I liked Blood.
I can't tell from the site what BloodTC is though. :(
This is a port of Blood assets to use the eDuke32 engine. Or another way to put it, it's a total conversion of eDuke32 to make it look and play exactly like Blood.
This is good news. I've never been able to play Blood properly, due to source code being unavailable to public (thus no ports) and getting low framerates through DOSBox. Hope the guy behind this does not abandon such a time-consuming project.
Never played blood when it came out.
This is pretty cool. :)

Can't Launch It
Lots of errors. Sound for one
Is Anybody Playing This?
If so how did you launch it
double clicked on bloodtc.exe
left the command line arguments alone and clicked 'play bloodtc'.
then selected the graphics modes and such and clicked 'start'
there is some bug with the gui though. it periodically resizes and then the hud elements don't line up. also it flickers sometimes too.
everything else runs fine though. blood is hilarious, i feel sad I missed it when it came out.
I did that too but got several errors and couldn't launch it. Using windows xp-sp3. Don't know if that matters. I have the original blood 1 and 2 and it was a blast for sure
Did you extract it into the duke3d folder? I extracted everything into it's own folder, and not as a duke3d mod.
Do you have to have duke 3d installed? Maybe that's my problem. I thought it was a stand alone mod.
I ran it as completely stand alone so I don't think that's the problem. I thought maybe you had tried to run it as a mod.
BloodTC is update with the first two episodes complete.
thanks, the first episode was really well done!
I'm getting so much slowdown with this TC, any ideas what it could be? I'm running pretty much default settings except resolution is 1280x800.
Tried polymer but the game doesnt boot at all. The game boots without it but runs slow.
Thanx To The Autor Of Mod
never had the chance to play that game
just one question, how to increase the fov value?
geforce 800m I think. It's pretty good, it can play crisis.
BloodCM is updated again, with 3rd episode
This might be the only way to get blood running well
hmmm download doesn't work... something about not being available on any mirrors?
anyway, this is awesome, and you are awesome for doing it.
It Didn't Work For Me Either
though it did eventually, just refresh periodically as it suggests and it will let you though eventually.
cool, guess I just didn't have enough patience. :)
just played this new version and it feels really faithful. There's still some work, there's no alt fire mode (I really miss this!), the jump height and air control feel a bit different to the original game.
Something I would love to see is when you die you still have the same weapons as the first load into the map, I know this isn't faithful to Blood but I always saw it as a bug not a feature. Also, swinging doors can crush you to death, I got insta-killed by a swinging door.
All in all though I am super impressed. My earlier comment in 2013 saying the game runs slow I was running on an intel 4000 graphics chip. Dunno if this would still run slow as I am now running a GTX 970.
There is Alt fire mode, you just have to bind special fire
and Use the eduke32.exe from here
Episode 1-5 of Bloodcm is now completed.
Love this tc
He is also doing an reverse engineering port that can actually read Blood's data
this, on the other hand, is pathetic.
Atari and Warner Bros. being a bag of dicks.
No Mention On Either...
Company in that link you posted?
I hope a proper version of XLEngine for Blood comes out one day :/
yeah, my point wasn't about who owns
blood, but the fact that there has been an organized effort to get the source code that has been unsuccessful (sadly). If you're not gonna release the source, at least make a proper port! This would make at least 10 people very happy.
This Is Great News
Though dosbox is great, it can be slow when running 3D FPS games like Blood. With a proper port, we can enjoy all those user-made content like mods, episodes, maps, etc, in addition to being able to run the game in higher resolution with modern control schemes blah blah.
BloodCM Is Still #1 For Me
The first version of BloodGDX has been released, so this is the first source port for Blood:
Will try to remember to download later!!
