Re: Keen GBC MIDIs

As an aside, Benvolio, that screenshot of Midisoft Session brings back a LOT of memories for me--that was my first MIDI editor, back when I was in 7th grade! I later moved to Midisoft Studio 4.0, and used that until I updated to Windows 7, which no longer allowed me to run it. :( I loved that softwa...

Re: Keen GBC MIDIs

Thanks! I'd never played the Keen GBA game, either, and I figured I should rectify that. I found it a little confusing, and it took me a while to figure out how to activate switches, and ultimately I decided I didn't want to spend the time & energy to play it all the way through... but the music for...

Re: COSMO'S COSMIC ADVENTURE SOURCE CODE RECONSTRUCTED!

Thank you, K1n9_Duk3, for that in-depth response! You've pretty much identified exactly why I lost steam on XkyKeen4 and eventually gave up. I have no experience working with "The Stack" and assembler language, and all I was doing was poking around in the .EXE with a hex editor and trying to intuit ...

Re: COSMO'S COSMIC ADVENTURE SOURCE CODE RECONSTRUCTED!

Can you guys please help me understand the difference between "patching" and "source code mods?" Like... a source code mod would be changing the actual game code, changing the hard-coded values for, say, text and graphics. Modding would be... intercepting values as they are placed in memory, to chan...

The design of the Chaos Tempest is interesting! I wonder how the new enemy will behave.

Re: My first track

Lots of parallel fifths in there, at the beginning! But you do some fun stuff with obfuscation of the downbeat near the end, and I appreciate how metered and patient it feels.

Is this for a KeenMod you're working on?

Re: Is Commander Keen music weak?

Gernot, do you write music? :)

I have to admit, the train-of-thought transmissions you share are a bit hard to follow at times.

Re: How to put an help text in Keen 6

I'm a Deputy Administrator over at Keen:Modding and to be honest, there are an awful lot of spambots posting on the page. Some days I check the board and there are only a dozen spam posts in the queue that need to be denied; other times I've encountered over 300! I don't know what sort of anti-spam ...

Re: New PCKF Logo

If you can manage a script to randomize it between all of the above (and more as they come) that'd be truly Keen. :)

Re: New audio recording of a Commander Keen 4 song

I'm really torn on the Guard Post mix. It's got a delicious sort of ToeJam&Earl feel to it; but it's so very different from the original tune, which is very dear to my heart. I kept hoping that the bass would bust out the heavy-swung octaves as a callback, but it never came. Nice work, either way! T...

Re: New audio recording of a Commander Keen 4 song

Truly amazing!!! Xky Rauh would love this, shame you can't tag people in posts... I do love this. :) Truly adorable and well put together! Is there any footage of the live players, or was this all synthesized instrumentation? Part of me really wants a more ruddy tuba part, but part of me thinks it'...

"Call Apogee Cay Aardwolf"? :p
Yep! That's right. Wondered what it would be like in SGA. I supposed Aardwolf might be closely related to Vorticons.
Shouldn't it be "Say Aardwolf" though? :}
