Ok, I was playing the game, with the unofficial 5.7 patch installed, with the plus added to it, and well, I had a funny thing happen. I restarted the game, after beating it before, playing a Malkavian. This time around, I picked Brujah. I thought something may have gone wrong. Ok, there are several problems that come up, one is that at some point I go to talk to Mercurio, after fixing him up, and getting the Astrolite, the game will boot me out of it. I go back in the game, and everything appears to be fine. That is, until after I raid the warehouse, and then blow it up, Mercurio disappears. I can't find him in his apartment or at the beach. Oh, and every time I talk to him, he's on the couch, and still looks like he's been beaten. Then, after I hop the cab to downtown, well, Fat Larry doesn't show up at his van. I tried patching up to 5.8 to see if there is any help there, but doesn't seem like it. Oh, I think this happens after I talk to Trip, and ask him if he sells weapons, without talking to Mercurio to call Trip for me. If that's the problem, well, I guess I need to restart the game, again.
