Does anyone here know if the patches have to be installed to the Steam version? Are the popular patches compatible with the Steam version?


If you love something let it go. If it doesn't return, hunt it down and kill it.

I didn't know there was patches. Is there one that stops it being hard as fuck?

Steam version comes pre patched. There is a fan made 1.2 patch, but it should NEVER be used. We host it for archival purposes, but it was intended to hlp multiplayer back in the day, but in reality it will mess the game up and even make it unplayable in single player. If you want improved AI and more, including the option of playing the single player campaign in multiplayer co-op, I suggest Age of Redemption. http://e-mods.net/modules/mods/about_aor.php

I consider it more of a question whether it has a necessity for that (i.e. Bloodlines is almost obligatory Wesp's patch). So with that in mind, should I get it?

Actually, I'd highly recommend playing vanilla first. Then do another play through with AoR to appreciate the improvements. Redemption with no extra patches runs and plays just fine, unless your computer get ye old "crash to vienna" bug, which I haven't heard of happening in a while.

Is the AoR patch just a exe file that you download and execute or is it more complicated than that to install?

Thought the readme was included into the archive.
Spoiler for Hiden:
INSTALLATION

**Requires Vampire The Masquerade - Redemption v1.1 Patch**
**GOG.COM VERSION IS ALREADY PATCHED**
**STEAM VERSION IS ALREADY PATCHED**
**DO NOT USE VERSION 1.2 UNOFFICIAL PATCH**

Run the msi file to install the mod. Be sure the mod installs into your main
Vampire The Masquerade - Redemption game folder. The installer only works with
Windows 2000 or above operating systems. If you are still using Windows 98...

Please stop using Windows 98. Thank you.

The install directory inputted into the install application is assumed and is
NOT CORRECT FOR GOG USERS. Be sure to use the Browse function of the app to find the
correct location of your Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption game install.

WARNING: WINDOWS 8.X USERS MAY ENCOUNTER AN ERROR ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL

Windows 8 users will have to run the MSI file "As Administrator". But the option
might be missing on newer releases of Windows 8. Please copy this link into your browser

http://sys-solutions.co.uk/installer-error-2503-and-2502-in-windows-8/

As the above link contains a workaround for the "Run As Administrator" issue.
You may also have to run the uninstall as admin as well.

****Do not run the Vampire_aor.exe executable****

Run the shortcut that has been created in your start>programs>AoR Mod location after installation.
The AoR application runs the mod. The application requires that you have:

.NET FRAMEWORK 4.6.1 INSTALLED.
RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR
CORRECT INSTALL LOCATION WHERE YOU VTMR GAME IS INSTALLED

If this application is giving you trouble, you do have workaround options. The mod can be ran through 2
other shortcuts that run the mod directly [through vanilla exe and aor exe]. Be sure to run the shortcuts because
these shortcuts have command line values that tell the VTMR game to run the aor mod. If you wish to configure the mod
without the config application, you'll need to do this manually. There is a shortcut to the config.txt file located
in the same shortcut menu everything else installs into. You can edit this config.txt using standard Notepad.
I didn't know there was patches. Is there one that stops it being hard as fuck?
The one that fixes the hands of the person who coded the fvcking AI?
