I was playing the Witcher 2 today, eagerly and interested in what the new patch has brought us, but I can not get into Flotsam anymore. Every time I enter the city, I get a cut scene of a guard saying: "Kill the bastard", followed by three arrows piercing through my body, resulting into a displeasing death.

I had the cut scene before (in Patch 2.0) but I could bribe the guards. As for now, I have no possibility to do anything, except watching myself die. I have accidentally killed a civilian near Flotsam, and I think that's why the guards are on my back again.

I wonder if someone knows how to bypass this cut-scene-o'-death and the guards, or how to modify or adjust something in the savefile or somewhere else, so that I am not a notorious butcher anymore, but a peaceful Witcher once again.

I'd try an earlier savegame if it is possible, I remember that cutscene when I'd refused to bribe the guards. – Mad Scientist Oct 12 '11 at 18:56

As far as I can tell, consensus seems to be that this is a bug, even those that have not killed civilians cannot get into Flotsam.

Are you being asked for the 200 orens? If you are I'd recommend hacking in 200 orens and paying them for now.

Already had to pay 200 orens. This is the second time, and they do not allow me to pay a fine this time, unfortunately. I will wait for a patch then, because I find the option of an earlier save not comfortable – Wimpey Oct 13 '11 at 19:16
@Wimpey Judging from other people's experiences, I don't think that would help you anyway. – fredley Oct 13 '11 at 22:50
