Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines v1.6 Unofficial Patch
This is an unofficial patch for Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines by Troika Games. It is build on Dan Upright's great unofficial patch 1.2, which it includes together with its partially corrected readme.
To install it extract this archive into your game folder keeping the directory structure intact and backup any files being overwritten if you want to remove it later.
This patch attempts to fix many bugs and improve other things but no guarantees are made, since not everything could be tested. It can be installed easily on top of the official 1.2 patch from Troika Games.
Confirmations of fixes marked with a "*" would be nice, also reports of any other problems, glitches and non-crashing bugs that have been missed up until now.
Not done (impossible?):
When using the console be sure to activate it from the menu only.
Before reinstalling the official 1.2 patch clean up the registry.
