I have done the original beastform sheet animation. I add the vtx's files because i change the LOD inside to one, so the MDL wont lower definition in the character sheet. The baastform must be there too.

I have look into the Plus patch(10.2rc1) and found the VTXs missing. If somebody tell you the model in the sheet is not perfect you will know why. Just add the new VTXs in the folder(they are the same).


One other thing, i have play with the barber chair in Lily scene and add two more clamps. So now they can close and open in the animation. Looks cool to me. A video is below.(The animation is better now since i move the chair during the sequence, no video for that.)

Wonderful, many thanks! I had almost forgotten about that. The vtxs should always be there as the patch installs all basic files first and then puts the plus files on top!

Indeed it does! Can you provide the files so I can include it in the patch too?

I have put the change of the map in a text file with a command in python: moveChair() because i dont know how to do it in the map.
Add the new barberChair with the new TTHs for the new clamps.
You have to lower the static barberchair in the map because we need a prop_dynamic here, i have use -100 in the Z coord. with the bspedit tool. The number in bspedit is 255. Of course if you  recompile the map you can delete the static chair.

You can check the chair with the viewer of the SDK. When you click model you can change the skin and see what it does.

Did i say i love the viewer in the SDK? Well i do. It's help me to see if i make an error with my model change like the skin thing for example.

I you want the map i have change i can upload that too. All the change are in it and it's the map from 10.2rc1.

I don't want to sound greedy but is it possible to add more frames to the animation? The idea is awesome and the clamps look great, but it's jarring seeing them transition instantly from closed to open position.

No need, I recompiled the clinic already before so I just integrated your chair without moving anything around or using Python. Many thanks!

great work.
wesp it seems a lot of guys have problem with using the phone in santa monica even after reading the text it seems they can't use it.
since it seems all other part of game works corretly could it be that there is a problem inside? of course using phones in bloodlines was always trouble for some people

I just can't reproduce this, the phone works fine for me! Also "a lot of guys" is relative, about 20000 people downloaded 10.1 or 10.2 and only very few reported this :)...

actually a friend of mine has the problem and after checking for solution i saw it's a common problem but like i said the phone problem it's present in other places too it just seems for some people it won't work sometime(hollywood phone is most common)

is there any console way to handle it?

While we are at it, I have an idea to "fix" the animation of the handset of the telephone always reversing as it ended and not at the end of the dialog. It's possible to made it invisible during the conversation and maybe add a similar model in the hands? Rough but may works. Same with the rats: the bug of them floating in midair doesn't happen always with the UP but some rare times still happens (plus a static dead rat in the water when is supposed to floats is a pain in the eyes)

I guess only DLLullu would be able to do something like that, if he is reading this ;). The main problem in my opinion is that there is only an animation showing the player get the phone, talking, and putting it down. With a fixed length...

I have 10.1 installed, but I wan't to start a new game, can I just install 10.2 over existing patch? It just so happens that every time I replayed the game with a new UP version before, I had to re-install it, but now I don't, so just asking to be on the safe side.

Yes, no need to reinstall the whole game. Just start a new game!

Lines 704, 705 and 885 in Nines dlg file has the same problem as lines 775 and 783 in Damsel dlg file (they are inaccessible in the plus version). I suppose they should receive the same treatment (I mean Nines as Damsel). It's related to the death of the werewolf. If the player has killed it the game does not recognize this.

A couple of questions:
didn't patches scrolls had the precedence on the patches (just curiosity)?
why Malcolm's bribe now is in Mercurio's house?

Originally yes, but at the moment they can't keep up with the Release Candiates so I started doing them on ModDB too.

Quote
why Malcolm's bribe now is in Mercurio's house?

Someone on the German board argued that it would be very recklessly from the player to give Malcolm his real adress. Imagine he went to the police because of the attempted blackmail and they turn up in your haven during the day while you are asleep and open the window shutters to get some light in! Instant burning death :)...

You can also give two options in the dialogue, Mercurio house (safer but needs higher intelligence or whatever) and your house (which you'll receive a nasty visit from him and you have to manage to save yourself)  :razz: :razz: :rofl:

Yep, and surely Mercurio would be glad to help in your half baked extortion scheme...
"Yea, bring on those cops I avoided by not calling an ambulance..." :taunt:

You can try making the game more "realistic" until it dies...

There's someone in Santa Monica we don't mind being harassed by the cops?  :chinscratch:

Hint: go to 0:40 https://youtu.be/mo7MO-OEGO0 (https://youtu.be/mo7MO-OEGO0) and try to recognize the voice....

I was pretty much aware of this, but Mercurio is a ghoul and thus by far not as sensitive as the player who might not care about Mercurio anyway. Also I couldn't think off a better place, the original poster suggested the parking garage but would you drop money in a place where any bum could pick it up?

And if you blackmail Malcolm after you told all about Mercurio to the prince?

It wouldn't matter. LaCroix wouldn't be so stupid to kill him where he lives...

Post by: Barabbah on January 23, 2019, 11:46:52 AM
No, I mean, it's mercurio who receives the money and then he gives it to you in a dialogue? I have never tried to betray him and honestly I don't know if you'll do it lacroix makes sure he's dead, but if he disappears from the game who gives you malcoms' money?

There are a lot of public places you can use to make a drop in Santa Monica. You can use the coffee shop, the pier, the diner, and the news stands. As for specific objects where it can be dropped into, that's up to you - in a worst-case scenario you can probably use some geometry as a hidden container ("tape the envelope under the bench", "place the money in the bathroom", etc.). Maybe you can even remove the invisible container after the quest is finished.

Just a thought. ;)

No, you just have Malcolm hide it there because it's close to the clinic and easily accessable. We thought a lot of other locations but public ones like the Smoke Shop or the Diner have too many witnesses which might take the money too. Outside on the hub or the pier the cops are already patrolling. Also the player has to find the spot in the game and it has to be not too far away ;)!

That's risky, but the translator is already working...
