The FPS general is pretty much a Doom general and stuff like this is ignored sometimes, or at least it most probably is considering that thread had 400+ replies by now. I didn't see the Blood thread, sorry... I should've used ctrl+f but they weren't talking about this matter anyway, which is imo the greatest question at this moment, something that deserves the very sentence in the OP as the main topic. If you aren't interested just go on one of those threads you mentioned and don't bump this one, easy.

Low quality bait, you're literally playing yet another reimagination of a game, only this time is official. This doesn't mean however that it's good, actually, it's the other way around. It's not BloodCM mind you, but it's not that great either. I've been playing it all day and I'll gladly switch back to GDX... This thing is bugged and it doesn't feel, look and sound the same. But there's a lot more stuff to it, probably the worst of all is the AI...

What's a namesake got to do with anything. They didn't use Build specifically so they didn't have to adhere to any pre-established (most of all, unavailable to them) source code and they could write their own from scratch with modern libraries and not pay any royalty to Ken Silverman and shit. The most accurate description of Flesh Supply is a remake.

>> No.5563227

>>5563024
What's going on here is that apparently Warner Bros. owns the rights to Blood. And that means they charge a whole mint for the source code to be used at all. Let alone releasing it.

I guess the best Night Dive could do is get the rights to a KEX remaster. At least it uses the original files?

GGGManLives probably got an advanced copy of it for review purposes. I agree with him that it's amazingly fun and some things are incredibly convenient. But the fact of the matter is that it's not 100% accurate. The biggest problem though BY FAR is that it's having difficulty running mods. And until I can play any and every Blood mod with it I'm going to stick with One Unit Whole Blood.

01:00 There is A LOT of missing blood flying "particles" when I blow up the zombies. This used to be satisfying
01:00 Wrong sprite for mid-air explosions
01:05 What's with all the floating blood?
01:24 All the voxels are so horizontally stretched I almost can't reach the window with the pitchfork (also, what's with the wobbling of my char)
02:07 Cultists never make that sound
02:40 Look at that auto aim sticking my flare into a rat. That is impossible in vanilla Blood.
03:26 Showing wrong palette swap in the cultist gib animation (Thx Doruk)

Other: Zombies ignore the player after getting up from a "faked" death
Other: Cultists sometimes fire at... nothing
Other: Stone Gargoyles don't play pain sounds propertly

Other: Fanatic and Cultist voices are mixed
Other: Some sounds sound muffled while others just right, with higher sampling rate
Other: Reflective Shots is missing the soun echo effect
Other: Screen doesn' even turn red many of the times you take damage
Other: Stoned gargoyles use the full morph when awaken. Was Just 1-2 frames in 1.00, none later on.

I use plain CD audio because I like it a lot, but some guys will rightly say they prefer the midi version (which one was the very good one btw? I forgot). The game's music is often a lot more ambient than anything, but it's not like there is none, it's rather subtle. Some other times is very prominent, so I would suggest to search for those ones. On the top of my head I would say that the very first episode has an episode with that kind of music, which is The Dark Carnival.

I suggest you to go into the game folder and create a new one called simply maps or something like that, with all your usermaps inside it. Or else it becomes chaotic when you have like, 20 of them. Anyway, just go into said folder through the game (simply go to New Game > User Content), then into the death wish folder and finally select DW.INI; i think it's always a .ini the one you need to start the whole campaign

As he said >>5563945 btw anon is this your fist time with Blood? Because if that's the case you may need to play it as intended, jump a lot, run, crouch everytime it's needed (you'll dodge bullets this way albeit cultists may do the same), use weapons and ammo efficiently and most importantly use alt-fire wisely. I pretty much never use the primary fire of the shotgun, for example. Also, some enemies are more vulnerable to certain weapons than others... There's a lot more stuff to it, but this is the basics. If you already played this and didn't need any input, then I'm sorry and ignore this. Have fun anon.

Bought it now just to see how bad it is.
Jesus christ almighty I didn't even finished the first level. It's that shitty for me.
It doesn't feel like Blood at all with this BloodKEK. All the issues anons pointed out are true and there's probably even more. Haven't even tried the multiplayer because I don't care about it and the state of this BloodKEK made me care about MP even less.
I remember Kaiser bragging about how he's been dissasembling the game for years and how he knows shit. I was really thinking he'll make it really well because I liked all his previous works.
From awesome af Doom64EX to this downgrade of a sourceport.

BloodGDX... potential but the Java is shit meme might have something to it. I look around on the first episode and get acute instances of judder (running on 8th gen i5 and rx 580). I check my fps while this happens and it doesn't move, it's a locked 60fps (using Vsync just for testing, because it should, regardless of input lag, be absolutely consistent). I think this could be a frame timing issue, though it still reports 16ms.

B)Kex engine besides its autistic bugs is better than OG build by a mile.

C)Before some autist shits about the music, they cant put soundfront compatible midi legally due to Roland being a bunch of jews asking for more money, so grow up a spine and use the fucking CD music as anyone back then DID because by the time when the game was released EVERYONE had pc's with CD rom audio support by default.

That's why it has an internal ticrate to prevent that.
Playing through dosbox ignores that since it does not give access.to actual processor, emulating it instead, which ends up with the game thinking it runs at proper rate even if its not.

Just play it at low difficulty. This isnt Doom where you need to play the hardest difficulty because the lowest ones were gimped since they were made with keyboard only aiming in mind, or because the low difficulties were for people with lower end computers that couldnt handle so many monsters in Doom's shitty engine.
Lower difficulties in Blood are actually suitable for modern standards. Now sit down.

I don't understand Kaiser, if he's gonna change shit like sounds and balance, why not just fix the game's native bugs and make a complete overhauled version? a true remaster that doesn't strive for accuracy but rather tries to bring the game to 2019 standards.
Instead we get something inbetween that doesn't really know what it wants to be.
It makes enough changes to make it obviously inaccurate, but not enough to be considered a "remaster" or updated version of the game.

Fresh Supply is fucking great for its custom difficulty feature. This is something that should have been in the original game.

Difficulty settings were always a flaw in Blood since anything above Lightly Broiled ranges from tedious to downright impossible if you don't know every secret.

Absolutely based.

So why was BloodEX released in this unfinished buggy mess of a state? Was Atari or Night Dive just wanting to get it out the door because of all the progress being made to BloodGDX and NBlood recently, and they were paying Kaiser to remake it in KEX so they figured they'd cut their losses and get it out there and get a return on investment before the mainstream boomer fps audience started using their old copies of Blood with the other far more accurate reverse engineered ports?

It is kinda weird how after all these fucking years of people making garbo reverse engineering attempts (and non-attempts like ZBlood) and hoping for source code releases there's 2 mostly accurate ones (GDX & NBlood) and the official remake release of Fresh Supply all in the same window.

Night Dive is a guilty of a number of different crimes. Here are the major ones.

1. KEX Edition is essentially a collection of free mods that had existed for nearly two years. SVKaiser gathered them all up, slapped KEX Engine on it and resold it as a new product. There's very very little in the Fresh Supply that wasn't already out there, and most of it is stuff you don't want (like bugged FOV slider).

2. The remaster didn't sell so well and the original was still far outselling it, even twenty years after their release, so Night Dive had EVERY DRM-free digital distributor stop selling the original and ONLY sell the Fresh Supply. If you want to buy a digital copy of the original now on GOG, it's "bundled" into the Fresh Supply. Now these scumbags can claim sales from people just wanting to buy the original as their own.

3. The infamous 600+ bugs on launch. The game is still riddled with bugs (as even a perfunctory glance over their forums show) but the fact that it took Kaiser around two years for them to get a game that had been working fine for 20 years to reach playability after launch is telling of their wild incompetence.

4. This is where we get to the ones that really piss people off. Night Dive couldn't just remaster the game, they had to fuck with the content too. New dialogue for existing enemies like cultists was written in to make the characters more progressive and leftist friendly. Night Dive shills will argue that "adding content isn't changing content XDDD" but it is when the new content changes the core personalities of the existing characters. This is in addition to removing gibs and nerfing fire, discouraging people to use some of the most fun weapons in the game.

5. Doesn't use the motherfucking Build Engine on which the original was built on and that gave the game half of it's feel.

They should allow customization of as much as is realistically possible in the game. They've already done this with customizable difficulty (which is great, and one of the best things about the remaster in its current form). There's no reason why they shouldn't do it with gibs.

If he had any real opinion he wouldnt have backpedalled on it so hard the moment he began losing subs.

I do watch a few people whose opinions I don't always agree with, because they can present their reasoning for those opinions. That has never been a problem to me.
Examples: DWT - he's an ass and may be a retard some times (esp. when it comes to RTS and RPG), but most of the time he can explain why he thinks the way he does
Razorfist - some times his opinions are retarded, but he's at least entertaining in his rants about them.
and some others who are not relevant to videogames

Stop projecting and thinking that everyone is as narrowminded as you are.

>Civvie knows his BLOOD
Not really. he's dogshit at the game. the things he pointed out in his video would be glaringly obvious to any real blood fan and/or anyone with some semblance of non-retardation (which /vr/ is mostly severely devoid of, being that it's full of a bunch of doom babby retards). I feel civvie's "love" for blood is exaggerated, kind of like a redditor desperately trying to flaunt his "gamer cred" because he thinks it's the "cool" thing to do. regardless he did do the right thing here so credit to him. civvie circle jerks a lot on the blood discord with the eduke32/build engine faggots, and they knew this thing sucked.

Anyway, it sure shows how pathetic this board is in that the only way most of the faggots here can discern whether or not Bloodkeks is good is purely on the basis of e-celeb opinion. "gggmanshills says this obvious pile of shit is real blood, so it must be!" "welp, civvie says it's not, so gggman is wrong!". then you also have the idiots claiming this Blood-wannabe abomination must be better than nblood/gdx just because it's "official", calling the much superior ports "bootlegs", when this entire "port" is a made in taiwan shitass knock-off. fucking shitass board.

There are two good open source recreation efforts. At this point this official release doesn't really matter as it doesn't offer anything new, except for being a possible introduction to the game and community.
The only thing that Blood really needs nowadays is a good map editing tool that current users of Mapedit would be able to easily pick up, while not being too hard on newcomers.

Reading this whole thread I'm not even more confused about which way would be best to play this game.....No one can agree on a port. It sounds like GDX is the way but the mouse and colors are fucked up but......at this point I'm more confused.

It's basically like ZDoom vs PrBoom. Different ports for different things
For someone who just wants to get into the game easy way NBlood is probably the best and it looks more authentic with software renderer. Multiplayer works better too.
GDX is perfectly fine though and has some advantages like easier addon setup, but I don't think that is something that a new player really needs.

Actually, it makes it less likely.
Kaiser and his team will have to move onto their next projects soon and fully reproducing Build in his engine isn't the easiest of jobs in the first place. They really have time to fix only the most glaring issues here and later maybe some more if they will decide to work overtime.
NBlood and GDX are passion projects by actual fans that also are opensourced. And even if Nuke.YKT and M210 will burn out and drop the development, someone else will be able to pick it up. With NBlood it's almost guaranteed.
