I think I've found something not right:

If you are a Torrie this is the dialogue with Gary:

Code: [Select]
{ 301 }{ Boo! }
....
{ 303 }{ You are the most offensive and obscene thing I've ever seen. }

Code: [Select]
{ 311 }{ En garde, Toreador. You vainglorious, narcissistic poseur! How I loathe that determination of your kind to belie your true nature with Paris fashions and pomp. You are a dead thing - a creature of the shadows. Start acting like one. }
....
{ 313 }{ Jealous? Do you miss the surface? Do you miss your face? }{ 521 }

Code: [Select]
{ 521 }{ Miss me, boss? }
{ 522 }{ Do you? }{ 321 }

Code: [Select]
{ 321 }{ [Laughs]You don't get it, do you? Sit and look pretty. Pretend you never died. Do some finger painting. What a pathetic waste of blood. }
{ 322 }{ Who are you? }
{ 323 }{ Where is the sarcophagus? }

I think adding the 521 line between 311 and 321 ruins the narration. What do you think?

I discovered an annoying bug in the Museum, the basement area with all the cameras and guards. The guard in the first security room (where you can hack the cameras and turn them off) never actually leaves, because each time he tries, he steps out and bumps into the door which opens outwards into the hallway, blocking his way. So he just goes back in, making it pretty much impossible to get to the computer without killing him. This happened consistently in several playthroughs both when I and my boyfriend tried it.

I might take a look at this but I don't know if this is fixable.

Even if you don't have Disciplines for that, just feeding a bit on him should send him into a trance...

Damn, never noticed that he's trying to leave, thought it was supposed to be like that for some extra realism and challenge, to hack the computer right behind his back. Why should he leave his post in the first place?

He is supposed to leave and go for a soft drink and I have now fixed that :)!

Awesome, thanks Wesp! :rock:

I thought about trying this too, but it doesn't seem to work - you can feed on him but he doesn't go into a trance, and Command doesn't seem to work on him either (he attacks you the moment he sees you). In fact, all of the guards in that place seem to have this issue. I tried using Brain Wipe on him but that doesn't last long enough to hack the computer.

I always did one of these, never had to complain:
- massacre
- carnage
- slaughter
- murder
- torture
- tickling

Fetishes are anathema. I will rather try defilement and jaywalking.

Of course feed ing doesn't put him in a trance. This is a combat zone and he is hostile.
But dominate or dementation should work. Although I doubt any of theese disciplines lasts long enough for the player to hack the computer.

More than a fetish I was thinking of this:

Oh, OK; I thought it would still put him in a trance if I ambushed him and fed on him without him noticing me first. But I suppose that would have made it too easy. :P

I encountered a problem with the Serial Killer during the fight at Brothers Salvage (as a Tremere). Using Blood Purge on him makes the game crash without fail - he starts doing the vomiting animation and it crashes. Using other Disciplines (like Blood Theft) seems to be OK...

Also, who in the world is that vampire in a suit who disappears in a puff of smoke as you enter Brothers Salvage?  :holy: :chinscratch:

That's a serious bug

Regarding the guy, that's
Spoiler for Hiden:
the library lasombra.
Someone knows why he was added there (just a curiosity)?

As to why he is there:
Spoiler for Hiden:
If you read Scott's diary, you will learn that the Lasombra was recruiting for the Sabbat. And as is usual in pc rpgs, the player coincidentally just turned up at the same time as the Lasombra... :taunt:
