r0011.exe
Monolith Productions
2.66M Registered v1.00 -> v1.11 patch

This should make any registered CDs of the full game to
Blood Version 1.11  If not use individual patchs.

This patch also updates the mapedit and artedit tools.

 

r0010.exe
Monolith Productions
2.61M Registered v1.00 -> v1.10 patch

 
pcd11.exe
Monolith Productions
642 Plasma Pack v1.10 -> v1.11 patch

This should make any registered CDs with this pack installed to
Blood Plasma Version 1.11  If not use individual patchs.

This patch also updates the mapedit and artedit tools.

The Plasma Pack CD was released as an early 1.11 version of the game, and not the 1.10 version like we thought. The 1.11 version included on the CD is not the final revision of 1.11. You can tell if you have the early version of 1.11 by looking at the date when you start the game. If the date says, August 19th, 1997, then you have the old version of 1.11. Download this pCD11.exe patch to bring Blood Plasma to the most recent version available. If the date says September 23rd, 1997, then you have the correct 1.11 version of Blood.

134 Special Edition v1.0 patch

If you have Blood Special Edition (censored) v1.0 CD then it is a slightly modified version of the original game. Elements that may be considered "sensitive" have been removed, resulting in a game environment that may be more suitable for younger players. If you wish to restore the game to its original state, you may apply this patch to put all the Blood back in your game. Important Note - Once you have updated your Bloodless (censored) version of Blood to be the full blood filled version, also download r0011.exe the Blood Registered 1.11 patch above to stay current.

 

 

Registered CD 3DFX (Alpha) Patches

* Attention *
3DFX.EXE was released in it's alpha stage. It does not support voxels (it will use sprites instead), it evokes visual glitches (skybox's won't be seamless and status bar is scaled wrong), and suffers from memory leaks. Voodoo RUSH and Voodoo 2 are not supported!

* Important * Windows 95/98 Users.
If you receive an error message that says, "fatal error: unable to load Glide DLL", right-click on the 3DFX.exe file and then choose properties. Click on the MEMORY tab at the top. At the bottom of the screen is a value called “MS-DOS Protected Mode”. In that field, type in "65535" and then click "OK". Now, just double-click on the 3DFX.exe file to start the game and play!

Blood in 3dfx
Arjan
1.98 The batch file I created must be used to start up blood in 3dfx. You MUST already have the 3dfx patch installed. Not intended for OUWB.

The batch file will work with voodoografics and with voodoo2 boards.
There still is a bug with the voodoo2 board, you may get an error
which says that it ran out of texture memory for the current textures...
 
dgVoodoo
v1.50 Beta2 (released: 06.03.2007)

DEGE
351 For Windows 95/98/Me/XP Only for DOS applications with or without the use of a DOS emulator. It requires also the Blood 3DFX patch and NOLFB installed(if without DOSBox)... See the RTCM downloads: general-tools-dosxp and look into the "old methods" section for tools. Read the RTCM Online documents setup-windows for sound on XP.

dgVoodoo is a Glide Wrapper that implements Glide 2.11 and Glide 2.43 API by using DirectX.
dgVoodoo provides support to run Windows-based and DOS-based
applications (for example 3DFXBlood) using Glide, and it can also
emulate VESA 2.0 for DOS applications.

Please check the official homepage
for newer versions and (in case of questions) forum links.

See Glidos site for DL.
For Windows 95/98/Me/XP Only for DOS applications without the use of a DOS emulator. It requires also the Blood 3DFX patch and NOLFB installed... See the RTCM downloads: general-tools-dosxp and look into the "old methods" section for tools. Read the RTCM Online documents setup-windows for sound on XP.

This is a glide wrapper, Blood required special programming in Glidos, which gives better results than on an actual voodoo card. With a voodoo card textures are smoothed only in one direction, whereas Glidos gives true bilinear interpolation.

The test version displays a spinning logo on the screen, when you play. You must purchase Glidos to get rid of the logo, it's only $10 bucks.

How to play:
First install blood and make sure, it runs. Install the 3dfx patch.
Install NOLFB. It's enough, to place the files from nolfb.zip in your
blood directory. Glidos will do the rest. Install Glidos and when you launch it, select the game Blood. Then click on the adjust...- button and in the game details menu, under Executable fill in the Path to executable field the path to the 3DFX.EXE in your blood directory. Save your changes and start the game.

Cryptic Passage Patches

39.6 Install patch for Cryptic Passage

This program handles all fixes and corrections to the Cryptic Passage Installer and GAMER programs. It corrects the problem with installing and no Windows directory is found, having a version of Blood higher than 1.02, and the crashing bugs related to Pentium II and other fast processors.

Instructions on this upgrade: Install Blood, version 1.0. Install Cryptic Passage. Cryptic will want to upgrade Blood to version 1.02. Follow the direction to do that. Now, apply the Cryptic Passage patch, CPPATCH.ZIP. Then, apply the Blood r0210.exe patch. Finally, apply the Blood r1011.exe patch to bring Blood up to the current version of 1.11 non-Plasma.

OLD Cryptic Passage Runtime Fix
Compiled by ?
8.67 This patch is kinda unnecessary, but added here for completeness sake. Fixes your CP EXE files so they run on faster computers if you have gotten the runtime error. This is only for the older version installer and EXE CP files. See (listed above) for updated CP EXE files that make this fix unnecessary.

Copy the files from your CD and dump these files into the same folder and run the batch files.

Blood Roland SC-55 Music Pack
Converted by Brandon Blume, aka MusicallyInspired
22.7M MIDI Converted to OGG on a SC-55.

The Roland SC-55 was the standard in the 90s for computer game soundtracks. It was the top of the line. The absolute best you could buy. Nearly every game supported it and preferred its many enhancements over the simple General MIDI standard. They not only supported it but most game soundtracks were composed with it and as a result their best gaming experiences were meant to be made with an SC-55.
 

BOOBTEAM
Boobshlt
133 This is a patch for playing team games on no flag maps or custom maps. There was a watermark that covered red team's score. Extract that to your blood directory and replace tiles0008 with that one.

 

Blood Sound Blaster Live! fix
Kurt
17.2 This is a patch for Blood that prevents crashes of Sound Blaster Live! and PCI cards caused by an effect when you pick up/use a couple of the powerups. Echo crash, also disables reverb. Do not use this patch unless you know you need it.

What is does:
All it does is search Blood.exe for (Hex) "C1 E0 02 85 D2 75 6F", and replaces it with "C1 E0 02 85 D2 90 90". Run it again, and it will let you reverse this. It worked for me, and with a bit of luck it should work with any version of the executable.

 

Blood Echo Remover
Jarmo "Daedolon" Kylmäaho
24 This little program removes echo from Blood that causes Blood to crash with PCI sound cards. Also disables reverb. Do not use this patch unless you know you need it.
