Descrição dos patches





Patches

Quando Vampire Bloodlines foi lançado havia ainda muitos problemas técnicos e bugs, entretanto nenhum deles foi considerado suficientemente grave para o atraso do lançamento do jogo. Após o jogo ser liberado à público, entretanto, a Activision fez uma listagem de todos os problemas que foram reportados pelo serviço de atendimento ao consumidor através do site oficial do jogo e também em fóruns na internet. A partir daí a Activision autorizou a Troika Games a gastar uma semana criando um pacth para resolver os problemas mais graves entre os encontrados no jogo.
A Troika já em fase de falência já havia demitido quase todos os seus funcionários, com excessão dos três proprietários: Jason Anderson, Leonard Boyarsky e Tim Cain. Apesar disso, vários funcionários continuaram a trabalhar sem remuneração sobre a versão 1.2 do patch, que depois de três semanas, foi liberada em 22 de dezembro de 2004.
Incapaz de conseguir um novo projeto, a Troika Games fechou as portas em fevereiro de 2005 deixando para trás um jogo repleto de bugs. Entretanto, fãs do jogo continuaram a criar e a liberar patches não-oficiais para resolver esta situação.
OFICIAIS
Na verdade há apenas um patch oficial, o patch 1.2, que foi lançado em 22 de dezembro de 2004. Entre os problemas resolvidos por esse patch estão os bugs da Sociedade dos Leopoldos, o sumiço de itens durante as missões e alguns bugs ao se usar algumas disciplinas, principalmente Metamorfose e Fortitude.
NÃO-OFICIAIS
Existem na verdade duas séries de patches não-oficiais criadas para o jogo.
A primeira série foi criada por Dan Upright e, em seguida Werner “Wesp5” Spahl e membros da comunidade Planet Vampire, deram continuidade ao projeto. Durante a instalação é possível escolher entre a versão “básica” (basic), cuja instalação se limita a corrigir bugs e restaurar conteúdos com menor impacto sobre a jogabilidade; e a versão “plus” que além da correção de bugs, inclui também alterações na jogabilidade, incluindo novas armas, disciplinas, itens, missões ocultas e modificações de sequências de ações e cenas, com base em conteúdos que mesmo fazendo parte do jogo se encontravam escondidos nos arquivos instalados. A versão mais recente desta linha é a versão 7.4.a, liberada em 19 de abril de 2011.
Uma linha alternativa a essa é a chamada “True Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines Patch”. Esse projeto foi iniciado por Acrimonious e Tessera no fórum Tessmage.com com participação de vários membros do fórum. Seu objetivo é ser uma espécie de continuador do patch oficial 1.2, pois fixa apenas bugs encontrados no jogo original que o patch1.2 não foi capaz de eliminar. A quantidade de conteúdo restaurado é apenas o essencial para resolver problemas sem interferir na jogabilidade e na essência do jogo. A versão mais recente dessa linha, e provavelmente, a última a ser liberada é a versão 5.04AT hotfix #4, liberada em 10 de fevereiro de 2008. Esta versão foi anunciada como a versão final. Segundo consta no fórum é melhor instalá-la apenas para jogos novos, pois antigos jogos salvos podem sofrer problemas devido às significativas mudanças no código do jogo.
A mesma recomendação vale também para os patchs da linha Wesp5, pois instalá-lo em jogos antigos pode causar alguns erros de compatibilidade, principalmente nas versões mais recentes do patch. Então, o mais recomendado é que se você pretende usar um patch para correções no jogo, faça-o logo depois da instalação de Bloodlines, e só então comece a jogar. Depois da versão 6.0 não é preciso mais instalar o patch original antes de instalar a versão não-oficial, basta instalar o patch diretamente logo após a instalação do jogo.
PATCH DE TRADUÇÃO DA GAMEVICIO
Para quem quer traduzir as legendas do jogo para o português há uma ótima opção de patch de tradução disponível no site da Gamevicio. Atualmente esse patch está na versão 2.02. No arquivo da tradução, afirma que ela é compatível com as versões 1.0 até 2.6. Entretanto, no próprio site da Gamevicio é dito que a versão é compatível apenas com a versão original do jogo e com o patch oficial de atualização 1.2, no qual a tradução se baseou. Mesmo assim, é possível por sua conta e risco, utilizar a tradução com outras versões e até mesmo mods, entretanto, é quase certo que bugs irão surgir, pois com os vários patchs não oficiais que existem atualmente é pouquíssimo provável que haja 100% de compatibilidade, visto que nas correções dos patchs normalmente há revisão e alteração de diálogos devido à bugs e outras necessidades de modificação. Por isso há muitos relatos de missões que bugaram depois da instalação do patch de tradução. Então, se você deseja usá-la com patchs não oficiais esteja preparado para enfrentar bugs. Porém o patch de tradução tem a grande vantagem de permitir sua desinstalação sempre que for preciso, o que é uma maneira de se lidar com os bugs de incompatibilidade com patchs de atualização mais recentes.
OBS: Sobre as dicas e o tutorial presentes no site, elas se aplicam ao jogo original, e não às adaptações mod-plus do patch não-oficial ou aos novos mods que acrescentam novas “funcionalidades” do jogo original.

 

WESP5 – Histórico

Lembrando que os patchs são cumulativos, ou seja, não precisa instalar todos, só o mais recente. Atualmente eles dispensam a instalação do patch oficial 1.2, até porque o site oficial que oferecia o patch foi desativado.

As descrições das versões mais recentes podem ser encontradas no site Patch Scroll, onde também é possível baixar o patch.
