  •                 I just finished my second go-round with the game, choosing the Lacroix ending this time. I'd like to see the others (particularly the Kuei-Jin ending), but I really don't feel like slogging through more not-entirely-interesting-after-a-while combat just to see them. Is there some way the video files can be extracted from the game so I can see what goes down without having to actually, you know... work for it?

  •                 I cannot recall, but they aren't videofiles. They cutscenes are made with the game engine. Maybe if anyone have the savegames for the endings?

  •                 Yes, good point. I've done some digging, but the only link I could find to any saved games is from 2004, and of course is long gone. My own saved game gives me every option except the Kuei-jin's, I must have done something to annoy Ming Xiao somewhere along the line. I thought I was being nice to her. Anyway, does anyone have a savegame with the Kuei-jin option included they could hook me up with?

     no... you just have to be carefull with what you say to "caine"... the lacriox, the loner and the annarch endings get pushed a bit, the camarilll one is a little harder to find... and the kuejin ending is the hardest... it all depends what you say to our lovely taxt driver.

     Save the game right after the bloodhunt and before you get into the cab.
     
     If you are nice to LaCroix and Ming Xhao, you can see four of the five endings.  
     
     There may be a way to get the tremere ending without being tremere but I have never seen the option come up.
     
     You can actually cruise through the rest of the game fairly quickly using notarget and godmode.
     
     When testing a patch, I usually play through once without cheats and then go through the other endings with godmode and notarget.

  •                 Use the level warp console command to warp to the taxi - make a choice, then warp to the ending maps (they're called something like endsequence_a/endsequence_b - each contains 2 endings). Can't remember the command though it comes up as an auto choice when you're using the console - use the second one because the first seemed to crash the game.

  •                 I've played around a lot with the taxi conversation. I can get all the endings except Ming Xiao's - I can support Lacroix, I can support the Anarchs, I can support the Camarilla against Lacroix (putting Straus in charge), I can strike out on my own, but I cannot come up with a single thing that leads me to even a hint of the Kuei-jin ending. I'm not sure what I did wrong, except for hinting to the guy in the Red Dragon that maybe Ming Xiao wasn't quite as pure in her motives as he thought, and I may have given her a bit of lip service once or twice - but never anything that appeared to mess things up. In fact, the final conversation with her after the Hallowbrook Hotel ended with her saying that she hoped we would meet as friends again next time.
     
     For what it's worth, I'm playing a Malkavian, and I haven't committed any serious crimes or breaches of etiquette against anyone in the game.

     Hmm ..

     There is no Tremere ending. You are probably referring to
     the alternate Camarilla ending in which your character
     supports Maximillians rise to power. Perform the Plague
     Bearer quest on his behalf. Get the book on Thaumaturgical
     creatures when you visit him. When arriving in Hollywood
     agree to kill the Golem, confront Strauss and persuade the
     truth from him about its creation. Then after you kill it
     do not tattle on Strauss with that pathethic worm Isaac.
     State that you have not given up on the Camarilla and you
     will get the MaxCam ending.

     Tsk, spreading such vile innuendo amongst those would
     oppose her control as well as acting most rude and
     uncivilized. And you expect her to give your lowly self
     even the time of day?

     I have never tested it mind you because I find the whole
     option distasteful but I am told that to get the Ming
     ending you need to slobber all over shoes in an equal
     fashion to Prince LaCroix (if you wish to remain on his
     good side). Choose the most friendly, demure and grateful
     answer you can. Do not spread intrigant innuendo against
     her and it should be available. In short, confirm her
     pitiful self delusion by basically agreeing that she is
     as superior to you as she thinks she is.
     
     Coincidentally, the music video Bloodhunt on Munchies
     website (find the link in the Fan Creations area) holds
     the most important scene from this ending, namely the
     ultimate fate of your character.

  •                 I'm not going to play through the whole thing again just so I can see a different ending. I know what happens, I'd just like to see it for myself. But the longer this drags on without somebody coming across with a savegame, the more it seems like I'm pretty much hosed.

     The endings don't actually have names.  I tend to refer to them as tremere, lacroix, ming xaio, anarch, and alone.
     
     See how easy that is?  You can tell specifically what ending I am refering to.
     
     By being overly picky, as you are, you have to be more specific if you refer to it as the camerilla ending.

     Malkavian is fun but you cant do the ming xaio ending.

     Actually, I didn't kill the golem and allied him against the tremere clan, but I still could choose the Camarilla way with Strauss.

     Well most of us play through it again to try it with a different clan, but to each his own.  (Though a play-through with a Malkavian is always recommended if you like humor in your RPGs)

     Damn. Kuei-Jin ending is the only ending I haven't seen (despite that I have played through a lot of times). I think the camarilla ending is the best, or would be the best in first play.

     I think the kue jin ending is the best.  It's the most interesting and fun, though not so good for the player character.
     
     To get the ending all you have to do is be nice to ming zhao.  
     
     Dont accuse her of anything.  
     
     Dont suggest to Wong Ho that the recent tong troubles are caused by her.  
     
     And, dont play a malkavian (for some reason ming zhao is instantly offended with you just for being a malk).
