The second instalment in the RPG saga about the Witcher, Geralt of Rivia, features a thoroughly engrossing, mature storyline defining new standards for thought-provoking, non-linear game narration. In addition to an epic story, the game features an original, brutal combat system that uniquely combines tactical elements with dynamic action.

This is a combination of several different setting files and programs I found I could use with one another (after some adjustments) for The Witcher 2 Assasin of Kings Enhanced Edition. It adds detail, shading and lighting, while enhancing colors but not altering the base colors of the game.
This can be used in combination with any texture packs or add-ons.
To make adjustments to Sweetfx, go to \sweetfx folder and alter the SweetFX_settings.txt file.
Alter settings as you like.
Using the Printscreen, will generate ingame screenshots.
