This small add-on for the original Dink Smallwood game and other D-Mods lets the player use a single key to change the blood graphics into nice yellow Smiley Faces. After you've given the Dink Smallwood directory, the installationprogram will place the graphics and the script for it in the directory where they should be. You can use the * key on your numpad to active this little add-on and to turn it off, you can do that with the same key (*) to get normal blood back.

If you kill (or hurt) a monster, you'll see tiny Smileys appear as blood. This happens for each monster you kill or hurt with a weapon or magic. Ducks are a bit different from the others. You'll see ducks who will still get their heads chopped off and the spurting blood animation where Smiley Faces erupt. While the ducks are walking around without their head, Smileys will appear as blood. Now if you kill the duck completely, you'd normally see a blood explosion (well, something like that then), but a large Smiley Face (compared with the small ones for the blood) will smile to you (duh, it's a Smiley Face). Of course, these graphics are also used when a monster hurts Dink.

Then we'll get to something else: what's the use of this add-on? It's fun to have Smileys as blood but for how long? After a few times slashing monsters (and innocent ducks), I changed back to normal red blood. The Smiley Faces are funny for a while but after that they don't offer as much fun as killing monsters with normal blood.

Last thing here, there's an installationprogram to add the Smile Blood but you can't easily remove it - just in case you want it. So you'd have to look in the dinkstory dir for the key script file (that's key-106.c, if you wanna know) and in the graphics dir for the Smiley graphics. That's not a problem for me but oh well, I'll just let ya know
