- PESTIS.MID (Pestis Cruento)
Some levels (particularly E1M3, E3M2, E4M6 and E4M7) have a song option to play this music track in BLOOD.INI file. But every line has been commented out letting the track unused when either MIDI or AdLib/Soundblaster is setup. Only the RedBook CD version of the song is used in the final game.
A plain text file in the install folder, MONOLITH.TXT, includes a message by then-Monolith CEO Jason Hall, thanking the development team for their hard work and challenging players to take him on in online multiplayer.
Hello, I'm Jason Hall, the Chief Executive Officer of Monolith Productions Inc. I just wanted to say that I speak for all of us here at Monolith when I say that we appreciate you playing our latest game, BLOOD. Many here have made sacrifices to bring this awesome product to you, the gamer. It is very important to us to deliver the type of quality game play players of today demand. We will continue to strive for the best in the name of good gaming, and perhaps product by product, we can ever-so-slightly help to bring our whole industry into a new level of immersive experiences. Monolith's intent is to support the gamer. We are listening to the industry and will act upon what we hear. We understand clearly that without gamers, game companies would not exist. You can rest assured that we won't forget this fact, which is why you can expect Monolith to give all of our products the attention they deserve in order to make them an excellent experience. Here are some special thanks I'd like to say: 1.) As with any game project being built, there were tons of things the Blood team would have loved to add. Time being the deciding factor in all cases, they only were able to add some of these things. I would personally like to thank them for making the tough decisions. The cool features that didn't make it into BLOOD will go into BLOOD 2... 2.) Thanks to the Blood team--I am not picking a specific person or persons to thank in this text file, but I do want to personally thank the entire Blood team for all of their incredible work. You have all been true to the Monolith spirit of "I-will-work-my-ass-off-until-it-is-the-best-damn- product-ever." All of your fellow "Lithers" think that you are awesome (we are playing Blood all the time) and we are proud that you are part of the collective effort that IS Monolith. I am sure that the gaming world will appreciate you and your efforts as well. 3.) Thanks to Monolith itself--I'd just like to thank everyone here at Monolith for rallying together to support our internal teams (especially the Blood team). It is this kind of spirit and togetherness that will make the difference in our products and work environment. Keep the excitement! Now for some final words: [WARNING: the opinions expressed below are not necessarily those of Monolith Productions Inc. But since I'm the C.E.O, I'm going to rant for a second.] As you play BLOOD and get better and better, you'll start getting into BLOODBATHING... you know, calling up your friends and going head to head for some frag sessions. It's quite possible that you could become the best Blood player on your block. Heck, you might even be he best in your neighborhood... or city... or state... or WORLD!!!!!! <<< STOP RIGHT THERE >>> Before your "I'm the best at Blood ever" fantasy goes too far, make sure that you track me down and ask for a game. I'll be MORE THAN HAPPY to bring reality to you by way of guns akimbo shotgun. That's all I have to say about that...
