Sorry to necro this thread but I needed to.
So, I got the Australian version of Witcher 2 EE, before I knew it was censored. When I discovered the scenes in question were unavailable, I found this thread, and downloaded both the elf_flotsam.dzip and the succubus.zip files from here (from the last links posted, that still work), copying them to the CookedPC folder.
I haven't reached the point where you get to the succubus yet, but the elf file is most definitely NOT working.
I've tried this several times. I've got back to a previous save, and re-rescued the elven hostages at the end of act 1. Reached her in act 2 and nothing. I've even gone back to the point in act 1 where you need to make a decision to side with Ioverth or Roche, thinking maybe that was the trigger for it. Nope, Nada. I reached her in act 2 and again the option was not given to me, Geralt just automatically declines the offer, despite the fact the files are there and I've re-rescued her.
So I'm either missing something, or these files don't actually work with the Enhanced Edition as previously claimed, or the game only reads these files when you start a fresh new game. I'm not about to go back and restart the game from scratch and replay the entire prologue and act 1 again, because that's many hours of gameplay I'll lose just to get this one scene...however I'm still annoyed that this was censored in the first place.
The ones I downloaded are both only about 89KB each, seems unusually small.
Does anyone know why this didn't work, and if you have any alternative solutions?
Can someone who has the latest version of the Enhanced Edition please upload these two files somewhere?
EDIT: Okay I actually found somewhere that did have the correct versions of these files. Yes, the ones provided in this thread do not seem to work in the enhanced edition at least.
For those interested, you'll find the links at the bottom of this archived thread: forums.cdprojektred.com/archive/index.php/t-7661.html
You will need to re-rescue the elf at the end of act 1 to trigger that one, but it should work. The correct file sizes should be 427KB for the elf one and 163KB for the succubus one.
