Death Wish 1.5 for Blood is in development!

Death Wish 1.5 for Blood is currently being developed to enhance the multiplayer experience. Co-op mode will go much more smoothly thanks to a few updates.

Item Triggers are now 1-Shot

Keys / Items that trigger events will not trigger the event again if that item respawns. Certain collectables that unlock pathways (like the Black Boxes in DWe2m6 are set to never respawn).

Opened Pathways

Doors that block player backtracking will eventually reopen to allow teammates who were left behind to catch up. Even if the door/wall does not reopen, a teleporter or spare key will be revealed. This also solves the problem of teammates who perish while holding a key that is now unreachable by others.

This spare key is made available after the train pulls in when playing Co-op since the original is no longer accessible.

Checkpoints

Hate playing catch-up? DW1.5 will have a checkpoint system wherein reaching certain points in a mission will open up a teleporter or teleport-station near the player spawn-point, allowing teammates who are killed to return to the action quickly.

dw15 1

This checkpoint becomes available as soon as someone enters the base in the distance. Players who respawn won't have to run all the way across the snowy field again.

dw15 2

Sometimes a level will contain a checkpoint station. This could include 2 or more teleporters that open up in sequence or a set of multiple pathways that are always available. This station from DWe2m8 has 3 teleporters that lead to different sections of The Black Tower. At first only red is available, then the others open up as players progress.

dw15 5

Another station sample, this time from DWe3m3.


When a checkpoint is reached, a confirmation message will pop up. This message will only appear when playing Co-Op mode.

So what about Single Player?

No, I didn't add new levels this time. I made a lot of areas look nicer and fixed some technical issues, but the single-player experience is still similar the most recent build of DW1.4. If I saw something I wanted to touch up while adding Co-Op stuff I addressed it, but all the biggest changes in this version are multiplayer-related. That said, if you want the best Death Wish has to offer for single player mode, you'll still want to have DW1.5.

DWe3m1's alternate dimension gets a facelift.


Bloodbath

I am still gauging the interest in this, but I was considering including some of my deathmatch (aka "Bloodbath") levels in this update, with an eye towards making sure they are up to the production standard of the single player campaign. Let me know if you'd be interested!

One of several never-released Bloodbath maps. I may even make some new ones!


When?

The Co-op mode changes are almost complete. If I include Bloodbath levels I may release on Halloween again, which should give me time to make sure the BB content looks nice. If not, I'll probably be releasing sooner. Shoot me a message or leave a comment if you have any questions or suggestions. Otherwise, keep checking back for more info!

Just finished this in BloodGDX. 10/10. Awesome work, you just made me happy to play again this game with this whole new add-on. I can't thank you enough. Level design and history: perfect. 10/10

I've got the levels into BloodGDX just fine, but is there any way to play them in proper order (e.g. DWE1M1 > DWE1M2 > etc.), automatically, keeping weapons/health/etc. in BloodGDX, or am I just going to have to load each level manually?

Nevermind! Figured it out. Of course I manage it five minutes after asking about it despite taking a good hour beforehand...

For reference, or just for anyone else who can't figure it out in the future, you go to the user content option then select DW.ini. Then you can select your preferred DW episode from there.

Is it true that there is a difference in cutscenes in this mod? The latest version seems to have less exposition. While that's something a lot of people might prefer, I always thought they were neat and impressive to see.

Yes, the 1.4 build has new cutscenes that are much more succinct.

BloodGDX 0.780 fixed graphics glitch in E2M8 but there is still problem at the end of E2M1 goo.gl/qb6AkT . Could not replacing slope with flat surface help in this case?

It's a GDX problem, not a Death Wish problem. Everything works fine in DOSBox, GOG Blood, etc.

Yes, according to M210 it is a problem with polymost renderer in BloodGDX. This is probably impossible to fix without a new renderer, otherwise M210 would already make it. But creating of new renderer will take a very long time, so some sort of temporary patch for Death Wish on map side would be helpful (if it is doable and not too demanding as was the case of E2M8).

I think it may be the length of the sector wall that's the problem and not the slope. I'm going to break it up with some vertices and see if that fixes it.

Great, that sounds promising. :-)

Amazing mod.
Out of the 30 levels I think there maybe only 1 or 2 I didn't like as much. Otherwise it's solid all the way through.

There is an amazing variety of environments all with different well executed atmospheres and interesting well thought layouts.

Gameplay is always fun and health-ratio is pretty much perfect in every map.
There is also some neat effects here and there and tons of secrets to find in each level.

A must play for any fan of Build engine games.
