Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

I also noticed that one or two 1up secret areas, I can't remember which, seem to be unmanageable. IIRC two of them require to drop onto a moving platform. Thing is, that you can't really locate Keens position as he walks behind foreground tiles. this makes things unnecessarily hard IMO. And indicat...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

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 This is great, thanks! You're good at finding secrets. I now understand what you mean about the level borders. Especially with the original game b...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

While talking about glitches here are some further tile info errors I came across: Thanks for the detailed reports. Markeen was very inconsistent about solid vs. not when forming platforms, leading to climbing glitches. I fixed most of these when making the levels, but clearly not all! I fixed the ...

Re: Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

Thanks for playing! I'm glad you had fun. To me the overall environment had this alien technology kinda vibe as some areas where structured in a way I really wouldn't have expected them to be. I'm pretty happy with that vibe. My early failed attempts at Galaxy modding had a lot of very boring, regul...

Fleex & Markeen's Keen 5 Level Pack

Happy new year, PCKF! I'm excited to release a somewhat new kind of level pack: a collaboration between myself and Markeen. Several years ago I released some development snapshots of Markeen , a random Keen Galaxy level generator. It's still very far from creating playable levels, but it can create ...

Re: Welcome to the migrated PCKF!

Thanks! :)

The upgrade is complete. We now have faster and unbounded (within reason) storage. You may need to flush DNS and/or do a hard reload to reach the new server.

Re: Favorite PCKF threads

Yeah, non-ASCII characters got misencoded in the forum migration a few years ago. Some of them, particularly curly single quotes, got mangled into illegal character sequences that PHP chokes on. I fix the major issues as I find them - all the threads you linked should at least be able to load now - ...

Re: Keen Awards 2020: Winners

The poll threads were archived to a hidden subforum to avoid clogging the topic lists with the many small threads. I think Grandy02 has screenshots of the results saved - but if not and if there's interest, I can make a screenshot album of the final results. I'm sorry that I was so inactive again th...

Done, though this thread's ID changed due to a bit of an oops on my part.

Re: Welcome to the migrated PCKF!

phpBB recognizes some automated web crawlers, like search engines or web research bots. I had rate-limited those two quite a while back, but apparently they're more active now. We don't get any value from Ahrefs or Semrush, so they are hereby blocked. (The change might take a bit before becoming eff...

Re: Welcome to the migrated PCKF!

The forums are now updated to phpBB 3.3.5 and, as of yesterday, PHP 8 . The latter upgrade should make pages load faster, but as a relatively new major language/runtime release, it may have some incompatibilities with large applications like phpBB. Please let me know if you notice any strange behavi...

Re: How to play mods?

Welcome to the PCKF! You are right that play.bat launches the mod. While I don't know exactly what is necessary for the drag-and-drop method to work, I suspect the problem with launching from within DOSBox is the current directory. To run something in DOSBox, you first need to "mount" the ...

Re: Everytime I open PCKF I get this

Sorry about this. An intermediate Let's Encrypt certificate expired a couple days ago. Some browsers were able to determine the updated intermediate certificate automatically, but some weren't. My server should now be explicitly providing the full updated chain on both PCKF and K:M. Please let me kn...
