Bloodstone: The Journey Home is a third person role-playing total conversion of Valve’s Half Life 2 - Episode One, using the Source engine. In this modification, Khrinz, a common farm boy is plunged into an unknown world of magic and deceit, on the brink of an unstoppable invasion by a technologically advanced race.

The player must lead our hero through the mysterious land of Darynia in search of the fabled bloodstone, a powerful gem that has the ability to create portals to other planes of existence, whilst also discovering their innate magical powers, so that they may defend themselves from the sinister and evil creatures of the world.

This power can either be used to fuel mystical and powerful spells of the arcane, or infuse deadly weapons with the force of the elements. As the player grows in experience, more potent spells and abilities are unlocked, to use against the ever increasing number of enemies.

Darynia is a fully realized fantasy world where the player will become immersed in an enriching storyline, driving the player’s actions, and pushing their emotions to the limit.

It’s not the blood that courses through your veins that defines what type of person you are; it’s the decisions you make, on the journey of life.
- Nienna, Princess of the Graymir Elves.

Hello everybody,

the time has come, "Bloodstone - The Journey Home" is now available for download:

Bloodstone - The Journey Home

I'm not going to talk much about whats going on in the game. Just go ahead, play it and tell us what you think about it.

Anyone who wants to see us in action, can visit us this Saturday, 7th of June, at the Cube Gallery in Manchester.

Eventhough this mod is meant for Episode 1, you can play it without owning Episode 1. Please check our Tutorial on how to do that.

We are proud of what we've produced and we hope you like it too,

So, after I believe a source engine update or something. This and another of the mods I have aren't working anymore and are now giving me "Unable to load c:\program files\steam\steamapps\NAME\source sdk base\bin\filesystem_steam.dll". I checked and the file is where it said it was, I tried removing it and validating it but it still doesn't work. Anyone got any idea what to try to fix it up?

I was having fun on this mod, and when I get far, randomly when I go to another area, after the map changes, it just crashes, and when I relaunch the mod, when I reload the game, instead of me being where I left off, instead, when it reloads, it just shows me standing in an area at the bottom of the screen (same place u see in the main screen u see after u launch the game from Steam where there's the main menu), and the camera views in the air where I can look around and when I look down I can see myself from high above, and I can't even move!! I can only look around in the background that appears on the game's main menu screen!! I even enable cheats and enable "noclip", and I'm still stuck (even the camera is stuck in noclipping mode)!! So I have no choice but to start the game all over again, and I did, and I got even further, and after 2 hours after killing those 2 characters I had to arrest, the game just crashed after I exited the sewer, and I was ******!! So I looked the the gameinfo.txt file, and the app id was already at 215, so the text file is just fine. So are there any patches that can make this mod stable enough for players to complete the whole game without it crashing? And is there a patch that lets players load it properly to where they left off instead of the load game feature spawning them into the game's main menu screen background?

If you crashed unfortunately you cannot load your previous game properly. Only option is to play the game all over again and save game by copying the autosave.dat and savedata.dat files onto your desktop (or where ever) every once in a while or everytime you change map. The files can be found in your BloodStone game folder (usually Steam\steamapps\sourcemods\Bloodstone). After copying, the next time you crash, paste the autosave and savedata from your desktop into your BloodStone game folder and click "yes to all" to overwrite current files in the BloodStone folder.
Launch the game then press F7 and there you go, hey! ho!

Crashing corrupts the save files which results in you "standing in an area at the bottom of the screen", according to the youtube link.

And what the error said was "hl2.exe has stopped working". I forgot to mention that. Well, I hope someone replies soon. Thanks in advance.
