Patching Blood problems (retail 1.0 to 1.11)

Post by BoneofFear » Aug 11th, 2009, 06:15

I seem to be having a problem patching my retail install of Blood with the 1.11 patch (r0011.exe from Filefront) keeps giving me this error when I run it in Command Console or DosBox 0.73.
error ept0009: Invalid Patch File C:\Progra~1\Classi~1\Blood\r0011.exe
anyone else had this problem before?

I haven't tried this with Dosbox before. Give it a shot with Command Prompt.

That means you have the wrong version of the patch (or the game, depending how you look at it). There should be a guide on the Posty site.

We have a complete list of all Blood patches ever made:
http://postmortem.edgegaming.com/?page=mm_files

Downloads are down for the moment, but it should give you an idea what patch to use. Your issue sounds like the executable file is either broken or falsely named.... Or you didn't really confirm your Blood version properly.

I actually fixed it using the polish (easy) way out.By installing the OWU Blood version in a seperate folder and using that (along with bMouse) instead.At least now I can use both versions of the game now :D
