Default BLOOD patch needed

I just bought Blood from Ebay (last copy) sealed inside it's gorgeously huge 'ol box that games used to come packaged in, and to my surprise I see "Special Edition: violent content removed". Censorship? In my DOSBox?

I haven't even opened it yet because I'm afraid that if I do then I won't be able to return it...have any of you seen a patch for it that negates this Jack Thompson-like atrocity? In return for your help, I'll submit any extras (wallpapers, CD audio) on the CD to Abandonia...just please help me!

Violent content removed? For real? What would be left?

Now you know why I rarely trust anything with "Special Edition" on it (got stung by the SE version of Deus Ex).

I've done some digging around, but the only mention I can even find of the toned down version, is on the Wikipedia entry for Blood. I came across a few small forums dedicated to the game, but nothing was mentioned about fixing the Special Edition. However, it sounds like a parental lock setting. I've read about some regions where various PC games that came with a Parental Lock feature (like Duke Nukem 3D) had that lock permanently engaged by default. Perhaps that's what was done with your version of Blood. I know Duke Nukem 3D eventually got a patch to undo that permanent Parental Lock, so maybe Blood got the same treatment somewhere.

maybe i can help you. look at this: http://www.lith.com/popup.asp?id=blood

Then scroll down to:
Patch for Bloodless (censored) Blood 1.0
If you have a Bloodless (censored) copy of Blood Registered 1.0, please download this small patch to put all the Blood back in your game. Important Note: Once you have updated your Bloodless (censored) version of Blood to be the full blood filled version, also download the Blood Registered 1.11 patch (link above) to stay current.

I tried all the links on that page, Chojin. Unfortunately, they all gave me a "425 Can't open data connection" error. However, last night, I finally found something...

http://archive.dukertcm.com/knowledg.../blood-patchs/

Right there are all the same patches, and each of the downloads worked when I tested them (grabbed the stuff for myself when I find a copy of Blood some day). I would have posted this when I first found it, but I got kicked by my ISP and couldn't log back on.

Anyway, hope this helps.

I cannot thank you enough The Coop! Even though I can't tell the difference at the moment, it says that the parental lock is turned off. And as if that weren't enough, now I've got all the patches!

I suppose it's time for me to keep my word...now, to find out how to submit things to Abandonia...

Well, there's a lot less than I had thought there would be, but here's all that I found that could be submitted:

-Type 0 Negative's "Love You to Death" music video
-In-game cinemas
-Two Windows themes
-Blood credits cinema

...Yeah, I was expecting a lot more too. Any of the four above I should submit?
