Oh, I wasn't thinking of any rule violations in particular. I just though it would be interesting to know how you see those mods and whether or not you have the impression that they bend or even break certain rules.

Re: Captain Rixot - neat hommage to Commander Keen by jlv

thanks for the linux port! this is actually amazing. the controls and velocity feel very close to the originals but still give their own, very convincing touch. appreciate that. And I love the detail that you can quit to DOS :lol https://i.postimg.cc/MTHFb0bh/dos.png the Pat-Pat animation looks pret...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

Of course those mods are outside-the-box mods. I was referring to mods that use the same gameplay as the originals, but break the rules Ceilick had written. I see. Out of interest, how would you categorise Bernies mods with this specification in mind? Perhaps in the future, after much more developm...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

This is great, thanks! You're good at finding secrets. You are welcome! and yeah, I guess as a level designer I have a sense for secrets, even tough I might have missed out a couple of them... I also noticed an inaccessible small secret area in CNG Key Isolation. I might want to rethink the secret ...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

@Fleex: I recorded my sessions and thought I would share them with you. At least for me it always feels rewarding to see other people struggle with my creations :p unfortunately though the videos are no-commentary recordings. But I hope that they still can give some valuable insights. All in all I d...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

[...] Though Keenrush is more of a Vorticon player and modder than for Galaxy, with his impressive creativity I think it would be interesting what he would come up with on his own galaxy mod. I am sure it would most likely be a departure from a lot of the rulebook as well. talking about breaking ga...

Re: Keen 4 Bounder Bug

Commander Keen 4 can be started with the command line argument NOPAN. This causes the game to use less memory at the expense of smooth horizontal scrolling. It also won't let you walk off a Bounder. Whew... I'm wondering, why one would want to use such switch command. This non smooth scrolling effe...

Re: Similarities between Vorticon and Galaxy series and episodes

Yeah, I noticed all this early on. But now that you've shared this detailed side-by -side comparison things got even more clear too me. I have the impression that the Galaxy series is like a come true plan they weren't able to manage in their early Vorticon days. In many aspects all three Galaxy gam...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

Markeen forced me to work with more interesting structures. I know exactly what you mean. I'm actually best in terms of level designing when I tweak and tinker with existing material. That's why I mainly focus on polishing given stuff or refurbishing abandoned attempts. Not only that I learn a lot ...

Re: Happy New Year 2022!

thanks for sharing your stories, guys. Your words really touched me. And the songs you've shared just put me into that melancholic mood... I can't really explain why but I somehow like to share this song with you. This tune captures quite good the mood you've put me in, I guess. Space Oddity by Choi...

Re: Commander Keen 4 Tandy 320x200 16 color version

ah, nice to see that someone else came up with the same idea to toggle the score box on/off mid game. FitF will also be equipped with such a feature. We even picked the same action key to make the score box sprite disappear from screen. sweet

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

Yay! This was a real fun experience. Especially when you keep in mind that the mayor part of the levels were generated randomly by an automated script. The unexpectedness of some sections gave me a good laugh, as Markeen's randomness created some very interesting sections I haven't ever seen by any ...
