PostSubject: General Install Info for TFN & CE 1.5   Fri Apr 06, 2012 2:17 am

Hey everyone i'm starting this topic because some of us who aren't as tech savvy as the rest of you antedilluvians, and methusulas and whatnot have been having trouble installing The Final Nights and Camarilla Edition mods. I spent at least 4 hours searching on google and to make a long story short the answer was on this website, but the terms were so foreign to me that I was going in circles; So here I present to you, how to install The Final Nights and Camarilla WITHOUT having to waste 4 hours of your precious (un)lives and WITHOUT having to keep uninstalling Vampire:TM to enjoy these mods!! SPECIFICALLY for my direct2drive comrades as we seem to have been left out. Mad LOL just kidding I love your work TCI and you are truly pre-flood vampires worthy of worship.(by another man other than me) cheers

1. Copy your original Vampire:TM folder to your desktop, It should appear on your desktop as Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines Copy (this is so you can always play the original and also for when you want to install future mods.)

2. when the installer asks you where you would like to install the original file is under activision, just hilight the files name, Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines, copy and paste and click next on the installer.

3. When it is done installing go to the original file under activision, NOT THE ONE ON YOUR DESKTOP THAT SAYS COPY YOU SHOULDN"T HAVE EVEN MESSED WITH THAT AFTER YOU FOLLOWED STEP 1, and the file folder (VAMPIRE:TM BLOODLINES) should appear the same on the outside, but once you double click it and click the file that says vampire, WHICH IS INSIDE THE ORIGINAL VAMPIRE:TM BLOODLINES FOLDER, the game should run whichever mod you downloaded, provided you followed the above steps. The ORIGINAL VAMPIRE:TM BLOODLINES FOLDER is now your modded game, and the VAMPIRE:TM BLOODLINES FOLDER ON YOUR DESKTOP is now your original game without mods.

4. If you can't run the game because of memory problems (ENGINE ERROR) go to the file folder of whichever game your tring to run, right click on the vampire text with the ankh next to it (its the thing that looks like a cross, black and red) and click on properties. From properties click on compatibility and make sure all boxes are checked: also make sure your trying to run the game on whichever form of windows that you have (which can be changed in compatibility) click ok, and you should be ready to play, by going to the folder that holds the game your trying to play, and double clicking vampire in that folder.

5. Dont try and copy and paste shortcuts to get to the different versions of the game faster, it will cause an error, just move the modded folders to your desktop and leave the original in the activision folder for future mods.

6. If you followed every step you should not have to re-install/install the game every time you want to enjoy Bloodlines, Camarilla edition v.1.5 or The Final Nights, and direct2drive users like me just follow them directions and you'll be cookin with crisco! Very Happy

TL;DR version :

Install fresh copy in one directory

Install mod on one other directory

Open windows explorer

Merge mod files directory over fresh copy directory.

Malkav, do you think its to cluttered? I tried to make the directions so simple a childe of anyone could do it. and I suppose you may be able to put the whole thing on your desktop, but I didnt. The goal of this post was for people like me who don't really understand the technical terms i.e. Claudias' above post the only words I know are directory and merge lol. Im am not familiar whith this marx gon kafka however lol, but thanks for the constructive criticism.

P.S. You did a great job on the Camarilla edition.

Directory = folder

Technologically impaired ducks shoul stick to Steam and Sims, maybe...


Your explanation was far more complicated that the actual instructions (install game, install mod in the same place)

Yeah, it could get difficult at weekends, especially after some vodka with hash. Laughing

What could I do...? I am afraid I fall under Fluffy of Doom. If you don't get it, google TVTropes.
