I appreciate the replies and the suggestions. Pretty much a week end warrior insofar as games are concerned so will think it over and decide what direction to take. (Seems I should also be able to load the save to my site and link a download to it there also but I will take a look at the other options mentioned.)
