Re: Commander Keen - the earth explodes mod

...well, all things considered it's more or less just a matter of a number of needed patches. alternatively though one could make an effort and turn this into a full source code based mod. I'd truly love to do that as the time and effort already spent deserves to gain a finalized release. unfortunat...

Re: KeenWiki: Are graphics-only mods valid?

I second Quillax' thoughts. Mods must be substantial in one way or another. It doesn't make sense to collect have baked modding attempts that eventually got abandoned by their authors. Else the wiki will get flooded with unfinished and pre-alpha state stuff quickly. Work in progress mods (and I also...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

@Quillax I just tried [XkyKeen4] out and it's actually pretty fun to play with! I love it when he shoots, gets on a ledge, or goes through a door. [...] some of the frames have a bit of a heroic look [...] Yeah, right?! If you actually play XkyKeen as a main character he seems very self-confident, ...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

If I recall correctly, the player sprite in XkyKeen4 was unfinished. Did Xky come in to finish the sprite? @proYorp Yeah, XkyRauh produced most of the necessary sprite animation frames. In addition to those Zilem conceivably complemented some missing parts of the set some time ago. But of course Fi...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

[...] But visual baby style just pressed extra buttons in that direction. He lost his "cool" of a sort. @DoomJedi Well, I have a slightly different view of the matter. XkyKeen doesn't look like a baby in my eyes. On the contrary I always had the feeling that the original sprites show a bo...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

Thank you guys for responding so transparently. I think I can better understand your concerns by now. Accordingly - if everything goes well - I will keep two versions for you. One classic and one more progressive styled main character. Costs some extra work, but hey, we all do it for the love of it,...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

There's one question I've been wanting to ask for a long time now: Is Mr. M still involved with this mod? Did he even agree with any of these recent decisions? [...] That is a fair question. as you all know _mr_m_ lost most of the project files due to a hard drive fail back in 2012. so the project ...

Re: Keen6: Discovered a glitch

Wow, I was able to pull off that glitch you found, Benvolio! Several times! [...] if you could, please record it via DOSBox's build in capturing tool and send me the raw material. the video can contain unsuccessful attempts as well, so you don't have to time things perfectly or edit the output.

yeah the classic run and gun shooting slimy mutant monsters game! looking forward for your recordings about imf 2 midi: a quick search resulted in a number of pages that hold midi recreations of the original source material. like for e.g. http://www.arachnosoft.com/main/arrangements.php?id=ultimated...

Re: Recreated Keen 4-6 Source Code

right then. this is a way more specific error message. the error message you've poster earlier just indicated that your setup was faulty in one way or another. for this specific error however we need to wait for K1n9_Duk3, NY00123, lemm or Multivania to answer it. in the mean time please make sure t...

Re: Recreated Keen 4-6 Source Code

nope, those files can stay where they haven been placed. but checking your folder structure is actually a good idea. please make sure your base folder contains a subfolder called BC30. in this folder place all your BORLAND C++ files. instead of running things manually I'd suggest to execute the resp...

Re: Recreated Keen 4-6 Source Code

well, it might be best that you read the instructions (readme.txt) that come shipped with the download package. It is a very detailed guide that should help you setting up files and folder structure before you get started. I highly recommend consulting this manual to successfully compile the code

Re: Keen 1 Redrawn

Zilem is very talented and one of the best when it comes to tweaking sprites. Not sure if Zilem has the capacities right now but should be worth asking. I think I could also give you a hand with those sprites. Maybe not right away, as I plan to do some BoA sprite rotations first. But never the less,...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

I do understand your skepticism. And believe me, I was struggling quite a bit to make a decision. And yes, of course this will takes some getting used to. But honestly I think you should give it a shot as it works so perfectly fine in-game. I'm sure you will like it if you're just willing enough to ...
