CBLOOD Ultimate Edition!

Post by Nash »

Image

What's this? ANOTHER mod that changes the Baron and Cacodemon blood colors? Hasn't this been done to death for like 15 years?

What's different here is that this does not replace any actors. The blood color is changed at runtime. What that means is ultimate compatibility!

CBLOOD Ultimate Edition is the only mod that changes blood colors without actor replacement!

Requires GZDoom 4.4.0 onwards.

Instructions:

1) Download from attachment
2) Put it in your autoload
3) Go kill stuff!

Note about fuzzy blood
This is currently impossible. Achieving this in a universal way would require reassigning an actor's blood type, and due to CBLOOD's nature of working its magic at runtime, this simply can't be done because GZDoom doesn't support it.

EXTRAS
Raven CBLOOD by Tesculpture (for Heretic and Hexen)

Adding new blood color definitions is easy!

1) Make a new file, zscript.zc (or .txt, or .zs, or .WhateverTheHellYouWant). Don't forget to add

Code: Select all

version "4.4.0"
 
as the very first line of this file, right at the top.

2) Use the following format:

Code: Select all

class CBlood<NameOfCustomMonster> : CBlood
{
    Default
    {
        BloodColor "xx xx xx";
        // You can also add the following flag to stop the actor from bleeding!
        +NOBLOOD
    }
}
 
Some examples:

Code: Select all

class CBloodFunkyDemon : CBlood
{
    Default
    {
        BloodColor "FF 00 FF";
    }
}

class CBloodSkeletonDude : CBlood
{
    Default
    {
        +NOBLOOD
    }
}

// Inheritance works too!
class CBloodBiggerSkeletonDude : CBloodSkeletonDude {}
 
YES you can also define new blood colors in DECORATE, as long as cblood.pk3 is loaded before your patch!

In your DECORATE.txt (loaded after cblood.pk3):

Code: Select all

ACTOR CBloodFunkyDemon : CBlood
{
    BloodColor "FF 00 FF"
}

Nice, I have a couple of question though. Will there be a community maintained database similar to bludtype, and is there a way to utilize some form of checksum so that monsters with different sprites than the retail games won't conflict with mods. An example I'm thinking of is Hell to Pay's imps having some yellow blood compared to the vanilla sprites.

I can start one, if there's enough demand!

That's an interesting point actually, I should look into expanding the mod to consider this in future. Thanks for the suggestion!

Just saw this now. Easy to edit and finally no messing with existing actors any more. The next best thing to having a direct implementation via port. Thumbs up!

What's with the GPL in there? The source file has a more permissive license attached.

Graf - that was a mistake, will change it in the next update

(no, it's not meant to be GPL)

I'll look at adding fuzzy blood in the next version.

Currently I am very busy with 4 different projects, so progress on my various mini-mods will be a bit slower.

It's not necessary. I feel there are not many people prefering fuzzy blood anyways.

I'm all for. I've already made the patches for Eviternity, Valiant, Ancient Aliens, BTSX for personal use.

I'm now wondering, is it possible to have fuzzy blood decals on walls?

So when you say this has ultimate compatibility I'm a tad confused. Ultimate compatibility with like, various monsters, or would this work on blood/gore mods as well?

Fixed the incorrect licensing issues. No other changes.

Assigning fuzzy blood using this mod is not possible and I don't plan to pursue such a feature for the foreseeable future. See OP for explanation.

Gray blood can kinda work as an alternative to fuzzy blood.
