Re: Is 1UP even a valuable item?

I do understand that many of the mods might be way too hard for people new to Commander Keen. Those of us who have played Keen since the original games were released and have been members of the online Keen community for almost the beginning, or at least fairly close to it, have played the overwhelm...

Re: Is 1UP even a valuable item?

I understand how people can see a problem with too harsh punishments within a game just for the sake of a single mistake or two, especially when sometimes a game is designed with blind hazards, suicide jumps, etc. to bring about cheap deaths from the player, who can only avoid these deaths through t...

Re: Is 1UP even a valuable item?

I can understand why a lot of people see the 1UP as pointless. But if you play games as they were intended to be played they would become more valuable. Saving, most especially in-level saving makes most Keen games way too easy. To me it is almost like playing with cheat codes all the time. The orig...

Favorite Keen Levels, favorite Keen enemies you play just for sport?

My all time favorite Keen enemy, who is probably one of the most dangerous Keen enemies of all is the Krodacian Overlord in Keen 9: Battle of the Brains. At least once a week, sometimes more, I will play Elevator Access Station and the Krodacian Overlabs on Hard, just to battle the Overlords again a...

Re: The Alphamatic (An Atroxian Realm Mini-Sequel)

:pogo :pogo :pogo Yep. I was starting to wonder if nobody would ever find it. Like most Galaxy mods I start on easy and play the game on all skill levels, complete every level, grab every point, extra life, rayguns, and look to find every secret area and passage. I do not want to just win the game,...

Re: What Music Are You Listening To?

Just found out about Infected Rain from your post. Very congruent with my current interests as I am listening to a lot of Korn at the moment! Infected Rain, Jinjer, Dehydrated, and Butcher Babies are all female-fronted metal bands. Butcher Babies are from here in the US, the other three are from co...

Re: The Alphamatic (An Atroxian Realm Mini-Sequel)

Nope. There are indeed secret lives there (and some more you probably didn't find near there), but that's not what I'm referring to. It just might take... unconventional means to discover. Is the secret an alternate ending? Where instead of the real ending, Keens friends make fun of the player for ...

Re: Suburb Shenanigans

This is pretty good mod. I like it. Obviously there are a few issues here and there. Most of them have been stated already: 1. The tiles and graphics are really cool, though because of mostly only a suburb atmosphere, the levels can be a little bit redundant, but the level design does keep this some...

Re: The Ice Factory is about 20 years old!

......Sigh... Missing Xky's levels... And good Keen 1-3 mods/level packs overall. Has everyone other than me switched to Galaxy? :confused Though I prefer Galaxy, I have played and beaten the official Keen1 - Keen3 and I have also played and completed dozens of Vorticon Mods. I have played all of y...

I have Windows 7-64 bit. I use Alt-Enter to switch to full screen. I did not check the FAQ yet. I will now.

Problems with Dosbox

I do have the latest version of Dosbox 0.74. I have been having issues with it. When it comes time to play Keen and I switch to full screen, it crashes. I have tried to adjust my screen, display and resolution settings, but nothing seems to work.

Re: Dosbox not working properly

Yes, as I said it does disable Aero but even then Dosbox will still not run in full screen once I hit alt+enter. It is most likely a security issue as stated.

Re: Atroxian Realm

I did watch the YouTube play through you mentioned. He does figure out how to solve the levels, but he missed most of the secret areas and I know he did not find all 24 hyper stars. Then again, since I playtested for you I already knew where all the secret areas were before the official release. You...
