    Same.
    Finished episode 1 and loving it all over again.

    It's got a few issues, but, they've been good about supporting past titles. So, I'm sure they'll iron out the rough parts.

    I bought it immediately on GOG (for 5$). This is the first source port that gives me perfect framerate/frametime! Still, it has a few kinks they need to work out (midi audio crashing the game when loading a level, CD audio stopping after reload, blood splatters getting "stuck" in mid air).

    Don't have any of those and I'm approx. 3-4h in.

    Attempt a reinstall? Perhaps you have a corrupt download/installation.

    There's a beta patch out that begins fixing the various reported issues.

    @cryohellinc Thanks for the tip man! I didn't know this existed. I'll buy it ASAP!

    To everyone's surprise also bought this. As I usually hate old-school shooters... :D

    Btw Steam version has 50 % off too if you own original Blood on Steam. So not just GOG.
    It's not visible on store page but you get and automatically use a voucher when paying.

    Played BloodGDX a while back and got to ep. 3 I think but guess I'll start from scratch.

    Btw nice to have a Build / sourceport game with proper 3d aiming. That's the kind of stuff you'd want from remasters of old 2.5D shooters.

    I did, actually. It didn't help. The devs do recognise these as bugs, though (on the Steam forums, in the thread where they ask users to report bugs), so I hope for a fix in the 1.8.6 version (GOG doesn't get the beta branch). Still, it's good to play this game with proper&constant frametime. I'm putting off Death Wish 1.5 until these kinks are fixed.

    Going to see what I can find, so far the tech explanations I did find mentioned the framerate on the DOS version affected animations and fixing that up is why a few things worked differently though on lower performing systems it was also the same with the original DOS game. :)

    When someone asked why the tesla gun shot 4 or 5 shots and not just 5, turns out the logic was tied to the animation and tied into the overall framerate.

    EDIT: But what could be up with the gargoyle because they should go from stone statues to flesh and if that's just instant now I guess it's some workaround or limitation?

    EDIT: Ah it's from the changes for "One whole unit of blood." and the later patches which I never played, it got removed there since it affected gameplay and is now brought in line with this from what I can find.
    It took a second or two for the gargoyle to transition letting players kill them easily while this was going on.


    EDIT: Hah I remember minor gameplay elements from the 1990's guess memory isn't too bad after all.
    Well minor bits of minor gameplay elements at least. :p
