PATCHES / Re: True Patch Gold Edition -- DIRECT DOWNLOAD LINK
« Last post by Tessera on September 25, 2017, 05:13:40 PM »
1. You say that best way your patch is used, is on original 3CD USA version of Bloodlines. Can I use it on original, UK version? Does it cause any problems?

It should work okay. That is, assuming that there aren't any significant differences between the UK and USA versions. I have never tested the UK version, so it is impossible for me to give you a concrete answer to this question.


2. I am unable to reconcile two sisters. I have always succeeded before (with high persuasion), then I read that you've made it harder, but I am unsure how harder exactly?

No, I didn't make it harder to reconcile the Voerman sisters. If you read that somewhere, then it is false. The True Patch doesn't make anything easier or harder -- it simply fixes bugs.

You need to make sure that (1) your Persuasion skill is high enough and (2) you have not done anything to irritate either sister during your run through the first act. Keep in mind that sleeping with Jeanette will infuriate Therese... this is a common mistake that many players make.

Lastly, please add your correct age and gender to your Forum profile immediately. Failure to do so will result in account deletion.

Hey man, your patch is GREAT. I registered to show my support and for two quick questions...

1. You say that best way your patch is used, is on original 3CD USA version of Bloodlines. Can I use it on original, UK version? Does it cause any problems?

2. I am unable to reconcile two sisters. I have always succeeded before (with high persuasion), then I read that you've made it harder, but I am unsure how harder exactly?

Anyway, thanks very much for great work, and I think your patch is way better than "other" one. Cheers

They announced a reversal of that policy some months ago.  Doesn't mean they won't have the formula girls again, though.

No problems. I just find it to be rather humorous for Wesp to be calling the TPG "outdated."  ::)

PEOPLE -- THE ENTIRE FUCKING GAME IS OUTDATED. Bloodlines is a game that was created back in 2001-2004 and therefore, absolutely nothing related to VTMB could possibly be "up-to-date."

On my end, I simply wanted to fix as many of the bugs in VTMB as I possibly could. That goal was accomplished a little over 4 years ago.... hence there haven't been any updates to the TPG since then. The game hasn't changed either in all of these years, so the bottom line is that the TPG is as "up-to-date" as it possibly can be. There hasn't been any new content released for VTMB... hence there haven't been any new bugs to fix. VTMB is done... it's finished... and so is the True Patch.

The only reason Wesp keeps releasing one version after another of his "patch" is because (1) he constantly breaks things, which he then needs to go back and fix and (2) he keeps introducing more and more unnecessary and completely arbitrary mods into his "patch," no doubt in order to please the inferior (yes, they really are inferior) players who love the ways that Wesp has progressively dumbed down and bastardized the entire game. Teenagers always want something new and faster and easier... and that's the crowd that Wesp primarily panders to.

True Patch (TPG) players are playing the actual, real game of Bloodlines. The users of Wesp's garbage are playing some entirely different and inferior game -- which is much easier, stupider and more childish than the game which was intended by Troika.

And no, those are not just "opinions." When you deliberately make a game easier to play, and when you forcibly introduce idiotic content that the developers never intended, then you are indeed bastardizing and polluting that game. Pretending that you are instead "fixing it" is the absolute height of arrogance, Wesp.

But we knew that.  ;)

I didn't reply on this before so it's a bump but, the only reason I mentioned things was that I feel bad for new players being mislead.  I just wish I was a better communicator.

With all the talk of "old, tired blood" being the cause of so many afflictions, then providing that death or turning didn't happen, vampires would be doing folks a favor, right?

Most people with brains will boycott this greedy nonsense. It's outrageous.

My question is... I see lots of money being made by Bethesda. What I want to know is, how much are the modders being paid..? I'm guessing that the answer to that question is either "Nothing," or "A small one-time payment." If true, then Bethesda's business practice is not only greedy and exploitative, but it may also be illegal. Bethesda can call this anything that they want, in their lame effort to side-step any legal issues, but I can promise you that their deceptive "Oh no, these aren't actually paid mods" horseshit would never stand up in a court of law.

Anyway... and I'm speaking as a modder now... I would never have anything to do with this shit. No way -- no how. Did anybody pay me to fix all of the bugs in VTMB..? No -- nor did I expect to be paid. Did anybody pay me for my MELF Superskin mod for Oblivion..? No -- nor did I expect to be paid. How about my various other mods for Hellgate, WoW, EverQuest, Oblivion, Skyrim, VTMB, etc., etc., etc..? Did I get paid for any of those..? No -- nor did I expect to be paid. Player-made content should always be freely distributed.

My advice to everyone is: punish Bethesda... by boycotting their promotions, actively pirating their games and taking away their money. The best way to punish greedy people is by hitting them where it hurts them the most: in their wallets.

Commodus was similar, yes... but not crazy enough. Not unless you wanna believe the portrayal of Commodus (by Joaquin Phoenix) in the movie "Gladiator," which was far from being historically accurate.

I happen to believe that Trump is actually insane, though... hence my comparison of Trump to Caligula. Narcissism, megalomania, grandiosity, irrational behavior, etc. 


I will say that there -is- one comparison that could be made between Trump and Claudius. It seems clear that Claudius never wanted to be the emperor. Likewise, I don't think Trump ever actually wanted to become the president. I said as much a year ago, prior to the 2016 election.

I think Trump got into the race simply to self-promote and further aggrandize himself -- and he was no doubt rather shocked when he actually won. And now, Trump is stuck in a job that he doesn't want and is unqualified to do... which makes me suspect that half of his behavior since January has been an act. I think he actually WANTS to be impeached. Just a hunch.

Like the shock jock from NYC (Stern) who ran for mayor as a joke then withdrew when he was well in first.  It is certainly possible.  We as voters certainly don't have a good record for the most part in my lifetime and we still allow a political class to make a career out of politics with all the inherent corruption that brings.
