What happened to Dema?
I just finished the Boris quest. After killing the russians there was no Dema in front of Boris' door.
And therefore I could just waltz in, drain Boris without comment or a fight and walk out again.

Dema disappears if you start to kill the Russians. He do not disappear if you stealth kill some of them but the moment you are spotted killing any of them Dema run away of fear. This is not random and is present in UP+ 10.0 too.
Is that original Troika or created by the patch?

I could not say, I didn't play VTMB v. 1.2 for a long time but I can confirm it for UP+ 10.0. May be Wesp could say more.

The first is statement from Mercurio 'The word came down that there's a party in Chinatown and you're bringin' the fireworks. New Year's is comin' early.'

This has nothing to do with "New Year", only with you bringing the fireworks :).

May be yes, may be no.

So the important thing here is that a ghoul receives blood once a month and the player feeds Heather exactly two times after saves her life.

But I would guess you could feed your ghoul as often as you like, only the minimum rate would be once a month. And LaCroix plays it cheap ;).

The player also plays it cheap. He feeds Heather only when asked means she burned up the blood and don't feel it in her veins.

All in all the game events take a little more than 2 months and end few or several days before New Year by my calculations.

No. It certainly ends on Halloween, the newspaper proves it. Which starting with the Kathayan email dates makes the game play in about a week!

The Cathayan emails only give approximate dates from the beginning of the story and could not be a measurement about the end. I would not take the newspaper as some absolute prove. And something interesting from the real world:

But later I came across references to him as "Ingvar Johansen" in the vanilla game.
Turn's out you're right. I found a reference to it in the original dialog files. When Beckett is talking to the PC in Venture Towers, he mentions him as Dr Ingvar Johansen, even though the Museum emails mention him as Dr Anders Johansen. Which was all rectified with the UP. Very strange indeed.

What's weird about that is the account was registered this past January, but the bot only started doing it now...
Has the server had issues with accounts being hacked, or even the server itself? I get the feeling this could be what's happening here. I mean I don't know whether or not the accounts these messages are coming from have actually even been active on here otherwise.

I suspect there have been many bots over time, it's just the tactics have changed. I have it set that nobody can post links in forum posts until after 1 or 3 posts without links. When I've disabled that, we've immediately had forum spam. I suspect these bots that are registered with 0 posts are now targeting profiles, where there is no such setting, like I have for the main forums. Most of the accounts that I've banned recently were obvious bots, I can tell from their own profiles ect. I'm hoping the extra registration question will stop the flow registering for a while.

Bloodlines Games General Discussion / Ingvar
« Last post by IanW on October 23, 2018, 09:37:04 PM »
I've long known that in the Plus version of the patch, Dr. Johansen is called "Anders Johansen." I initially assumed that this is because he was only given a last name, so somewhere along the line "Anders" was made up as a first name.

But later I came across references to him as "Ingvar Johansen" in the vanilla game. I don't often play vanilla, so my knowledge of non-Plus content isn't as complete as it may be with some of you. A quick look through the files doesn't turn up any obvious references to "Ingvar," so I'm not sure where it comes from.

So I turn to the experts: where does Ingvar come from? Is there a reference I'm missing? (And if he was already called Ingvar, where did Anders come from?)

Ich denke, dass eine Glock 19 auch eine angemessene Waffe für Tseng wäre. Glock sind in den USA die Behördenwaffen schlechthin und unheimlich stark verbreitet. Sie sind aufgrund ihrer Polymerkonstruktion kostengünstig, aber dennoch sehr zuverlässig (eine der wenigen Pistolen die unter Wasser schießen kann) und unglaublich einfach zu warten.
Das bestreite ich nicht, aber die Glock 19 wird für meinen Geschmack eh schon zu viel in Bloodlines benutzt.
Persönlich würde ich mehr eine Colt Anaconda für Tseng bevorzugen, aber ich könnte mich auch mit einer Glock 19 anfreunden,
solange der absurde 38er Revolver bei Tseng ausgetauscht wird.

Just a question which is not directly related to version 10.1: Is the Humanity loss is intended when you kill the zombies summoned by Bruno?

No, and this has already been fixed in 10.1 RC3!
