This is the full leak that occurred back when 3D Realms was going to publish Blood through FormGen. One of the developer's computers was sent to a PC repair shop, and this shop found the Blood Alpha in development game and copied and leaked it to BBS's and the web. It was mentioned the next time a PC goes in for a repair, someone is going along with the computer and is not going to take their eyes off of it during the process.

Anyways, this is a very early look at Blood, complete with interesting documentation like Change Logs, early map designs, tools and even the (now open source) BUILD Engine source code.

Among many tools and src included the following require passwords: - The game source code.
Archive Password: elcycer (recycle) - The communication src.
Archive Password: jello - Setup src.

-Alpha .RFF format is v1.48 use ReBUILD's RFF extractor tool.

Blood Alpha Map Converters by Q Studios Corporation.

These converters where used during development of Blood.
These converters may work with other BUILD Games.
The convdbx.exe converters may have been custom updaters
prior to Map File Format v4.
