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:

Wow! Much better than DOSBox.

This TC seems to be the closest thing we may ever get to a source port. Keep up the good work!

I guess we have all the effects required to recreate the maps. But we still need a lot of work with enemies' AI.
M210 will tell if he needs any help with the code.

We have all the maps converted with blud2b, but after converting we got only map geometry and sprites. We should recreate all the sounds, effects, doors, elevators from scratch.

Hmmm. This looks like a good time to dig into blud2b and make it more Duke3d export friendly. Whatever you had to redo by hand I could see how it was tagged in blood and then try to export it to the duke3d equivalent.

Not sure if it's possible. Some of the Blood effects don't exist in vanilla eduke. The others (like doors) are made completely differently and still need manual editing.

Found some old notes on the blood map "x" data. Also found a site that describes some of the blood specific mapping tricks in mapedit. Contemplating adding native blood map editing support to mapster32.
