HI everyone

I'm just arrrived at DownTown after having completed the Sabbat warehouse destruction.

I was searching for the Tremere regent haven when suddenly some NPCs started fighting others NPCs. I don't think this is intended.
The NPCs never enter the fight with the player, just others npcs.
Any reasons for this beheviour?

The game was started with Unofficial Patch 9.9 Basic, and played only with this mod.
I'm playing on linux, but I made sure that the dbghelp.dll is loaded (setted override as native,bultin).

A little side note:
in the bugs_fix.ini lefting DWM FIX= 1  cause a small but persistent black box in the upper-left side of the screen. While it's small and it will not bothered me otherwise, it covered part of the dialogue subs box.
Wine gives this message : fixme:event:wait_for_withdrawn_state window 0x4004a/1800003
What I'm loosing keeping the DWM Fix to 0?
In the widescreen_fix.ini lefting auto bink ar = 1  cause the starting videos to acquire a 4:3 aspect ratio, lefting big black columns on the side.  (I have a 1366x768 monitor)
Again what  I loose keeping this option at 0?

I'm on ArchLinux x86. Kernel linux-zen or linux-covolunablu-gaming
Wine staging 3.3/3.4

Thanks.

Oh yes, it is :)! There are two groups of NPCs that will attack each other if they come too close. Internally one is called "Jets" and the other "Sharks", remind you of something?

Actually I don't know. If it improves your graphics go for it! These are basic fixes that should not affect other areas of the gameplay...

DWM stands for Desktop Windows Manager on Windows Vista and higher. That bugfix supposed to be irrelevant on Wine.

Ok thanks for answering.

It's that a reference of West Side Story (I googled it.)?

Does interfering in the fight  cause a humanity loss?

I wonder what the DWX Fix change code wise. There is certainly a bug in wine, but it's hard to know where.

I think so. Innocents are innocents...
