    Contemplating a second play through, not sure I want to give up hundreds more hours on this again, once I start I know it'll eat my life.

    Not sure whether to ask here or in the console forums.

    Recently got my hands on Witcher 3 from GOG and hopefully have the Switch version coming in the post soon - I haven't started either.

    Very interested in cross save, which looks simple enough to do. However I want to add a few mods to the PC version, mainly HD reworks. Will that Bork the cross save?

    I tried this also - got about 20 hours in but could not face it again. I only replay the odd game.

    On my 4th playthrough :s 3rd on the PC, 2 playthroughs via GoG and current one on Steam. The 4th is a much slower pace on the Switch which is great for flights.

    I haven't heavily modded, only the auto-oil mod and a couple of others I can't remember- Cross save to Switch still works fine. Being able to play the game in a pocket device still blows me away.

    Honestly there's still a slight issue though- I really miss auto-oil when playing on the switch!

    We need someone to find a way to inject mods into the Switcher.....

    Managed to get the Galaxy connection to PSN working so I bagged the GOTY version for nowt. Thanks, CDPR, you're the best. I've never really used Galaxy at all so now might be the perfect time to try it out with Witcher 3 and see how I get on. Then decide whether to purchase Cyberpunk 2077 on there or not.

    Can I save some time by copying my Steam install files over to Galaxy?

    I've never played a game like this. Nothing in the series, no Elder Scrolls. But I'm about 3 hours in and really enjoying it.

    Any tips for a noobie? I've read to loot everything possible and tackle some side quests to level up.

    OK, I know I'm late to the party, but I've now started playing.

    Anyone else have issues with the auto-apply oils mod, and the field of view mod? For some strange reason, whenever I try and run them both, the in game graphics go wrong. However, I can run either one separately without issue...

    Anyone have issues with a CTD at cutscenes? Sometimes doesn't happen after you reload but I'm seemingly stuck now.

    Not here.

    Witcher 3 is one of the few games that has never crashed for me.

    According to my notes, it did crash twice both just as the game switches to cutscenes. I have no overclocking.

    Yeah, I'm not overclocked and have zero issues in other games (6700k, GTX 1070). I'll have a play with the settings and see if it behaves itself.
