Oh snap! I'm glad to see this is out now. I'm in the middle of playing Assassin's Creed II, but I think I'm going to drop that for a while and play Bloodlines instead. ACII is pretty decent and I've never played it before this, but it ain't Bloodlines, that's for damn sure.

Btw, I saw you mentioned removing the "new Mitnick quest" from the basic patch. I missed a couple of versions...is there a new Mitnick quest in the Plus Patch?

Do I have to start a new game for these changes to take effect? I'm currently using UOP 7.0 and Clan Quest 2.0.

It's always advised to begin a new game. All sorts of weird shit happens when you load an old save. I did it when a new version came out once, and civilians that I killed on the streets of Hollywood burned to ashes as if they were vampires, while rats could be targeted with powers like Trance. You reeeeally don't want to use a save from a different version unless you don't mind not being able to finish the game or certain quests and having bizarre glitches.

Basically there was a bug where an email from Mitnick was in your inbox from the start of the game when it wasn't supposed to be there for two reasons: 1. Because you haven't even gotten close to meeting Mitnick yet and 2. It isn't intended to be in the basic version, it somehow leaked over from the Plus version as Wesp told me back in my thread concerning this problem on the old planetvampire.

Yeah. I'm with DP on this one. When you install any sort of patch or mod or anything like that (models and skins are okay), you should ALWAYS make a new character.

The file I downloaded (the patch) seems to be unknown to my computer. Am I missing a software that can read it?

You should have gotten a file called vtmbup71.exe, if that's not what it's called then I'm afraid you have the wrong file my friend. If it IS called vtmbup71.exe, consider rebooting or deleting and downloading the file again. It's an executable, so you should simply double-click it and an installer will appear.

There is a small new Mitnick email quest in the plus patch to get him a library card in exchange for an occult item.

The best glitch I ever had was in the down town bar: In an endless loop, Nines was been draged with an terryfied face through the wall in to the toilett.

Recently dug out my copy of VTMB but UP7.1 was taking a while to come out and I got impatient so I played it with just the official 1.2 patch. Does 7.1 come with a full changelog? I've taken a brief look at the other mods but I don't really quite fancy the sound of them (yet). I really enjoyed the game and I suppose I'm even willing to begin another replay immediately even though I just completed it, but it depends on what 7.1 does.

I loved the sneak/hacky aspect, most of my kills were stealthy ones or I tranced the enemy then drained them. Didn't really enjoy the long sewer run from the mansion to the Nosferatu as the heavy combat didn't help the tedium of having to crawl through seeminglessly endless drainpipes (hated the reservoir section particularly). Played a Tremere btw to check out the chantry haven - got it far too late in the game and was generally disappointed in the lack of interaction with Max, the primogen. I dunno whether any other players checked back with most major NPCs as often as I did: only Jack seemed to upgrade his dialog at a decent pace with all the goings-on. Most of the others quickly fell into a small stock of dialog once their quests were over.

Yes, in fact two are in the patch readme :). One is sorted by version changes and one sorted by themes and locations.

Didn't you check out Jack's in-game Twitter page on V-Net? He constantly updates his profile and upgrades his opinion about your progress so far.

@Wesp
Congratulations are in order.

nope, just says vtmbup71. No exe or anything. I downloaded it properly.

@MalkyJeff This came up the other day in the PV chat and it had to do with the browser the person was using, I think it was IE. He downloaded Opera, tried again and it worked. Should work with Firefox too, IE is a bitch. :suicide:
