    [​IMG]

    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

    Installation:
    - move NBlood.nro into your /switch folder
    • make a folder called nblood on the root of your SD and copy the following files into it
      BLOOD.INI
      BLOOD.RFF
      BLOOD000.DEM-BLOOD003.DEM
      GUI.RFF
      SOUNDS.RFF
      SURFACE.DAT
      TILES000.ART-TILES015.ART
      TILES016.ART-TILES017.ART (One Unit Whole Blood edition only)
    • VOXEL.DAT
    • copy nblood.pk3 into the same folder
    • start NXBlood

    Controls:
    Currently you can't change the button mapping ingame

    In-game:
    Left Joystick - Movement
    Right Joystick - Looking around
    Left Joystick pressed - Sprinting

    Suggestions & Issues:

    If you have any issue or want to give a suggestion make to create a issue on github
    this gives me a overview of existing issues and wanted features
    https://github.com/Jan200101/NXBlood/issues

    Look at the projects tab to see whats in the works
    development will be rather slow as I am fulltime student

    Maybe...
    OR I could wait for either Switch DOSBOX, NXeDuke, or SwitchPCem.

    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!

    A little reminder that Blood is planned to return as a remaster very soon.

    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?..

    Gambia, The
    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

    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
