TFirst: In the Society of Leopold quest, on the experience_table.txt says that i gain 2 XP from talking with Professor Johansen (in the walkthrough file included on the Extras says it too) but i only gain the 2 XP for persuade him to tell the secret about the sarcophagus.

You will get those XP only  once you report back to LaCroix, I'll correct the walkthrough to reflect hat...

Second: In endgame, inside the Venture Tower when i encounter that suicide guard dominated by Lacroix i fight him and kill him but he does not drop the Astrolite(he drops a weapon only), and the countdown keeps until the explosion.

This could indeed be a random bug in which case I can't fix it.

Speaking of bugs, my Malk didn't get "Missing Data" quest once again. But that happens often enough.

There was a problem with earlier 10.0 versions, but should be fixed in the next RC.

Another problem around Fortitude (not exactly). Well, i selected the history for Gangrel - Anda Gangrel, that gives +1 to Fortitude discipline. The problem is that i checked the console and when activates the ability does not count the +1 extra point from the history bonus(have Fortitude level 3 with the bonus from history, but only activates level 2 Fortitude).

Dont know if its a issue but the Blood Shield is not absorbing damage correctly. At least as i can remember, the shield dissipates when receive a certain amount of damage and now its like not absorbing any damage (its like no shield is activated) and i receive final death with it active (dont dissipates at all).

I think this is a feedback problem only, the line at the top will only mention the last stat change and ignore the bonus. As long as you get the correct blue number in the character sheet everything should be fine!

I never changed anything there besides making AI react to the sound and adding the red light effect. But the file says "Health_Buffer_Block_Percent" "50%", so maybe only 50% of the damage is shielded each time and if you are unlucky the last hit will kill you even though it's still on. I have seen both, but the file says "Duration" "-1" // Infinite and it does indeed take roughly double the hits to kill the player than without it...

Just checked. Anda bonus works for me.

Everything's fine with Blood Shield. It isn't meant to make you immortal, it acts like a discount Fortitude knock-off that dissipates after receiving enough damage. If that damage was received in a short time and you hadn't some time to regenerate, or if you activated it while you were already seriously injured of course you can die before it runs out. As a Tremere you should have more than enough blood, just use some of it to heal between encounters and fight by running around/away from the enemy stealing their blood instead of getting hit by an enemy.

Well, my patched version was installed with the option "No New Disciplines" marked. I will reinstall to see if works

The problem is that i tested against Tseng (that uses a Thirty Eigth to attack) max stats in defense and Bashing, Casted BS and he killed me with BS still active. I dont like the new modified disciplines much, but will try and test to see if works.

Edit: I tested again Blood Shield against Tseng (with Thirty Eight and a Shin Gunto) and i used blood packs do recover health when near death, and he almost killed me 3 to 4 times until the BS dissipates. I see no difference with BS or without it in terms of absorbing damage.

I attached some images to explain a bit better what is happen in the Fortitude issue.
- In the first screenshot you can see in char. sheet that the bonus aparently is normal.
- But then you see the second pic and the console is showing "Fortitude Level 2 activated"
- Then, in the upper left part of the second pic you see "FORTITUDE (3)" and "EFFECT GAINED: AUTOMATIC SOAK SUCCESSES+1" (which is a error because is Level 3 should be +3, or at least +2 because is the real level activated)

Well, this is what i have found till now. Remebering that i am using the last patch rc 1 and with "No New Disciplines" option market at the moment of patch install.

It could be that this is the reason. I had to fix Fortitude for this mode already!

I tested it against Tseng with nothing maxed and Blood Shield doubled the number of shots he needs to kill me. Normally Blood Shield failed before his last shot.

About the Blood Shield maybe im wrong, im no specialist in to the BS mechanics.

Woah... will you be my hero?? You. Are. Amazing. Truly. Honestly. For real.

Hopefully other mods could eventually be built onto this. It's sorta disappointing that all the major VTMB mods tend to be crashy and don't include the cool newer stuff, because they're all built on super old UP versions. I'll only be playing with this for the time being, because I just love all the happy fun cool stuff you've added to it recently. I also adore the sweet, sweet stability. YAY! :cometome:

The character screen shows that everything is as intended. The game just doesn' mention the +1 bonus because it is added via the history!

Hey Wesp! Thank you as always for your amazing work.

I've been playing through the new patch and found two major bugs. I haven't played the last few iterations of the patch, so I don't know if these have come up before:

1. During the Tutorial, when Jack tells you to try feeding on the bum, the bum is missing. I ended up having to restart and skip the Tutorial all together to continue playing.

2. During Night at the Library, the computer in the back room is missing. If I stand near the desk the "use computer" picture will pop up, but I can't actually interact with the invisible computer and move forward in the quest.

I've had no problems with any parts of the main quest line, but for a completionist like me it's a bit frustrating. :)

I never heard these before and I can't imagine how they could happen! It must be unique to your system, can you reproduce them or have you gotten some files corrupted?

I feel awfully bad for posting an issue here with all the effort Wesp is putting in, seems ungrateful, but I need some advice.

When I began playing the newest 10.0 UP+ with a Ventrue, I get enormous amounts of delay between me clicking to continue when the tutorial instructions pop up and the window actually disappearing. The delay is sometimes almost a minute with me maniacally clicking to confirm. Since I play on a laptop, I thought that the touchpad interfered somehow so I disabled it, but still the problem persists - even if I use exclusively a touchpad and not a separate mouse, I get the delay.
I never reinstalled the game since the 9.3 patch so I haven't tried that, because I never missed a single UP so everything I did had been basically "patching" the patch up. I am using the original, disk-based, install of the game.

I am not a programmer or a computer whiz so I don't know if it is something with my system, any advice would be appreciated.

I never heard that before. Are you on Windows 10? Because this is known to have some input issues...
