I did see that Zelda HUD a little while after i posted about it, now i just feel silly.
Good work on the bugfix, I'll start testing it out now.
Edit: so far, no bugs with Vlads ABS, though the game only has one character, so I'm not sure if it would work well with squad based.
Edit2: Tried it with Vampyr SBABS 9, and it has a conflict.
It's in this line of code
3312: if @character.actor != nil and @character.actor.damage != 0
And here's a pic of the Error, it pops up when you start a new game.
Hope this helps you figure out whats going on, that is on line 3312 of Vampyr SBABS
Apparently the Requiem ABS 8 works fine but ABS 9 is incompatible... strange.
