clan quest mod 4.0 issue
« on: December 09, 2018, 02:35:26 AM »
Im having issues loading the game, I double click on the new icon and sometimes it loads and sometimes it does not.   the most i have been able to get it to do is to get to the menu but when i click on new game it crashes and goes back to the desktop view.

Some basic troubleshooting for start:
- which pc do you have (xp, vista, 7, assrape 10)?
- where you get the game (steam, gog or none of the two)?
- where you installed the game?
- you installed the mod in the right place?
- you used the clan quest link on the desktop (or any with the command line)?

I do indeed have assrape 10, installed on steam, i installed the mod in program files, steam, steam apps, common vampire masquerade.  it was the natural route that was suggested.   I used the CQM icon on my desktop as well.  i have had to click on it several times just to get to the  start menu.  once i click new game it crashes.  thats as far as i have gotten it.  usually it crashes right after i double click the cqm icon .

I have 'assrape 10' but have never had any extra issues with Bloodlines for it.

well I was able to get it to run enough to pick a character.  I made all the way to just before meeting SMiling Jack and it crashed.

I know assrape10 has many issues, and not only in this game....

One last basic question: when you arrived in the main menù there was the logo "clan quest mod" under "vampire the masquerade"

And now about your previous questions: steam you say? As far as I remember( I have no direct experience since I have the original CDs) games in steam are by default costantly scanned in case of changes in the game files. While is useful for non modded games, with any mods it's a pain in the ass. I don't remember how to disable it (or even where to look or anyhow this function is called) but maybe you since you use steam know what I'm talking about

Actually there was a rectangle made of purple dots covering the area where  Vampire  the masquerade and clan quest mod would be.

Purple dots? Then the mod is not installed correctly. Go to the main directory (where is "vampire.exe") and see if there is a folder called CQM

Maybe it's a problem with the installation in /ProgramFiles.
Never install games there because win has some funny ideas what you (and your programs) may or may not do in that directory.
Oh, and check the path in the start icon. There was a problem with the icon leading to burgermeister's install directory. I don't know it this is fixed yet.

Target "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines\Vampire.exe" -game CQM 

 Start in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines"
those are the pathways for the icon.

Sorry for the delay, I had to underwent surgery....
Try to move the "Vampire The Masquerade - Bloodlines" folder to your users folder, create a new link to "vampire.exe" and add manually the "-game CQM" command

I tried that and i was able to create a character but when I went to start it, it crashed again.  I give up....lol Thanks everybody for all the help.  I will try another mod and see if i can get one of the older ones to work if i have trouble with those i will just continue to play the regular version.  again Thanks everybody.
