Nice, though it seems like one of those patches with arbitrary tweaks and not just bugfixes so personally I think I'll skip it.

I've been playing pretty much the whole game in third person view (except when sniping), so don't know what there is to restore about melee combat?

Stoffe from my understanding there is two versions after you downloaded it. One that fixes bugs (And restore cut content i think), and one that add completly new content

Lantzen is correct. During the installation the installer will give you the option to install either the "basic" patch or the "plus" patch. Choose the "basic" patch if you want to forgo all of the gratuitous embellishment of the "plus" patch.

And I am in complete ageement with stoffe that Wesp goes way overboard with the changes that he makes to game with the "plus" patch.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

Tessera apparently has made a 'true' patch that's supposed to fix the bugs and restore the game to what Troika supposedly wanted it to be--link is in the post here or here in Tessera's thread.
Apparently Tessera's relations with Wesp are a bit strained because of the 2 rival patches.

Edit: Darling Violetta's 'Smaller God' isn't replaced in the Empire hotel, is it? I prefer her song to Ash's.

Nice find, Jae. I only wish you'd found it about 2 days sooner.

I'm too far into this playthrough to start over with a new patch now *pouts*

Loved the game. I thought the intro scene was pretty hilarious though. First time I watched it I was like

I wish they had different movies for the different clans though. Something about a Ventrue ****ing in some ratty apartment or hotel or whatever just bothered me.

Yes, there is a lot of controversy concerning Tessera's patch, but I used it in my first playthrough and liked the game experience a lot better than with Wesp's "plus" patch, which I thought made way too many changes. It's also less than half the size, which for people stuck with dialup (like me) means a lot.

I really don't have a clue as to whether Tessera stole anything from Wesp or not.

Yes, but that's a great excuse to do another playthrough after this one.

The Starline Haven -or- The Pawn Shop Haven?

I have a problem with knowing that the apartment vents are able to be opened. Grrr... I know its all psychological. Lol... I love the fish tank wall and widescreen television you get though. How do you replace the fish when they are dead?

I'm in China Town now. I think this is my 20th+ play through. I will probally choose another clan next.

Presumably the intro cinematic where your character gets Vamped. The room you're in there looks pretty seedy.

The nosferatu entrance. Though the Skyline apartments building is a bit creepy overall, with the spy monitor in the basement and all.

According to all the reviews and info I've read about Bloodlines, there is supposed to be a song in the game called Needle's Eye by Die My Darling. I have looked through the resources thoroughly and haven't seen it. Is this song actually in the game that anyone knows of? Or was that only on the soundtrack cd itself?

It's in the game, but not as a stand-alone song as far as I can tell. It's part of the final Deb of Night radio show episode, after the commercials and the Darling Violetta song. It's in the radio_loop_5.mp3 file, beginning at around the 17 minute mark.

I went to The Patch Scrolls to download the 5.4 patch. When I noticed there was a new version. I guess great minds think a like.

I only very recently got this game. Right now it is barely reminding me of Deus Ex and Half Life 2.

It is to bad this game didn't get a sequel or a console release

Tim Cain, Leonard Boyarsky, and Jason Anderson are great story tellers but not very good in the QA/taking responsibility for QA department. Which is what ultimately lead to the demise of Troika Games.

Luckily their three titles have such a loyal fanbase that there are comprehensive fan-made patches for all three of them.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."

I'd rather had have Troika Games do a better job at QA-QC so they could still be around today. I think they could even be bigger than BioWare.

I reckon that the death of Troika games is more to do with the collapse of Black Isle (the RPG giant of the time) due to Interplay's absurd business plans and the rise of BioWare's NWN era (still ongoing) than their abysmal QA. Why would a publisher put money into a risky title like, say, Arcanum, which is entirely without a proven fanbase when it can hire BioWare to do something safe and ultimately boring when compared to the games of yesteryear?

Anyone know if there is some way of running this game in widescreen resolutions? The options screen only seem to allow 3 resolutions (800x600, 1024x768, 1280x1024). Poked around the config file but couldn't notice any obvious way of bypassing this.

The unofficial patch comes with a resolution patcher in the \Tools directory.

Yes, the Unofficial Patch will patch the resolution when you install it.

For anyone who's interested, Steam has this great game on sale for $9.99.

I am pleasantly surprised to find a group of fans still playing and enjoying this game after such a long time. I bought it when it first came out and have never completely stopped playing it. I think an MMORPG based on this game would rock, even better if you could keep the number of players down to less then 500 (but that is just my preference, people building such a thing would rather have the money I am sure).

While I'm not a fan of MMOs, I think that you're right. An MMO based on VtM would indeed rock.

I finally finished the game, although I freely admit that I cheated at parts(especially where sneaking is required!). I went solo after the cabbie somehow talked me into it, and then played back to watch a few alternate endings. I haven't watched the Kuei-Jin one, but I've already read a spoiler for it, so wth! The game probably would have been easier if I didn't piss off Vandal:P I don't think I could have gotten past the Kuei-Jin without godmode. Or the werewolf, for that matter!

The final battle with the sheriff was pretty easy as a Brujah:P In the first part, using Celerity (with Potence and Presence if you wish) can get you through with hardly a scratch. In the second part, you're fine with use of Celerity and switching to melee once in a while to slash the ghouls (? bat things or whatever?) to ribbons.

All in all, definitely one of the best games that I have ever played. It's a shame that Troika no longer exists.

Next playthrough--Malkavian!



The sun goes down and the sky reddens, pain grows sharp.
light dwindles. Then is evening
when jasmine flowers open, the deluded say.
But evening is the great brightening dawn
when crested cocks crow all through the tall city
and evening is the whole day
for those without their lovers

After their dialog, run to the back of the short hall you entered from. They will charge single-file down this hallway when attacking. If you have high firearms skills, you can get through this fight without taking a blow.

Run past him, through the fence, inside the building to the landing with the controls for the observatory doors. Wait until he's almost inside then hit the switch. The doors will then crush him.

If you're quick, you can do all this without taking a single hit. If you're not, then you can still do all this taking maybe one blow.

I really wasn't trying to start anything, only trying my best to state fact, if anyone cared, if they don't that's fine too. As long as you have a good game experience that's all the matters.

It's quite common knowledge and verifiable on the active Bloodlines forums like the official at gamespy and gamebanshee. The true-patch has been allowed to post it's content recently, in the official forums after being banned on gamespy. He also was banned on gamebanshee, though I don't know if he can post there again yet. Basically he had to promise to stop going into Wesp's threads and making up things starting trouble.

I have been testing on the Unofficial Patch since it first was first started by DanUpright, at the first official forums on Dilapidation, in case I needed to make any kind of disclosure. Leonard and many of the devs came to the forum and even asked for help, with the game breaking bug at Society of Leopold, which Dan was able to fix and started the Unofficial Patch.

--------------------------
Best I can tell Troika didn't make it cause they never were given enough time to make their games, by their publishers. Of course all the publishers wanted the best top tier RPGs, but as so often the case they rarely if ever let Devs have the time they need. Troika games always had the most complex choices and possible ways of solving quests, which made it nigh impossible to Q/A, it's not that they weren't good at it, afaik they made some of the best RPGs ever.

Bloodlines was obviously caught up in the Half-Life 2 Code theft which froze the work on Bloodlines since Activision had to wait for HL2 to ship first and there was no way of knowing when HL2 would ship. Gabe later admitted the real reason it took so long was HL2 was not ready which killed Bloodlines development. Troika tried to get another game started and had a demo for Fallout 3, but they didn't get the job. sadly. Once Activision was given the word, they gave Troika 3 months to just bug fix to get the game out the door. This is when they started cutting all the content like Multiplayer, which btw is sort of working now days, with a working server iirc.

You need to run to the cave with the jetty and get on the boat to escape. The easiest way to beat the timer is to use Celerity.

There is a bug that sometimes show up at the end of the society of leopold (but not always). Don't think god mode has anything to do with it (even though it can mess things up sometimes).

You can try this workaround if you find no other way of solving it. Make sure you start the game with the console active. Then in the game, get as close to the boat as you can without stepping onto it (you don't want to trigger the area transition). Then pause/go out to the menu, activate the console and type in (it's case sensitive IIRC):
