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?

Re: The PCKF Archive

That's so fascinating to see. At what point did the Keen community become a single forum instead of a bunch of scattered boards? That really looks like the Medieval ages for the community. There was a lot more toxicity way back then. Indeed, some of that stuff is pretty embarassing in retrospect ("...

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

This time, it crashed with an actual error message. "Null pointer assignment". https://i.imgur.com/q4b1N5X.jpg Any of you modders know what causes this? Is there a particular way I can play the level to avoid triggering it? It has crashed a few times at the moment Keen's bullet hits one of the robot...

Re: CGenius 2.3.3 released

Back when I first tried this years ago, the physics didn't seem quite the same as the original games. How is it today?

Re: Atroxian Realm (Version 1.1 Released)

Thanks for the links, I think they will help. BTW, I nearly forgot: https://youtu.be/YTE0QXF_FJc?t=48 . TSK: hilarious!!! I really liked that part of the level too. I really wish that idea (the little platforms that keep you from falling if you do everything right) was used more than just once in th...

@Snortimer: Sorry, haven't read your post until now! Thanks, nice to read that you like it. Yeah, including the InsideTheWeb forums is a great idea! However, the download link in your topic doesn't work anymore. Could you reupload it somewhere, please? :) My apologies for the late reply, here you g...

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

I've tried several times to get past level 3, "Wreck City" on easy mode, and the whole game crashes every time. I have to forcibly kill DOSBox. Here are three save files in which the crash happens shortly after (within a few minutes) no matter what the player does: https://files.fm/u/t2mbvefh I have...

Re: Atroxian Realm (Version 1.1 Released)

Kinda frustrated with Cargo Transit A... I have a vague suspicion that I haven't learned how to use those "air conveyor belts" correctly, as I keep falling through them before the belt ends. Is there any video around so I can check if I'm doing it right? (these things are annoying... just when you e...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

Hey, thought I'd give an update in case anyone else is curious about this graphics stuff. I tried Grafx2 and mtpaint (both highly praised today for pixel art), but neither has an easy way to get at those 8x8 Bayer dither patterns. mtpaint comes closest with its "patterns", but it doesn't have quite ...

Re: Did you know Jill of the Jungle also had a Bible-themed mod?

Almost as if someone said "hey I've got an idea, what about Jill of the Jungle... for boys!" I say "almost" because it turned out better than most things that start with a concept like that. ;) They did that, it was called 'Vinyl Goddess of Mars' and it's... really something. Nah, that wasn't "for ...

Re: Foray in the Forest (development thread)

Ok, I looked it up and I'm pretty sure that this 8x8 Bayer dithering pattern is what was used in Keen: https://devlog-martinsh.blogspot.com/2011/03/glsl-8x8-bayer-matrix-dithering.html https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-NqGXXysf5xY/TXjpYIqahPI/AAAAAAAAAJ0/blKmVWFgv0c/s1600/8x8.jpg I think you had to edit th...

Re:

Finally, the colors in general have been changed ever so slightly to be exactly what the game renders. Thanks, Wikipedia article on EGA, for lying to me about the palette and forcing me to figure it out myself with MS Paint. So what are the correct values? Is the Wikipedia article still incorrect?
