There was a function called UTIL_Setspark or something. Look where this function is defined i guess there is other functions about that blood spray above and below.

If not;
then check UTIL_setsparks definiton. i guess there is functions about TE_spark or something. Go where TE_spark defined. You'll see List of Temporary entities Starts with TE_ there should be blood entity or similar, use it for making your own function like UTIL_setspark. It shouldn't necasserily to be a blood entity any particle effect may be used to simulate original blood.

İf there isn't a temp entity about it, i believe this feature still exist in engine, but i dont know how to make dll functions to call this feature.

Email who made similar alpha half-life mods they may give you further information.

And you have to search these sites and these functions to learn.

nice, is it more accurately resembles original, or more proper way to make it? can you sometime post it here or to tutorial section so everybody can get access to knowledge.

it was just a little copy&paste job from SHAFT source code, so i won't be making a tutorial on that, i think everybody will figure that out :)
