STALKER blood particles

A little mod that redesigns/enhances the bullet impacts in NPCs.

The goal was to create a "Saving Private Ryan"-like look and feel, not a "splatter mod" of any kind.

Install notes

Installing this mod is very easy:

- if you have not already changed your "fsgame.ltx", change the 2nd line so that it looks like this:

$game_data$ = true| true| $fs_root$| gamedata


- then copy the "particles.xr" file to your "gamedata" folder, and you're ready to go. If you want to uninstall the mod, just delete the "particles.xr" file.

I tested this with 1.0004, it works without problems. I think it should work with any other version or mod.
Please note that the screenshots (see links below) only give a very basic impression of the created effect, you need to see this in-game to get a full impression.

All I did was change the effects of the blood clouds, but I implemented eggchen's wall/concrete/dust impact enhancements, credit for this effect goes entirely to him and his work. I wouldn't have started this little project without his wall impact mod and the info he gave on the particle editor, so thanks a lot, man!

Here's what I did in detail:

- I created some new particle groups on the basis of existing particle effects that were scaled up and combined in a new order.
- I re-implemented the "headshot" blood cloud (not the gore chunks. I tried this, but it looked unsatisfactory)
- I removed two "blood drop" effects that created a kind of spray from the wound that looked unrealistic and too slow in my opinion.
- what you get are blood and dust clouds that can be seen in "Saving Private Ryan" or "Band of Brothers" (at least, this was my intention ), I didn't want to change this excellent game, that to me stands for never-before-seen realism, to a splatter orgy.

Is there anyway to mix this with other particle mods? I prefer your body impact but the particle mod I have changes other things as well. I love the movie Saving Private Ryan by the way.

There is a way, but it's a little complicated. I'll move the answer to the mod discussion section.

Blood Particles ver. 2.0 is up!

New, completely overhauled version of the mod can be found here:

http://stalker.filefront.com/file/Blood_Particles_Mod;92205

For detailed info and some screenshots, just follow the link.

EDIT: Anyone who does not have EggChen's Particle Enhancement mod installed will need an updated hotfix, or the game will crash. The download link for the hotfix can be found in my signature. Sorry for the inconvenience!

I have uploaded a hotfix for this crash. Please note that the hotfix contains only the textures that cause this error message. You don't need it if you have particle enhancement 2 installed.

Strange, it still crashes.

But, I don't think it'd be worth your time to go through every texture in the game. I'll just update.

Harmont, pfx_anomaly_19_studden.dds is a component of EggChen's Particle Enhancement mod. However, if your Blood Particles mod is built around the particles.xr file from EggChen's mod (which includes a reference to pfx_anomaly_19_studden.dds), then that will cause the game to crash for players who aren't using PE, since your mod doesn't include the texture.

So, you have two options: either you rework your mod from the ground up using the vanilla particles.xr file as a base, or you provide all components of the PE mod in yours as well. What you currently have is a PE-compatible version of the particles.xr file, which actually doesn't work at all as a standalone file.

PS: Keep up the (damn) good work!

Thanks for spending the time to help out one person

Hmm, I've got a new problem, I think it's a bug with the mod, but I'm not sure. My game crashed when I shot someone a second time.

The effect "hit_pkm" is called by by the hit_fx.script that is part of the mod. The effect itself is part of the particles.xr file that comes with the mod. If you updated the game to 1.0005 or 1.0006 please install my particles.xr file again, just to make sure.
Oh, by the way: let's continue the discussion in the mod discussion section (there is a thread there called "blood particles discussion" or the mods are gonna hit us with their wrath...

No matter what I do, when I install blood_particles_2 over particle_enhancement_v2, or or particle_enhancement_v3, or Blood_particles_2_hotfix with Smart Mod Manager or manually the game always crashes at the very start. My game v 1006, can you guys talk to each other and merge 2 mods?? I spent 2 days merging blood_particles_2 with particle_enhancement_v2 and all I get is crash

I consider version 2 of the mod final, so there won't be any updates for SOC.

@FlashXAron:
I would love to make a version for Clear Sky, unfortunately this can only be done with an SDK, so let's hope GSC will release one for CS. I tried to import the particles.xr file into the SOC SDK, but as I had expected, it didn't work...

@artpav
sorry that you're having trouble installing the mod. The error message seems strange to me since the repair_dialogs.xml is neither a part of my mod nor did I implement any references to any repair mods...
You don't have to merge Blood Particles with Particle Enhancement 2.0, because it is already part of the mod.

new version is up!

Hi guys,

after a long time, I decided to give the Blood Particles modifications a final tweak, and as it turned out, it became the largest mod I ever made for any game.

The download can be found here:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=MBH3I24V

This version contains the Arsenal RC1 weapon mod, Gosuke's weapons, Particle Enhancement 3.0, a slightly tweaked version of Oblivion Lost, Trojanuch's weather mod and lots of other stuff.
Credits for this go mostly to other people than me, above all to Russao, Kanyhalos, EggChen and Trojanuch. Please refer to the enclosed howtoinstall.txt for details.
Anyone who always liked the Gauss rifle will *love* it in this version

If anyone is interested, the old versions of the Blood Particles mod can be found here, since filefront doesn't host them anymore:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LHZP6IXU (Blood Particles 1.0)

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=ZP6WX216 (Blood Particles 2.0)

Cheers,
Harmont

This is kind of strange, since all the textures are part of the package...
Please check your gamedata\textures folder, it should contain a folder called "wm". Depending on the version you use (2.0 or the multimod version), this folder should have either 9 or 12 texture files in it.
If that is, for some strange reason, not the case, you can download the missing textures here:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=N2RK2CQW

Just copy the "wm"-folder into your gamedata\textures folder, and you should be ready to go.

By the way, if anyone wants to use version 2.0 of my mod together with Particle Enhancement 3 or Arsenal RC 1 without using my multimod, you can do so by downloading the multimod anyway and by extracting the particles.xr file from it for max compatibility.

I just downloaded the file (we're talking about the multimod version, right?) myself to test it, and everything is where it should be, including the blood textures. I guess something went wrong with your download, so I would definitely try again. Maybe it's your version of WinRar, I packed the whole thing with WinRar x64 3.90.

Yes, I tried winrar and it worked. Thanks a lot, this mod looks just wonderful, of course we all are waiting for LA and SMP 2.5 but until then it will be your multimod. Thanks again and best regards; Roberos
