    The newest version of GDX is now v0.771 (19.07.2017). The widescreen support works for me, and the sound finally hasn't got any glitches.

    Soundtrack from alpha build of Blood. Shame, that some of those tracks didn't made to full game.

    Just played thru the whole first episode with BloodGDX, it's pretty much perfect, everything's working, voxels, 3D floors, room over room, etc. The only thing missing is the CD/OGG audio, but it will probably be added in the next update. MIDI works perfectly. Proper widescreen with AR correction. Save files are the same format as the original, you can swap 'em back and forth if you wish. There's even an option for texture filtering, if you're gay.

    It's happening, I guess?

    Turns out the leaked Blood alpha source code/file dump (that this BloodGDX project is using as reference) also contains some personal e-mails from that era. GEORGE.TXT is of particular interest. Project Manager's thoughts on his interaction with Ken Silverman (the boy wonder creator of the Build engine) are a bit... too honest so to speak. :lol:

    Sounds like Ken Silverman is front-line autistic, but I guess one has to factor in that he was only 21 years old at the time... right?

    GEORGE.TXT is dated 6/23/1995, so Ken was 20 actually 19, his birth date being 11/1/1975.

    Here's a good video about Ken Silverman and his Build engine.

    Poor goys, he was just expressing his nature.

    Does anyone know what Jace Hall is up to these days? Doesn't he own the Blood rights?

    After the picture that was on his twitter in 2016 there is no indication about any new developments regarding remake / reboot / etc.

    As for the owning Blood, the rights are split:

    It seems to be a constant: Classic engineer developer? If Yes = Autist, with no exceptions.

    Why...Those amateurish 3D graphics look far, far worse than the sprite and 2D graphics of the original. Animations are awful as well, the game looks very sluggish overall.
