So I just started playing Blood on lightly boiled for the first time in my life and these brown faggots are just the absolute worse.

I thought it was a meme that you had to memorize enemy placement, but it's so fucking true.

>Open a door and a cultist reacts immediately and blasts you for 40 hp
>have to approach every corner crouched like it's a tactical shooter because brown cultists have a fuck you in their pocket and .03 seconds reaction time
>Some rooms literally open a wall behind you with two or three of these faggots facing you
>designers are constantly hiding them behind corners, pillars, and other shit to catch you if you don't toss dynamite around every corner once you hear the cultist chant
>not even kidding that every time I threw dynamite around a corner I heard a cultist scream

Like I just finished Episode One and it wasn't impossible or anything but I maybe died twenty times just due to these fuckers. Like not even kidding these fucking shotgun cultist are literally the worst enemies I've encountered so far and you meet them in E1M1. This is like if Doom had you encounter the chaingunners starting in E1M1 by hiding them around corners.

I seriously hope you're not playing via Fresh Supply because besides the bugs and different feel, that version is toned down a lot regarding difficulty, If you're having problems with that one you may as well avoid this game. If you're playing through BloodGDX or NBlood instead, just git gud. There are some ways to not get instakilled, like crouching and using weapons effectively, for example.

Longtime Blood fan (and ultra-obscure non-celebrity youtube channel) Austin Adams is doing a series of videos to demonstrate the differences (mostly regarding the things that are either glitches, weird mistakes, or just outright laziness) between Blood in its original form and the remaster ("Fresh Supply"). His first part is out and I would highly recommend watching this if you are interested in seeing the issues currently with the remaster, as his video is extremely well done. No pun intended.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVzT6NSXpek

>> No.5571720 [DELETED] 

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.

An ex-pro counter-strike player has been playing Blood on twitch and it's pretty entertaining.
He thinks he's playing on the second highest difficulty but it's actually extra crispy since Fresh Supply has that new custom difficulty at the bottom. Impressive since I've always found extra crispy way too annoying although I've only played DOS Blood.
He beat the gargoyle bosses at the end of the first episode with the pitchfork since he doesn't know any secrets and is basically always out of ammo

Fucking Doomlets, ive played through the game for the first time a few weeks back and never had ammo issues. Are you firing 5 flares into every cultist you see or something? Because the DOT of a single shot will kill any of them that arent the new cultists added in Post Mortem.
1 for a cultist
2 for zombies
2 for butchers.
Im assuming you are playing on well done. If you are doing lightly broiled its 1 less flare for zombies.

Originally Blood can not handle diagonal movement on its own, and handles it as vertical and horizontal mouse movement. It also can't do both types of movement on same tic, so instead it does diagonal movement over 2 tics in a jagged pattern.
This results in a noticably wonky and wobbly aiming, and feels really unpleasant.

Both of the expansions are phenomenal. Death Wish is even better. But you have to understand that Death Wish, if viewed as a separate release, would be one of the greatest games ever made.

No they don't respond to sound, but they respond to you peaking around corners if you want to bait them, if you're fast enough hitscanners won't hit you. Except if they are really close but you should throw alt-fire dynamite first in that case.
If you have to reload 150 times per level (even 20 is pushing it, there aren't a lot of levels with that many parts tough parts, don't reload each time you take damage) it's time to lower the difficulty and git gud instead of crying about the game. Or play something else.

It actually is tricky in a non-bsp engine

However Kaiser has no excuse since line portals are feature that is used allover the place in Build engine games for all purposes. Non-euclidean space is just one specific use of it that is rarely used, but still familliar to any Duke/Blood modder, and was even used in one official map - a secret level of Lunar Apocalypse is a 720 degree ring loop.

Had he implemented portals properly this would not have happened, but he used a simpler method of just converting BSPtree into 3D environment throwing the portals out of equation completely.

And this is the case where it turned around and bitten him in the bottom

>weird undocumented shit
Nothing about this is weird or undocumented. The ROR implementation varies from title to title, but the original BUILD creator was involved in every instance. Kaiser is just not up to the task and the statement that it's reverse engineered from original code is a blatant lie.

>doom on nightmare is completely unfair if it's your first run.
Well it was added in a patch as a joke, basically as a "Try this, you fags." towards people who complained the game was too easy on Ultra-Violence.
They never seriously expected people would really play it, and most never would, so there was little thought to fairness, aside from double ammo pickups.

>If you know the map/locations then it's manageable
Sort of. The original maps weren't at all balanced for the changed monster behavior, so you'll have plenty of situations where the monsters are way faster than the mapper accounted for, and you still have the monsters respawning every 30 seconds, which is another problem.

If you want to see some insane pro-plays, look at this guy speedrunning Plutonia on Nightmare! mode:

They really are not.
On other difficulties, the pinkie is deadly in groups, or if you're too careless, but on Nightmare!, a lone pinkie is absolute rape, because he's so incredibly fucking fast, you don't have the time to do a double-take and handle the pinkie as you deal with another group of monsters, you can't really easily keep backing away from him.
It's like they're moving at Benny Hill speed, while your speed is unchanged.

They catch up to you way faster though, it's really easy to get cornered before you realize it.
It's not like with other difficulties where you can just trivially circlestrafe even a bunch of them, and they can't ever catch up to you if there's any space around you.

Like you may dodge one, two, even three, but more can easily move while you're trying to dodge, and they catch up so fast after each attempt to bite.

I generally try to avoid it, but on Nightmare! they're twice as fast.
It's overall a less easy to predict way of playing, and there's genuine reasons very few people have managed to do full no-death runs of Final Doom on it.

I'm not saying it's not possible (and I'm not saying pinkies are the lone reason for difficulty), it certainly can be done, and has been done, but you gotta be real good, and I'll freely admit that I'm just not an elite player.

No actually.

Been on a run of classic fps lately and its been so fun. Something triggered in me after being bored to tears with some modern games. And I already played Thief 1\2 a thousand times.

Finished Hexen 2 and Quake, had to get a walkthrough for that motherfucker. playing Duke, because I never got to finish it 100% back in the day.

Also want to play Sin again also didnt finish it, and try Red Faction which is one of the few I never actually played.

I would say Wolfenstein 3D in particular has that;
>cartoony and stylized graphics with lots of color
>all bosses are simply just fucking huge dudes with big guns, regardless of if they're supposed to be like superhuman monsters or not (Schabbs and Hitler are basically the same size as the Ubermutant or Angel Of Death, for instance)
>lots of blood in death animations, particularly in boss death animations, which will sometimes include the Deathcam (TM)
>weird enemies like three-armed murder mutants, and the really not explained 'fake Hitlers' (I've heard some people say they're supposed to be puppets on strings with flamethrowers)
>some of the music is pretty good
>"Get Psyched!"
On just the visuals, it's delightfully stylized, I love how it looks, and it has a wonderful tone.

You also have aspects of gameplay which were very typical of the times, how the game has all this vestigial arcade stuff that's just there, because you simply just had lives and a score counter in action games in 1992.
I love the style, I love shooting Gnatzees for points, finding hidden treasures, eating food items for health, all of that, but looking at the gameplay itself, it lacks so much variety and complexity.
>enemies are like 95% dudes with hitscan guns, some of the bosses use physical projectiles
>weapon variety is knife, pistol, machinegun, and faster machineguns, the guns share their 99rd ammo pool, there are physical projectile weapons in the base game, everything behaves extremely conventionally
>architecture is extremely limited, there are only 90 degree walls of fixed increments and no height variation, you can't have elevated features or stairs or anything
As a result of simplicity like this, there's not a lot you can actually do and still have novel level design or enemy encounters, and I can't help but feel that Wolfenstein 3D in its original form basically runs out of novelty and interesting gameplay, really by the time you're done with the second episode.

Software renderer is also a piece of shit that stutters on shit being blown up
Movement is just wrong, AI behaves erratically and wierd sound/AI/Gibs glitches present throughout

Play BloodGDX, for it's been out the longest and about as close to DOS as it's gonna get (minus sofwtare renderer). Mouse aim is also better without distortion (that is actually DOS accurate on nBlood's part)

Oh yeah, and depsite chucking well over 200 hours into Blood over the years, Extra Crispy still wrecks my shit, even in co-op what with the lag.

This, the game forces you to vary up your ammo strategies and get good with dynamite.
