Re: Random quirks in Blood

Is it me, or is Blood a lot more buggy than the 2 other main build games? I mean, I love Blood, I love the atmosphere, I adore the levels, but just looking at the different build games, it seems the other 2 (Duke Nukem 3D and Shadow Warrior) have less real obvious bugs... Was Blood more made in a hu...

Re: Why was Blood overshadowed back in 1997?

Check out this interview with Kaiser, remaking Powerslave. http://techraptor.net/content/interview-man-rebuilding-powerslave He's almost finished with the remake (90%). And look what he says at the end of the interview: "Aside from that, I am not sure if there’s any other shooters I plan on remaking...

Re: Why was Blood overshadowed back in 1997?

I understand your frustration Krypto. But abanbon all hope? Never! As you said before, it happened to Strife. And right now, it's happening to Powerslave/exhumed. Another example: for years, people thought the Wanton Destruction add-on was lost, till somebody accidentally found it on some hard drive...

Re: What's so bad about Dead Reckoning?

It's not that episode 4 isn't good, it's just that the first 3 episodes are SO DAMN GOOD that it makes Dead Reckoning feel mediocre.

Mall of the Dead is awesome btw.

Re: Why was Blood overshadowed back in 1997?

Hi Axl! I to feel that despite the heart wrenching once in a life time opportunity of an old game developer returning to where it all started to seriously consider reviving an old classic all for the sake of fun, truly dedicated to the fans, it had to be stopped by publisher cockblocking shit. Then...

Re: Why was Blood overshadowed back in 1997?

Hah, yeah that's me :) I find it strange that Monolith sold the rights of Blood. I wonder if they regret it now. I mean, it was their first game and from the interviews I've read with the development team they always speak really fondly and nostalgically about it. They've even referenced it in thei...

Re: How To : One Unit Whole Blood with DosBox

Just to ley you know, the latest SVN Daum release (http://ykhwong.x-y.net/) fixes the general midi problem! This means I can run Blood smoothly on 800x600 without screen tearing or HUD fluckering. People who experience these issues with the normal dosbox release (0.74) may want to check out this uno...

Re: How To : One Unit Whole Blood with DosBox

Go to and download 1.2 version https://www.libsdl.org/download-1.2.php Then just replace SDL.dll in your dosbox directory. There also may require to set machine to vesa_nolfb Thx, I tried it, but this doesn't solve the problem since vesa_nolf gives me screen tearing. So this leaves me 2 options: 1....

Re: How To : One Unit Whole Blood with DosBox

You don't have to use that particular SVN build which seems to be causing the problem with music. You can increase vmemsize in any DosBox build in order to prevent the flickering. I think you're confusing "memsize" (=Amount of memory DOSBox) with "vmemsize" (=Amount of video memory). The latter doe...

Re: How To : One Unit Whole Blood with DosBox

Dimebog, I do not attempt to play Blood in a higher resolution than Blood's native resolutions. Unfortunately, the HUD flickering does occur, on my PC, when playing on 800x600. Regarding the music problem: I already tried fiddling with the MIDI settings in the dosbox conf. setting. But choosing "gen...

Re: How To : One Unit Whole Blood with DosBox

Greetings to all of you. Huge Blood fan for many years (probably around 1998) and I still believe that Doom, Duke Nukem 3D and Blood are some of the finest examples in FPS history. The atmosphere, level design, ... simply unmatched. The problem is... I'm having some troubles running Blood in dosbox....
