KeenWiki: Are graphics-only mods valid?

In the Keen: Modding forum we're having a discussion regarding how skin mods (mods that only change the graphics and nothing else) should be treated on KeenWiki. Since it's kind of a major topic, I decided to bring this up on the PCKF as well, since hardly anyone seems to go to Keen: Modding nowaday...

Re: Stupid References are stupid

It looks like there are some gas prices that are now $3.14. I'm not sure how I should feel about that. It's better than $3.15, I suppose.

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

To those who want to see it in motion, you can do that with XkyKeen4 , which is where the sprite came from. Just note that some frames are either incomplete or never replaced, but not a whole lot. I just tried it out and it's actually pretty fun to play with! I love it when he shoots, gets on a ledg...

Re: What Music Are You Listening To?

Good ol' Bobby Prince Keen MIDIs on repeat! You can't go wrong with them -- they bring back so many keen memories! I'm currently listening to Too Hot to Handle. :pumpkeen I've been playing the Keen games on Windows 98 and since that computer can't play Adlib music, I sometimes played these MIDIs on ...

Re: MILDLY NEAT -- For all your random Keenery needs!

I think it's to make the perspective more consistent. If you look around the world maps (including the Shadowlands), you'll notice that the graphics are usually closer to the 5/6 sprite in perspective than the 4 sprite. I'm actually not sure if any of the artwork have the same perspective as the 4 s...

Re: Last movie you saw

The Thief and the Cobbler (Recobbled Cut Mark 4). Man, what a work of art! I definitely recommend it (either the workprint or the Recobbled Cut Mark 4), especially if you appreciate art and animation and have interest in seeing how far hand-drawn animation can go. Seriously, some of those scenes are...

Re: Avg. Difficulty of Keen1 of series?

I say Keen 1 is the easiest game of the series, although I haven't played episodes 4-6 on easy for a long time. Keen 2 is quite harder, and 3 is even harder than 2! Granted, as proYorp said, only 3 levels are required to beat Keen 3, which neglects the difficulty a lot, aside from the Mangling Machi...

Re: Meaning of ST5UNST.LOG (Netkeen 1 and 2)

A while ago, I installed Keen MakeOver -- both versions. Each version, after installed, came with its own ST5UNST.LOG file pretty similar to the Netkeen duo. I wonder if these programs used a particular installer? I'm beginning to think that maybe K1n9_Duk3 is right about that the file is used for u...

Re: 30 Years of Keen Dreams

Wow, Keen Dreams is 30 already!? Man, I just played that on Windows 98 a while ago (the whole game, on one sitting!) and it's such a fun game! It's quite different from the typical, space-adventurer we all know and love -- it doesn't have a pogo nor a gun of any sort, and it doesn't take place in ou...

Re: Commander Keen: Sunset (K1 mod with new game mechanics)

Thanks for your posts, proYorp! It's really interesting to read about the behind-the-scenes info regarding Sunset! With so many features packed in, I actually think this mod would be great for levelpacks, a community levelpack perhaps! That's a neat idea, it'd be interesting to see how other people ...

Is this mod still in development or is finished? :confused I've been wondering the same thing for a while. This mod has so much promise -- the screenshots Nisaba posted look so cool!

Re: First Keen mod you played

Yeah, I figured a lot of people would say Ceilick's unofficial TUIT trilogy. I thought it would be fun to see how big that majority is and what would the odd ones out say. I'm actually surprised that a few said they played Dead in the Desert before The Keys of Krodacia! A lot of the mods people have...
