Very cool! I'm excited to see the clan-specific dialogues

For the most part they're pretty subtle. When the Gangrel volunteers to track down Carson and Muddy for Arthur, the dialog lends more to animalistic phrases like "I'll see if I can sniff him out for you." When talking to Strauss, most characters will say things like "thanks, Max," but the Tremere is a bit more formal and says "thank you, Regent."

One of the more dramatic changes is if you're a Ventrue, you know exactly what biotech firm Adam Dunsirn is trying to get you to invest in, and why it's a bad idea (and it's reasonable that you'd know, because it's one of the cover articles on the Money Mountain magazines which you can find laying on tables throughout LA).

2003 XBox game Hunter: The Reckoning - Redeemer had a couple of billboards visible in the streets, and I finally figured out how to extract their textures. They're included below.

Obvious the resolution is low and the design isn't great, but they're a good foundation for creating a new design. So I think that's what I'll do.

For those curious:

I mocked up an HD version based on the King original design. While I'm not going to use it as-is, I've added it as a "previous" billboard, since it's from 2003, being covered with a newer 2004 design for King's Woody Creek Bourbon. It'll be visible above the Last Round, with the completed Woody Creek billboard visible in Hollywood.

Does anyone know where subtitles are stored? I initially thought it was just done via the dlg files, but as far as I'm aware, there's no dlg files for the radio, and yet it has subtitles.

Happy to be corrected if Deb's got dlg files I've overlooked.

By memory it should be somewhere in the sounds folder (and still by memory in files called .lip)

You are right. The radio subtitles are in sound/radio, but sadly each time you save and load they get out of sync...
