Re: Big update:

9 refuses to work. It gives me an error message that says the .exe file of Keen5e.exe that i used was incorrect. I tried a total of 4 different Keen5e.exe files, none works. Before extracting, did you decompress keen5e.exe? Keen 9 has a special setup batch file that will do the decompression for yo...

Re: Mod Tiles and sprites?

So, you downloaded TKoK, and added the ModKeen/ModID EXE file, correct? The program should be able to work, although I'm not familiar with ModID. (I should try it, though; what proYorp typed sounds very cool.) If ModKeen says it can't run on 64-bit Windows, then try running extract.bat via DOSBox. T...

Re: How much is an original Armageddon Machine 3.5 floppy disk worth?

Welcome to PCKF, monkey5465! Wow, that's so cool! Did you test to see if it works? What version of the game it is? If I remember correctly, the info should be visible on the start-up screen (the one with the dark blue background and purple boxes). I'm not really an expert on the pricing stuff, but I...

Re: Mod Tiles and sprites?

I'll provide a step-by-step process that should answer your question, assuming you're using Windows (things might be different with Linux). For this example, we'll use The Keys of Krodacia: Download ModKeen . Copy-and-paste the program (modkeen.exe) to where the TKoK files are located. While in the ...

Re: Keen 5 Most Favorite Level?

Defense Tunnel Burrh: I love the name, and that the blue background of the level makes it feel chilly. I love that this level is easily broken into 4 segments, and the first most 'complex' segment doesn't require being back tracked to from the more linear segments. The first segment, everything up ...

Re: Keen 2 and 3 preview screens in Keen 1

I love those preview screens! Back when we had just Keens 1, 4, and 6 (demo, not full), those previews were an exciting window to more Keen! Some things that particularly stood out include the odd-looking creature in Keen 2 and Keen being trapped by an egg in Keen 3. The Keen 5 preview screens in Ke...

Re: Pole Foreground Bug explained!

With all the unique bugs featured in Keen 6 I almost want to make a levelpack centered around them. Ride the Blooglet across the slime to win. :crazy Could even name the mod "Aliens Ate My Collision Code!" (I wonder if this bug has any connection to the floating-over-Blooglet bug that Ben...

Re: What is the best Keen Galaxy game as a base for creating mods (and why)?

This is a great topic! It reminds me of a similar topic Bernie made years ago, which is also worth reading and has a lot of good points for each episode! Usually, when I make mods, I just pick an episode and then come up with a design based on that, rather than the other way around. When choosing an...

Sweet! It's finally here! I've been waiting for this! :) Here are my favorites: Energy Flow Systems - My top pick for favorite Keen 5 level! The open design is pretty awesome -- you got a large level where you have to do a fun gem hunt and the pink platforms are a cool way to traverse the level. I l...

Re: It's My Birthday!

Happy (late) birthday, Soul Monster! Hope you had a good one! :birthday Like proYorp, I too somehow thought you were in your thirties (or even forties, I believe). I think it might've been all those cool stories you've shared! Your nostalgia for 50s rock 'n roll may have also contributed to that. Bu...

Re: Link-Keen - Netkeen for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance

The green character is Math Blaster. I did attempt to make keen dreams on the GBA from the Link Keen source code, but I'm not sure the GBA has enough memory for all the tiles for say keen 4,5, or 6. I don't really know. Wow, what you have there looks neat! I would think the GBA should have enough m...

Re: Keen 5 secret level

I think for a while, I also thought the Koraths were called Goplats too, although that might've more been because that's what a lot of other people call those aliens. What made things more confusing, I believe, was that in Battle of the Brains, a type of Goplat is turned into a Krodacian, which acts...

Re: "The Brightest Star" -- An Interpretation of Mortimer's Backstory

Alright, I finally decided to read the first chapter, and wow, that's good! :mort It's neat to learn about who Mortimer used to be like; while still a smart kid, he seemed a lot more hopeful and to have better intentions than whom he would eventually become by the Keen games. I wonder what happened ...
