Ah yes. How could I forget that.

Maybe because it is a thing from anno 2004. The 'purple blood' mutator BigD did.

I tried it. See in the screenie what funny thing happened.

Not sure why, but my guess is it is because AlienSwarm has changed (been updated) since then.

Apart from that strange effect, the technique used in that mutator will NOT solve my problem. As already mentioned in the Readme, the mutator didn't get rid of the normal blood patches, it only added the purple ones.

I dug in the scripts and tried things for days now, but still no luck. The possibility of toggling green/red alien blood really complicates things. It only happens on the client side, and it should seem that there is a way to turn it completely off. But no, no easy way at least.

Damn, how can a thing seeming so simple turn out to be so complex!
