Get it from http://www.patches-scrolls.de/patch/4647/66381 (Germany), http://patches.planetvampire.com/VTMBup93.exe (Canada) or http://patches2.planetvampire.com/VTMBup93.exe (France).

This time the setup has been changed, so now the patch will install itself into a subfolder of the main game directory called Unofficial_Patch and you need to start the game either via the desktop icon or start menu entry or manually using the classic Source mod -game parameter. That way several mods can easily be installed parallel on one vanilla game version! Thanks for this go to Behar, who not only created the Game Mod Loader but included all previous dll fixes into it as well!

The patch also includes two new maps, the Malkavian Maze and the Warrens Shortcut. Special thanks go to Psycho-A for the continuous improvement of the Bloodline SDK which made creating maps possible in the first place. Thanks also go to EntenSchreck who supplied me raw drafts of both maps which I finished in Hammer, to Psycho-A and atrblizzard for optimizing them in several ways and the two older new maps too, and last not least to No_Mercy, who showed no mercy at all discussing each minor detail in all of the new levels that could be improved ;)! And as always to my beta-testers...

Oh wow, there's a mod loader now? Perhaps I should replay this game sooner rather than later.
I'm looking forward to that Malkavian maze and the sewers shortcut.

Thanks for all the work wesp, and everyone else who made this possible.

Sorry to bother you wesp, but would you mind answering a few questions? I downloaded a previous patch you made and played through the game so first of all thanks for that patch, the game is now one of my favourites.

I have just downloaded and installed this patch and I also decided to go for the 'Plus Patch'. How would I know the plus patch is working? I was also reading there is a SweetFX for the game. Is that included in the patch? If it is do I need to manually activate it or will it activate automatically?

Well, unless it changed now, if you go to the character creation screen, it should say something along the lines of "Unofficial Patch <version number> Plus" in one of the corners, It was top left, if I recall correctly.

I was also reading there is a SweetFX for the game. Is that included in the patch? If it is do I need to manually activate it or will it activate automatically?


Last time I've played the game, SweetFX had to be activated manually. It was in a folder called Extras.There was a sample configuration to go with it but I don't think it made as much of a difference as I'd liked - I did play around with it but overall it was a minor improvement.

ENBSeries was also included under Extras - I can't remember if I used it or not, though.

It was changed, it's now in Options under the "Gameplay" tab. It also doesn't tell you if you're using the Plus patch or not anymore.

But you can still find out which version of the patch you're using, just look at your character sheet and see if it uses "Mental" or "Public" in the Feats list. If it says "Public", you're using the Plus patch.

Another easy way is to check your disciplines, in the Plus Patch you do have Bloodheal.
