Is it possible to correct sound volume in dialog npc lines? Because i found one in VV that seems much lower volume than the ones before and after (this is in CQM, but i think it's a original actress line).

It's this one:
Code: [Select]
{ 551 }{ I don't think Hatter knows his collaborator is Kindred. You'll have to take David's screenplay... and somehow, you'll have to coax the name of his source out of him. Once you've found out who... [has a hard time saying it]kill... the traitor - [like a protective mother]but DO NOT touch David. }{ I don't think Hatter knows his collaborator is Kindred. You'll have to take David's screenplay... and somehow, you'll have to coax the name of his source out of him. Once you've found out who... [has a hard time saying it]kill... the traitor - [like a protective mother]but DO NOT touch David. }{ # }{ npc.SetDisposition("Neutral", 1) }{ G.Velvet_Hatter = 2 }{ }{
I wouldn't be surprised if this wasn't possible because the mp3 files are inside the packs or something, just thought i'd mention it.

The bertram bug i mentioned in the previous thread doesn't appear in the changelog. Did it miss the window?

BTW, i genuinely thought the 'Trip's Drugs' quest was a secret quest or something, since in my game, that only appears if you select the 'because you're tripping' option only appears after that 'They call me Trip' and that line never appears again (since it's a introduction). I'm not sure how i feel treating this as a 'bug'. CQM mod does add a hollywood vendor 'finance++' quest to match Larry and Trip's (all of these + the book, make it so finance only needs a 3 xp investment with a bit of patience - btw it would be nice to have a 4th dot for the chinatown vendor, that has no quests).

Anyway, going back to the point, i don't know how i feel, because it makes it too predictable for a first time player. They might think: 'so ok, larry and that dude on the red spot had free finance dots for quests', but they can easily miss it for Trip's, so it is left for replays. I feel this is a richer pattern than having all quests possible all the time.

There is also the precedence of Nines melee dot which takes quite a bit of luck to find (since he has a line countdown before he blows you off), though, admittedly, that isn't a quest. This is repeated on Larry's (you need to persuade/intimidate him to get the dot and it's easy to miss without the stats), and Beckett dots (i don't remember when these came into play in the original, but i remember being possible to lose them) and even in the Red Spot in CQM (you have to find the money wad trigger). All in all, i think it was the devs intent for these to slip through for replays, and that includes Trip's Quest. I know the first time i played i was thinking 'what are these boxes i can't sell for' (i'm *still* wondering if there was a planned quest for the medicine box on the final 'megahurtz web camera' on the safe, which i don't think has a use).

I fear that some day you're going to quit patching this game and there will be no one to post these threads. Hope you will join us on discord one day, Wesp  :chinscratch:

That sound file has already been improved in the UP over a year ago, the CQM is a bit outdated ;).

No, it's mentioned here as it isn't really important: Fixed blueblood, Bertram and Yukie dialogues...

That quest was added by me and I agree with you that some things should be able to overlook. Bloodlines is an old school game where not everything is presented using quest pointers as it is in most modern games!

Is there any way possible this isn't a Humanity violation, in Lily.dlg? Not to mention it could be a way for a player to RP being cruel, if they were into that sort of thing. Not my style of play but I added ; FindPlayer().HumanityAdd( -1 ) to mine, just for the principle of the scene.

Code: [Select]
{ 33 }{ No, I think I'll go buy a bag of you. Goodbye. }{ No, I think I'll go buy a bag of you. Goodbye. }{ 0 }{ }{ G.Lily_Refuse = 1 }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ I think I will purchase some of your liquids. Farewell. }

Edit: I've been having problems with getting rid of McFly in the scripts. Using #/commets it's worked, except that it seems to be effecting Heather's other dialogs such as her college. Below is the code I'm using, which should 'not' in anyway effect anything but McFly, afaik. So if anyone notices something, please point it out. This didn't used to be a problem, this code worked fine as it should. Something seems to have changed in the vamputil.py and I've got no clue would could be causing it. I'm not making any other changes in the file.
Code: [Select]
#    if(G.Story_State >= 30 and G.Heather_Haven and not IsDead("Heather") and G.Heather_Gone == 0 and G.Story_State < 75 and not G.Heather_Lure):
#        G.Mcfly_Present = 1
#        mcfly = Find("McFly")
#        if mcfly: mcfly.ScriptUnhide()
#    if(G.Mcfly_Leave or G.Mcfly_Feed or G.Mcfly_Dominated or G.Mcfly_Dementated or IsDead("McFly")):
#        mcfly = Find("McFly")
#        if mcfly: mcfly.Kill()

Could Pearl of Dubai bug ruin my game? I was playing as a Tremere so I probably used this many times without noticing the bug. I noticed full charisma bar when almost everything else was bugged xD
Reinstalling didn't help so I deleted save.


One question about Chunk: Does he always ask if we met somewhere before? I sneaked into gallery from parking side and when I met him for the first time in VT he apologized for his mental breakdown. I thought it was malk dialogue.

Does Clinic - Come into Our RoomRemix3 ever play for anyone else? I see it in the Santa Monica Music folder but never heard it.


Asd112 if you mean you Save game, then yes it could break your Save. There are still bugs in the game, which can't be fixed att and Wesp listed them in one of the patch files. I'm not familiar with the extent of the Pearl of Dubai bug. Yes, I think Chunk acts like you met him even if you didn't. I'm guessing the developers figured you would meet him before deciding to look for a back way in. Especially since he is a forced conversation if you get close enough.

As you can't exit without freeing her I don't think this matters to her in her state at that moment.

While adjusting the new patch to my needs I have found a few small things:
In the hostess dialog, line 71 you have G.Hostess_Nos == 0 in the actions field. This doesn't do harm and is probably intended to be = 0. Though I would leave it out.

In Yukie.dlg you have set G.Yukie_Shortcut in both lines, 423 and 472.

On the avamp_laptop you have made two functions have the same name "10/23/04". The first should be "10/22/04" I think.

And in the charcreatewizard, line 3385, in the text about autolevel button etc there is "the Cancel buttons..."

Was it intended to set the ammoinfomodel for the Colt Anaconda to the 38 model in the plus patch?

Does anyone recognize this language in the disciplinetgt_001.txt ? Trying to decide if this is a nerf to the Dementation disciplines.

Isn't a Humanity action based on the player's intention, not what the victim thinks/believes atm?

Yes, I can't figure out why that code keeps breaking Heather. It really shouldn't cause other dialogs to break.


Lmao, can't believe you // out No_Friends on Thaumaturgy, Blood Purge!   :rofl:
Code: [Select]
// "No_Friends" "1" // ???

If you are referring to the changes compared to the last patch, the dominate and dementation disciplines that kill humans now cause damage to supernaturals.

I tend to agree with Acleacius here.

Oh btw Malkav, thanks for the WinMerge suggestion, damn that's a life and sanity saver!  :rock:

It can only make the game easier and was fixed in the UP 9.9...

Yes, because he has no other starting line. I assume he saw you going by in SM...
