Issues fixed

Looping inked audio

When Blob gets damaged with black ink and starts losing paint he usually starts making weird disgust sounds. In the console versions of the game he stops making the sounds once he touches water and gets clean, but on PC he continues making the sounds infinitely until you either die and lose a life or exit the stage.
Instructions (Steam & GOG versions)[3]
  1. Download this archive.
  2. Go to the <path-to-game>\de Blob 2\ directory.
  3. Overwrite Data folder with the one included in the downloaded archive.
Instructions (Steam & GOG versions)
  1. Go to the game's main sound directory <path-to-game>\de Blob 2\Data\Sound\EN.
  2. Open the files Game.fev and Game_Low_Memory.fev with a hex editor such as HxD.
  3. Search for any instance of the text blob_vo_inkd and replace the words inkd with none in all instances in both files.
