Wesp5 @ VTMB Unofficial Patch

Did you take the shortcut through the atrium or did you continue an old save from before patching? Did you meet her twice?

I didn't try other values and I have the impression that +2 only works on your first gulp. Your solution surely works better which is why I will include it.

Checked it out and while the current solution does already give more blood, your suggestion gives even more so I will use that in the next beta :)!

Hm, are you sure? Because I changed that in 9.9 and supposed it worked. Need to check it again...

Yes, widescreen support is native now. But the ResPatcher does not work anymore?

The patch version info has been moved to the options gameplay menu.

Nicht das ich wüsste. Vermutlich hat zu der Zeit keiner an 4K Auflösungen gedacht!

The problem is the Wine environment that has problems running the Python code Bloodlines is using. Check the linux_loader.sh in the Extras/Player Mods folder...

I don't know how long 9.9 will be in open beta. Normally it takes only a few weeks until obvious issues are fixed! I guess there will be a 10.0 after that, but I hope it will only include minor fixes and nothing new...

Not getting fists at the start of the game is a known random bug that the patch is supposed to fix. Are you sure you started from the patch shortcut or appended the necessary launch option when starting from Steam? Also are you using Wine or something similar?

Not really, but you might wait for the next beta as I just found an annoying little bug that might confuse you at the beginning...

You may be right that Blood Purge was removed against Andrei and Blood Guardian, but this was done ages ago by someone else and not me. It might be that lore-wise having enemies puke blood makes no sense when they exist out of blood or can turn themselves into it!

As for clan balance, Tremere are pretty much overpowered already with their ways to get blood back, they are certainly not one of the weaker clans...

I doesn't work on very powerfull enemies who are immune and it doesn't work on enemies who have no animation like for Blood Purge...

The occult item is a reward to get the new haven, each other haven has one too! Also Vision of Death should damage some supernaturals in the latest patch, but not all of them...

This bug has nothing to do with the occult item, it comes from long playing sessions in one go. Just exit the game and restart and everything should be back to normal!

Are you playing from the shortcut created by the patch? Also the histories are only available if you choose the plus version on installation.

If you want the Sabbat ending you need to tell the cabbie you already joined the Sabbat. The condition for that is G.Player_Sabbat == 3 which you can check in the console...

Hm, did you continue an old save after updating the patch?

Uncheck developer extras and if that doesn't help get another antivirus program or allow the patch. This is certainly a false positive!

True, but Activision holds the right to the game itself and even White Wolf couldn't talk them into financing a remake.

No chance. Besides that I don't think this would make enough difference (who really needs multicore rendering for such an old game?), some of the maps are too huge for the HL2 Source engine and it would take much too long even if Activision would allow it. Which it doesn't!

Exactly. At Humanity 0 you couldn't control your character anymore which makes no sense in a computer game...

Yes, I lowered the damage of both rifles in the plus patch a bit and restored the original values to the basic versions.

These Humanity losses are only for common people on hubs because you could reach Humanity of zero that way. You still get them for unique NPCs on hubs and elsewhere.

Yes, they will do a bit of damage on bosses now as in the original game. Also armor will not soak Aggravated damage anymore.

No. The UP and the CQM can be run in parrallel from their own subfolders but not yet together. Sooner or later though the CQM will integrate the new UP version anyway...

The problem is we both think it should work like intended so how should I fix it when I don't really know where the problem is?

This is the way Troika intended it to be, maybe as a reward for people who want to know more about the lore...
