                This is my third play through of the game and I installed the latest patch. The unofficial one.
 
 Anyway I've noticed a couple of things that have me a bit confused. First I was unable to get the "lily" quest and wondering why. I saved just prior to talking to the guy on the beach and went through all the dialog options, and just didn't get it no matter what I tried.
 
 Second, while doing the therese and jeannette quest I went into the diner, and as usual got attacked by the thugs in there. However right after the phone call and I try to leave, the police are after me. I don't recall this from my first two times through the game although it does make sense. Is this something that was added in the patch?
 
 Third, which has nothing to do with the patch, I have dominate as one of my feats but not sure what to put into it to advance it. Is this bascally the same as intimidate?
 
 As far as the Lily quest, perhaps I didn't install the patch correctly or something as I can't seem to find a version number of the game on the main screen, however I do recall installing it and didn't seem to have a problem.
 
 Other than that, I love this freaking game. It is probably the most bizzare and twisted video game ever made. It's so nice to have a game with adult themes that doesn't pull any punches. I have laughed my ass off several times now. Gimble is just a classic and when Tung told me that the Sabbat have the life expectency of a fruit fly I nearly fell off my chair I was laughing so hard.
 
 Any replies appreciated.

 I haven't changed anything in that dialogue since April so this must be a problem on your side. There are many possible lines to get that quest, just tell him you will look into the "thin blood" issue. Also open the console and look if G.E_Info is 0 or 1. It should be 0 to get the quest.

 No. I haven't done that.

 The police thing happened to me once. I think the game interprets it as a normal murder occasionally, and spawns cops accordingly. I just tried again, and it didn't happen.

 thanks for the replys.
 
 With the Diner thing, it happened 3 or 4 times so I just ran and hid for a while, so no big deal. Besides, I had just slaughtered 4 or 5 guys, so it does make sense that the cops would come.
 
 The Lily quest I tried several times to get and no matter what I did I couldn't get it. I ended up just killing everyone on the beach, (more just to see if I could than anything else), and have moved on from there. The thing is though I really liked that quest, so I may start over as I'm not very far into the game anyway.
 
 I checked to to make sure that the patch files were on my comp and couldn't find them, so perhaps the game wasn't patched and that may have been my problem. So I went and applied the official patch from Troika, but I still can't find a version # anywhere in the main menu. How would I find that?
 
 If I hadn't patched the game, I may just use the official patch as that's what I used the second time through without a problem other than minor stuff. However is there a thread somewhere that tells exactly what changes were made to the core gameplay with the unofficial patch? I know there is a sticky that explains what changes were made in the 3.3, however it doesn't explain what changes were made since the game came out.
 
 Thanks again.

 That may indeed be the case as in the official 1.2 patch readme Troika states that they made getting this quest easier.

 I don't think it is visible somewhere. Maybe in the console?

 Just look at the complete patch readme. In my opinion the core gameplay hasn't changed much. The most basic issues are there is no more respawning and every enemy drops his weapon.
