Transfusion has been largely eclipsed by BloodCM.
Amazon or ebay would bee your best bet.

I have actually started "porting" it to the much cooler FTEQW engine (also quake1 based like DarkPlaces). "Porting" because I suck at programming... but it is more or less working already. Still a few more major bugs and issues to fix before I want to release it to the public, but generally I am in favor of releasing early and often No promises at this point though.
My plan is to focus on a (not necessarily fully faithfull) multiplayer focused release, with the medium term goal to add the monsters back in for a Left4Dead like coop experience... i.e. no full campaign only some fun maps with higher replay value.
FTEQW is cool because it has a lot of advanced rendering features and is under active development (don't be fooled by it's horrible website). It also has splitscreen mulitplayer and nicely working Android/webGL ports. It also comes with a much nicer HUD and GUI system (EZhud and a CSQC menu) which I am currently adapting for Transfusion. And it has IRC and XMPP chat build in, which should allow you to easily connect to your friends COOP games.
But right now I am honestly still at the point to get the current state of Transfusion to work without major issues. I guess I am 80% there for now.
P.S.: Is there a place where I can download the enemy models? The source repositories and the released .pk3s seem to only include the enemy code, but not the actual models.
