That's a huge mess, I rather check out the log you provided :)!
Okay, here's the result of scanning latest 10.6 rc1. See for "No links found" and "Missing audio" strings. You also should understand that if some line sounds familiar to you, it doesn't mean the program overlooked it. It means it restored by some other way, not by direct links from dlg, vcd, python or lip files. The most of lines are generic stuff like "I'll send you email". But there are completely unique I don't remember myself!

Still your tool should better be improved because right now there are too many bad results! Like the not-linked Johnny lines are quite obviously in his floats folder with lip files and wav files and this is true for many other NPC, like Lu Fang or Ricky, with some files being recognized as floats and not others. The whole not-linked Mandarin lines are from his conversation with Johnny in the Glaze and later in the Fu Syndicate. The conversations on the Dane have been restored by the patch and are still listed as missing! And all of Gary's line are listed as audio missing, which is not true. Last not least, please remove all positive identified voices, like linked-in-game or used-as-floats, so we only have the really unlinked voices left!

Okay, I did what I can. Added wide search on LIP files and walking through VCD links. Log is now twice smaller ;). Still there are lines we may consider as used, but you should understand, that if it's restored somewhere in LIP files, the program finds matching by the phrase text only (there's no other way). So, even if one symbol would be different inside of LIP, the program will treat this line as unlinked (as there are no other links - in DLG, Scripts, Maps etc.). That's why Dane conversations will always be marked as "not linked". It is not AI or neural network, and it's not able to know what happens inside of text. Also, program doesn't know if some unlinked line is duplicated under other number (or even other dlg file) which is linked normally (f.e. Gary phone lines in Gary.dlg or Tourette's phrases in Therese). This requires third stage of work: backward cross-checking, which will really slow down the tool. Maybe I'll do it later though (I'm planning to expand it to searching any other unused content types and include it into the SDK later). For now it's better than nothing anyway.

Attached new version of tool in case if someone else is need it, and log file is inside.

offtopic: Site is slow as hell now and I wanted to send it to you yesterday yet... :(

I assume that like with all updates, this can only be used in a new game?
Strange is the night where black stars rise,
And strange moons circle through the skies,
But stranger still is
Lost Carcosa.

Drat! Well, I guess this gives me an excuse to replay it at a later date.  :excited:

I suspect that only map changes will break saved games, so if you are still not yet at the Hallowbrook Hotel continuing a 10.6rc1 save might work fine.

Hmm okay, I might try it, though I'm afraid of something going wrong, I'd hate to bork my game and start over.


I have another question though: did you change it so that Blood Purge no longer works on Bishop Vick? I could have sworn it used to, but I just fought him and it didn't make him vomit! Certainly made that fight tougher for my Tremere....  :suicide:

I don't think so. In fact I changed nothing about him other than removing True Sight, so he could be stealth killed...

How strange! I don't know what that was then... :huh:


I have another question, this time about the Museum; the last security guard, behind the glass window in the room just outside the door leading to the corridor with the laser beams; is he supposed to ever move? Because he's staring straight into the corridor leading up to the door and he sees you the moment you try to pass, even if you're crouching. I waited and he didn't move at all. I guess those with Obfuscate can get past, those with Dominate can break the window and put him to sleep, but what about the others?

This happens only if you triggered the alarm before and is intended...

Ah, OK, that explains it, as a guard had spotted me earlier but I put him to sleep and escaped.  :vampsmile:

Is there reason why we can't sell the bubble gum you find on the pier to copper anymore


Evil is a point of view. God kills indiscriminitely, and so shall we, for no creatures under God are as we are, none so like Him... as ourselves. -Lestat, IWTV (1994)
