    Just wanted to say, after watching pony play this a bit, the best thing is getting a stealth kill with the sledge hammer.

    man, VTM: Redemption's multiplayer storytelling tools were fuckin' tits. you could have run some good games like that.

    Unfortunately there was very little content shipped with the game. Almost no character models or maps.

    Was VTM: Redemption that UT engine VTM game that came out years ago? My friends and I waaaay back when had a LAN party where one of us DMed a game using the system it came with. It was fantastic multiplayer.

    It might have been an earlier version of the fan patch then? I distinctly remember getting the katana from him in one of my playthroughs years ago, but don't remember if I'd had any mods on at the time. Thought I'd just had the official patch, but maybe not.

    Without the fan patch it might depend on which weapon he is using when you kill him. If he has the crossbow out he drops the crossbow, if he has the katana out he drops that.

    With the fan patch he drops both everytime.

    does he drop them with the plus fan patch? I wonder if it was just a bug that he didn't drop any weapon when I had the basic fan patch.

    Yeah, he never drops the weapons without the fan patch, they just burn up with him.

    I would have liked to get a crossbow earlier in the game than in the stupid Quei-Jin temple. And more ammo.

    I never really had a chance to do anything with it.

    The thing sucks, it makes a big deal out of "stealth kills" in the description, but the thing is identical to using a gun near as I can tell.

    Elizabeth Dane mission

    I can't seem to access the cameras in the boat.

    I've checked and as far as I can tell this is the right computer.

    But the only options is to access the weather, I can't get the cameras or anything.

    I've checked the guide and I am sure I am in the right room.

    Any help?

    the cameras are in the "Security" menu, or something like that.

    You might try backtracking to before you got onto the ship, and starting over.

    You COULD just do it the hard way, but if starting it all over fixes the issue, you'd still be getting things done faster.

    Huh. Guess you gotta do it the hard way, then. It's not much worse. IT just means you have to sneak out to see the Sarcophagus close up, instead. Also it might be more difficult to get back to the boat, but as long as you don't kill anybody you'll get full experience.

    You been hopping around the crates?

    You gotta avoid sneaking near the guards on deck-level as much as you can.

    It's doable if you're at least slightly decent at sneaking.

    Blaket you sissy, that mission is easy to ninja through until you run into the bug that allows dudes you do not have line of sight on you to see you even though you are stealthed and there is no lighting and, I reiterate, they do not have LOS.



    Okay, yeah, actually fuck that mission pretty good.

    I know I'm a bit late to the party, but the reason you lot are having trouble with the Elizabeth Dane cameras is because you don't access them from the command input line.

    There's a monitor next to that computer which has security footage on it. Click E until it shows the part of the ship you want. Voila. No need to stealth past any cops except one. Who your "contact" distracts for you.
