Re: Suburb Shenanigans

I can't believe it! As life goes on and I take longer and longer breaks from this place, I always come back to find something marvelous. I remember sending in music for this 5-6 years ago! I just downloaded it and only had time to play through the first couple of levels, but even in that short exper...

Was this the Keenweb mod? I have some folders on my computer dating back to 2010 that I think you released at one point. I could upload those if you want, but I'm not sure if that's what you're looking for. Yes, that was it! Sorry for the bump. Send me a PM or post a link here! Somehow I lost all t...

That file doesn't appear to be in MIDI format, and the music in the video doesn't sound like any MIDI synth I've heard. I'm especially getting an FM-synth vibe from those basslines. I've never played The Incredible Machine before; was there an option to select an output for music (ex. Adlib/Soundbla...

Did you ever release those incomplete mods? Such things are always interesting. Well, the Vorticons 1 mod is here . I had a couple more levels and enemy replacements done back in the day, but lost the files somehow. Barring a miracle, this is the last surviving copy. I've actually been trying to re...

I have been lurking for about the past 3 years. While I never contributed very much to the body of art, music, or mods (I started a Keen 1 mod and a Keen 5 mod and never got around to completing either), I've always liked coming here and seeing the results of some very talented people's labor. In a ...

When I'm not lurking the forums or poking around in my various unfinished Keen creations, I'm busy at university as an engineering student. I'm also an officer cadet awaiting a military pilot slot. Lately, I've found the time to delve back into piano and saxophone. I hope I can carve out some time f...

Topic bump. This mod is stunning! I've been gone from the forums for a while, but I didn't expect to see so many projects in the works when I poked my head back in!

I have no clue as to how you've progressed on this mod since July, but I'd be happy to contribute some tunes if you still need any!

I'm one of those who refused to do military service in my country and did a year of social services instead (caring for disabled people). so, no. Pretty drastic plan change I have to say going from vet to nasa- I was curious to see how countries handled mandatory conscription. I assumed there'd be ...

Military Service

(Beware: details of my life!) Some of you IRC denizens may remember me talking about my plans to open a veterinary practice. (In fact, that's why my title is "Yorp Doctor". Not my most clever handle, but oh well.) As it happens I've had a major change in plans. After working in a vet clinic for a wh...

Bump. I've got an IMF issue, and this seems like the thread in which to ask about it. The volume of my IMF files is very low. Even with "quiet adlib sounds" enabled, the music is pretty hard to hear over the sound effects. I'm using K1n9_Duk3's mid2imf program and also IMFCRUSH. I have not tampered ...

I certainly don't want to derail what has clearly become the secondary topic of this thread... But, revisiting the "English in different accents" bit... Guys, how cool would it be if we had another community story game, where each person narrated his or her own sentences? At the end, we could put th...
