GFP Combat

Hold 'Look Around' to temporarily disable rotation with camera


GFP No Spins

Pros: no glitchy item dissolve effect, no glitchy cloth shadow, working shadows of swords and scabbards
Lots of potential conflicts
HairWorks components on Geralt's head are disabled
Non-vanilla items/hair are not supported
Module made with a script, so no accidental human errors

Limitations
Spoiler:  
Show

  • FP head shadow does not work with Ray Tracing Shadows enabled
  • In rare cases it is very hard to interact with some objects in FP. When interacting with such objects try to look higher or temporarily switch to TP.

    Known objects:
    • power cells in Philippa's hideout
    • A Dangerous Game quest: Zed's door, triangular key in Caesar Bilzen's house
    • The Phantom of Eldberg quest: letter in lighthouse
    • warehouse door in Reason of State quest
    • completion token (underwater) in The Path of Warriors quest
    • Tomira in epilogue
    • Dettlaff's hideout door
    • barrel of Sangreal
    • Marlene's barrel
    • windows in Paperchase quest

  • FP Ciri is lower quality
  • Vanilla limitation: high FOV in rare cases will cause object streaming issues. Golden Sturgeon is the biggest issue.
