This article describes the directory structure of The Witcher computer game.

ConventionsEdit

When a path starts with a backslash character ('\'), it means that the installation directory has been omitted from the path. For example, assuming that you have installed the game to the C:\Program Files\The Witcher directory, \DATA would mean C:\Program Files\The Witcher\DATA

LayoutEdit

Once you have completed installation, you will have the following directory structure:

\Edit

The root, containing a few files.

\DATAEdit

The \DATA directory contains all game data that will be loaded by the game at some point.

\LAUNCHEREdit

The \LAUNCHER directory contains a collection of PNG images that are used for localization of the launcher.

The launcher itself is \LAUNCHER.EXE.

\REGISTEREdit

The \REGISTER directory contains a collection of PNG images and DLLs for localization of the registration tool.

The registration tool itself is \REGISTER.EXE.

\SYSTEMEdit

The \SYSTEM directory contains several things:

  • the font cache
  • MSS (Miles Sound System) DLLs and files
  • scripts (.LUC and .BFX)
  • game EXE and DLLs
  • copy-protection EXE and DLLs

Points of interestEdit
