The german install breaks CE?
Don't have a clue why, because there is just a difference in the language strings/menues.
The german version is a multi3, so there shouldn't break anything (even I used the english install).
Seems like have to go through the files of the multi3 vanilla and the CE to compare them. Maybe there some sort of OpCode in a libary or something wich breaks the whole stuff.
(not so (d'oh!)) Little Edit:
Just had a look into some files and seem like the german strings just got overwritten. So nothing unfixable for now. I'll try replacing them with the german vanilla files later, to check out how the game will handle it
Checked out the main menu quickly. It's pretty easy to fix at all.
I'll update my german vanilla VTMB with the unoffical german patch 6.6 (by Voerman) later. This way I can keep the CE 1.2 and just need to repack the needed files. It's mostly the "DLG" folder and some smaller files.
Still dunno why it would break the game - maybe a different version of the engine.dll and vampire.dll?
Those are corefiles wich are also included in CE. Seems like I have to mess around with them, or I'll just play the kiddo and ignore those file, by changing the dialogcallup
Only thing I haven't found by now are the backgrounds of the loading screen.
Did you guy included custom made ones or are they still vanilla?
Vanilla would be, of course, more easy to handle
Only thing wich I need to translate by hand seems to be the vdata files. But there aren't that much files. Should take a day/night or something (if i am a slowass) - so quite fast
There is just one question left:
In the german version some of the dialogues are sort of "cut", like the "having sex stuff". I could easily restore that. But the question is, if you want that
It's pretty simple and just funstuff at all. I also just know a few people who would want that just for the laugh
Checked it out now. Everything is german, except of the main menu and the cinematics (like the lacroix monologue at the beginning).
Maybe I missed something or haven't checked everything correctly. Also the vdata is still untouched.
- German VTMB vanilla install
- unoffical german patch 6.6+
- partial CE 1.2 (except of dlg, vdata (current work), cfgs and dlls)
No crashes by now and seems to work fine (as i could see).
Current known issues:
- Mainmenu still english
- Cinematics (subtitles) still english
- vdata (partial english - not everything needed)
Call me blind, but I am unable to locate the mainmenu nor the cinematics (subtitles of course).
