PostSubject: Switching between this and Vanilla?   Fri Aug 17, 2012 12:57 am

Hello, I'm new here. I'm excited to try this mod as I've been a big fan of Bloodlines since I bought it almost a year ago, but how do I switch between the original game (patched with wesps wonderful work) and this mod? I'm afraid that installing the mod would be permanent and I'd need to delete the game and reinstall it all over again should I feel the need to play the original. Thanks in advance.

For each mod it is recommended to have a separate installation folder. This is because the mods overwrite the same files, so changes from other mods/patches overwrite content which in 98% of the cases leads to crashes, glitches, bugs.

Most bloodline players have 1 clean installation folder, right from the scratch. Then copy this folder and install the mod/patch in it. So many, like me, have 4-5 bloodlines folders, each with a different mod/patch installed.

So, I'd just want to copy/paste from my 'core' install folder, instead of trying to accomplish multiple installs?

1. Install the game

2. Copy the WHOLE Vampire - Bloodlines folder to a safe place.

3. Mod the current in use VTMB.

4. If you want to use other mods, copy the copied folder from step 2 so you have a fresh clean install and install anothermod.

5. Redo step 4 with other new mods.

For me it looks like this:

Code:

D:/Games/Vampire Bloodlines Mods/Vampire - Bloodlines clean
                                                    ./Vampire - Bloodlines CQM
                                                    ./Vampire - Bloodlines TFN
                                                    ./Vampire - Bloodlines CE
