I wanted talk about the fan expansions!

First, with Death Wish:

For people who dont know it:
http://www.moddb.com/mods/death-wish-for-blood
And a wiki for it:
http://www.blood-wiki.org/index.php/Death_Wish

I don't know if Dustin is in this forum, but i would want thanks him for this very wonderful expansion....i finaly finished it (after some month besides some others games), it was pretty hard to 1life all the maps in "Well done", some traps are really dangerous ^^
But the best is how he added a big nightmare(dream) style in those maps....It showed really how evil can be BLOOD, in a artistic way!

But who can be this ghost guy who appear all along the maps? You will know it if you finish it! ^^

More i play BLOOD, more i like it, i must say, the atmosphere is so deep and even with a evil style, he has a very spiritual style too, the musics, the atmosphere....the cultists! :v

Also for this expansion, you have very long maps but each one is really awesome, very very impressive work, do you know how much time He needed to make it ?

I have finished French Meat too, pretty cool and well made too, Tedd did an awesome job too, programming with Build is so hard and long.... ^^

I will start later with Bloody Pulp Fiction...do you know if there is some others fan expansions?

BLOOD (1) Forever *Phantasm*

EDIT: I started Bloody Pulp Fiction but when i start a game, it crash and there is the line "out of memory", how can i fix it please? ... :s

Glad you enjoyed the expansion — the latest version (not released yet) has a better health balance along with a few more levels. I've been waiting for a time when I can redo the cinematics to release the update but I've been pretty busy running my own gamedev company lately.

It's hard to pin down how long it took to create the maps since I'd do a first draft then revisit each one later on adding details. I think when you complete a map and take some time apart it's easier to see what needs tinkering. Episode 1 levels needed the most work since I started with those after a long absence from mapping for Blood. By the time I got to Episode 3 I wasn't making a lot of mistakes so I guess those went the quickest. I guess each level took about 3–4 weeks minimum depending on how much free time I had after I got out of work. Mapping goes WAY faster after memorizing the soundFX numbers, how to set up common special effects, etc.

Some of the more famous expansions include:
Bloody Pulp Fiction, RATM, French Meat, and of course Cryptic Passage. Some older expansions include Gods and Banzai's Add-On.

It's you who created Death Wish!?
Nice to meet you !

You did a so awesome job, you are like a 'god to make some expansions, seriously, i have tried to make a BLOOD DM map but it's SO hard with the old build....

What is RATM ? Gotta check all those expansions !! Need more BLOOD!
Thanks for the list!

Im listening "The lair of shial", damn the ost is so wonderful too.... Im proud because i have finished Death Wish in "Well done" 1 life per map (but i suck in DM lol), it was so hard for me xD

Gotta retry the first map of Bloody Pulp Fiction again B)

EDIT: A yes, RATM: http://www.moddb.com/mods/ratm
http://blood-wiki.org/index.php/List_of_Mods
Awesome, there is a lot more expansions than Shadow Warrior.... ! and who are long! :)

Hello there, i post here to ask some help, like in the transfusion forum, i repost it:
"Need a help !
Im at e1m11 of bloody pulp fiction expansion, i havent found the fire key, so i have jumped over the platform to go in the other part...it was possible (intented?)
I have found the spider key and the moon key, after the moon door, i have no idea where i must go, there is a pit who killed me 2 times....but it seems i can't go in the other part, too high.
Where must we go after the moon key please?"

Can't continue....im at the water thing, and i have no idea what i must do here.... :/
Very cool expansion anyway!

Thank you!
In fact, i was at the moon key who is really after the fire key, i was able to jump over the wall with an other wall....
But in the end of the map, i opened a door with the moon key and there was nothint except a medipack...
I noticed, there is a part of the map in an other spot, with some train stuff, it seems....
No idea how i can open the closed door.

I have found the fire key (with the piano thing), but it didnt help..... I hate when im blocked in a fun expansion lol :/

Hehe thank you, it will be helpful ! ^^

I have started "Rage against the machine" too, the train map was really hard, i had like 4 hp after get a dynamite on my face at the moon door but you can't really escape easily because you are between 2 trains....and you need to jump on the second train to protect yourself, but pretty dangerous....
I have survived i don't know how x) thx to the tommygun :)

This expansion is really cool too ^^

EDIT: Have finished "banzai" expansion some hours ago (and found the secret map), a lot of ammo (and health/doctor bag), so it was easier to survive. hehe x)
Nice expansion too, just the first map who is a bit large and horizontal but stil very cool, dat cave map was crazy intense sometimes ^^


EDIT2: Ah, a guy told me what i must, at the moon door, i must take the wooden chest, go back to the archade machine and at the GORF machine, push the level, it will open the door...
It's weird because the wooden chest didnt appear, i suppose i needed to check everywhere to take it without the sprite on the map, then i was going back and tested the level, it worked idk why lol.
Finaly, i can continue this cool expansion *Phantasm*

EDIT3: I have finished Bloody Pulp Fiction.... awesome and nice last parts!

Now, i go to "Legends of Iconoclast" and fun to see how the maps looks like some...things :)

I repost to know !
What are the best fan episodes to play and who are normal (without custom stuff), and at least 3 maps ?

I have finished (1life/well done) French Meat, Death Wish, Bloody Pulp Fiction, Inherit the Earth, Rage Against The Machine and Banzai.

I think, i will replay the original game but i wanted know if there is some others packs who have a good quality!

I can try to finish the fan episodes in Extra Crispy but i would want try some others maps... in the worse, i can try the users maps x)

Thx in advance :)

edit: I have found the BestOfBloodFreeminded ^^
Let's go! :)

Thank you ! ^^ :)
EDIT: Do you know some others "normal/vanilla" expansion (more than 3 maps) I could play ? (without custom stuff)
Like French Meat, Death Wish and others ^^
I have played Best50 with "The abandoned factory" but too bad, it was only 1 map but a very cool one! :D

Blood Lost Episodes is a new episode with maps which weren't released in the final game. All of them are from Blood Alpha. Anyway, the maps haven't good finishes, but still playable and enjoyable.

Cabal's Return. Wait for it.

I have played some expansions in Extra Crispy/1life per map, i have put a topic on transfusion, i copy/paste here to show it! :

Here you can put the link of the walkthrough or others videos of the BLOOD expansions, i think a lot of expansions are awesome and should be showed to people (with a good render if possible! ^^)
My favorite are "French Meat" (very classic) and Death Wish (nightmare style sometimes who is wonderful),

First, i liked so much Death Wish than i have made a videoclip, like an amv, but i wanted show to people the best parts of the expansion with a nice remix of Unholy Voices (BLOOD 2 Resurrection remix):
(spoiler: it contains a lot of last scenes, even the last one)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzVj4YCmoFg

It's not to show off, but it can be fun to show to people who dont know BLOOD, how interesting can be the game in Well Done or Extra Crispy, sometimes we can rush, sometimes we must take care, like a snake. I could use Well Done but i did it yet, i wanted try in Extra Crispy/1life per map (but i save in the beginning of the maps, if i die, i don't want lose my weapons.)
I don't find a lot of secrets but i have found the secrets ones (for French Meat, i have asked to Tedd how to find the secret exit, for Death Wish, i have checked the videos of Lingyan203, for Banzai, i have found it myself).

Gameplay of "French Meat" Expansion, classic expansion but i liked the style of Tedd for his maps! Nice relief too! :)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRgyS1hV4JU

Gameplay of "Death Wish" Expansion, wonderful level with a nightmare style with a lot of themed maps! (e2m1=>e2m2=>e2m3, by exemple, so epic!)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieqi0E0x3HI

I liked how Death Wish used airplane/ship in e2m1 but it doesnt look like futurist airship with neon and light, it reminds me more very dark steampunk things (not really steampunk), but it keep really the style of the original game!

Gameplay of "Banzai addons", a lot of ammo but the maps are really fun too ! (i used banzai_p, idk if it was the good version...)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syP_kj2YO9o

So awesome to see how much expansions there is for this game, especially when you see how hard can be Build for programing ^^'

I have a problem, i use D-Fend reloaded, but when i use a mod who seem to use custom contents, it doesnt work, i have the v1.21 of BLOOD, it has the expansions....
Is there a way to be make it work ?
I would want play BloodChronicles2 :S

EDIT: It works ! I must put all the file of the zip in the BLOOD folder with the command file, even the files who were in the maps/music folder, all in the BLOOD folder, not separatly, good to know ! :D

BloodChronicles looks really good, im gonna have a good time with it, hehe :)

EDIT2: Is it a compilation of differents wads like a mappack or is it a Community Project (where some people could have shared their map who was already on an other project)? Still could to replay the map of Rising Sun.
Im at e2m2, e2m1 was so cooooool ! ^^*Phantasm*
