Gothic 3 Patch 1.75 release
After a series of non-official patches for Gothic 3, we finally present another official patch version: CP 1.75. It can be installed over every Gothic 3 version, is available for each language and contains all previous patches.
You have to start a new game after the installation. Old savegames are not compatible.
There were several changes since the last official patch (CP 1.60): Besides countless major and minor bug fixes, graphics and performance improvements, the features “Alternative Balancing” and "new A.I." were introduced with CP 1.70.
Compared to the previous patch (1.74), CP 1.75 offers widescreen support for the menus, new graphics options (like color grading and FXAA), and decreasing of stuttering by using a shader cache.
In addition, the patch includes a ModKit, the Gothic 3 Genome Lite Edition. With that ModKot it's possible to change or create new game content in limited ways. There were also more possibilities for modders included in the game. The new features and the ModKit are explained in the respective modder manual and editor guide.
Changes in that patch are listed in the changelog and further explained in the readme file.
Advices for installation:
Older Gothic 3 patches will be uninstalled automatically while installation. During that process, the backup of the file „ge3.ini“ will be deleted which was saved by previous community patches. Deletion is necessary because the patch makes important changes in the ini-files.
During the installation, modifications in the installation folder could lead to problems. Therefore please uninstall all modfications before installing CP 1.75.
Savegames of the 1.75.12 Version (Gothic Complete Edition and Gothic 3: Gold Enhanced Edition) can be used. Savegames from older versions (1.74 and older) are not compatible.
ini files of versions 1.74 or older are incompatible, too. Do not replace the ini files with older version because it could cause errors.
Modifications which were released before CP 1.75 are incompatible (except they contain only texture changes). Look into the description of a modification whether it was adjusted to CP 1.75 before you install it.
The installer for the modkit is in the folder „ModKit“ in the Gothic 3 installation folder. A guide will also be installed for the ModKit.
Advice for installation: It has to be installed in another folder than the Gothic 3 installation folder. Installing it in the G3 installation folder causes errors.

Bless your soul!

Wait... incompatible? What a shame. I've got too many savegames to switch to 1.75 with this in mind.
Excellent news! I'm ready for a fresh start. This is going to be great. Thank you, thank you.
edit: Started a new game and I'm very impressed. Everything on high and still good performance. It looks beautiful, better than I remembered; the colors seem richer and the textures sharper.

One question: is it still compatible with QP 4.2 and CM 2.3? Or we should wait those mods get updated for the CP 1.75?
You can find answer on your question there:

@ CPT guys:
Hmm, it's strange - after the CP v1.75 installer detected correctly the Russian version of Gothic 3, English versions of the following files for a some reason were put into the installation folder:
But the Russian versions of Enhanced Edition (CP_1_7x_Manual_ru.pdf) and for modmakers (CP_1_7x_Manual_Addendum_for_Modders_ru.pdf) manuals were copied as it should be.
P.S.: Attempt to view patch contents with Inno Setup Unpacker v0.36 failed, since the unpacker gave out the following error:
The setup files are corrupted or made by incompatible version. Maybe it's not an Inno Setup installation at all.

Bravo and thank you!
You guys once again demonstrate us your utmost talent and commitment of restoring gothic 3 to a game it was meant to be.
Without your persistant efforts this game would have surely been lost. I vaguely remember how this beautifull project began and look where you're now! The journey must have been long but you never gave up.
I'm sure the whole gothic community wishes to commend your work and dedication.
We located 2-3 bugs which nobody has found before release but now. So the patch is cancelled, probably until today's evening.
We are sorry about that.
Take your time, make it even better, we love you <3 .
If you even try to look the other way...
I installed the patch but in the menu, fonts are invisible so I can't see a "New game" or other option. Is this one of the issues or is it just me?
Otherwise, thank you for your awesome work
I've had a really bad day and I have to relieve my tension. Hold still...
I've played about an hour with the patch and haven't noticed any problems at all.
Zitat von DonPhoenix
thx for all the work you've done
i'm reinstalling it now, and since this is an official version steam should download it already patched right?
Me to haven't noticed any problems. If I continue play saves will steal work properly after update ? or need restart? (sorry for suck English)
PS great job people!!!
Many thanks @ CPT guys. Thanks to your work G3 has become great.
Will the G3 Starter still work on CP1.75? Can it install the mods correctly?
Do not only believe in what you see, be able to see what you believe (Androga)
There's magic wherever you look, if only you allow yourself to see it (Nimloth)
I assume that the G3 starter has to be adjusted for the patch 1.75.
Zitat von Androga
Noticed for some reason replaced the standard paladin armor. This is a bug or it should be?
