I started this on January 14, 2008, with the goal of reimplementing Blood (by Monolith software) on eDuke32 port, with which it shares the engine. That requires converting all Blood resources to Duke3d format and recreating the missing game mechanics. The idea of remaking Blood went to me when I tried to have a Cooperative game with friends. I didn't find a version of Blood which would run on modern computers, so I decided to remake it myself. At first, I wanted to remake just maps, leaving Duke3d mechanics untouched. Later on, I read about eDuke32 port, which offers reach script extensions and thus more !stuff! for port and total conversions. The first thing I did was recreating the Blood HUD under eDuke, and I managed to make it perfectly identical. Seeing the power eDuke32 scripts offer, I decided to proceed with full conversion. This site lets you keep track of the project, latest news are available here. Here's some screeshots:

Main differences between Blood and Crossmatching

Design/Concepts Tutorial 4 comments

E1M4
You can't use any zombie head in "Kick the Head" attraction. Only three heads in front of the attraction.

E1M5
If you choose the wrong door in the room with 3 doors, the exit will be locked until the cannons stop firing.

E1M6
Cannons fire randomly after picking up Fire key.

E1M7
Crouching won't help you avoid Cheog's and gargoyles' attacks.

E2M4
You can't finish level without the Moon Key. It's probably a bug in Blood that allows you to crouch under the fence at the end of the level.

E2M5
Completely different way to reach the super secret.
You can't lock yourself in the underground tunnel.

E2M7
You don't need Boots of Jumping to pass the section after the presses.

Very good. Just need to tweak some bits, like zombies rising more smoothly, and the dynamite drops should be a little bit in front of the player. (so you can dynamite drop on the barrel in front of you)

Great Stuff. If you finish the campaign, iron out the kinks, and get rid of all the Duke Nukem 3D bits then I'll probably retire my copy of the original DOS game and play this instead.

Really Great mod. Looking forward to you guys completing episode 4. Would you guys work on the official addons Plasma Pack and Cryptic Passage later? Or would you offer a tutorial on how to port user maps over? This would be a great Renaissance for Blood development!

I think I will work on Plasma and Cryptic Passage...maybe I will do it)
Im not planning make a tutorials for mapeditor, because eduke32 has different system of moving sectors and special sprites...it's very hard to understanding

It seems much easier to hit and Kill cultists from far away with the shotgun in Bloodcm than Blood. Can you please look into this issue?

BloodCM will never support original Blood maps, because its a eDuke32, which support duke3d custom maps only
