Everything comes down to this: Jack orchestrated the entire gig, others only added the flavor to the mystical context of it, mentioning the following: "bad blood in the air", "vamps going batshit" and the similar ominous claims.

Not really, it was in fact the Cabbie who planned all of it, Jack only helped because he loves chaos. When the Cabbie comes up to where Jack is sitting with the mummy in the ending he says: "Hey, it happened just like you said. [Jack laughs]They never even knew what hit 'em. Threw that sarcophagus out there and they just tore each other up tryin' to get to it."

However, as I played, I presumed that as the father of all kindred he is able to "mask" his presence.

That is a reasonable explanation for why the Cabbie always looks the same. Troika could easily have used another model for a normal cabbie, but they didn't. Also playing the taxi driver all along, Caine would always be close to the action :)!

I have a weird problem.

I would guess you have one of the third person view camera moving keys bound to something else or the laptop doubles these keys. I think default is for them to be the numpad keys on a full keyboard...

Thanks. I will check it out as soon as I finish my work. ;)

I had this glitch years ago, I even completed the game like this roleplaying it as ''hungry'' mage vampire lol (Tremere male too), surprised to see it's still a thing after so many years.

I always found it interesting that Troika chose the Mesopotamian deity Lamastu as the "protagonist" of the design. A number of deities "traveled" from one culture to another, changing names / characteristics and their appearance. However, the peculiar notion is that Lilith managed to keep most of the characteristics through all of these transitions. Familiar:

We are maybe blowing this out of proportion, but it's good to have a heated discussion. :)

Everything comes down to this: Jack orchestrated the entire gig, others only added the flavor to the mystical context of it, mentioning the following: "bad blood in the air", "vamps going batshit" and the similar ominous claims. I mean, the Anarch/solo ending shows it perfectly: an ancient sarcophagus filled with C4 packages is pretty much a down-to-earth solution to ending the rule of the Cam and a perfect conduit for conflict instigation. Knowing the character of Jack, this option is beyond viable.

As for the cabbie - only the last version is Cain. However, as I played, I presumed that as the father of all kindred he is able to "mask" his presence. After all, WoD is a place where deception and falsehood are common, plus he is the 1st generation vampire so his power is, you know, gigantic and OP. To pull an illusionist stunt like that, for a kindred of his caliber, is easy as breathing. He is the son of Adam and in a way a "student" of Lilith from whom he learned how to use magic, transforming them into vamp disciplines.

I have a weird problem.
In my last playthrough on my old pc, everything went perfectly fine (ran with the UP 9.8) and finished the game without a glitch. However, on my new laptop, I have a quirky situation:
Whenever I switch from first person view to the third (or if dialogue does that for me) my character "drops out of axis", or in 3rd person view he walks turned to the side (strafes) or with his back turned in front (moonwalk). I tested it with a Toreador and a Ventrue - happens both ways.
The only way I managed to pass the tutorial is to save the game, then exit and enter right again in and load. Only then everything is fine. I don't mind repeating this process, but during the tutorial I had to do it three times.
What I found out is that it happens around the room where Jack instructs you on the masquerade and where you acquire the chop shop key. First time it was on the staircase behind the exit door; the second happened right after the cutscene where the sheriff kills off the Sabbat and the third was when I locked picked the door below the grate in the tutorial.
Once again, it is not a game-breaking bug, but if someone has any idea why it happens, I will be grateful for the assistance. ;)

P.S.
On my old pc was the original CD version plus all the UPs up to 9.8.
On my new laptop is the GOG version plus the UP 9.8.

EDIT: The "switch" happens periodically, after five or six changes of the perspective.

Now after completing some more Hollywood quests, including Kings Way but not the rest of the warrens, I returned to the cemetery and Romero's shack is closed.

Can you noclip in to see if he is there or missing as well?

On VV's quest I emptied the ATM, then picked the lock to the backstage room and Kerry was already standing there even though I hadn't yet shutdown the peepshow.

Don't they do regular breaks without all patrons gone?

Someone on the GOG boards has reported this as well, unless you are the same, but I have no idea...

Steam overlay only works when you run aor using Vanilla EXE option. It wont detect the vampire_aor.exe file unless you add that shortcut as a non-steam game.

What is the "vanilla exe option"? And how could I change the files so that the vampire_aor.exe becomes the new "vampire.exe" and thus Steam is fooled to think it is the original launcher? I tried just renaming it, but the game opened vanilla, I imagine that there ought be some more twisting around than simply renaming the launcher.
