New Keen 1 level pack by Captainkeen

Nearly a week ago, I received a reply from Joriz. I had sent a mail about old levels created by him and his brother Captainkeen a.k.a. Karz. The latter also received a copy of the reply, and some days later, Captainkeen sent me a previously unreleased Keen 1 level pack containing 16 levels. :) http:...

Re: It's been a while...

Hi Thea! Thanks for accepting the invitation, welcome back. :) It would be either Grandy02 [...] How could you know...? ;) Well, I asked Thea whether anything of Bloogology 314 still exists (besides the splash page image). I didn't even have Internet then, but I read various positive comments about ...

Re: In search for missing fan-games and mods

Thanks for the nice comments. :) Normally I would have little hope for something that lacks a working download URL, was posted 17 years ago and never mirrored by anyone. Fortunately, ChargingMoose chose a webhosting service in 2001 that still hasn't vanished, unlike many other ones. I was also motiv...

Re: In search for missing fan-games and mods

@Quillax @Clara2020: Thanks! :) I am happy to announce that another long-lost treasure has been recovered. ChargingMoose did not only create the first user-made Keen 4 level, he also released the first set of custom Keen 4 levels in July 2002. I found a way to contact him, and now the levels are bac...

Re: Keen 2000 and Keen4ever

I've been able to run old Clickteam games on a 32-bit Windows 7 and a 64-bit Windows 10 using the DLL (although I only tried one game on the latter, which had somewhat choppy scrolling). The game tried on Windows 10 was probably a 32-bit app. When I try to open keen2k.exe, I get the same message as...

Re: Keen 2000 and Keen4ever

Both games can be played with DOSBox by running them under Windows 3.1x, which works very well with DOSBox. The guide at vogons.org is really helpful. Once it's done, many more games are playable with DOSBox. You can copy the installed Windows 3.1x to any device (no need to repeat the installation p...

Re: In search for missing fan-games and mods

Thanks for the nice comments. :) Asking "contemporary witnesses" appears to be the only way to retrieve the lost games and levels. Many of these people don't frequent this place as commonly as they did in the past, if at all... It would probably have been easier if I had started the research 10 year...

Re: In search for missing fan-games and mods

Finally, another work from the list is available again: SupFanat's Keen 4-6 levels. I asked Malvineous since he was one of the people who replied in SupFanat's thread back in 2006. He still had them! :) SupFanat's Keen 4 Level Pack‎ SupFanat's Keen 5 Level Pack‎ SupFanat's Keen 6 Level Pack‎ (the fi...

Re: Ultimate Commander Keen 4/Commander Keen 4 Ultimate Edition

I like all those little details you put into this, such as the possibility to stand on the roofs, the demo version music and other additions in the help menu, and the houses from the Keen 7 tech demo. The new levels are cool, too. Nicely done! :)

Re: Plot of Shadowlands episodes 4-9 revealed!

I put Eps. 4 and 5 in the wrong order. My mistake. Also, hi! Hi there! :) Thanks for paying a visit. I've corrected the order of episodes in the first post. Btw can someone upload these episodes? I can't find them on the website, neither on youtube. Ilsoap's works should still be available on the a...

Re: In search for missing fan-games and mods

Hey I know a thing or two about one of those! Thanks for digging into these old projects Grandy, I didn't realize just how long it's really been... yikes! I had my 4 and 6 year old boys hooked on Keen for a few weeks earlier this year. But they later discovered Minecraft (youtubers :no ) I don't re...

Re: Patchwork Mod IV for the PCKF's 20th Anniversary

lemme know what you guys think about this idea?! As I said before, it's a very nice idea and exploring hand-drawn levels would surely be a lot of fun. :) Now that Roobar mentions it, it would probably take quite some time to adapt a big sketch to a playable level? Would the creatures look like (ani...

Re: Patchwork Mod IV for the PCKF's 20th Anniversary

Many of the great enemy-altering patches we've seen involves reassigning frames and adjusting the cache. All spriters would have to agree that only the default number of frames are used for their own chosen sprite to work on before actually working on it. [...] I also thought about this, we should ...

Re: Patchwork Mod IV for the PCKF's 20th Anniversary

Thanks for your interest, proYorp. :) I had a discussion about this with Nisaba on KeenWiki. I didn't pay enough attention to the fact that these times are different from the mid-2000s when most modders only worked on the significantly less time-consuming Vorticon mods. Not only that a Keen 4 Patchw...

Re: Plot of Shadowlands episodes 4-9 revealed!

Even though I was only the messenger, it's nice to read that you like this. :) Haha, I suspected this would be how the Berkeloids come about in Ilsoap's story. I even did a quick sketch of what I imagined his characters might look like, back in 2017. Although I guessed that this would take place in ...
