I certainly hope that at least a few people do remember Ordeal Mod, published more than a year and a half before. If not, then here’s your chance to catch up and even leap one step forward with Ordeal Mod Version 2.

A lot of bugs (I mean A LOT) still plague the original game fully patched even with the Ordeal Mod Version 1 installed. This version of the Mod fixes 99% of them with only a few exceptions (un-fixables or map bugs). This version also fixes bugs present in Ordeal Version 1.

The Mod also introduces all new features like controllable Demon Morphs, new lights and dynamic lights for Souls and CheckPoints, a lot of new original secrets, a multitude of new and balanced card unlocking conditions (usually two per level), new levels (based on MP architecture) with very good Painkiller gameplay, new HUDs to choose from and a generally improved level atmosphere. A new money system has been introduced. It is more unforgiving but also fair and players will no longer be able to cheat the money system by changing the screen as it counts the money.

The “Ordeal” difficulty is finally finished since the “Ordeal” difficulty in Version 1 of the Mod was merely a blueprint. The difficulty has been improved in every possible way and will bring new enemies, altered level parts and limited quicksaves (in levels that actually have those ) plus all the other changes that the “Ordeal” difficulty had already made in Version 1 of the Mod (improved and fully customized monsters, reduced Demon Morph time, no controllable Demon Morphs, Golden Cards last less, monsters are smarter, tougher, stronger and faster and only a few levels have quicksaves). This difficulty is dedicated to all faithful and hardcore Painkiller players.

Ordeal Mod Version 2 will suit players of any skill from beginner to hardcore. Just choose the right difficulty and go up when you feel ready either importing your scores and money across difficulties or not. You’ll have to prove your worth to get to the “Ordeal” difficulty but the effort is well worth it. You’ll be ready for it when you do!

The changes above are only a small (very small) part and those of you who are curious will check the Short Changelog and those who are really into seeing behind the scenes and details for every single change and fix, are probably interested in the Detailed Changelog.

The Mod fully supports Painkiller: Black Edition and the original Painkiller release with the addon Battle out of Hell patched to version 1.64 and is available in English, Romanian, German, Polish, Spanish and Russian.

Ordeal Mod Version 2 requires that the Painkiller 1.64 copy you own be patched with Powermad 3.62 beforehand. The Mod archive comes with Powermad as well. DO NOT have any other Mods installed.

Check out the trailer below for some action and get a taste of some of the features that may or may not bring Painkiller BooH or Black Edition close to perfection.

I discovered other copies of this Mod on several foreign trackers and sites.  They generally come with the whole game and some CHANGED FILES AND IT ALSO LACKS THE IMPORTANT POWERMAD, THUS, CREATING BUGS.  PLEASE DO NOT TRUST ANY OTHER DOWNLOAD SOURCE THAN THIS ONE. This is the official version.
