A collection made by myself. I included the very best blood maps (from my point of view, obviusly). Only the very best of Blood Community! There's no history or plot, just pure action and blood.

You have 4 episodes to play + 8 Bloodbaths.

Aviable at Blood Hispano, Blood Repository, and Blood Freeminded.

cool, but I can never get those installers to work that are made by BME/ILMHB. Once they go through the process, they always boot me to a black screen

You need a fresh install of Blood for it to work. Not GOG or a hacked version.

You just drag the install file onto the dosbox emu icon.
or
Setup your dosbox frontend to launch the installer.

The pack works in GOG version too. I tested it several times.

The only difference you need extract archive directly as it is into GOG Games\One Unit Whole Blood and drop BLDCHR2.bat into GOG Games\One Unit Whole Blood\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe

It's prefered you change DOSBox options if you use SVN version with looping music:

machine=vesa_nolfb
captures=capture
memsize=63

To make it even more automatic like running GOG version by default, copy dosboxBlood_addon.conf rename to dosboxBlood_addon2.conf edit as following:

[autoexec]
# Lines in this section will be run at startup.

@ECHO OFF
mount C ".."
c:
cls
BLDCHR2.bat
exit

Copy and edit Cryptic Passage shortcut to reflect path to your new conf file for ex. "D:\GOG Games\One Unit Whole Blood\DOSBOX\DOSBox.exe" -conf "D:\GOG Games\One Unit Whole Blood\dosboxBlood.conf" -conf "D:\GOG Games\One Unit Whole Blood\dosboxBlood_addon2.conf" -noconsole -c exit

Now open BLDCHR2.bat and edit last part, basically adding just "exit":

DEL SOUNDS.rff
REN SOUNDS.bme SOUNDS.rff
DEL BLOOD.rff
REN BLOOD.bme BLOOD.rff
DEL BLDCHR2.ini
CLS
ECHO.
ECHO [40;37m ALL FILES RESTORED!
ECHO.
ECHO Installer by BME/ILMHB 2014
ECHO.
exit

Voila, no need to ALT+Tab and closing DOSBox manually. ;-P

Oh and btw hi to everyone, my first post, didn't see proper section. ;-)

About mapset itself: better compilation than Blood Lost Episodes. Even knowing they are just bunch of maps by different authors sense of continuation through episode is saved.

I don't know why but Village of Barovia constantly crashed my Blood, maybe it has something to do with these pick up shrooms or music?

EDIT. Well, no matter what it crashes over some time now when I tested level standalone.
