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

I didn't actually find the Kreegs the biggest problem in the final levels (playing on Easy). They're terrifying, yes, but I found that I could usually avoid them or jump over them. Sometimes I got them to fall off ledges (I think they move a bit when they begin shooting...). In some ways, they were ...

Re: New audio recording of a Commander Keen 4 song

OK GUYS, YOU READY? :dead2 https://youtu.be/5HqH7fg_iws I really liked what you did with the melody & harmony 30 seconds before the end there. These are mostly really good, though occassionally I wish that certain more tricky rhythms in the original melody would not get "straightened out"/simplifie...

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

Finally got around to finishing this. I was playing on "easy" because I got spooked by all the comments about how difficult it was. For the most part, I found it a rather enjoyable mod. I especially LOVED the "Atomic Rails" level. Even though it was difficult, the combination of great music and good...

Re: Terror from Outer Space

I seem to have gotten into a non-stop crash situation in the level Trogg Pod. From this saved game, whatever I do, DOSBox crashes after a while: https://files.fm/u/8kt625nb Is there an easy way to die and restart the level without setting Keen's lives to 0? (supposing there are no enemies around to ...

Re: It's been a while...

Welcome back, Thea! Perhaps you remember me from back in the day. It sure is fun that a lot of the old-timers seem to return here every so often. We had Ilsoap and Geoff returns a while back, among others. I hope this board stays alive so it can keep happening. :dopekeen If you're in the mood to try...

Re: Plot of Shadowlands episodes 4-9 revealed!

I put Eps. 4 and 5 in the wrong order. My mistake. Also, hi! Hi! I watched the 1st episode again and I must say that it's still got it, after all these years. The key to its success is a good story arc structure and a good sense of timing for individual scenes. From the quoted synopses, it certainl...

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

Um... I mean... I guess? I'll just think of this as a spin-off that takes place in an alternate universe. The trailer reminds me of Fairly Odd Parents. Nice animation. It's clear that they weren't going for faithfulness to the original here, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's bad as a standalone...

Re: Patchwork Mod IV for the PCKF's 20th Anniversary

I might be interested in this hand-drawn idea. I already have all the tools and skills needed to do it. Tracing the original level to then do a hand-drawn version of it (that will later be scanned and put into the game) could be done in one of two ways: 1) For those who own a light table (or a glass...

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

Add this at the bottom of your ROIB.PAT file ( before the line with the "%end" command) and let me know if it still crashes. Thank you, incredible work, this seems to have fixed the crashing issues! :potter I tested it with my save file and it plays normally now. Also, the stars have reappeared abo...

Re: Atroxian Realm (Version 1.1 Released)

Thanks a lot, you've solved the mystery. My cycles were set to "max". When I set them to 3000 instead, the conveyor belts now work properly! Unfortunately, the game also begins to stutter, so I guess my Pandora (at least at 700mhz) isn't fast enough. It hasn't been a problem for the other Keen game...

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

You are correct! Thanks for the help. I had actually already sent an email to Bernie asking about it, and got the answer from him as well.
(Also, he said that he doesn't remember what he did with the Super Duper patch, so he won't fix the crashing bug)

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

It doesn't though. That's for an earlier level, to solve the sequence of buttons to cross the river to Upper Roib. Here's the map of that level, there's nothing about planets on that rock: http://www.shikadi.net/wiki/keen/images/2/2c/Roib_22_Stone.png The planets puzzle is here, upper left: http://...

Re: Atroxian Realm (Version 1.1 Released)

I seem to be getting a bug leading to Cargo Transit B being unsolvable. It's at the point which is at 6:30 in this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=gh7ScIE3NtU The red platform doesn't get carried where it should by the conveyor belts. Instead, it just falls down here and stays there (the first ...
