Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

No matter how similar or different is the new game to the originals, it does look like the news surrounding it have reminded some individuals about the 90s titles. Additionally, at least until around June 18, Keen 1-5 are offered on Steam for 82% off: https://store.steampowered.com/app/9180/Commande...

Re: Commander Keen 4 & 5 - Composite CGA Editions (by VileR)

Bump.

Looks like someone took the Composite CGA Edition of Keen 4, and modified it to work with Tandy mode 8 (160x200):

Apparently Wine can run KnP games (e.g., Commander Keen 2000) now

Hi again, and happy Mort Day / Late Keen Day! (Should still be Mar 14 e.g., in Hawaii, so I guess that it counts.) For the Linux users (more generally non-Windows?) around here, I've just discovered that you can finally play old KnP games like Commander Keen 2000 with Wine, provided the right condit...

Re: Atroxian Realm (Version 1.1 Released)

Happy Keen Day for all! It is great to see that this has been updated. I already completed this mod beforehand, but to the ones reading this, you should still consider checking this out. As for the fixed bugs: I don't recall any sound-specific lag-bug atm, but wasn't there a problem with the occasio...

Re: Keen IRC Channel

I can still occasionally connect to one of the Foonetic IRC servers, although it hasn't been as stable as beforehand. The #xkcd IRC channel even migrated to SlashNET because of that. I haven't had much success with accessing their website, though. Another recent surge of spam has probably not assist...

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

This is the website of one of the developers of this port: http://www.kevmiles.net/

You can find "Keen Dreams" under "Projects".

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

I have no doubts that Javier is the guy behind Hard Disk Publishing, that's for sure. David Gow did the work on porting Keen Dreams to modern platforms, for the since-removed Steam release. For the (relatively) short period it was back on Steam via Nightdive Studios, Ryan C. Gordon was working on th...

Generally, I was way more into Galaxy/Aliens, but I'm also familiar with Vorticons, of course. Let's finally check this level out!

Re: Similar game to Commander Keen HELP!

Do you roughly remember how many colors does it use, or at least the general style or pattern? Examples: 4-colors CGA mode, 16-colors EGA mode, etc.

Re: Problems with Dosbox

Indeed the DOSBox README has a FAQ. There's also this page: https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/DOSBox_FAQ If your problem is still not resolved, try deleting dosbox-0.74.conf and then letting DOSBox v0.74 create a new one. If there are still issues left, try changing the 'output' and 'fullresolution' setti...

Re: Bio Menace beta (Bio Hazard) is now available!

Side-note: If I don't see more diffs between BH and BM being mentioned here or at Duke4.net, then I might add at least some of them on my own later :) (I suppose the TCRF is a better place for this, though.) Let's add the following. As stated by me in RELEASE.TXT, ModId was used for importing and ex...

Re: Bio Menace beta (Bio Hazard) is now available!

I'm more-or-less going to quote myself from Duke4.net again: In addition to thanking everyone involved with the beta release, I want to give special thanks to the person who decided to include the MUSEINFO.BH1 file (and all the other unused files) in the beta release. Wow, what a great find! Can't b...

A little bit late response, but here it goes: It's finally out in the public! Just thought this deserves a separate topic (cont. from https://pckf.com/viewtopic.php?p=87634#p87634).

Re: Levellass, Are you OK?

First of all, if what I've heard about Lass so far is true, let's hope it'll eventually be much better for her! As for modding, well, I've forgotten to mention this, but we do have, at least for certain games, a few ways other than patching these days. Indeed, we have the Keen Dreams sources, as wel...

Re: Levellass, Are you OK?

Well, I maybe haven't done a lot of Keen modding in the last few years, but either way: We might not know for sure. However, what's clear is that it probably feels like Levellass was behind almost every DOS Keen mod which required some patching in a way, at least since she joined the PCKF. Even if s...
