Ok, I'm back now. I had no computer or internet access the last couple days. ZeroX, your minimod was actually one of the central sources of inspiration for AR. I'd really appreciate it if you could dig up a MIDI version of the song that plays in Level 4 (Too Hot replacement). I'll look into respond...

Not to split hairs here, especially since it's not the main focus of this topic, but "Zero X" (which wasn't even the game's real name--it never had one, but in development I referred to it as Glfurlto) doesn't belong on the timeline at all. The focus was to create a medieval fantasy world that exist...

No more promises. If there's one thing I've learned working on projects like this over the years, it's not to make any promises. No projections, no estimates, nothing like that. The fact of the matter is that you don't know when things are going to get done because you're doing it in your spare time...

Unless we want things like Z-1's "Here is the best Commander Keen fangame ever made in the history of fangames. Now I'm going to stop and no you can't have my code, art or anything. Goodbye." The source code was released. Even I have a copy. Don't really see where all the negativity is coming from ...

My intention was never to expand the size of the tileset graphic, just wondering if the unused space was usable. Glad to know it is, as it's looking like I just might have to use it!

Oh man, for real? I thought that the black area and that griddy stuff was unusable. That's awesome.

What tiles can't be used in the tileset? I'm thinking it's possible that I may have to expand into the black space at the bottom of the image, if possible.

He was, yes. He is credited in the game's credits screen as "Creative Director."

Well, it IS a Green Bay Packers helmet, so either Keen's older brother is an all-American football hero or, seemingly more likely, he got it as a gift or some such.

Then again, his father is a famous TV personality, so who knows?

With any luck, I will be releasing a tech demo by either the end of this month or the next. As suggested in the last thread on the old forums, it will be an interior level. It may or may not be a level that makes it to the final version.

I haven't lost to the computer in Paddle War since I was in grade school. You can literally get two or even three shots in on it for the price of one, and all it takes is a steep angled bounce off the the far side of the screen, preferably far left. When the ball respawns, it literally just sort of ...

... what?

Of all the patches it could be, I did not expect the hashing to be caused by this one: #Don't show Press F1 for help sprite %patch $97C9 $90 Uh... what? Is there something wrong with this? EDIT: Yeah, wow. Confirmed with original copy of the game, the one hashing over tiles and not the Game Over gra...
