The "User Map" option is meant to load loose levels that you or someone else created in the map editor, and don't come with its own "INI" file describing an episode.
Excellent! Now I understand the user map selection Keep up the good work, this is all I have played these last two weeks!!!

Thanks for the video! At first I thought it was running pretty poorly, then I noticed the resolution: 640x400 When you switched to 320x200 became butter smooth.

Thanks! Next week I hope to release another update that will give a 10-20% performance boost depending on the scene.

Blood is one of my favourites. I added some screenshots to the HOL entry.

There are a lot of film references to The Evil Dead, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Elvira and The Shining.

A man of culture. I don't remember the Elvira reference though. Probably my favorite reference is this one:

So obscure

Thanks, it's an honor. Wow, that's a lot of screenshots, even from the secret levels!
Speaking of movie references, a year ago I listened to an interview with Nick Newhard. Blood started out as a serious Lovecraftian horror game, but George Broussard from 3D Realms suggested to make it more campy. I think they ended up with a great blend of dark and campy horror elements. For anyone interested, here's the full interview:

It might not happen this weekend, as I'm still trying to track down these occasional lockups. For testing I updated the other two games (Exhumed, Shadow Warrior) to the latest engine, and they started freezing too. I already have a long list of what is not the cause, but so far couldn't figure out why they happen yet

I think they used this calendar in multiple levels, but there's definitely one in E1M2 in the train station's kitchen.

No need to put pressure on yourself to get the update done, when it arrives, it arrives.

Do you need any freezes reported or lockups reported? If it's useful I can note mine. I just thought they were random.
