Bloodlines Modding / Re: The Undisciplined Caitiff Mod Released
« Last post by Norrwin on Today at 03:45:15 PM »
Would you be interested in getting my InnoSetup script that I use for the UP to modify for your mod? Because I don't think I ever had similar problems...

Thanks! for sure if I ever intend to advertise the mod to players outside PlanetVampire I would need something like Inno and that would probably be a big help. For now I'm not planning to do that.

The mod was designed for an audience like here at PV in mind, people who have probably been VTMB fans for a long while and probably know something about VTM outside the game. As I said in the article:
Quote
The method for installing this mod was chosen to be as flexible as possible. Anyone wishing to examine the installer code can easily do so with a simple text editor...

It can be easily modified, or it can be ignored entirely and installed manually, it can even easily be installed without ModLoader support in the old way directly into the Vampire directory... although I don't know why anyone would want to do that... but they could.


Edit: I believe the CMD file problems with administrative access have been solved and the new installer has significantly improved error detection and reporting as well.

This still is stupid. Arthur tells the player in Bloodlines gladly about all kinds of stuff regarding bail bonding and bounty hunting and never mentioned that this is a family job and they are a franchise? Compare that to e.g. Chunk mentioning his brothers because Troika knew they wanted to use one. This is stupid fan-fiction retconning in my eyes...

From Page 102 of the V5 Camarilla Book:

"Nick Kilpatrick Neonate of the 12th Generation.
He worked as a bail bondsman in the family business before being Embraced in 1994 by his brother Arthur (now missing).
Kilpatrick serves as Sheriff of Cincinnati, guarding the city against all manner of chaos and foul play.
He loves his job and it knwon to be eager to punish any from of transgression, not always waiting for the Prince to pass judgement before doing. An adept criminal himself, despite his "day job" as Sheriff of the court, he still does occasionally use his safe-cracking skills to pop open a vault.

Prone to bouts of depression, he can sometimes be suicidal and deeply ashamed of his addicition of feeding off of crack addicts and other drug users in order to get his fix.
His large family is his main weakness. He tries to hide them as best he can, but Kilpatrick Bail Bond is a  well known company, and on one occasion his grandmother was kidnapped by an Anarch gang.
While he didn´t recover his nana alive, the gang completly disappered without a trace.

I don´t know but is pretty vague. Of course its strange to have two Arthur Kilpatrick with the same company but its not impossible. Maybe the wiki folks shouldn´t state this as fact.

I needed an installer and it either works or it doesn't, every part of the installer was broken because of the way Windows handles CMD level administrative access, not just moving and renaming the pack file.

According to the V5 Camarilla book the Bloodlines 1 Arthur Kilpatrick isn´t the real Arthur Kilpatrick, just a human for who knows what reasons to pretend to be Arthur Kilpatrick.
Which is completely ridiculous! Does Arthur Kilpatrick look as if he would care enough about anything to even think about doing this? Certainly not. This is as bad as that islamic gay women-defender Anarch shown in the V5 source book, and probably another reason why a lot of people prefer V20!
At least I got Skelter's clan removed from the Wiki ;).

Classic World of Darkness / Arthur Kilpatrick Vampire?
« Last post by Talyn82 on Today at 03:48:14 AM »
In the Favorite NPC thread in the Bloodlines General Discussion section.  A member posted a message saying that they read on the White Wolf Wiki page, that the Arthur Kilpatrick we meet in Bloodlines is not the actual person, and that the actual Arthur Kilpatrick is a vampire.


Is this true and apart of WoD canon?  Or was it just some random VTM fan who edited the entry?


Here's the link:  https://whitewolf.fandom.com/wiki/Arthur_Kilpatrick

Wouldn't all this cmd stuff not have been necessary if you didn't decide to pack files into a vpk archive that must go into the vampire folder, but would have kept everything fine and orderly in your mod folder as all other mods do?

In short no.

I needed an installer and it either works or it doesn't, every part of the installer was broken because of the way Windows handles CMD level administrative access, not just moving and renaming the pack file. I wrote an Article on the mod's Nexus page that comments on why I wanted to use the CMD file installer format.

The need for administrative access is usually predicated on the root folder, in this instance C:\Program Files (x86)\... not on the Vampire directory.

Why I choose to pack the files is a LONG story with it's beginning dating back to 2014 and my first Skyrim mod, but I don't think it is appropriate here.

I agree is the thing about Arthur being a Vampire apart of the VTM lore?  Or was it some random VTM fan that wrote in the entry?


I hope that entry is more than unreliable  :58_83:  !
