Mohandevir 18 Feb

Just in the middle of another run... I'm at the "Ugly baby" quest and just realized there was missing textures in many caracters. In this quest, I'm able to see throught Eskel's armor's sleeves... I tried Proton 5.0.2, 4.11.12 and 4.2.9. Same results. 5.0.2 seem to have a regression that crashes the game on some occasion (loading loop). Proton or Nvidia 440.59 driver problem?

There are some game bugs that happen on Windows too. You can ask Windows gamers if they have the same issue.

Haven't travelled with boats a whole lot, but I jumped into one to sail to Undvik for a de facto main quest (but listed as secondary), and what do I see?



The screenshot isn't very good, but at least I caught it this time. No idea how common this is, but I haven't seen it before in my 3-ish times through the game. It first appeared off the coast of Rannvig in Skellige. Then a bit further west, near a smuggler's cache. I even saw it underneath water, but I was busy fighting sirens, and didn't see it again so wasn't able to catch than on "tape". Pretty cool, though. Love it when games put in rare stuff like this. Or... I assume it's rare since I haven't seen it yet in probably 300+ hours of play-time.

Interesting. Although I don't know if this is a variant of the same, there are sometimes imperfect overlay of textures/clothes/body parts. There is a mod that fixes many of them, called Besserwisser or something like that. Don't use it myself, but I hear many do. One pretty obvious case is one of the girls we have to meet as part of the "Broken Flowers" quest in Novigrad. She has a dress that is a bit messed up, and part of her shoulder can be missing.

If it's more serious than small mishaps like that, then it may be a driver issue, but it's hard to tell without looking at screenshots or videos.

I've seen some whales too. And I've heard there is supposed to be The Flying Dutchman somewhere.

I can't count the times I jumped off the boat trying to swim towards one, and it always got away and then I have to swim back to the boat:><:

Did you try diving after the whale?

So, apparently a company called Saber Interactive ported TW3 to Swich (which means native Vulkan renderer).

I've actually never been to Kaer Almhult before, and wondered about what I saw in one of the cells. Small guy, with possibly different-coloured eyes (hard to see ofc). Sure enough, the wiki has it :)
