Hi Dr. Werner! I love your work and would like to ask: What and where can I learn/study to make fixes and mods as you did with this game? What knowledges and skills did you had to learn?

Basically it's all learning by doing. Bloodlines had the big advantage that both the dialogue and the Python scripts were normal text files that can be edited with any editor. From there I learned to edit the entities, which I had done already a bit in my HL mods, and later I learned to really edit maps with the Hammer editor. So just start with something simple and continue from there!

Hello, amazing work on the VtmB plus patch. Had a weird new bug pop up today though, every time I try to sneak the sneak monitor stays at 0 and NPC’s don’t see me at all unless I actively engage them. Turned notarget on and off a few times, reloaded earlier saves where sneaking was normal but the same glitch always eventually appears after entering a new area. Just about out of ideas of how to fix it, any solutions?

Sorry, but I have no idea. Maybe this is connected to an unfixable bug that happens if you save while being behind special cover that improves your stealth value temporarily. This bonus sticks with you after reloading until you maxed out sneaking even without knowing!

Hey Wesp, can I use your edited c0a0 map from Uplink Addon for a small addon I'm working on (basically an improved version of the Barney inconsistency fix), don't worry, i'll credit you.

Saw ya in the credits of VTMB Wesp5, guess that's from the Unofficial Patch work you put in the game, would make sense :)

Still a shame White Wolf Studios seized operations tho,I was kind of shattered when I read about that.

It would of been nice if they were still around and made us a sequel or prequel.
Although I am not sure how Bloodlines 2 will pack out, I just hope they do it well and give the game justice and a new life.
If for all I have seen that new game does feel somewhat off from this original.

Nothing beats the original is with many things. Also read your interview here

Nice to see someone so devoted to keep this classic game alive and updated in the best most possible ways.

And yea I did know it used an Alpha Version of Source Engine it's also the first game that used the Source Engine as well, many say it's Half Life 2 haha nope it's Vampire hehe

My hopes for Bloodlines 2 are quite low after they fired Mitsoda, who was nice enough to give me some infos for the patch restorations...
