HowTo / Notes

Fix launching the patched game

While the unofficial patch 9.4 works perfectly well on Linux, the launcher that is created by the setup is broken.

Find the "VTM Bloodlines Unofficial Patch.desktop" file on your desktop, open it up with a text file and change the line:

-game\ Unofficial_Patch

to

-game Unofficial_Patch

You can also apply the latter one in the Steam startup options to track your playing time with the unofficial patch.

Make the game look better

To force antialiasing in the game, run this in a terminal:

__GL_FSAA_MODE=4

export __GL_FSAA_MODE

wine /path/to/your/Vampire.exe -game Unofficial_Patch

ATI/AMD Anti-aliasing

Is there a way to force anti-aliasing with AMD cards? I have a R9 290X and Driconf doesn't affect it.
