This is likely to be the final version of Vampire Slayer so I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have helped over the last four years make the game what it was, what it is and what it will continue to be in Chapter VI.
Firstly, my incredible graphics partner Katharii, who through many obstacles has always given one hundred percent.
Secondly, thanks to Rich Taylor who has always done exactly what was required, often at short notice, to provide me with the finest of Linux builds.
Thanks to all the wonderful mappers who have contributed official maps over the years. Lily, CheeryE, JMW, Ghostly, Tyrant, Jinx, Father Brandon, Magilla, Slayer, Yamazaki, Chris Amatangello, Fish Bulb, Mika Lipasti and MrBunwah.
I would like to thank Sobek for his incredible work behind the scenes on Vampire Slayer, especially on Chapter VI. I would also like to thank the Planethalflife staff who have continually given me great support, all the Valve staff and other mod programmers on HLCoders, the Wavelength website and it's contributors, the Wadfather, Rincewind, Benjamin, Virtuoso, Chuck@DNA and to all server admins everywhere who've ever run a VS server.
Thanks to members of the community who have remained positive, supportive and enthusiastic and helped out through the chapters, Ghostly, Razor, Rasak, deZ, Rex, Mari and Milenko.

Atque in perpetuum, frater, aue atque uale!

Can use keys in Steam?
| 5/5/2004 | 01:05 PST - routetwo
I get asked this a lot so I thought I'd post it. The solution is thanks to Razor.

"Due to a steam bug you won't be able to bind the keys as you want. This bug affects all mods, not just vampire slayer. To fix this, download the file below (right click and choose 'save target as...':

download kb_act.lst

Save it to:

\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\YourEmail\Half-Life\VS\gfx\shell\kb_act.lst

Click yes to overwrite. This bug should now be fixed."

Please welcome Eightball, the new slayer for Chapter V made by Katharii.
He's mean, he's moody, he's been through many fights and he's a dab hand with a pool cue.
Eightball's journey to Vampire Slayer has been long and hard, with lost hard drives, broken computers and many other obstacles along the way but here he is at last and we hope you like him.
