Blood Dosbox Launcher For Xp and Vista

#121

Skulldog. I just stumbled upon the PC Download of Blood off of Atari's site (age-gated). Will there be an update to support Atari's download of Blood?

Only if it is DRM free. Did you buy it? And if so, does it run on dosbox?

Nope. I didn't buy it since I already have the GOG.com and the Physical CD, so there's no reason for me buying it off of the Atari store. It was a "what if" scenario if someone bought Blood: OUW off of the store from Atari. Then decides to use the launcher w/ it. It didn't mention if it's DRM-free or not. So I think it is DRM-free.

I will buy a copy today and check it out.




Turns out. It is the Original v1.0 GOG version installer. I'll add support for again.

I'm going to add new way to install the GOG and Atari versions. It's going to search for the gog or Atari install location and copy files to the directory of the launcher location. This will go for the other launchers as well. And for the Duke 3d launcher it will search the steam install location and copy over the addons. When they add the other addons to steam, I will add them to the launcher too.

Thank you Skulldog! I'm having such a blast playing through Blood again after all these years. It's tied with Duke 3d and Doom 2 as my favourite shooters ever and thanks to your launcher, it's the first time I've been able to play it properly on modern hardware. There's still nothing else like it. Cheers!

Skulldog. Just ran into a new problem. When I make changes to the Detail, Gamma, Mouse Sensitivity under the Options menu in the game (ex The main Blood Game w/ Plasma Pak and Cryptic Passage). Those settings doesn't carry over to the TC's and User Maps. Not to mention the AutoRun is on. When you change those settings in the Options menu while playing the Rage Against the Machine TC. It stays that way. Then you play a different TC or User Map, those options reset.

At least saving your control settings in Setup and click Save Config works. Those settings carry over in Blood w/ Plasma, Cryptic Passage, TC's and User Levels just fine. But not the in-game options of Detail, Gamma, Mouse Sensitivity and Autorun unfortunately.

EDIT & UPDATE: Tried using the GOG and CD-ROM versions of Blood and the in-game options still won't carry over to the TC's and user maps. However, the Duke, Redneck and (maybe) Shadow Warrior DOSBox launchers doesn't have this in-game options carry over bug.

Speaking of CD-Rom. I put OWU disc and the launcher didn't have that auto-detect and install like the other DOS Launchers. Will you include that in the 5.2 Blood Launcher update to include all the options in the installation except the TEN files like the other launchers? Like this pic:

I will check that out.

If you are playing ouwb and you make changes in game it will only change the blood.cfg in the BLOOD121 folder.
The Launcher has no way to know you made the change in game. When you run setup the launcher copies the Blood.cfg
to all the other folders to match the blood.cfg changes you made in setup because, the launcher knows when you run setup.

Don't want to make it copy the Blood.cfg to all folders every time you run the game.


You can do this: Go to play a map. Launch a map. Make changes you want in game. Exit the game. Then go to
video and sound. Press Save Config Button. Wait about 5 sec. Then press the Default Button.

That did it! Thanks. That step should be included in the how-to-install section of the Blood Dosbox Launcher.txt in the next update.

UPDATE: I screwed up the BloodLauncher shortcut icon by running it in Administrator Mode. Had to uninstall it to get rid of the shield icon. Now I get an shortcut icon of a sheet of paper w/ a window inside w/ icons inside the window. At least clicking on the icon brings up the Blood Launcher menu and the game runs fine. Had it installed to (as usual) C:\GAMES\GOG\One Whole Unit Blood

Looks like I'm gonna have to wait till the icon's back to normal again w/o the Admin shield.

New CD-installation method. Copies and Extracts the files over to Blood Dosbox folder.
New GOG\ATARI-installation method. Copies the files over to Blood Dosbox folder.
Removed Default folder saves in favor of New Options Menu.
Renamed Video\Sound Menu to Option Settings Menu.
New Options Menu. Reprogramed with new options and works the way it should.
Fixed a few bugs.
Special Thanks to Daedolon at The Postmortem for helping me figure out how to extract

Nice job on the Blood Launcher! I think the GOG.com version didn't come w/ the intros like the Monolith logo & the GT Interactive logo. Anyways, I found a new way to use the settings across the user maps and TCs. Under Blood Setup when you made adjustments to your settings in the Setup and launch the game launches w/ the midi music. Apply the mouse settings, turn the auto run off and so on in the game. Then exit the game and go to Options in the launcher menu then make your settings there then click Apply and Save!

So which launcher you're working on next Skulldog?

Found an article a/b a fix to the glitch that causes the damage output done by enemies to change when loading a save on Still Kicking, Pink on the Inside, and Extra Crispy difficulty: http://www.gog.com/f...ding_fix_inside

UPDATE: Found another article a/b Blood on 1280X1024 running smoothly. If the next update contains a setup config file mode w/ those options set.: http://www.gog.com/f..._you_know/page1

Will these be implemented in the next update?

All you have to do is put the naps in the folder called maps, and the maps will show up in Play a Map menu.

You can put them in a custom folder and launch them from custom addons. Just add a new folder in custom folder,
then put you custom map and associate files into the new folder. Then run it from custom addons.
