Blood2pHreeQ mod? Experiments continue.

Merry Christma-ween to you blood nuts great and small! :guns: :evillaugh:





A second cut scene has been reworked, not quite doing everything I wanted, but everything it needs to do is there at least. Ishy's dialogue is more accusatory, while Caleb has a reaction to his disappearance. One of b2's non technical plot flaws was the fact that Caleb could simply wish Gideon away at any time. If you watch this cutscene first and Ophelia's last, you'll see were I was going with this.

LOL the CabalCo. Aerostat. It's still better than the original helicopter anyway. There's some combat at the end, I never found a really good Shikari replacement. A giant wasp creature is holding the fort for now.

I assume it was taken from one of the hundreds of games she has appeared in, but where did you get the new Lani Minella clips?

Those are Cate Archer NOLF clips. Cate and Ophelia's voice don't mesh all that well unless they're laughing/excited, but there isn't a lot of Ophelia in b2 to go around.

This is a glimpse of my efforts to bring the mad scientist into the game.
Bandicam will not give me a break, and I apologize for the freeze that occurs when the camera goes into 3rd person mode.

That's pretty crazy. Blood 2 had so much unused voice lines. Along with the Mad Scientist, Gideon had a bunch of lines that were apparently supposed to be used during his boss fight but weren't scripted to play. Oh, and happy late New Year. :drinkblood:

Happy belated NY dosgamer000! There's nothing off the table, save for those resources Circus of Blood will be making use of. When it comes to this b2 recycling program, even the lowly prophet will be getting a few extra lines. :evillaugh:

Here's something goofy for February.

Known issues:

Use of a tts voice- I'm looking for better.
Sound scripts are messed up.
No texture for the boneleech.

If you poke it hard enough then something will stir. :evillaugh:

Dear Monolith, Atari, Jace Hall, Jay Wilson, or anyone in posession of the uncompiled retail levels for Blood 2 The Chosen, please set those .ED files free, and make them accessible to the public.

Thx from:
zZarDoZz, pseudozardozz, cabal reject, dudes1&2, n0t_mine, and about half a dozen other handles I've used over the years and can't remember.

Blood 2 is one of those games where I wish the beta content created by Monolith was released to the public. I'm super interested into beta game concepts like Resident Evil 1.5 and the Spaceworld 1997 demo from Pokemon Gold.

I remember a picture of beta Blood 2 with the player receiving a text message from Ophelia in-game. So much unused content even exists in the .REZ files, if I remember correctly. Literally has been years since I browsed through Blood 2 and it's game files haha.

Perhaps if Blood 2 was given an extra year or two of development time, all four Chosen could've had their own single-player campaigns as opposed to just having Caleb being available, pretty much.

I dunno, I love Blood just as much as Blood 2, but Blood 2 has this weird nostalgia charm that just makes me slightly more interested in it and what could've been if things turned out different.

EDIT: Typo.

Yeah, pretty much describes my own reasons for loving Blood II just as much as the first game even with the original Blood being by far the more accomplished and fleshed out title.

Early LithTech in general just seems a perfect time capsule for both the pitfalls and opportunities of that era in gaming.
