PostSubject: I have no valid reply   Sat Jul 28, 2012 11:12 am


I have been playing CE1-6 and found two I have no valid reply bugs.

The first one is having got all the items asked for by Bertram and giving them to him.

When talking about the reward. I got. I have no valid reply asnwer, but was still able to carry on further in the game.

The second one is more serious as it kills the game.

After doing the Fu Syndicate quest and freeing Barbus and answering the pay phone. The I got no valid reply line came up.

This means I could not get the Giovanni information so I could not proceed any further.

Can you be a bit more precise as to where exactly you got the problems? Also, are you playing a Nossie or another clan?

I had a look into the files, but didin't find a hint as to what might cause it. Probably a wrong line link, but that kind of thing is near impossible to find, if you don't know where to look.

OK I am playing as a Venture male.
. The first took place at Bertram’s in Santa Monica. Just gave him the items he wanted CD picture and Enigma machine.
He says. What do you need.
You. 1.I have the things you asked for
Him. 1.Nice work, Fledgling
You. 1. Thanks, now lets talk about my compensation,
Him. 1. Hmmmm
1. I have no valid reply.
The quest log says you have a reward.

The next one is in Chinatown. After doing the Fu Syndicate quest and freeing Barbus. Wait for the pay phone to ring. Go over to to it. Answer it..
1. Hello
The reply is
1. I have no valid reply.
Hope this is a bit clearer.

Hm, for the Bertram problem, it seems you have all 5 abilities he can teach at 3 or more (computers, security, stealth, investigation, finance). I didin't expect that to happen. So I'll have to add a line asking for $$$.

For the phone call, seems there are problems with the starting conditions. I have to make some more tests there.

Yep, I messed that one up. But it's easy to fix. Open -bloodlines\vampire\dlg\chinatown\garyphone.dlg with a texteditor (Notepad), and go down to the end of the file.
In Line { 112 } replace { RandomLine( [0, 1] ) == 1 } with { OneOfSet(1,2) }
And in Line { 113 } replace { RandomLine( [0, 1] ) == 0 } with { OneOfSet(2,2) }

That's it. You don't even have to kill a russian Mafia boss... Twisted Evil

Thanks for posting the fix. Forgive me if I am missing something, but I am running into another issue.

I can't seem to figure out how to save this in a .dlg format. My basic notepad doesn't allow this, and whenever I run into an issue like this I simply run Notepad++. However, for the life of me, I can't seem to find any way to save as a .dlg or find a designated editor / converter. Notepad++ keeps giving me an error that says the file MAY be open somewhere else, but is very vague and inaccurate and I believe it has more to do with the fact that it doesn't have a way to save it as a .dlg as far as I can tell. I already went through and disabled the read only flags on all the files as well as running notepad++ as admin.

My gut says since you folks are able to craft entirely new dialogues yourselves, you probably have some idea as to how to work around the problem I am encountering.

If it is relevant I am using Windows 7 64 bit.

Sorry again if I am overlooking something obvious.

Hm, that's weird. I do most of my modding with Notepad++, and never had any issues with file extensions. Same goes for plain Notepad. Either win7 is to blame. I don't know, because I still run vista. Or you have only ALT TAB 'd out of the game, without quitting. That would also explain why Notepad++ tells you something about the file being in use somewhere else.
Usually a text-editor only gives a warning if you change the extension. In any case, use SAVE, not SAVE AS.

Hope this helps.

I appreciate the speedy response.

I never have been able to resolve the issue with notepad++ insisting the file was in use. Despite the fact that Notepad++ told me this, I was able to move the file, rename it, etc., so clearly the rest of my system didn't believe it was being used. VTMB was not running and I had done a clean restart just to be sure something wasn't running in the background, but I still received the same error. Looks like this part was my system, however, and had nothing to do with VTMB or the Camarilla mod. I appreciate your help nonetheless.

What I eventually did was move garyphone.dlg to another folder, throw a copy of it onto a USB and edit the USB document on another computer (this one was running on Vista, and that may be part of what resolved it, but I honestly have no idea). Regardless, I moved edited copy back into the chinatown directory straight from my USB stick, and it works. I'm on my way to the Giovannis now.

Thanks again for your assistance, but it looks like this error is probably localized. Still, if anyone else runs into a similar issue, you may want to try something similar.

I have the same problem and it seems I'm too stupid to understand how to apply the fix Very Happy
Am I supposed to replace the whole { RandomLine( [0, 1] ) == 0 } or just part of it? What does the line look like after replacing?

If I understand Malkav correctly (and with Malkavians, you can never be certain), { RandomLine( [0, 1] ) == 1 } in line 112 must become { OneOfSet(1,2) } and { RandomLine( [0, 1] ) == 0 } in line 113 must become { OneOfSet(2,2) }.

{ 112 }{ Hello? }{ Hello? }{ 1 }{ { OneOfSet(1,2) } }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ Yes? }
{ 113 }{ Hello? }{ Hello? }{ 101 }{ { OneOfSet(2,2) } }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ }{ Yes? }

Is it like this? Tried this and it doesn't work.

I would guess so. I'm no modder, nor have I ever even looked at the game files, but if you only changed those randomline thingies, it should be good.

Yep that's it, but be careful with the tabulations and else. Check it with BDE (a .exe you can find on planet-vampire's downloads, it's meant to open and see DLG files)

Hey NobleSavage, welcome to the forum.

You have a pair of {} too much around the OneOfSet entries. That's what causes your problems.

Hi I'm still in the beginning of the game and till now i have encountered two bugs:

1. First the stick and the gum in Santa Monica are gone.

2. And second, in the mission where Bertram wants those items i take the Enigma machine and the CD (after coping and deleting the reports), but when i go to him nothing happens, it gives me the usual options in the dialog.

Can you tell me where is the problem and if i missed something, what is it?

Thanks in advance.
