I just bought this game, and I absolutely love it. Unfortunately my game crashes at a certain point. Even after I installing the unoffical patch. Hoping Wesp will fix the problem soon, so I can continue.

Cody, did you install the 1.2 official patch as well as the unofficial one?

And if you are having problems with a game crash, maybe Inland or Jenny could help you down in the Tech forum. I had problems playing the game until I upgraded my memory - it needs at least 1 GB to play well.

Yeah, I bought the game off steam, and steam downloads the latest version. Plus I have 4gbs of ram.

Are you still having a crash problem?
I was having a problem too and it got fixed when I increased my virtual memory. Have you tried that?

Well I installed this game yet again. My 7th time playing it. This is quite possibly the most enjoyable game I've ever played in any genre with the possible exception of Deus Ex. Mmm.. SS 2 is a [blip] fine game as well.

Anyway, the best part is. I thought I had played all of the clans, however for the first time ever, let the game decide for me and low and behold, it picked Ventrue! I started playing and realized I had never played as one before. Good stuff!

The dominate skill is a blast, and for once I'm concentrating on mostly defense skills and of course lockpick and sneak. God, what a fantastic game. Every time I play it the depth of the characters amaze me. And also one of the few games that actually has me laughing out loud. It's nice to be back.

Will also be picking up Redemption from GOG once I get paid. Tried the demo and found it a lot of fun as well.

Hi,
I have read this thread and this game really seems great. Two questions I have ...does it run on Vista? as I was considering a dl and saw a thread where someone warned it did not play on Vista. Also, do you play as just your main char or do you have a group with you to assign attacks and skills etc? as I saw in the redemption demo. Hope not as I dont really care for that type of combat. Thanks.

I can't answer the question about Vista, but in this one you only play as your character. It's a great game!

The game is sadly not compatible with Vista. However, there are some workarounds floating around the 'net that seem to work for some but not for others. It seems to be a hit and a miss, like most things with Vista.

It's really weird it doesn't work on Vista, since it works on my Win7 Pro 64-bit gig.

Because I MUST find the time somehow to play this game - it gets nothing but good comments - and I've had it on my shelf for eons yes yes

EDIT :
Well, I've installed it at least and am now researching patches bravo

Go, Mad!!!!bravo Don't worry too much about patches - just play. I've never patched the game and it runs fine.

I played the game on Vista and had no problems at all. No work arounds were needed. I just installed the game and away I went.

Mad you really will like the game.

Like I said, it seems to be a hit and a miss with Vista. It works for some, for many others it doesn't.

Mad, I would advise you to patch up to the 1.2 version and not get any of the unofficial patches.

I agree with Smoosh - I didn't care for the game changes in the unofficial patches.

Thanks for your comments folks - always helpful grin

I'll be playing on WinXP so I think I'll follow the 1.2 patch advice thanks

EDIT :

Well, I've started the game to get a feel of it - and will probably start it more than once till I think I might have some idea of what I'm doing lol

But I have a question already !!

Where do I find the list of key controls ??
Walk/Run .... QSave/QLoad .... ETC

I can't find any list in the manual eek

EDIT 2:
Found them !! blush

What clan do you think you'll be, Mad? I always recommend Gangrel for the first time through, because their disciplines are so cool. If you prefer hack n' slash, any of the others are good.

Have fun!

Hi Barb smile

Knowing nothin' about anythin' blush I opted to "answer questions" and let the game decide for me and I did, indeed, end up in the clan Gangrel thumbsup

I've played a little of the tutorial now and enjoyed myself but there are a lot of control keys to learn and that might cause me some problems until I have mastered them eek

I'm pretty sure I'm going to like this game though - even from the short section played so far bravo

Hey Mad. The manual that came with the game is very informative about controls, however if you ever get confused about something, try

http://www.planetvampire.com/

Tons of useful info on that site. This game is rather amazing in that it still has a very dedicated fan base. (And deservedly so IMO).

Hi olgeezer smile

I can't find the controls "listed by key" in the manual but I found them in the Main Menu of the game itself under "Options".

And yes, I discovered Planet Vampire when I was researching patches. It certainly looks like a great info source thumbsup

['Course, there IS also a fantastic band of folks here at Gameboomers who will probably be able to answer any question I might have happydance]

Thanks.

Mad grin

EDIT :
Need help already !! eek eek
I am still in the tutorial and am starting to make my way through the basement of a garage but have come to a door which requires a higher lockpicking level than I have.
So, I think I need to use the "Blood Buff" vampyric power ??
But don't know how to bring it on.
"Nightwisp Ravens" is showing at the right hand side of the screen at the moment. How do I change it ??
I've looked at the manual but can't find any info on how to actually use/control disciplines, only what they can achieve woozy

Help would be much appreciated, thanks.

If I remember correctly, you scroll through your disciplines with your middle mouse button.

I think you could safely say there will be plenty of help here! I may have to load the game up myself for another play through.

Wasn't it scroll through, then right click, it has been ages since I played this game. Plus I think there is a door lock card in the safe. I thought Jack is supposed to walk you through it.


What kind of magic spell to use?
