Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So, I'm finally getting around to playing The Witcher 2. (Yeah, yeah, I know, late to the party...). I've played the original Witcher, multiple times, and loved it. I had save files, that I was eagerly waiting to import. And then... I got a new computer.

I thought I had moved my save files over, but it turns out, I had tossed an empty folder named The Witcher with an empty subfolder named Saves onto my external HDD. Stupid mistake. Very stupid mistake.

Point is, I'd like to find a Witcher 1 save file suitable for importing. An ideal solution would be if there's some way to generate one with some key decisions made (I recall CDPR saying something about a web-based 'save generator at one point early in development, but I don't know if anything came of it?), or a database of them online (think, something like Mass Effect Saves).

Barring that, if you have some save files with varying endgame choices (killed/spared monsters, Triss/Shani etc.) and paths (Order/Neutral/Scoia'tel), feel free to hit me up in Chat - I'll happily host the file and let you link it for an accepted answer if there's no better solution. If we get a bunch of people sending saves to me, a nice orderly CW answer could be a great resource.

Wouldn't it be easier to just play through the Witcher 1 again? Should only take you an hour or two. –  Wipqozn Jun 29 '11 at 10:27

An hour or two? Really? Have you played the first Witcher game? Do you remember, the goddamned Swamp? –  LessPop_MoreFizz Jun 29 '11 at 10:35

Try this editor for Witcher 1 savegame files. It has an option for quests but im not completely sure what it allows you to do.

Here's a picture of it

I would downvote for not being a hardcore gamer but instead I figured it be of more help if I'd answer your question ;).

I've taken a quick glance, but as far as I can tell there's no equivalent site like Mass Effect Saves for Witcher 1 saves.

People tend to:

  • Post on forums to ask for other users' savegames
  • Use a generator to recreate a savegame

Arremer already provided you with an editor, and here's another one for you to try out. You should be able to make all decisions with this tool.

Savegame editor over at WitcherVault

Hope it helps!

May I ask why this was downvoted? –  Anzeo Jun 30 '11 at 12:54

I found these couple of saves that someone has shared:

Save 1

Save 2

EDIT: I also found this forum post that appears to contain some type of generator. There is a link in the first post.
