its triggering an antivirus warning. Trojan: Win32/Rundas.B

why?

Probably because of a window-pop-up tool which has already been removed in the current version.

Sorry, that says nothing to me. Ask in the Planet Vampire forums about this!

Yes. The Bloodlines SDK is based on an early Source SDK...

Hi there, stupid question time:

I try to open the game through the SDK window, but I don't get the option to go any higher than 9.6 Unofficial Basic. Am I missing something?

Also, how do I get rid of the console text?

I think I answered this elsewhere too, the SDK does not include the UP itself, it will always work with the one you have installed. Also the console text can be disabled by setting "developer 0".

The download is just some development kit. No idea where the actual patch for the game is.

It's on the homepage "The Patches Scrolls", which is linked on the main page to the right.

Ok need some advice here. I installed the newest Unofficial patch and used the shortcut it made (I chose the Plus mode for installation). Now how do I actually know if I am playing plus mode? It looks like the regular game so far.

On previous unofficial patches I used in the past, I would see something on character creation like UP 8.4 Basic in the upper right corner of the character just to the left of SHEET. Not seeing that with the 9.9 one.

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

Hello Wesp5 - it's been a while. Could you please tell me why just about every .exe in the SDK is throwing malware errors? I've installed the original valve source SDK without issue. Why is this version of the SDK giving me problems?

The Bloodlines SDK has been reconstructed from an early alpha Source SDK that has been leaked as far as I know. I got some malware warnings myself early on, but don't get anything right now. Tell me which exes are affected and I will tell the author about it!

Hello, Wesp5 . You can give instructions on how to use the "Vampire sdk".

Just run the main "Bloodlines SDK.exe", it will lead you through all the install requirements.

You have to teach this yourself. But there is a big info file on this in the Patch_Extras folder of the patch itself. It is called "ModDev Guide.txt". Also you can come to Planet Vampire where there is an active modding community!

How to translate the dialogs and the main menu of the game?

The dialogues are simple text files with the dlg ending. I think the main menu is in gameui_english.txt...

What is your opinion about the game "Vampire: The masquerade bloodlines 2"?

I have high expectations, especially as Brian Mitsoda is behind this who also wrote a lot of the original Bloodlines!

Two disciplines after joining one of the clans is not correct should be the three disciplines? Why did the developers of vampire the masquerade bloodlines 2 do this? After all, "vampire the masquerade redemption" b "vampire the masquerade bloodlines" was each of the clans in the three disciplines?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I think they did this for two reasons:
1) The player keeps their Thinblood discipline so he stil has three altogether.
2) The clans are more unique now, as each clan has an exclusive discipline!

And tell me how to compile a map normally? First, I decompiled the map from Grouut’s mansion, then I changed something in it, but I don’t know how to compile back. Tell me, please, how can this be done and what parameters should I choose?

I don't think so, but at least you can convert other models now.
