This article describes the directory structure of The Witcher.
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
Once you have completed installation, you will have the following directory structure:
The root, containing a few files.
The \DATA directory contains all game data that will be loaded by the game at some point.
The \LAUNCHER directory contains a collection of PNG images that are used for localization of the launcher.
The launcher itself is \LAUNCHER.EXE.
The \REGISTER directory contains a collection of PNG images and DLLs for localization of the registration tool.
The registration tool itself is \REGISTER.EXE.
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
