This time, I actually went back and listened to his call again; and I still don't know what deal you're talking about.  We're talking about Wesp5's Unofficial Patch, right?  I've got the Plus patch loaded.  The only difference I can remember is that in the original conversation, Gary asks which piece of information you'd like first... the Giovanni Secret, or their location.  In this one, it's just a dialogue option for you to choose.   I am totally stumped.  One more thing to try...

Wait... I just listened to the vanilla sound files.  Are you talking about, "Are you interested in saving money on long distance calls?"  That wasn't used in the version I have, for some reason.  I think Wesp5 dug up some new sound files, or found a voice actor, or something.  Mine asks, "Do you have Prince Albert in the can?"

It's "Phil", actually, but it's hard to hear, so I'm going to give you half a point.
(Edit.)

1) YOU FAIL! Direct Quote from the Vandal.dlg file
"Why'd you have to go and let that bitch out? There's one less Bill in the world now."

Actually, I think you're both right... or wrong, depending on whether you're a 'glass is half full' kind of person.   :smile:   The vanilla version used to say 'Phil' in the sound file.  But now, there's a funny hiccup in the audio, and he says 'Bill'.  The text was obviously changed to match the audio.

Edit. -- I remember noticing that when it changed, a long time back.  Thought it was strange, but didn't consider it important.

Edit. 2 -- Since this is the second time this has happened, I think we need to ask: What mod/patch is Rick Gentle going by?  I usually give answers based on the Unofficial Patch.  I figure that's the 'New Vanilla'.   :smile:

All of my questions reference the vanilla game, because not everybody has the Unofficial Patch installed (yet). I don't currently have it installed myself, because I don't want to have to worry about inter-mod/patch conflict. I've been playing the vanilla game/official 1.2 patch for the past six years. It's only this past year or so I started downloading anything else.

Which brings us to the question... which frakking version of the game has _username been playing?   :justabite:
I think we'd just better get the answer at this point. Three pages and no-one has a clue what you're talking about, _username.

†L† Then I am screwed, I've never played the vanilla, and only the unofficial patch once. Now as a matter of course right after vanilla install I install compmod, which has wesp patch 5.something. When I play without compmod it feels like somethings missing...
Be it though science, occult, or becoming a living ghost, if one can grasp immortality, I'll find out before the next life. Fuck reincarnation.

Ooooohhhh... Do you mean the captain or first mate or whatever onboard the ship? Or an officer mentioned on the news story that covered the Dane massacre?
You're on the right track.

Yeah, that clears it right up.  Thanks for that.   :facepalm:

In Bloodlines, pictured on the Ankaran Sarcophagus is an ancient vampire-like goddess. What was her name?

And the bonus: What archeological tool is Beckett missing? (He has to look into his bag for it.)

Llama stew - a Malkavian delicacy.  (Or Lamastu if you're not Malkavian.)

He's missing a fine-toothed comb... and LaCroix doesn't seem to find any humor in this.

Yeah, this one dragged on a bit long.  Trying to find that balance between making them challenging, but I worded this one in a way that made it a little tough.



The next one will be less cryptic.

Good Lord.  Even with the answer, your original question is obscure.

I've never read the Captain's Log.  Does it take a separate password, or will 'Lighthouse' serve for that too?

I think it has a different password, never checked the log because the required hacking level was too high for me.

That's what I thought.  I'll still never see it in the game -- I'm not going to bump my Hacking feat to 8 or 9 just for that little tidbit of an easter egg.
