Bloodlines History List Version: 1.01 By Jake Zahn -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This will be a complete list of all the histories available in game, and will list exactly who has access to each and what benefits/penalties each has. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Version History -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1.00 - First incarnation. 1.01 - Spelling fixes. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- How to Enable Histories -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- First you have to make sure you have the console enabled. If you don't know how to do this, instructions are at the bottom of this guide. Once that's done, go into your vampire\cfg folder located in your main Bloodlines folder. The default is: C:\Program Files\Activision\Vampire - Bloodlines\vampire\cfg Now find the Config.cfg file. Open it with notepad, scroll down to the bottom, and add this line: vchar_edit_histories "1" Then, just save the file. Now, when you start a new game, you'll have the opportunity to choose a history. WARNING: Sometimes the game will crash after selecting a history, this is normal and happens seemingly at random. Simply start the game back up and choose the history again. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Explanation -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Basically each clan has a specific set of histories they can choose from, but there are a few histories that more then one clan have access to.
