PostSubject: Malkavian font is annoying   Fri Feb 01, 2013 5:12 pm

Hello guys, good work on the mod, it brought me back to this priceless gem of a game.

One question though - how to get rid of the Malkavian font? It's hard to read and breaks game immersion for me. I don't need a special font to enjoy their lunacy at all.

Hm, there is a file somewhere that controls the fonts, but I'm not even sure if it's unpacked for the patch or any of the mods. And right now, I'm too tired to look it up. Perhaps tomorrow.

- geek

P.S.: All I found is -bloodlines/vampire/resource/trackerscheme.res There are changes from Wesp in it, so it's unpacked in the Patch and all mods built on the patch. It's a simple textfile, so you can open and edit it with Notepad.

Thank you.

Could you give me another tip though - what to change for it to work. All instances of Vamp_Dialog_Base ?

I'm not sure. Probably it's enough to change it for your screen resolution.

I had to change this in TFN so that the Salubri didn't talk like mad men. Open up the file Malkav talked about and find the following entry.

"Dlg_Malk_800"
{
"1"
{
"name" "Vamp_Dialog_Base"
"tall" "18"
"weight" "900"
// "range" "0x0000 0x007F" // Basic Latin
"range" "0x0000 0x00ff" // Vampire fonts should be ANSI-1252 compliant
}
}

You will want to change the name to "Vamp_Dialog_Base" which will make the font look like everyone elses. If you look at the top of the entry you will see "Dlg_Malk_800". This means that this only works for the 800x600 resolution size. You will want to do this for ALL of the resolution sizes (640, 1024, 1280, and 1600). So there are a total of 5 entries to make changes too.

Have fun duckling! Razz

you should not slight malkavian font for that added level of lunacy in their dialogue in the game.

in extremely successful comic books part of their value has been precisely in the lettering of the dialogues
todd kleintodd klein
is considered a god in the comics industry
precisely by the way his fonts added levels of meaning to the dialogue texts contained (not always) in the word balloons
e.g. for sandman he created... almost a different font for every character....
at least the most recurrent ones
certainly one for each of the main characters, the 7 endless....

to me what you complain about is an added value.

but then, that's just me...



on that note...
zer0morph,
salubri are such special a clan
they do deserve to speak their own way,
i mean have their own idiosyncratic dialogue options....

perhaps each clan should....

(and is it a revelation or a throw back to what i thought was a resolved conclusion...
which was the clan from vanilla that you chose as template for the salubri?
when it comes to dialogue, you seem to be implying it was the malkavians...

i do remember that each clan you created for this version of the game was sort of a patchwork quilt of modified and reassembled pieces of cloth....

would be interesting... the whole story...

i do remember, though, someone telling me about the discipline's aspect of this...)

Sometimes the letters do get annoying and hard to read, I personally prefer just reading the sentence without having to screw my brain in the ass to figure out what someone is saying.

Maybe it has less to do with what you said and more to do with what Aphrodite read. Wink

er... huh...
did i oversteped my bounds?
incurred her jealousy?
is she keeping him away?
or is it the wrong way around,
was i keeping him away and...

did i came in between....

anyway aphrodite is not where to look for the sun of my feelings for him
think more platonic limbo....

aphrodite has no reason to be jealous of platonic feelings.
i think....


though... argh!!!
love for friends, whom i call beloved friends, by definition platonic
and yet history of actual significant others
jealousy...

a curse, i think...
the way i give (and am given) when i really give of myself....

Platonic, eh?

I don't know. That doesn't sound all that platonic to me.

No, I'm just teasing. I like to mess with people's minds on occasion. Though now that I think of it, trying to mess with the mind of a Malkavian is kind of like trying to rape a tentacle monster - the roles can easily get reversed and then you're screwed. Laughing

Raping a tentacle monster... Shocked pale
I really didn't need that mental image in my head right before going to bed, mate.

It gets harder if the monster can regrow or separate them as needed...

tentacled monster?
i do enjoy a good relationship with chthulu....
and his peers as well....
though, once again, purely platonic...
i guess i can endure that because i had no mind to start with to loose it while coming into contact with him...

i have also a very good relationship with medusa
or am i one of her gorgon sisters?
i forget which....

but i guess you have all suffered the effect of all the serpents that pass as my hair gazing at you with the eyes serpents use to hypnotyze their prey, all my various minds speaking as one and garbling my speech beyond intelligibility....

some of you seem to feel you have been raped by this tentacullar monstrosity....
i mean your minds violated.....

(and i bet no one would like to consider, sex and tentacled monster, number of orifices and number of tentacles...)


anyway.
you are right on one account, or rather on one assertion on that which is meant by platonic love:
it doesn't imply physical contact.

he is wearing my skin, so our skins have touched, so, under that assertion, you are entirely correct, the boat of platonicity has sailed away into the realm of physical contact.

but i will still insist on a measure of platonicity
think of my feelings for him partaking of a chaste innocence.

one way to put it, the totem animal for my mother archetype is still the bear

another way to put it is, when it comes to love, i can love like someone forever stuck before the threshold of puberty.... with all that it entails...

like adam unto eve or vice versa before they partook of the fruit of knowledge...

so...
strictly platonic?
in a sense, no.

but on a broader sesne....


(and on a broader yet sense, we only exchanged words and the ideas they underlay and substantiate, no ACTUAL physical contact has taken place....

but i would be the one to most forcibly object to such a degree of detachment...)

beloved ancestor
apologies for rousing you from your slumber
through your naming
i bessech you, i placate you, i appease you,
do return to your dormancy,
there is nothing for you to concern with at the present,
i was just enumerating a roster of unlikely alliances
i have no real need of you now at the moment....

No, no. It's fine, Velvet. I do distinctly recall someone mentioning tentacle rape. This does happen to be a favorite pass time of Mine...

Well... I could teach you how to change into mist or meld with the Earth. It grants foolproof, guaranteed escape from pursuit.
Depends what I can get in return... Twisted Evil

I thought about a Discipline teaching... Other than Dementation, of course!
I know Obfuscate from my time in the Sabbat. So Auspex would be cool by me. Unless there is some other Discipline on Velvet's list i might be interested in...?
