'''''Extra Crispy''''' is a [[List of Mods|modification]] made for ''[[Blood II: The Chosen]]'' and ''[[The Nightmare Levels]]'' that builds on the work started in the earlier [[List of Mods#FX Enhancer|FX Enhancer]] modification. It consists primarily of two parts, a base tweak modification which acts much like a [[:wikipedia:Patch (computing)#Video_games|game patch]], and an "Enhancer Pack" which provides new textures and sound effects that can be used with the game.

''Extra Crispy'' is a recent modification originally released in 2011, but it has received updates as recently as January 2012. It expands upon the work started in ''[[List of Mods#FX Enhancer|FX Enhancer]]'', a modification with a similar premise that was made almost a decade earlier and hosted on the venerable ''[[Planet Blood]]'' website. ''Extra Crispy'' was initially released on June 22, 2011 by John "VGames" Carrizales, who has also made many similar tweak mods for several other older game titles. This was followed by three more updates, including a version 4.0, which was released on January 16, 2012.

Changes have been made to certain enemies artificial intelligence, allowing [[Fanatic]]s and [[Cultist]]s to navigate better and giving enemies better aiming and sensing abilities as well as better hit localization. Enemies will now select and use the weapon in their inventories which is the most powerful, and which they still have the most ammunition for. Fanatics will no longer run after the player upon being mortally wounded, and will instead explode immediately after suicide screaming. All enemies have also had their strength increased, with bosses especially being imbued with greater powers. [[Innocents]] were also made permanently weak even in higher difficulties, and one can no longer gib an opponent with a bullet, only with explosions and melee attacks. Cultists, Fanatics, and Innocents also now use the artificial intelligence values for the [[Shikari]] as a reference.

Various smaller changes have also been included. The weapons tab is now part of the default HUD, permanently showing the player their current selection of weapons and available weapons slots. The field of view has been increased, making weapons seem closer to the screen. The amount of time required for [[Caleb]] to start singing when left idle is decreased, and idle times for weapon animations are significantly reduced, allowing them to play far more frequently. The game's ladder physics are also improved, especially when used in water. The distance that objects can be used from is also increased, making it easier to open doors. The fire effects for burnt flaming characters and fire rising up out of burn barrels are also changed to the ones used for the projectiles fired sometimes by [[Zealot]]s. The [[List of Items#Flashlight|Flashlight]] was also made noticeably brighter, and it and the [[List of Items#Night Vision Goggles|Night Vision Goggles]] now last for a lot longer than they would in the original game.

That said, there s substantively more than Monday morning quarterbacking in the criticism leveled at police preparations for the ill-fated gay pride parade in Jerusalem where schoolgirl Shira Banki was stabbed to death and five others were wounded.With a little foresight on the part of our law-enforcers, there would be no need for hindsight reexamination.The fact that the police was obliged to set up an inquiry committee into its own perceived incompetence speaks volumes.The evidence already stacked against the police is no less than staggering.Apprehended perpetrator, Yishai Schlissel, was a man with a prior conviction for the identical crime, in identical circumstances and in the identical place. He was released from prison just three weeks before the recent parade and boasted all over social media that he planned to repeat his crime. Schlissel served just 10 years of a 12-year sentence for having knifed several participants at Jerusalem s gay pride parade in 2005.The judgment of the judicial authorities, of course, also deserves close inspection since Schlissel was no petty crook, was openly unrepentant and there were no grounds to assume that he d somehow surprisingly emerge a reformed character.The police certainly didn t think so and this is where another episode in the ongoing saga of our constabulary s bungling begins.From what has already emerged from the inquiry, the police drew up a list of six potential suspects who might attempt to violently disrupt the parade. Schlissel topped it. In other words, he was distinctly in the cops sights but all that was done about it was to circulate his mug shot to the many officers detailed to secure the parade.Amazingly, he still wiggled his way among the marchers and, despite his strikingly atypical attire, no cop stopped him, the photos of him notwithstanding.The greatest puzzle is why he and other suspects weren t picked up for questioning on any pretext for the duration of the parade. If suspicion of him was so pronounced to begin with, it would have been eminently reasonable to temporarily remove Schlissel from the scene. It would have been a minimal precaution, unlikely to have entailed major legal entanglements.Had this been an isolated case of police lassitude, it would have been tragic enough. But this isn t so. Shira s avoidable murder sadly highlights the same police ineptitude as manifested in other homicides.Although it is doubtful that the coldblooded execution of the three schoolboys kidnapped by terrorists last summer at the Alon Shvut junction was ultimately preventable, the police response could, nevertheless, not have been more irresponsible. A distress call from one of the abducted boys was ignored, as were alerts from the distraught parents. Many ultra-precious hours were pointlessly wasted when the trail was still hot and the abductors hadn t yet completed their getaway. The earlier chase is given, the greater the chance of success.It s nothing but heart-rending that what should be elementary to law-enforcement personnel evidently wasn t as in the gay pride parade case or in the 2006 very preventable Inbal Amram murder.The 21-year-old disappeared from her Petah Tikva home s parking lot. It eventually transpired that she was abducted by a carjacker/terrorist. Her father frantically sought help at the nearest police station where the three officers present mockingly shouted him down, treated him abusively and eventually ejected him altogether from the premises.Inbal s abandoned car was belatedly found in a derelict lot.She was inside, her throat slashed and barely alive. The paramedics were unable to save her by that point.None of the above blunders was caused by lack of money or material resources. The police image and capacity to regain a modicum of respect won t improve until strict discipline is imposed and a new set of values is inculcated throughout the force.The citizenry must be convinced that officers won t again resort to shifty excuses. They must be obliged to act on all suspicions of serious crime. Better to err on the side of caution than rely on arbitrary whims or hunches.We can only hope that this will be an issue taken seriously by the new police inspector-general. r <a href=http://www.glassesoakley.us.com/>oakley sunglasses</a>

"Blood 2 Extra Crispy version 5.0" (johncrystal00) - YouTube

Extra Crispy is a modification made for Blood II: The Chosen and The Nightmare Levels that builds on the work started in the earlier FX Enhancer modification. It consists primarily of two parts, a base tweak modification which acts much like a game patch, and an "Enhancer Pack" which provides new textures and sound effects that can be used with the game.

History[edit]

Extra Crispy is a recent modification originally released in 2011, but it has received updates as recently as January 2012. It expands upon the work started in FX Enhancer, a modification with a similar premise that was made almost a decade earlier and hosted on the venerable Planet Blood website. Extra Crispy was initially released on June 22, 2011 by John "VGames" Carrizales, who has also made many similar tweak mods for several other older game titles. This was followed by three more updates, including a version 4.0, which was released on January 16, 2012.

On March 25, 2014 a new list of features was revealed to be included in the next upcoming version of Extra Crispy. On February 25, 2015 he released [a trailer showcasing some of the changes present in version 5.0. This was accompanied by the full release on March 2, 2015 with a complete changelog.

Game Changes[edit]

Note: This does not currently reflect the changes made in Version 5.0 of Extra Crispy.

Extra Crispy changes many parts of game balance for Blood II. Some of the more notable changes are listed here:

Characters[edit]

Each playable character now beings the single-player campaign with their own designated weapon, alongside their already customized Knifes. The amount of Focus given to certain characters has also changed, allowing the default character of Caleb to make greater use of magical weapons; Caleb can now actually make use of the alternative fire mode of The Orb.

The following is what each character is now armed with at the start of the game:

Weapons[edit]

Akimbo Tesla Cannons was an added feature taken from FX Enhancer

Most of the weapons in the game have received changes to how much damage they can deal, how much ammunition they require, and how quickly they can be used and fired. The Singularity Generator, Vulcan Cannon, and Insect-a-cutioner are given new alternative fire modes. Sawed-Off Shotguns and Pistols can now make use of their secondary fire modes even when used in akimbo, and Tesla Cannons and Napalm Launchers can now be used in akimbo. The Sniper Rifle has been made powerful enough to kill a Shikari in a single shot, and the Knife now becomes more powerful every time it is used, a feature mentioned in the Blood II manual but never implemented in the actual game. In addition, during the course of the regular single-player campaign players will have access to the Combat Shotgun, a weapon which was originally only available in The Nightmare Levels.

Enemies[edit]

Changes have been made to certain enemies artificial intelligence, allowing Fanatics and Cultists to navigate better and giving enemies better aiming and sensing abilities as well as better hit localization. Enemies will now select and use the weapon in their inventories which is the most powerful, and which they still have the most ammunition for. Fanatics will no longer run after the player upon being mortally wounded, and will instead explode immediately after suicide screaming. All enemies have also had their strength increased, with bosses especially being imbued with greater powers. Innocents were also made permanently weak even in higher difficulties, and one can no longer gib an opponent with a bullet, only with explosions and melee attacks. Cultists, Fanatics, and Innocents also now use the artificial intelligence values for the Shikari as a reference.

Miscellaneous[edit]

Various smaller changes have also been included. The weapons tab is now part of the default HUD, permanently showing the player their current selection of weapons and available weapons slots. The field of view has been increased, making weapons seem closer to the screen. The amount of time required for Caleb to start singing when left idle is decreased, and idle times for weapon animations are significantly reduced, allowing them to play far more frequently. The game's ladder physics are also improved, especially when used in water. The distance that objects can be used from is also increased, making it easier to open doors. The fire effects for burnt flaming characters and fire rising up out of burn barrels are also changed to the ones used for the projectiles fired sometimes by Zealots. The Flashlight was also made noticeably brighter, and it and the Night Vision Goggles now last for a lot longer than they would in the original game.

Bug Fixes[edit]

Certain bugs have also been patched. Level Interstitial briefings now no longer sometimes fail to show upon level load (although they are still susceptible to someone holding down a key-press for too long). Extra Crispy also prevents most weapons or items from falling through the floor thanks to the addition of new "Lie Flat models" that almost completely fixes this problem that sometimes happened during the original game. Door sounds no longer play twice when a door opens slowly, and The Chosen now play power up pickup sounds correctly instead of after the power up runs out. A bug in the sky present during lightning was also fixed in "C1L11: The Cathedral", and a pain sound that was not previously playing and was instead making a separate clicking noise is now fixed.

Enhancer Pack[edit]

Note: This does not currently reflect the changes made in Version 5.0 of Extra Crispy. As of Version 5.0 the Enhancer Pack is no longer optional.

Expect more weapons, more fire modes, more gore, gameplay enhancements, and pretty much what's expected from yours truly. If you're looking for a fresh new experience with Blood then look no further. Thanks to Nightdive Studio's latest KEX engine release, Blood Fresh Supply has opened up a whole new world for Blood modding.
