So, author of BloodCM is now developing a proper port
Whereas BloodCM was a recreation of Blood in eDuke engine, this is a proper port developed through reverse engineering.

On his site he wrote that this is the reason he won't be working of Cryptic Realms for BloodCM, as this port should be able to run both it and user made maps/episodes once it is out.

At this point it is hard for me to be excited as all of these projects keep disappearing (such as XL Engine). But hey, another hope for a modern Blood port.

I wonder if he has the skills.

You cannot or hardly reverse-engineer gameplay stuff like movements or AI though... See PowerslaveEX.

This is still the best (ONLY) sort of functional port you could get without available source code... BloodEX or BloodXL wouldn't be able to magically achieve otherwise either, if they actually saw the light of day.

What makes you say this? It'd be difficult, but impossible is a stretch.
Dude, uploaded another video

So far, he's making steady progress and seems to be quite serious about this.

Because since it's a program, it is mathematics, and to find the exact value among an infinity of possibilities, well... x) The PowerslaveEX guy wrote himself that part because he couldn't find a way to get the original behaviour, while he was able to reverse-engineer the rest

Hopefully at least one of these will see the day and turn out good

XLengine, no news from them.
Not sure if Kaiser will continue BLOOD EX since the team was scared by the copyright issue.

with gdxBlood, you will need to use/buy the original game anyway, so it's all good, it's really like the original, animations, death animations, weapons effects, it will be cool to play with a launcher/port like that ! I hope it will bring more people in the blood community. :)

I wonder what Jace would think of this, he very strongly hinted at a Blood revival with the old team members but that was a while back and no more information has been released.
You guys saw this vid?

Has him trying out user made episodes and maps in his port near the end.

This guy has achieved good results in a short time. Probably a beta will come out of the port within a few months, maybe even before. And it's getting great, even more so if it's reverse engineering, which is hard as hell.
ace

edit: and XL engine hasnt vanished http://xlengine.com/
