Re: The Great Galaxy-Mod Bug Hunt 2020

I just added new version of Ocflore and Suburbs. The update for Suburb Shenanigans fixes the bug that Roobar found (the Gardener's hitbox was different for one sprite, causing him to float and get stuck) The Ocflore update fixes a problem with the hitbox of the Enkri Meager (brown flying thing) that...

The Great Galaxy-Mod Bug Hunt 2020

Just to get this out of the way first: When I refer to Galaxy-Mods, I'm talking about all the mods for Keen 4-6 as well as Keen Dreams, not just the for games that were actually part of the "Goodbye, Galaxy!" series. As some of you might already know, I started digging deep into the realm of Galaxy...

Re: New Gameboy Game: Black Castle

I just gave this a quick try on my 386.
Fun little game, but I only made it to level 2-2 before I got a game over.

Re: Marooned on Mars mod

I get this message: "drive C is mounted as local directory C:\OneDrive\Desktop\keen 1\ z:\>C: C:\>" From what I gather, you dragged and dropped the folder onto DOSBox. Doing that will just mount the folder as the C drive in DOSBox and that's all. You can absolutely do this, but that means you'll ha...

Re: Marooned on Mars mod

Mods usually need to be run via the included batch file (PLAY.BAT in this case). Just running KEEN5E.EXE will not work. You will also need to provide your own copy of KEEN5E.EXE and copy it into the mod's folder. The version of KEEN5E.EXE must be v1.4, which should be the version you get when you bu...

Re: keen 6 and keen dreams

Bethesda doesn't own Keen, but Bethesda Softworks might have been the "official" publisher for the last 10 years or so. Technically it's ZeniMax Media who owns id Software. And ZeniMax also owns Bethesda (both the publisher "Bethesda Softworks" and the dev team "Bethesda Game Studios"), among other ...

A fix for a bug in the original code where it could crash if the game was saved while things were flower-powered.
There's a similar problem with the "Zzz" sprites if the game was saved while Keen was sleeping. Did you fix that as well?

Re: Keen 10: Mirror Menace

Szemi is wrong. That error is most definitely fixable.

Re: How to put an help text in Keen 6

The keenmodding forum seems to be pretty much dead. I have seen a few relatively recent posts asking for patches or patching help that didn't get a response. I'm not sure which patch you're referring to (a link would have been helpful) but if it is the same patch that's used in "Mirror Menace", then...

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

Yeah, I have explored some of the .EDS files and I'm pretty sure that it's a proprietary format. My guess is that the ED stands for "Eden" and the S stands for "Sound". All of the files in the "Images" folder have the extension .EDI and the files in the "Levels" folder have the extension .EDN or .ED...

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

File extensions don't necessarily tell you anything about the file format itself. Just look at the Keen games and their .CK1 to .CK6 extensions. It's possible that those .EDS files use a relatively common file format and just had their extension changed. But it could also be a completely proprietary...

Re: Korath III problem

Fuses can only be broken if Keen lands on them with the pogo stick and Keen has a high vertical velocity. Since there is almost no headroom above the fuse, it is difficult to gain enough velocity. Playing on easy doesn't just affect the number of enemies in the levels and how many shots you get for ...

Re: Updated- 'The Ruin of Roib' - beta v3

Thanks for popping in. I fully share your sentiment about the worldbuilding and the gameplay balance. I'm open to suggestions on how to "fix" the difficulty. I have been playing around with a patch that makes the Kreegs stunnable if you find that you have no other option. It would require multiple h...

Re: Updated- 'The Ruin of Roib' - beta v3

Although in all honesty, I'm not sure the game is actually "fairly" beatable in any case. Personally I found the last level, the palace (particularly that room with the plants) and the final boss battle impossible to beat without using God Mode (I found that machine simply too fast to outrun for ve...
