PostSubject: Hello and Help!   Sat Nov 03, 2012 11:38 am

Hello everyone! I just got VtmB (I've been wanting this game for several years now) and finally got it installed! As you can tell by my name, I'm a huge fan of the Toreador Clan from VtM. I'm obsessed with beauty myself, so I naturally clicked with this Clan's ideals. Also, the fact that they're beautiful creatures and only sire who are beautiful and/or have great artistic ability also made me happy.

I love both Vampire: The Masquerade and Vampire: The Requiem. I tend to like VtR a little more than VtM because of it's lore and cleaner mechanics. In VtR, my favourite Clan is, obviously, the Daeva (though I don't play as a Daeva of the Toreador bloodline).

So, I have a huge problem every time I've tried to run Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines. I ALWAYS get this error, though I haven't done anything wrong (and I got it even before I downloaded the 8.3 patch, which I figured would fix my problems): Unable to load manifest file 'scripts/game_sounds_manifest.txt'. I've Googled this error before and came up with some results, however, none of them helped. One result actually lead me here and I figured you all might be able to help. I read (on here) that the .exe file the person was using was renamed differently, but when I checked mine, it was just 'vampire' (without the quotations). If anyone can help, that would be just amazing as I've wanted to play this game for 6+ years now, ever since I saw it out in stores when it first came out.

P.S. I can take screenshots if that would be of help to anyone.

P.P.S. Also, I saw that there is a rp section on here. I might just hop in because I LOVE to rp!

Thanks everyone!

Do you have CE installed?

As for the RP you'll have to hunt Claudia down somehow somewhere and nag to set you up What a Face
Check in the chatbox on occasion too if you're interested.

No, I don't have CE installed, though I want it REALLY badly! The work you guys put into it is astounding! affraid I just feel so close to being able to play it, and it's driving me crazy. I've looked through all sorts of folders that I have in the directory, but there doesn't seem to be anything wrong. So close, but so far away..

Also, when I've viewed videos of VtMB gameplay, I've been dissatisfied with the male Toreador model. Is it possible to do a reskin of that model with that of the male Ventrue model? If so, could the male Toreador clothes be used for the reskin or would they have to use the original clothes?

While it certainly is possible to use the Ventrue models for the toreador, what isn't is to change the clothes. If you still would want to knowing this, then I can easily type up a guide to do so. Also, it wouldn't be just reskining the textures, it would be changing the models. Though you could certainly reskin the textures, it isn't really needed.

There are two ways to do it, one of them being quite simple(mostly copy and pasting text).

Editing Clandoc001.txt

All this requires really is opening the clandoc txt file(located in 'Vampire/vdata/system/'), and making a few changes. It can be opened with notepad. Also, I would recommend that you keep a backup of this file(even making a copy of it and renaming the copy Clandoc002 would work fine).

The only thing to decide on, is if you want to switch the models, meaning the Ventrue models are used for the toreador, etc.

Use the find feature, and look for "Player_Ventrue". The lines labeled "M_Body" are the male ones. Select all of these lines, and then right click, choosing copy. Next, scroll up to where it says "Player Toreador". Like the previous, there are lines marked "M_Body". Select these lines, then right-click, choosing paste. So long as you see all five lines, it's pretty much done.

The only thing you might still want to do is have the Ventrue use the Toreador model, and that involves the same process. If you need to, just select the "M_Body" lines for the Ventrue, then copy this:

Changing the Models

Although this one would allow what you want, it also requires a fair bit of work to do it.

Hi Toreador, welcome to the forum.

First pretty sucker we have here, I think. Let's taste your blood Twisted Evil

I have no idea how to help you with your problems starting the game. Sounds like a problem due to the new op versions. I guess you run win7 or something. Have you tried using a compatibility mode, XP or Vista? And running it as administrator is supposed to help with some problems as well. I know there is no sound manifest or similar file in the game.

As an addon to what Maxus said: Better don't delete or overwrite the toreador armor lines, just comment them out.
Comment mark in clandoc and similar files is a double slash // the rest of the line is ignored by the game engine. You can see examples of this with the "hands" lines. That makes it easier to switch back if you want, or if you find some downloadable skin to install later.
You can find skin-files on PlanetVampire or on ModDB. Links are on this forum.

Certainly not. I cxan't use a prety sucker as Igor. A good looking igor would be ridiculous. And for guinea pigs, I need vampires with useful disciplines like obtenebration or vicissitude. Even chimerstry could come handy... Twisted Evil

Would be fun to make a pretty one into a new Igor and give promises for restoration in turn for loyal service no? What a Face

Sure would make an easier target than me What a Face

Better catch a Nossie or some Tzimisce with bad understanding of Vicissitude for the job of Igor. Perhaps even a Samedi...

As opposed to someone who can grab rocket launchers from a pocket or have Werewolves claw their way out of hot dog stands?

I dare think the Celerity guys are the easier targets here What a Face
