NXBlood is a port of NBlood for the Switch which itself is a attempted Source port of the 1997 game Blood

All credit for the actual port goes to Nuke.YKT for his fantastic NBlood

Note:

this port will soon be continued and with proper controller support

Installation:
- move NBlood.nro somewhere into your /switch folder
  • make a folder called nblood on the root of your SD and copy the following files into it or next to the nro
    BLOOD.INI

Anyone else having sensitivity issues with the right stick? The game is unplayable with the Pro Controller due to crazy high sensitivity. Haven't played with the config files yet. It did boot up and run on the first try though! Blood is getting a lot of love lately.

Thanks!

HOLY. F*$£!. HOLY ACTUAL F$%!
YES DUDE YES!

- When you die in a level and 'restart' the level doesnt actually restart, it continues as you died but youve lost evertything picked up. This can break levels, say if you had a key.

- You cant move onto the next level as you have to "Press a key to continue" but none of the buttons work.

Edit: Ok, plugged in a keyboard and... it works! Lol was this intended? Save/load states work, options works. You can go back and forth in options and even use the console etc. If this was intended then KEEP IT!

Edit 2: I plugged in my mouse. MY MOUSE WORKS!

Hell, even the eDuke32 port needs updated. The current switch version crashes when docked. And performance can drop often. If overclock was added it would be full speed easily.

A lil' question: I want to change mouse sensitivity option at ingame Settings > Mouse Setup, but I can't exit that menu — is there any ESC button, or another path to change mouse (joycon) sensitivity?..

This is a direct Switch port of NBlood
NBlood is still missing a bunch of Joystick options and I'm working on implementing it
I'll change the values in the next release

Oh my god... This is amazing. Would be a lot better with music tho. Still, great^_^
You are right
Its not the same without the music
I'm working on implementing audio as soon as I get to it

Yeah Mouse and Keyboard were intended to work
Thanks for letting me know that you can't get into the next level with a controller, will fix that ASAP

As previously mentioned NXBlood is a direct port of NBlood which doesn't have any joystick settings yet
I'm working on implementing it myself
