The Full Combat Rebalance mod is, so far, the biggest modification created for The Witcher. The combat mechanics have been remade almost from the scratch. The aim was to maximize the realism of the gameplay, this way making it more similar to the world created by Andrzej Sapkowski and maintaining the gameplay to the highest possible standard at the same time. The fights have became more brutal, they need more tactics and strategy, but on the other hand the combat system rules have become more logical. We warmly encourage you to test the modification on your own – and experience a completely new game!

FCR offers:

  • new design of the PC’s and NPC’s parameters,
  • full armor system and armor type/weapon/combat style dependencies,
  • damage fully dependent on weapons as in most cRPG games,
  • full skill tree overhaul, including sword style rules,
  • much faster and lore-close combat,
  • limited but more powerful monsters option,
  • dozens of non-combat related improvements,
  • fully customizable installation with the ability to install each feature seperately.

Tried to install FCR. Selected english. It installed english text and polish verbal. Windows 10 OS. Any suggestions? May cherry pick out stuff in z_FCR directory, copy to OVERRIDE and than uninstall. Results likely to be ugly. Checked Options/Game Options and english was selected for voice overs and subtitles.

Sorry, my bad. FCR isn't the problem. It's the game itself. 3 reinstall and repair attempts and it refuses to speak english. Aargh.

Does anyone know how to restore the original effect of the cat potion?

This mod makes it the same as de vries extract.

According to the books Geralt can already see in the dark without a potion so this mods adjusts gamma and contrast in low light so you can see in the dark.

I again and again run into a problem I can only assume is associated with this mod, I love the idea of a more intriguing combat because I VERY quickly realized the combat system of this game was lacking, but If I ever become cursed or poisoned in combat, with this combat update, its a guaranteed death because of the stun time while my character (Only a few hours into the game, I'm sorry I don't know his name yet.) goes through a little animation because of the recent poisoning. The many monsters surrounding me continue to attack me during these 5-10 seconds. The rest of the mod is great, and I have no complaints about any of it, but this is game-breaking to me and is enough to encourage me to uninstall it. Thanks for taking the time to hear my voice. I hope this gets addressed in one way or another.

I agree that FCR makes the game hard, but thats its purpose. The only way you can easily win in the game is to know all formulas beforehand (which i had written on a paper long time a go), then just make samun (stunt bomb) on act 2, or spectral oil on act 1, and youll be killing the dogs with a single blow . . . ok, maybe not a single blow but 3 usually does it. it was fun playing the game like that. it offeres alot if you know your way around it. if you know where and when to get what weapon. and…
