I did actually have some idea that something was happening with this, as PikaCommando contacted me about a month ago and asked about the content present on our Blood II: Revelations article on the Blood Wiki. I said that the information submitted there did indeed appear to have come from someone close to the project, and through that he was able to find Peter Hopkins' current online handle of Blaze Ventura.

The fact that he was actually able to contact and negotiate for the expansions release in some form was still news to me though. Hopefully something of value can be found from these files.

I've only made a cursory run through myself, but the big story is the dozens of
.ED files. Most are incomplete, although a handful might be finished enough for a playthrough. some of them are bb levels, so if anyone wanted to compile these and run a server, I'm sure it would be a worth while endevour. Looking forward to ILA's take on all this.

A second lookthrough that saddened me was the absence of any source code. Revelations was meant as an update in its earlier versions. While I knew the colision system would be removed, I had briefly hoped to see the ai changes and if they were worth implementing.

There are some new models too, mostly without animation. The chainsaw looks ready for use though.

I just saw this thread. Downloaded the files so I'll check them out. I always liked what Revelations was doing before they stopped.

Yeah, it really was when the project ended that the whole thing jumped the shark as far as I am concerned... :P

I'm currently going through and compiling the maps, checking through them in-game and I'll share (probably next weekend) the compiled data with instructions on how to get running with game (if required).

Thanks for compiling those Blaze_Ventura.

I just did a quick run through and yes, of the maps are pretty incomplete. I took a quick screen of each one if people want to check them out. Sorry for the missing textures but I'm sure its because i didn't load the other resources in the package.

@Blaze_Ventura:

Welcome to tfn! That tech2 map looks a little Black Mesa-ish If you don't mind me saying so.

@ILA,

ec textures looking good!
