This is an unofficial patch for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
by Troika Games. It's a cumulative patch containing all the previous
releases and works with retail and downloadable versions of any kind
as the Troika Games official patch 1.2 is included. It runs out of a
subfolder so other mods can be run in parallel but applying it to an
international version will revert all localizations back to English!

The default Basic Patch fixes multiple bugs and restores only little
content to stay close to the original. The Plus Patch (+) adds minor
tweaks and lots of content, the Patch Extras include a SDK and more!
Patched loader, client, engine, shaderapidx9, and vampire dlls bring
widescreen support and fix weapon-stats, coronas-gone, refresh-rate,
lights-through-walls, floats-for-females and more-than-2GB-RAM bugs.

To install the patch choose the Bloodlines directory as destination,
select wanted features, install and then start the game from the new
desktop or start menu links. Thanks to Jordan Russel for Inno Setup!
It's important to start a new game after patching, old saves will be
moved to save/incompatible! To uninstall, remove the patch links and
patch directory. Changelogs, known issues and more are listed below.

On issues in Windows install the patch as administrator or use it in
XP compatibility mode. On problems with Steam run Steam and the game
as administrator and copy steam.dll to the game folder, if you get a
"failed to find Steam" error. To start it from the Steam library add
-game Unofficial_Patch to launch options! Disable auto-updating both
in Steam and Galaxy. On issues in Linux run the loader-linux script.

Special thanks to burgermeister for the Public Library, EntenSchreck
for the Hallowbrook Atrium, the Chateau Hotel outside and drafts for
Malkavian Maze, Warrens Shortcut and Museum Entrance! To Atrblizzard
for opening the pier and Psycho-A and duchU for optimizing many maps
too. The maps were edited and compiled using the Unofficial SDK from
Psycho-A and Fire64 and then finished and filled with life by Wesp5.

Special thanks also to the people who modified the dlls of the game,
to Jor and Wabbite who fixed the 2 GB memory bug in shaderapidx9.dll
and Frank7777 who added the refresh-rate fix. To in9 who fixed stats
in client.dll, SomeCommentDoe, Drog Black Tooth and c6 who corrected
lights-through-wall, LOD and save speed in engine.dll, and Behar and
Psycho-A who merged most in loader.dll and added -game installation!

The patch is provided "as is" and any warranties are disclaimed. The
free redistribution of the unchanged patch is permitted but it's not
allowed to use it as a base for derivative works without permission!
Special thanks go to Dan Upright for starting the unofficial patches
and doing the versions up to 1.2, his changelogs are included below.
Many thanks also to the following people who contributed much to it!
