Ordeal Mod Version 2 fixes a lot of bugs that still plague the original game fully patched even with the Ordeal Mod Version 1 installed. The Mod also introduces all new features like controllable Demon Morphs, new lights and dynamic lights for Souls and CheckPoints, a lot of new original secrets, a multitude of new and balanced card unlocking conditions (usually two per level), new levels (based on MP architecture) with very good Painkiller gameplay, new HUDs to choose from and a generally improved level atmosphere. A new money system has been introduced.
The "Ordeal" difficulty is finally finished since the "Ordeal" difficulty in Version 1 of the Mod was merely a blueprint. The difficulty has been improved in every possible way and will bring new enemies, altered level parts and limited quicksaves plus all the other changes that the "Ordeal" difficulty had already made in Version 1 of the Mod.
Some of the changes made in Version 1 of the Mod regarding the Ordeal difficulty are: reduced Demon Morph time, no controllable Demon Morphs, Golden Cards last less, monsters are smarter, tougher, stronger and faster and only a few levels have quicksaves. This difficulty is dedicated to all faithful and hardcore Painkiller players.
You'll have to prove your worth to get to the "Ordeal" difficulty but the effort is well worth it. You'll be ready for it when you do!

The changes above are only a small (very small) part and those of you who are curious will check the Short Changelog and those who are really into seeing behind the scenes and details for every single change and fix, will check the Detailed Changelog.

The Mod fully supports Painkiller: Black Edition and the original Painkiller release with the addon Battle out of Hell patched to version 1.64 and will be available in English, Romanian, German, Polish, Spanish and Russian.

Ordeal Mod Version 2 requires that the Painkiller 1.64 copy you own be patched with Powermad 3.62 beforehand. The Mod archive comes with Powermad as well. DO NOT have any other Mods installed.

Check out the trailer below for some action and get a taste of some of the features that may or may not bring Painkiller BooH or Black Edition close to perfection.

After it steps in the sun it becomes vulnerable and starts bleeding. Then you can shoot it dead.

I discovered other copies of this Mod on several foreign trackers and sites. They generally come with the whole game and some CHANGED FILES AND IT ALSO LACKS THE IMPORTANT POWERMAD, THUS, CREATING BUGS. PLEASE DO NOT TRUST ANY OTHER DOWNLOAD SOURCE THAN THE ONE PROVIDED HERE. This is the official version.

I got painkiller reload 4.0 mod and found it had the pirated version of Painkiller: Black edition. I only want to get the mods myself. I own PKBE legitimately on Steam and don't want to support piracy. I hope this mod is a legal one (unlike PK reload)

Yes. Ordeal Mod V2 is originally distributed as a Mod not as a full game as it should be. Follow the link from one of my comments here to PkZone.org. That is the original Ordeal V2.

No, the weapon position is not adjustable. This is the new one.

Is there any hint, how to activate that mod? I have installed it in the default directory "Painkiller Ordeal Mod Version 2" and read all the *.pdfs. I have purged the savegame folder in the Painkiller directory. I have only seen that it must be started from "scratch". But was does that mean?

Ok, I will do my best to explain the steps.

NOTE: Delete all your Savegames and make sure you run a Mod free copy of Painkiller BooH (freshly installed if possible.

1) Install Painkiller Battle out of Hell or Painkiller: Black Edition, patch it to 1.64 (you need to install patches 1.61, 1.62 and 1.64 in this order).
If you have Painkiller: Black Edition it is ok (because it includes BooH) and I think it is already patched to version 1.64 (on Steam).
2) Install the PowerMad Mod version 3.62.
You can get all patches and Powermad from PkZone.org. Powermad also comes with Ordeal Mod V2.
Powermad must be installed inside the Painkiller - BooH or Painkiller: Black Edition root folder (contains a Data and a Bin folder).
3) Run the Ordeal V2 installer and direct it to install it also as Powermad, in the root Pk BooH folder.
4) To start from scratch you need to start a new game (Sign a pact). I recommend you start in Insomnia or Nightmare so that you can unlock cards.

PS: It's great that you read all the PDFs!
