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

Just in case anyone one day decides to have a go at fixing it, here's a save file in which the error is 100% reproducible: https://files.fm/u/p8cz8abd Also, here it is in txt format (copy+paste into notepad and save as SAVEGAM2.CK4 - although I'm not actually sure if this method works...)

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 ...

Grr... :garg
I still can't figure out Gleem City.
Found this playthrough of it, but the guy just uses the jump cheat to get the blue gem, 15 minutes in:

What's the proper way to solve that planets puzzle?

Re: Keen 3 in Galaxy style

Looks good!

Even though CK3 is my least favourite game of the Commander Keen series, because the level design is so obviously rushed, and the frustratingly high difficulty of many levels. Although, I suspect that adding the ability to save within levels (as in Galaxy) would make it more playable.

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

Hmm... Gleem City has some sort of puzzle with rotating the 4 planets of the Roib system that I can't solve. Is the answer in another level that I haven't beaten yet? Last Outpost , another level that has Super Dupers, also has random crashes. I think it's safe to say at this point that the crashes ...

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

The crashes are most likely caused by an error in the patch file. I'm now getting very similar crashes in the "Sick Forest" level. Sometimes the Keen sprite even disappears from the screen, while the game keeps running, though usually everything freezes except for the music. Since those are the onl...

Re: Atroxian Realm (Version 1.1 Released)

I'm playing on normal. I've tried just "strong jumps" while holding the jump key all the way, they stop before reaching the 3rd-last sparkly thing. If I try a weird not-quite-full-height jump, go from the very edge, it sometimes seems to catch a particular spot of acceleration and reaches the 3rd-l...

At 11:50 there... How does he do it? I'm really at a loss, I've tried it countless times. I can never get closer than the 2nd-last white sparkly thing, and even that rarely. What's the theory behind making that jump?
