You should make sure the game runs on best GPU, because some laptops have twin graphics for desktop and 3D apps separately.
If this case doesn't help, maybe it's a new GPU's drivers problems, and there's no solution for now...

Any idea why the Skip Intro is not showing up ?

Skip intro is only visible on resolutions > 800x600 and if Bloodlines finds a saved game (which the UP provides).

The one called "Downtown"? It's possible to change his name to "no savegames found" or something like that? :)

No, there is no actual saved game, just an empty file that looks like one :)!

I know it doesn't work, just seeing it called downtown made me wonder if it was possible to change its name....

You can't see it and it isn't called downtown, this must be one of your own...

From when I've started using the UP (including all the computers I've used it) that savegame always appears as "downtown". Attached proof of my experience, here using the UP 10.3, fresh install, loaded the giovanni map to the console to quickly see the restorated features, saves in these maps then deleted (but still it was always like this without saves).

I don't get that, and the date isn't matching either. Maybe it is created at the start of the game as the tutorial is downtown.

Nope, in the save folders there's only the "vampire-999.sav"
If I have some saves it doesn't appear, but as I delete one it comes out.
It was always like this, on my computers, my brothers's, the old xp,....

Weird, this might be the cause. If I delete all in Windows with only 999 left, I see nothing at all! Maybe deleting in game recreates it...

It's not a problem at all. It was just weird having this thing since always without anyone else ever experienced it
