What are the differences between basic and plus version ?

I've already played the game with the unofficial patch but that was some years ago, I know that I used the basic version but can't remember what changed if the plus version was used.

And I can't seem to find this info nowhere, the installer doesn't explain anything and doesn't seem to be a readme anywhere...

Here's my interpretation of "basic" and "Plus" (please, Wesp, correct me if I err):

Basic version is close to gameplay as the game was originally released. Bugs are fixed, but gameplay is as close to originally released otherwise.

Plus version incorporates some aspects of the game that were deleted, unfinished, or modified when the game was originally released.

It's no secret that the original release of VtM:B was something of a rush job. There were several things the game developers didn't get a chance to complete or fully test. Also, some parts of the game were modified for release for one reason or another.

Wesp has researched this and examined the game code/content to restore some things that were deleted or to enhance gameplay as he saw proper.

Personally, I wouldn't play any other version but the plus version. I think Wesp did a superlative job of restoring the game to something closer to what was originally intended, rather than what was initially released.

Nice, thanks for the explanation.

Just one more thing, how do I know if the game was patched properly ?

edit: nevermind, it says on the char creation screen :P

Huh? As for your problem, I can't imagine why Bloodlines shouldn't run after installing the UP. Have you installed it to the correct directory? What happens when you start the game? To remove the patch just reinstall the game itself...

Fileplanet does not seem to have the patch anymore. Anyone know where I can find a working download?

The latest patches have never been on Fileplanet. If you were talking about FileFront/GameFront, the 7.5 is available from there right now.

Great patch (lets me actually run the game) but intro videos wont play (just getting black screen with sound). And are there any solutions for widescreen resolutions, perhaps within the patch?

Just rename the video folder to something else to get rid of them completely.

No, but there is the ResPatcher tool in the Extras folders to be used.

this looks interesting, but is there a complied list of what all this changes and improves? I tried looking through the English support forums, but to be honest all the adds drove me off pretty quick. I played bloodlines back when it first came out, but lost my original disk. saw it on sale and made a nostalgia buy.

It's in the patch readme but too long to post here. Download the patch and check it out, it is displayed before the patch is installed...

I'm using 7.5 basic patch at the moment and I plan to use the plus patch for my second walkthrough. Can I overwrite the basic patch by installing the plus patch directly or do I have to reinstall the whole game in order to change patch version?

You can just install the plus patch on top of the basic patch without reinstalling the whole game. But I recommend that you wait until next week, because I plan to release version 7.6 then with some new restorations for the plus patch :)!

No you do not need the 1.2 patch as the unofficial patch has it.

The VTMBup75.exe will have an installer option where you can choose plus or not.

I would say for a first play through don't use plus, You can really tell how much more was added to the game the next time around.

Argh! You're killing me! I've waited years for a sale and now I have to wait some more? Kidding, kidding! Thanks for all the hard work you've put into this game. I haven't tried it or the patch yet, but from what I've read, the patches are phenomenal. Looking forward to trying it out. Thank you!

No hurry, but I finally bought this game on sale and will be looking to start it up once 7.6 is ready. :D

I have a New Vegas playthrough to go through though, so no rush. And even when that's done, I have a whole bunch of Sam and Max to do if I'm still waiting. :cool:
