Issues fixed[edit]

Looping inked audio[edit]

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 version)[3]
  1. Download this zip file and overwrite the files Game.fev and Game_Low_Memory.fev in the game's main sound directory <path-to-game>\de Blob 2\Data\Sound\EN with the ones included in the zip.
  2. Run the game.
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 on both files.
  4. Run the game.
