This is my Mod for Painkiller: Battle out of Hell. The game is great as it is, however, even with the last patch applied (1.64) some bugs still remain unsolved. I took  the challenge to fix those in this Mod.

Besides fixing bugs and omissions, this Mod changes some aspects of the game. There will be new Tarot card conditions waiting for you as well as new Secrets in a lot of levels, some Tarot cards are stronger and work in combos however, most of them are more costly than before…but they’re worth it. I encourage the player to try to find as many Secrets as possible (both old and new), especially the Holy Items.

  • A new card is now available in BooH. Very efficient, however some work is required to get it:). It will serve you well.
  • A new difficulty is now available. Harder than Trauma, with a lot of unique changes, clever and deadly enemies , with a more unforgiving system and some modified levels, this difficulty will provide a good challenge. You’ll have to prove your worth first before playing it:).  For those who still can plow their way through Ordeal…there is a surprise waiting for them, one that may provide them with enough challenge in the future;).
  • Dynamic Lights have been integrated too. Thanks to Sviatoslav for initial porting of those in Painkiller: BooH.
  • The Scoreboard has been enhanced to better fit the new Tarot card conditions.
  • For those interested, the installer will place a complete Changelog in the Painkiller root folder\Ordeal Mod useful documents folder;).
  • Ordeal Mod needs Powermad 3.62 to be installed beforehand.
  • The Mod is available in English, Polish, German, Romanian (the game as well as the Ordeal and Powermad Mods where fully translated) and Spanish.
  • Please uninstall any other Mods (except Powermad) before installing the Ordeal Mod. It is highly recommended you also empty your SaveGames folder located inside the Painkiller root folder.
  • For more info on how to install the mod check the archive for the Ordeal Mod- Installing and Uninstalling.txt file:).
  • Have loads of fun with this nearly perfect project that took around 6 months to complete:P.
