This is a high-resolution texture pack for The Witcher, designed specifically to work hand-in-hand with Master of Darkness' Texturen mod. This mod "fills in the blanks" and adds higher resolutions to almost all NPC's, monsters, and animals in the game. The Texturen mod gave us high-res landscapes, buildings, trees, etc... but since characters and monsters were not included, this left us with better looking environments with the population looking a bit dull in contrast. Now with this hi-res character package, almost everything in The Witcher will look very high-def in comparison to the original game. The most notable changes to characters come by the way of outfits; now leathers look more realistic, metals more metallic, and creases and stitching are much more detailed.


- All NPC's, monsters, and animals have been given high resolution textures. It is important to note that while many characters will look exceptional now, not all will be equal. This is because not all were created equal in the original game, with some NPC's having higher vanilla textures than others (a good example is to take a look at Kalkstien's outfit in the original game in comparison to Shani). This difference has been inherited by this texture pack due to restrictions beyond my control, however the differences are slim, as all characters have been improved significantly.

- I highly recommend installing the Texturen mod along with this one. If you do not then the result will be bland looking landscapes in contrast to the character models. Basically, with both mods installed just about everything in the game will now be high-res.

It's small and useful since it IS notable in-game and after all an improvement.
I say bloody well done for deciding to do it ! :)

So, i've already installed the texturen mod. Now, the first file (and 300+ other files) I try to copy from this mod into the override folder starting with is trying to replace an existing 1 mb file with a 170kb file. Much smaller... is this correct? It just sounds wrong to me.

I wouldn't say this is "nothing special". So what if it was put through a filter? It added to the quality of my game, improved characters and monsters which weren't done in the big texture mod (also "nothing special"?), and it is free of charge. I didn't have to improve the textures myself - not that I would know how to - and now everyone in my game looks wonderfully better, fitting in with the surroundings that were improved in the big mod. I appreciate that someone took the time to do this.

It looks like he just passed the textures through a sharpening filter, nothing special.

So, wait. Are those just sharpened textures?
I assume the models remain untouched (for I do not seem
to see any difference, save for sharpness in clothing textures
and hair, for some of the characters). Then again,it's just the
images that I have seen.

Keeping the performance high while having better result is always welcome, though.

Yeah, he ran these through a sharpening filter, not exactly amazing, but meh, better than nothing.
