Re: Atroxian Realm (Version 1.1 Released)

I recently finished this, and I can pretty honestly say, it's the best Commander Keen mod I've ever played! I was specifically the most interested in its soundtrack, and it is really great, well-made and perfectly fits the game. There are some tracks I really like and which I'm replaying just to hea...

Re: Some great OPL Synth music to listen on my Soundcloud channel

I could potentially see exploring this kind of modern/retro fusion style if Voyage to Veota ever becomes a thing. It seems like it's a nice way to modernize the music without losing that old-school Keen style (not to mention not having to deal with the IMF format). I'm wondering how difficult these...

Is 1UP even a valuable item?

After playing Commander Keen for longer time, I really started feeling that 1UPs are really... pointless items. The whole concept of counting lives, losing live after death and game over when running out of lives becomes useless when you can freely save and load game any time without limitations. Th...

Re: Some great OPL Synth music to listen on my Soundcloud channel

I really love some of these, especially the first two (Twilit Jungle and Scattered Ashes). I'm curious about the approach you used to create these. I noticed some of these titles mention "GENMIDI demo." Is there any chance that's some kind of adlib converter, or did the conversions have to be some ...

Re: The things/places in Keen you were most afraid of?

2) The secret area at the top of Chasm of Chills. I remember the darker shade of blue sky and what seemed like 100 thunderclouds attacking me, but I just looked on the wiki and there's only 2 of them up there... :lol 8. Thundercloud. Unsolid, angry, unstunnable... When I was a kid I felt they were ...

Your most memorable level or place in Keen?

For me, it is the Cave of the Descendents from Keen4, namely the secret area which contains two 1UPs hidden it it and which cannot be escaped in other way than dying. As a kid, I had really plenty of time to spend playing computer games, and I was always very curious about some special corner cases ...

Re: Some great OPL Synth music to listen on my Soundcloud channel

Hey, this is pretty sweet, dude. Thanks! I'm especially liking the Peer Gynt one - In the Hall of the Mountain King is one of my favorite pieces. It'd make a pretty good ringtone; if I ever feel like fussing about with new ringtones may I use that? Yes. I also have full version of that song so I ca...

Some great OPL Synth music to listen on my Soundcloud channel

Re: Is Commander Keen music weak?

... Thanks for some technical explanation. I was kind of expecting a response like this, now I know someting more about IMF format as you put some light on all this. Commander Keen is really a superior game, mostly about the gameplay and originality, and good graphics. Now I also understand better,...

Re: Jill Of The Jungle 4

Well, you can finally check it out here . I'm pretty sure you could come up with a better user interface. Since the tool was written without a GUI toolkit, most of the interface is just something thrown together to get the job done. The biggest problem for you would probably be getting the objects ...

Is Commander Keen music weak?

Hi. Even since my earlier gaming times, I always thought, that Commander Keen music was rather inferior/weaker/not that great, compared to music from other games I played that time (speaking only and exclusively about Adlib/OPL-based music). Well, I actually liked Commander Keen music in the sense, ...

Re: Misconceptions

the real question is, did anyone here actually see the Perilous Pit as it was intended? Well, after I grew up and learned English, I could actually understand the level name. Then I looked carefully at the graphics, and from then, I saw it really like a hole in the ground. Earlier, when I was a sma...
