    Tags: Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines

    <b>Tessera</b> has pointed out <a href=http://rpgcodex.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?p=380638#380638>in our forums</a> the release of <b>Acrimonius</b>' patch for <a href=http://www.vampirebloodlines.com/entrance.html>Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines</a>, bringing it up to version 4.04AT. Here are some of the general fixes:<blockquote>GENERAL:
    <br>
    <br>
    * Cleared the theatre after the player's opening movie trial.
    <br>
    * Restored some missing sounds.
    <br>
    * Made VV's e-mails appear at the correct times.
    <br>
    * Made LaCroix's payment for Tommy Flayton's review appear in mailbox when it should.
    <br>
    * Added zoom sway effect to SWAT sniper rifle, and increased based damage.
    <br>
    * Restored Cabbie's alternative greetings.
    <br>
    * Changed conditions and text for Mercurio's "Repaid Favors" email.
    <br>
    * Fixed some subtitles in Heather's dialogue.
    <br>
    * Fixed the huntersDead[] array in all main city hubs - hunters should now spawn correctly when a player violates the Masquerade too many times.
    <br>
    * Removed duplicate $ignorez lines from money envelope inventory images.
    <br>
    * Moved Beckett's downtown spawn point to (hopefully) fix the infamous Beckett wait bug.

    I hope I'll live long enough to see the day when the last fanmade patch for that game comes out....

    Me too ;)! But Bloodlines is so complex that some observant fan always brings new problems to my attention. As for the "true" patch, this time it's indeed not based on my patches. But as I already mentioned in the other thread, what's so "true" about the following changes:

    * Restored [] Malkavian lines where appropriate (invented by Tessera himself AFAIK)
    * Gave roof guards sniper and assault rifles instead of shotguns and uzis (but if I swap weapons it's "false")
    * Made flamethrower a tad easier to find (yeah, it's floating right besides the Ra blade)
    * Added zoom sway effect to SWAT sniper rifle, and increased based damage (changing weapon stats already, now that's "true")

    Hey, that's a good point. Those are more or less exactly the kinds of things you were criticized for, Wesp. Ironic!

    I guess someone took some "inspiration" from looking at other patches. :lol:

    Only plane tickets can help end this.

    Yeah, that's what is bothering me, especially as they still call their patch "true" instead of something like "basic" as I do with my almost-bug-fixes-only-version. In the end there just is no "true", either the broken state it was released in or personal opinion on what to fix and how to fix it. Anyway, I'm glad their readme is at least moderately towards my patches now ;)...

    I'm sorry if I came across as crazy when I criticised your patch, Wesp5, you're the intelligent one in this problem.

    But I'm glad Tessera made its patch and brought you and the battle here, so your basic patch got made.
