Re: Space Lobster webcomic??

I was 12 when I played them so I guess I was the target audience? :lol

You can check out my most recently released project on the forum here or my catalogue of mods on the Keen wiki here.

Re: Space Lobster webcomic??

I think this was before I was a member of the forum, unfortunately I don't recall this user.

But, if you're the Slasher I think you are, I wanted to say thanks for your Sporkia series! It was one of the first Keen fangames I played and helped inspire me to get into Keen fangames and modding.

You need to run "UCK4.BAT" in Dosbox, not "KEEN4E.EXE".

Re: Questions around tilesets

Any suggestions for software to make keen music? This is really my first go at any form of composting outside of trying s trial version of fruity loops in the early 00s. I have tooled around with RADtracker because as i understand it when you convert from MIDI to IMF it might sound completely diffe...

Re: Questions around tilesets

Yep that's the guide i'm using and it's very helpful. Awesome, I'm glad it's useful! Be aware that I'm currently in the process of revising it. You may have already noticed some changes, and there will be more in the coming weeks. Particularly: Folders in the modding setup will be renamed: 'BMP' wi...

Re: Why do you like Keen?

I got into Keen sometime around age 5. It all started with hearing the Keen Galaxy pogo stick noise coming from the basement and finding my father playing Border Village. It's hard to narrow down what exactly is my favorite part of the games. I love the lore : I've always been a scifi fan and Comman...

Re: Is there any (official) statement from original game authors/distributors about modding?

Is there any evidence of this, ideally a link to such discussion? I don't have a link, but I can corroborate this info in the case of Tom Hall where years ago someone asked him about my trilogy on twitter and his response was, more or less, "haven't played it but looks cool!". I don't use...

Re: Operation Station Infiltration

Announcement: Xky, who composed music for Return to the Shadowlands, has agreed to return for Operation Station Infiltration! I'm really looking forward to the Keen 5 inspired soundtrack he'll come up with. Update: Multimania has been hard at work bringing my graphics to life and I'm ecstatic over ...

Re: Commander Keen - Aurora Bliss (RELEASE)

To combat "Not enough memory to play background music!", one option not listed in my tutorial is utilizing K1n9_Duk3's IMF crusher. This tool can automatically optimize IMF music and reduce the size of the file, reducing the memory needed for the song in game, without compromising the song...

Re: Commander Keen - Aurora Bliss (RELEASE)

Double posting because this really sucked me in in an unexpected way and I've just finished! I gotta say, this mod really grew on me as I played and toward the end I had come to see it as a flawed masterpiece. One of the things that really lead to my enjoyment is the level design. Being a new modder...

I PMed you some screenshots highlighting what I'm talking about.

Nothing wrong with the story, I just didn't know I was collecting parts from Robots until I met a robot and Keen's like "Sorry pal" :lol

Re: Commander Keen - Aurora Bliss (RELEASE)

I'm 4 levels in on easy mode and enjoying it so far! Discovering the new creatures has been one of my favorite parts, I've only encountered a handful but my favorites so far are the Saptyr and whatever the cloud replacement is. Really like your creature designs, the Ventabilis is pretty cool from wh...

Re: Operation Station Infiltration

I'm happy to announce Multimania will be taking over programming operations for this mod! Currently I'm working to provide frames for all the new enemies so that Multimania can begin coding them. After consideration, these will be: Robo Blue, Robo Green, Robo Yellow, Big Ampton, Sparky Jr, Sparky II...

Re: Operation Station Infiltration

Update: Unfortunately I've made very little progress with this, for the significant reason that K1n9_Duk3 has been gone for some time and thus this project has no engine. While K1n9_Duk3's source code seems a likely platform to get this started, I'm afraid this is beyond my skill. I've considered t...
