    Just in case NBlood development abruptly stalls. Anything not named EDUKE has a nasty habit of doing that, with BUILD3D sourceports. This would be a nice backup option for most people.

    Fresh reminder: Blood: Fresh Supply (yes that's the name of the remaster) is around the corner.

    The fanmade Java source port is amazing but the online part didn't work great when we tried it (it was and still is in beta). Playing online is possible using the original and dosbox but that's also far from perfect.

    I do hope that it will play nice with custom content and that there will be an option to disable friendly fire in co-op games (+M)..

    Yeah unlike Duke it never got a great source port that I know of, so $5 is a good deal for a remaster.

    Nice surprise that it already gets released today. Will buy on Steam unless they managed to fuck it up somehow.

    That filter and vignette they use in the trailer is p awful though, but it's probably only for the trailer or optional so I will leave my pitchfork and torch in the closet for now.



    Features are looking good:

    Blood: Fresh Supply Enhancements:
    • Updated using Nightdive Studio’s KEX Engine
    • Vulkan, DirectX 11 and OpenGL 3.2 support, play with unlocked framerates!
    • Antialiasing, Ambient Occlusion, V-sync and Interpolation support
    • Support for high resolutions including 4K monitors
    • Fully customizable keyboard and controller pad support
    • Extended modding support, including support for already existing mods
    • Completely rewritten netcode supports up to 8 players:
    • Play online in co-operative mode, kill each other in “Bloodbath” or split the difference in classic 4v4 team-based “Capture The Flag” mayhem
    • Battle it out in local split-screen action
    • Roll your own soundtrack with full CD and MIDI music support
    • Look fully up and down with a new 3D view, or stick with the classic BUILD-engine style!

    Despite owning the original I didn't get a discount on Steam. I read that people who own the original are now finding coupons in their inventory so if you care about a small discount and already own the original you might want to wait a little while before buying.

    Just bought it on Steam. Game runs like a beauty, and best enjoyed with music off.

    And i wanted to avoid buying stuff this month...

    It looks good, although i think the movies are much lower quality than in the original (which btw, is included as a "goodie"). Not that the original movies were the apex of quality.

    There seems to be some input lag going on. It mostly goes away if you disable the frame capping from the options, but it is still there a bit, which makes me think that there is some bug in input processing. Build engine had wonky mouse support, but other Build ports have fixed mouse support.

    For some reason disabling toggle crouch crashes the game :-P. And the settings are not saved after that.

    But beyond that it was an obvious purchase for me, now i hope these small issues will be fixed.

    Restart the Steam client. That pushes coupons coming your way.

    Looks like they've customized the difficulty settings even better compared to GDX port.

    Video settings. Everything works fine, except the custom mods sadly that have some problems.
    Death Wish is running fine with the first and third episode, but the second crashes the whole thing.
    Legends of Iconoclast 2: Unfinished Business doesn't load new audio, and there is no list of episodes like in Gdx. So you need to select the specific map to play each episode, and it crashes on some of them. I don't know about the scripts for now. So far GdX wins, when it comes to custom content compatibility.

    Saving the game freezes the whole thing for a couple of seconds as well. I don't know why it takes so long.
    The multiplayer in GOG version also has a huge latency problems. And it crashes from time to time.
