You'll find them marked by [-:] for "basic" and [ :] for "plus" changes. Performance =============== Another issue with Bloodlines is performance, if your PC-specs are low, you'll probably encounter poor performance and long load times.
This is mainly because the game's code wasn't tweaked enough and because the game due to its RPG element and huge amount of dialogues and scripts needs a lot of memory. To do this, right-click on the game shortcut and choose properties. To make the game manage the memory better you can add the additional command: [ -heapsize xxxxxx] to your game shortcut.
=========== The Guide =========== There are some very good guides for this game out there, in fact Jay Darco's and vampireheph's guides at Game FAQ's helped me a lot with my first playthrough, but I felt that a guide that had almost everything about the game was missing.
This guide will also follow the chronological order of events to make navigation through the guide (and the game) easier.If this happens reload from a previous save and try again, hopefully it will work.Other solutions are staying on the left side of the street or using the sewers to travel, which will circumvent the encounter.The unofficial patch includes two versions, the "basic" version that only contains bug fixes and the "plus" version that restores some extra stuff and makes certain tweaks and gameplay changes.I consider the basic version to be essential for every installation. My opinion is that it definitely makes the game better, but maybe you should leave the "plus" version for a second playthrough. The game manages to truly make you feel like a vampire roaming the nights of Los Angeles. Technical issues aside, this game is one of the best RPG's I've played and that's mainly because of the incredible atmosphere and excellent plot.Thankfully an unofficial patch has been released that solves almost all of them.It was started by Dan Upright in its early stages, but the bulk of the work has been done by Wesp5, who still continues to update it. ABOUT ========== The Game ========== Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines is an RPG with action and adventure elements that came out in 2004.I'm writing this guide because I really love this game and because I also want to practice my English, it's not my native language so please excuse any mistakes. You can get official patch 1.2 from: Unofficial Patch: ----------------- Even after the official patch the game still has a lot of bugs.
