IntroductionWelcome to the Age of Redemption. This modification is intended for fans of the original Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption single player experience who are seeking a more revitalized take of the original game. The Age of Redemption mod is intended to fix several issues that existed in the original game including the lack of a functioning multiplayer coop mode for the single player epic campaign. Age of Redemption IS NOT A PATCH; it's an overhaul.
Age of Redemption goals to make major changes to the gameplay mechanics, maintain multiplayer coop support, and alter level designs all for the purpose of modernizing the gaming experience. The original Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption came out in a time where Diablo 2 was launching and gaining quick popularity. There appeared to be an intent from Activision and Nihilistic to compete against Blizzard's flagship game. Unfortunately, there was neither enough time nor resources to complete the project so we were left with a half completed, yet epic, title that featured some World of Darkness elements, but with a hack & slash style similar to Diablo. Instead of trying to remove this style, Age of Redemption was aiming to finish what Nihilistic started in our own way and of our own vision. So if you're a fan of Diablo and have no trouble with a hack & slash style game then Age of Redemption is your kind of mod.
FeaturesHere is a list of major features:
This can work in conjuction with the Age of Redemption 2014 config app allowing much more robust control over your coterie's actions.
Multiplayer SupportThe Age of Redemption mod allows for full support for playing the Redemption single player game in multiplayer. The Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption single player chronicle had been combined together into one large chronicle. This means no longer having to quit the game to move on from Prague to Vienna. The Age of Redemption Chronicle should appear on the list of available game options in the multiplayer game creation screen. Also note that the AoR Mod v2014 has added support for turning off automatic storyteller, which will allow for freeform gaming and storyteller control.
Known Compatibility Issues With Other Mods
The Age of Redemption chronicle loads all of the template databases at once and is very strict about having seperate addons installed. So far, I have tested MoTA, Giga, Creature Mod, and White Rabbit packs. Unfortunately, the Age of Redemption chronicle is not compatible with installing all model packs available at E-Mods.net. This issue will be addressed over time and is a constant work in progress.
Using the ST Advance + Freeform Option
If a crash occurs or your running a chronicle in short sessions with your players then you may also advance the scenes in multiplayer using the ST Advance option.
If you are using freeform gaming then you may want to advance the scenes with a location segment so to unlock all exits to allow total exploration in that segment in multiplayer. Example is when you want to just allow players to roam around Prague freely then you can go to ST Advance after shutting off the Automatic Storyteller then choose the [Prague] Raid Ardan's Chantry [1,6] scene. Now everyone can go where ever to grind in either the Monestary, Silver Mines, Joseph's Tunnels, or Ardan's Chantry.
ConfigurationThis application is used to run the mod and requires .NET Framework 3.5 to run.
Be sure to run this program as Administrator or it may not fully function.
Walk the Abyss might occasionally cause your pets to be dismissed or killed. This is completely random and no specific cause has been identified yet. Will keep the public posted on any updates to this issue.
If a player travels to a level before the ST, many conversations wont show proper animations or lip synch. To resolve this issue, the ST should always travel ahead of the other players to synchronize stuff.
If a crash occurs attempting to start a Multiplayer LAN/Internet game then check the Crypt folder located in the main VTMR directory. Delete all content within the Crypt folder.
NOTE: the Internet option no longer works since the servers it connected to are no more. Use Tunngle to connect via vpn then use the LAN feature in-game instead. Regular game sessions are played via the Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption channel on Tunngle so check it out.
This is a required download for multiplayer. If you would like instructions on how to use Tunngle for multiplayer, check out this video:
