We created this thread in an attempt to reduce the number of frequently asked questions in bug reports. Please read this page and if your issue is not listed then feel free to post a bug report. (We will be constantly adding to the list as we find more bugs).
Question 1. I can’t use some of my higher level disciplines because they don’t appear on the mouse wheel.
Answer: This is the number one question we get at TCI so let me explain once and for all. When we changed the bloodcost of the disciplines it broke the mouse wheel functionality. This is an issue that cannot be fixed because of engine limitations. An easy way around this is to setup the higher level disciplines through the hotkey menu (default button: K). You can assign these disciplines to number keys 0-9 and choose them that way.
Question 2. I can’t seem to learn computer skills from Bertram after retrieving his CD.
Answer: This was fixed in TFN 1.1.
Question 3. I don't have access to all of the PC models, some of the genders are missing.
Answer: We didn't have enough time to reskin all of the genders before releasing TFN 1.0. These missing characters will be included as subsequent patches are released.
Question 4. I can't find the histories for my PC during character creation. Is this a bug?
Answer: No. Just like the missing player genders, we did not have time to create new histories for the characters. The only histories for TFN 1.0 are the clan weakness selection for the Assamite clan. Brand new histories are being created and will be included in TFN 1.1 in the form of stat shufflers.
Question 5. Whenever activating Obfuscate, instead of saying "Obfuscate (2)", it says "Serpentis Max 0". Does the same during deactivation.
Answer: This is because the Followers of Set clan cannot use aggressive Serpentis disciplines while Obfuscated. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to eliminate this text at the top left of the window when other clans use Obfsucate. This is a programming limitation but does not effect gameplay in any way.
Question 6. Whenever I start the Mafia quest in downtown, Akeem the book dealer disappears.
Answer: This is because Akeem knows what's about to go down so he leaves the area to go hunt for awhile. Once things get resolved between Venus and the Russian mob boss, Akeem will return.
Question 7. When I use Serpentis 3: Apep's Semblance, my claws don't automatically come out.
Answer: This will be fixed in TFN 1.2!
Question 8. When I start the game, the opening videos are blank yet I can still hear it. This worked fine on Windows XP but is broken for Windows 7.
Answer: Right click on your Vampire - Bloodlines desktop icon and open properties. Click on the "compatibility" tab and check mark "Disable Visual Themes" and "Disable Desktop Composition".
