The Unofficial Patch is not really a mod, but while the default basic patch only fixes bugs, the optional plus patch restores a lot of hidden content, including new quests and new maps!

Get it from Patches-scrolls.de (Germany), Patches.planetvampire.com (Canada) or Patches2.planetvampire.com (France).

This time the setup has been changed, so now the patch will install itself into a subfolder of the main game directory called Unofficial_Patch and you need to start the game either via the desktop icon or start menu entry or manually using the classic Source mod -game parameter. That way several mods can easily be installed parallel on one vanilla game version! Thanks for this go to Behar, who not only created the Game Mod Loader but included all previous dll fixes into it as well!

The patch also includes two new maps, the Malkavian Maze and the Warrens Shortcut. Special thanks go to Psycho-A for the continuous improvement of the Bloodline SDK which made creating maps possible in the first place. Thanks also go to EntenSchreck who supplied me raw drafts of both maps which I finished in Hammer, to Psycho-A and atrblizzard for optimizing them in several ways and the two older new maps too, and last not least to No_Mercy, who showed no mercy at all discussing each minor detail in all of the new levels that could be improved ;)! And as always to my beta-testers...

These are normal error messages. You will get even more when opening a map but normally they don't cause problems...

Wesp5 - I've been thinking. The photo's on the newspapers in the hotel don't look right. They shouldn't be black and white, they ought to be the same old yellow colour as the newspaper. Maybe you can fix that in the next update? I actually tried to fix this myself but failed to turn the images yellow using Paint.NET - maybe this can be done with Photoshop?

I only have Paint.NET myself, so I wouldn't do better if you failed.

It seems it can be done Wesp5 but I'm struggling to convert to a format that the game will accept without messing it up. Here's what I did:

1. After extracting them open each of the photos used for the old newspapers in the hotel (the ones that need to be sepia and look old like the yellowy faded newspaper) and click Adjustments from tools and click on Sepia.
2. Click Hue/Saturation from tools and set Hue to 16, Saturation to 200 and Lightness to 25.
3. Extract and open newspaper_burned1 and copy a block of blank page (where the photo will appear in the game).
4. Back to the photo click Add New Layer and then paste the block of newspaper over it and stretch it to fit.
5. Go to Layer Properties and set Opacity to 200, merge the layer down.
6. Save.

Viola! old yellowish faded newspaper photographs.

Exactly what AmericanCrime said: "AN essential Bloodlines patch/mod. It fixes almost everything inherently wrong with the vanilla game and aims to enhance the experience as well by restoring content. Highly Recommended!!!!!" This is the TRUE patch for any loyal fan of the game. There is absolutely no reason to not use this patch over any other patch, that claims to be, 'official'. All the mods for the game, use this patch as their foundation & regularly update to work alongside this masterpiece…
