PostSubject: No Cab in Santa Monica??   Thu Feb 03, 2011 5:38 am

Am I doing something wrong?

I mean, Ive played through the game literally dozens of times, but now that Im playing Tremere, and I blow up the warehouse, there is no cab?

First time Ive tried it with Camarilla Edition.... so far, impressed, but would like to be able to get farther than Santa Monica...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ive installed and reinstalled over 4 times now...?

You did talk to Bertram Tung again afterwards, right? And he told you "You better get back downtown. Prince LaCroix is going to want to hear all about this victory."?

If so, then I'll ask what mods/patches you have installed. Just Camarilla Edition? Which version, did you install/not install the Unoffical Patch, etc.? Also: What OS/Video card are you running?

Absolutely did finish off the conversation with Bertram - In fact, after I did that, I also finished up all the other missions in Santa Monica that I could in the hopes it would jog the cab into existence - After that, I checked the sewers to see if there was a Nosferatu style way to get downtown ...to no avail.

Any ideas?

PS
(Thanks for helping)

Sorry, I didnt see that last part -

I completely uninstalled VTM -Bloodlines, and reinstalled clean - threw on the update patches - Then I threw on the newest Camarilla version...played through - same thing happend, so, I unistalled VTM, reinstalled clean, updated the patches, as well as all the unofficial ones, and then installed every Camarilla Edition in order ( in case you had to have them prior to installation of the new ones ), played through, same problem.

I dont know what video card Im running - Im running windows XP however, and have never had problems with the game before while running 'clean'.

Another interesting note - I pulled an old save file out that started from downtown to see if the cab was there, and it was, so I took it to Santa Monica to see if it would be on the street there, and it was, however, when I went to Lacroix for the Dane mission, the same thing happened to me as the other bug posted where you cannot leave his office and can see the city through the walls in his hallway....

Patches are included in CE. Uninstall, reinstall, install CE, install CE patch. In that order. And nothing else. Most likely the additional patch install prior to CE screwed something up. Hope it helps.

I wish that would help!

Thats actually what I did the first go around.
Clean install, Then the latest version of CE with patch. Same problem -
Ill do it again just to be 110 % sure though.

Thanks for the input though...
Any other suggestions?

Where did you look for him? In front of the parking garage or in the alley between Confession and the Chantry? That's where he should be for the unofficial patches, and therefore also for CE.

Your problem sounded like those I've seen when people try to install two different mods, or try to install the Unoffical Patch over CE, etc. That's why I asked about what mods/patches you had installed. But if you truly deleted everything and just installed CE and the CE patch, then I don't know. Childe of Malkav might be able to help; he wrote the latest mod.

Sounds like something is still being messed up when you reinstall. You're not trying to use old saved games after the reinstall, are you? Glitches can be carried over that way. I'm asking because it seems unlikely that you ran through all the quests in Santa Monica between your last two posts.

You guys were totally right...

Everything is good now...I have a feeling the "cab" issue was the fact that I used a previously saved game -
Everything works fine now...except for my "Domination"....when I upgrade using points, it doesnt show up on my discipline scroll in the bottom right corner....
No matter, though, but curious if its just me?

Thanks a lot for the input, I appreciate it.

For the targeted disciplines like dementation, dominate, thaumaturgy... you have to use hotkeys (standard k) to activate the higher levels. I don't know what exactly causes this, but changed disciplines only show up with the first two levels if you select via the mouse wheel. So you have to select your disciplines via hotkeys, same as the weapons. But you get used to it.
If this fits your keyboard setup, and you don't need the camera commands there, you can also set the NumPad keys as secondary for the hotkeys.

Glad you got things working. As for the Domination -- that's part of the mod; when they change anything about the disciplines, sometimes they don't show up when you scroll the mouse wheel. You can still attach them to 'hot' keys, though. Press 'K', and attach the various Dominate abilities to a hot key.

haha... Echo.

it's weird, though... the forum didn't inform me that someone posted a new comment while I was writing mine. It usually does that.

You're right. Usually it does. Perhaps you opened the editor at the same time I sent, and so the forum thought you got my message.

This is great stuff.

Im actually a graphic designer by trade, and have done numerous posters for Goth nightclubs and bands for years.

If you guys need any help with graphics, etc. and I have the time,
Let me know.

Other than that, good Job.

In my last comment, I was pretending I was human, not Kindred... so no smoking for me, HAHA!

Sturm,

How handy are you with Photoshop and designing building/structure based textures. It's been a long time dream for me to one day go through the 4 basic hubs and rip out alot of the signs, bricks and mortar, floors, streets, etc... and breathe new life into them. If you're good at that sort've stuff and can make high resolution textures, man the upgrade in CE/TFN could be awesome! It would basically be eye candy for the player, but totally worth it!
