Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines Patch

A new version 8.1 beta 2 patch is now available for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, continuing the community support for this game that's now lasted about as long as its developer Troika games was in existence. The change log outlines all that's new.

Going to have to give this another play through again soon, but I sure would love to see a sequel or another similar game that captures the feel of this game - the atmosphere, great dialog, excellent soundtrack, and humor. Such a great game.

I use the competing patch which released a final version years ago. I prefer to stick to the core game the developers made.

Me too, the way people describe these patches, I'm expecting Bloodlines one and a half.
Different is good.

It is well known that Bloodlines was released unfinished and rushed. The plus version of the Unofficial Patch restores a lot of unused content found in the game files so it's almost a kind of restoration project compared to the basic version which stays true to the original released game. Expect actual new content in some future patch as we try to recreate the cut library level according to infos from Brian Mitsoda himself using lots of assets already done by Troika!

I'm pretty sure they have a version of the fan patch that doesn't add content but just fixes stuff.

I know, but since the other one is designed for people like me it just makes sense to go with it. Plus it's finished.

Gratz on another release and thanks for all the hard work! Can't wait to see the restored Library! Cheers

If your happy with it, that's great.

However unless he has removed all the added content, like his textures then it's not "Just a Fix" at all, unlike BUP Basic. It's more like self promotion, since he claims it's only fixes and used it to divide the community.

He was forced to remove all the content he used from BUP and Wesp had to Trademark it to stop him, iirc.

Guess I need to finally break down and try this out. I trust it works fine with the steam version?

Look here for more info on Steam's V:TM-BL Forum here:

Yes, you should be able to get Wesp's or Tess's unofficial patches going w/ Steam version.

I recommend after you download Vampire: Bloodlines from Steam (patched up to Official Patch 1.2), you "archive" the entire game or back-up that game folder in its clean state somewhere else - in case you need to start back from scratch here to mod it up however you like.

Anytime you mod a Steam game, you probably should do this - especially on BIG-sized games. This is just in case 2 things could happen.
1. Something goes wrong w/ your game somehow from trying to mod it
2. Or Steam releases a new official patch that breaks your already modded-game - probably won't happen w/ Bloodlines b/c the game's old and Troika's gone (RIP), but I think this has been a problem w/ many who've modded Dead Island and Skyrim - and why I've never had problems w/ Dead Island and Skyrim (b/c I never modded them!).

This way, you don't have to re-download the entire thing to get back to a clean state, if you need to reinstall it to get back to a clean state.

You never modded Skyrim? Wha? How could you get past the horrible UI and woefully small default FOV?

Awesome. My next playthrough will be even better. I wish they'd do a kickstarter to do something better like a full remake.

Thank you for the link, MysterD. I could easily see the troubleshooting there coming in handy, running Win7 64.

And it's only a 2 gig download, so even if I end up having to redo it a few times, it's not that big of a deal...(only took like a half hour to grab it last night).

From everything I saw/read, Tessera was/is a raaaaaging egomaniacal douchebag (going well beyond just the VTMB stuff), and his most fervent supporters tend to be huge pains in the arse as well...

That's too bad, community should be united.

Worst yet, not sure since I never visit but I've heard he has started charging for it now or access to his site.


Additionally if any of you guys only play this every 6 months or a year, I suggest waiting for the Library level completion. Iirc it's burgermeister from Clan Quest mods making and adding the Library level which was cut by Troika. Wesp has been coordinating with Brian Mitsoda now running Double Bear who's Kickstarter is still running for the amazing looking game Dead State.

Oh boy, hellgate nude models - I'm sure there's a huge demand for those.

Tried the patch - worked flawlessly.
