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.

The manual says:"The flaming sword icon, indicating the next attack in the sequence, can now be turned on on the hardest difficulty level or turned off on every difficulty level." But only saw the option to turn on the sword icon on hard difficulty when installing, how do I turn it off on easy diffculty ?

Hi, Just wanted to ask, If i accidentally buy and drink a difficulty potion, does the difficulty stay if i load a save which is before I drank the potion?

Is this mod recommended for first time players?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Better not. I played on hard level, and was quickly killed several minutes during the tutorial. It's better start playing on normal or hard difficulty of vanilla game.

Vanilla combat on medium seems boring already in the tutorial: enemies are damage sponges and Geralt is almost "immortal".

Is there a normal setting for FCR? I just need faster encounters and a bit more challenge..

So there is no file for this mod here, and I have tried downloading it directly from Redkit 10 times using 2 different internet services and each time the file is corrupted . .

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.

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…
