Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Thanks for this, Wesp! <3

I wonder, though -- what do you mean by "basic sheet music" in the installer?

This means the final dialogue with Andrei in which you get the chance to join the Sabbat will happen in the new Hallowbrook atrium now and not in the first stairway of the interior Hallowbrook level.

The option with the sheet music means that it will be possible to turn it back on. While I decided to remove it because it clashes with ingame music on several case, some poeple didn't mind that.

Thanks for moving the controversial crying girl!

Can't wait to see the new changes, patches scrolls is being slow again though.

Hey Wesp, thanks for all your awesome work!  But I'm having a problem with 8.9:  After I patched, when attempting to launch the game from steam, I receive the error "Problem starting up Steam" and it opens the steam store in my browser.  When I try to launch from the .exe in the root folder, I get the same error.  (previously it was failing to find steam, but I moved the steam.dll into it and it went away)

Things I've done:
Re-installed Bloodlines and 8.9
Restarted Steam
Restarted my computer
Tried to run the game in XP compatibility mode
Placed Steam.dll in same folder as .exe
Running game with Steam shutdown (same error)

Ran the patch but I can't De-select Basic or Plus, so I have no idea what I have extracted in my BUP folder.

What is Sheet Music, I don't recall Sheet Music in the game, or is that an EU name for something different here in the US?

I don't know which Warform I should get, looks like Basic version is a new select, so default is a new version, I don't think, I've seen either?


Thanks.

Been using these patches for years and I've never even made an attempt to say thank you. Looks amazing as usual man, look forward to giving it a go on my next play through.

Strange! Basic should be fixed but you should be able to deselect plus.

That's the music playing when you are on the character sheet. I turned that off in the plus version of the patch.

The basic warform is the strange man-bat. The normal plus warform is the wolf-man form, which is closer to the wolf Troika wanted.

Are you running both Steam and Bloodlines as administartor? Have you turned Automatic Updates and Steam Community off?

Thanks for replying!  I tried both of those fixes and neither worked unfortunately.  Get this: I completely uninstalled everything and deleted the Bloodlines folder so I could re-download and try to launch it vanilla...  Once I try to launch it, I get the exact same error!

So here is exactly how my last 24hrs went.  After not playing VTMB in forever, I go and download patch 8.8 last night.  I then play successfully for a few hours.  I go to sleep.  Wake the next day and notice patch 8.9!  I install it and have all checkboxes selected except sheet music.  Then I try to play...only to be met with "Application Error: Problem starting up Steam."

Thus, I'm truly wondering if patch 8.9 changed something deep, maybe registry (?), that would not normally get uninstalled and would potentially affect even vanilla VTMB.  I've been all over the internet and the only "fix" for other games with a similar problem is to add your steam.dll to folder with the .exe...which sadly changes nothing.

Quite a weird problem...

Yeah, it seems this is a Steam problem and not connected to the patch. People have similar issues with other game too. Best complain on the Steam boards until someone higher up notices it...

Nice work with the new patch Wesp! I see you're putting the new Hammer version into good use. :) I'm yet to try the patch out.

Get this: I completely uninstalled everything and deleted the Bloodlines folder so I could re-download and try to launch it vanilla...  Once I try to launch it, I get the exact same error!

Do you have any compatibility settings turned on for either Steam.exe or Vampire.exe? If you do you need to turn them off.
