Version 0.768 Is Fantastic
Been playing Death Wish with it and I'm having a blast. It's amazing being able to revisit this masterpiece in high resolution and with more than 20 frames per second. The voxel support introduced with this version makes it pretty much complete now.
The port is also very stable; not a single crash so far. The only problem I encountered was a bug with portals that create halls of mirrors, but that's it.
Hey skacky, were you able to complete finish Death Wish using BloodGDX? is it completely playable?
I haven't finished it yet. I'm a couple maps into the third episode. The only issues I've encountered is the room over room portal and some strange warping on the first map of episode 2 in one of the convoys.

Newest version has ROR support

at least when I am playing Death Wish.
That Certainly Helps
It could be worth adding a feature where voxels only show up within a certain distance? Kind of a 'level of detail' thing for performance?
As an aside I am running a pretty decent machine. I7 4790k and a GTX 970 gpu, so it's surprising to have performance issues for such an old game.
Now it only needs audio playback on the videos, it seems.
Too bad it requires Java, but I may install Java just to play this.
Too Bad It Requires Java
just play the previous version instead (duke32)
There is a portable version that does not require installing the java runtime
Newest version has cutscene audio now

Ive followed this guide and I still cant get the cutscenes to play.
It seems as simple as putting the .wav and .smk files from the .bin into the Blood directory with BloodGDX and everything else...but it doesnt work?
Look at the post by gordon81
Standalone BloodGDX using OpenJDK
, just drop your Blood install into it and double-click the EXE. Works wonderfully!
