New version!

- No longer too janky; annoying message removed
- Fixed floating blood and gibs
- Because Zandronum doesn't support filter folders, I am now forced to upload separate files for different target source ports and IWADs. Please choose only 1 file. (thank fuck I have automation implemented so that I don't have to work too hard to produce 3 separate files... grumble grumble...)
- Added liquid terrain
- Add more gib variations

Aaaand a quick but important fix. Please download v0.3.

I have actually tested multiplayer Zandronum and it actually works properly now.

I've launched some test servers for both Doom 1 and Doom 2 (hosted on TSPG) so feel free to hop in whenever. I might be in there...

(links in the first page, or just find the servers "OldBlood Test Server" in Doomseeker)

Been playing a map or two with this to test it out, gotta say that this is probably my preferred gore mod. I like having the feedback of gibs flying around when enemies die, but felt too squeamish seeing them do things like stretch viscera from a crushing sector or splurt fountains of blood to bullet wounds like what would happen in other gore mods I've looked up, haha.

Just about the only thing I can say I don't like is how floaty blood from bullet wounds looks, but it's a minor nitpick that probably would be outside the scope of the mod to change. Overall, loving this so far!

I assume you don't like that... giant blood sprite that stretches and fades out? I can look into scaling the object down.

Yeah, that one.

If you want to hear my personal take, I think Bolognese hits a good sweet spot with its "you shoot a demon and it bleeds but doesn't die" effect. The way it comes out of demons really quickly and fades out really quickly gives it a more punchy, juicy feel, and without creating visual clutter via too much gore onscreen at once. shame that latter philosophy wasn't really applied to gibbing demons, dang things are like blood mini-nukes sometimes...
