Re: Announcement 2 of 2: Beta testers required for a new Keen 6 mod

West Tundra Town is solvable without cheats. On the double bridge section you can do it without both bridges open. There is a trick unique to Keen 6 you cannot do in Keens 4-5. In Keens 4-5 you push up to flip a switch. In Keen 6 you have to jump in order to flip the switches. When you want to flip...

Re: Customized Screen Update Code For Keen 4-6

This seems helpful. I usually fix these issues by setting DOSBox to run as "ega" instead of "svga_s3", which works most of the time unless the mod has a changed palette. Can this be manually added into mods for personal use (like how people patch in infinite lives if the mod doesn't have it by defau...

Re: Announcement 2 of 2: Beta testers required for a new Keen 6 mod

I've been testing this the last couple of days, I'm almost done with my playthrough as Keen, need to start editing the videos soon, but there's a few big issues I should probably report now. Some of the levels toward the end have been unwinnable without the use of cheats. Syllypryde already detailed...

Re: Record amount of users online on both forums

I got another Error 508 recently, plus a new error when trying to open the Other Keen Stuff subforum: https://i.postimg.cc/T3DLbyyq/sql-error.png This only happened once, a few days ago. I can only wonder if it's related to the new Bethesda game coming out Y'know, considering the latest online-users...

Re: Need art help for big Keen easter egg/tribute

When is the deadline estimated to be? I’m already swamped currently with IRL obligations, so unfortunately I may not be able assist much, but I’ll share this that I was working on awhile back. It’s unfinished, but maybe someone could use this as a starting point. https://i.postimg.cc/9f0drj73/bluebi...

Re: Announcement 1 of 2: 'Bounty Hunting Brouhaha' v1.0 is finished!

So cool to see this finally out. Been looking forward to it since the beta. I've replayed a few of the levels so far. I'll probably write a more in-depth review when I fully finish it, but for now I’ll mention a few little bugs I’ve found. At the end of the title sequence, the Kohntarkosz_ logo stay...

Re: A guy I went to school with interviewed Andrew Kepple!

Andrew Kepple... wait, that's TooMuchSpareTime, isn't it? He still pops by here every now and again!

(For the record, I was not in the Keen community at that time, but I have heard the legends of him.)

Re: Announcement 2 of 2: Beta testers required for a new Keen 6 mod

HYPE

I'd be very interested in doing more beta testing for this one! A bit short on time this week, but I would like to try to do another video play-through. ;D
I take it there's no deadline this time?

Also, Keen 6 mod? Heck yes! Not many of those.

Re: Icecubes, god mode and a bug in Keen 1

Keen's maximum jump height depends on the CPU speed. Will changing DOSbox cycles emulate this effect? Most interesting! I guess that also explains this: https://youtu.be/8jhGnLED7wc?t=485 For context, NY00123 had done some experimenting with getting the impossible lollipop in Capital City, and in h...

Re: Icecubes, god mode and a bug in Keen 1

I've seen a similar bug in Keen 2 where activating God Mode alters the behaviour of rendered Scrubs, sometimes making them fall off the ceiling, and offsetting their position a bit (most noticeable in trails where multiple Scrubs that were evenly dispersed become staggered).

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

:dead2 Quite a bit behind schedule, isn't it? I seem to recall they announced that they would do a beta release "soft launch" in certain regions to start with, maybe that's why it's not available for everyone. Ironic considering how much the actual Keen fanbase is spread across the world. Even with ...

Re: Record amount of users online on both forums

Same. I'm getting that a lot, trying to open different threads. There were only like 23 guest users on at one point but things were still acting up. Keen:Modding seems to be working fine for me though.
This is officially Very Bad.

Re: Record amount of users online on both forums

I was just now noticing the high amount of guest users online. Was over 300 on PCKF a half hour ago. Wonder what's causing the huge influx of traffic? The normal longtime average has been 30-70 guests, at least that's what I've usually seen. I also noticed a seemingly pretty high amount of new regis...
