Unfortunately, there are some bugs that can't be fixed through these patches (like the sloppy cutscene editing). Activision needs to release the SDK for the game.

There is one, sort of. Bloodlines is a Source engine title with Python scripting on the sides. The problem beyond that is two-fold:

1. The engine is pre-Half Life 2, and apparently isn't 100% compatible with the HL2 tools, not to mention Valve almost immediately patched HL2 to deal with memory leaks and other issues in the Source engine; VTM got no such luxury.

2. Troika should have been inducted into the Great Idea, Horrendous Execution hall of fame. Three games over six years and not a one was technically sound, even after you patch them when you could.

I will note this--a couple of patches ago, the intro in the apartment with LaCroix kicking the door open finally worked right.
