Bug fixes and game tuning

The opening cinematic was choppy for me, just enough to trigger my motion sickness. Some googling suggested changing a movie framerate setting from 30 to 60 (didn't have any effect on the movie framerate, which seems locked at 30 for pre-rendered movies), but another suggested turning off movie ubersampling, which is apparently a thing where they render each frame multiple times and combine them to make it look extra good or something. Anyway, what you need to do is go into "The Witcher 3\bin\config\base" and open "visuals.ini". Change "MovieUbersampling" to "false". My head is still spinning so I'm not entirely sure, but this appears to have fixed the choppiness problem for me.

From what I understand the other cutscenes are also fps locked. You can change that in an ini file as well. I'll post it when I find it again. There's also reports of lower FPS for nvidia 700 series cards with the latest drivers, possibly as much as 20 fps difference.

I read elsewhere that some crashes and fps problems are caused by the Nvidia Streaming Service that's used by the Shield device. Disabling the service may grant some improvements.

I posted this in the other thread, but I'll post here as well because it worked for me. If you're having mouse issues, input lag, etc. Turn on hardware cursor in the video options. For whatever reason it worked for both me and Trekkan.

I'll be trying that later. As much as I want to use a controller I just can't stand the delay.

It's not a "fix all" but it helped with responsiveness for me. It won't make Geralt move like a normal person lol *slides to a stop*

That slide frustrates me to no end... not so much as a normal person, but because he is literally superhuman and very agile.

They added texture quality to the game with the most recent patch, it defaults to LOW, so if you want it better than that, make sure you edit the video options and update the setting.

I tried it and I'm not seeing any difference really. Maybe it depends on your configuration.
