Re: Misconceptions

How do you know if the plural for Orbatrix is the same as the singular? I looked through the manual on CC314 and I see no mention of Orbatrix in plural. KeenWiki seems to be down at the moment, so I can't check with that. Usually for plurals I always add an S to the end of the alien name (so Gargs,...

Re: Misconceptions

I pronounce it "shikadi" https://memegenerator.net/img/instances/81246600/fair-enough.jpg Glad I could contribute to this discussion. While we're on the subject of alien names, I've never been able to figure what the plural of some of them are supposed to be. I know the plural to Shikadi ...

Re: Misconceptions

As a kid, I mispronounced the word "Bloog" as "blug", rather than "blewg", which is how it's supposed to be pronounced. I don't know why; I guess I just saw the similarities between "Bloog" and the word "blood" and made assumptions about the double O...

Re: Keen 4 Least Favorite Level?

You have to tap the jump button as lightly as you can. It takes some getting used to, but eventually you'll be able to steamroll through levels that have tons of down-jumps, such the Chasm of Chills--and yes, everyone's favorite Keen5 level, Neutrino Burst Injector. But that's a topic for a differen...

Re: I made a mod - Keen episode 59: Underworld Ultimate!

The red gem is indeed inside of the crate. You have to bait the Ugg-Bug into following you, and it'll land on top of the crate, destroying it. If for whatever reason it misses the crate (this has happened to me before), you'll have to reload an earlier save or restart the level, because once the Ugg...

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

Edit: I found the Poison River level and felt sure that I'll complete it in a while... but nope. I guess the exit not fully opening is deliberate, but what item do I need to open it? Some grease? And where is it and how do I get and use it? This isn't made obvious at all, so I'll just tell you: the...

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

It's been a bit since I played this mod, but from what I can recall, the switch in the lower right-hand corner of the level guarded by a Beserky is what opens that hatch.

Castle Ramenstein is notoriously confusing, and has already been discussed in the second page of this thread. Try reading Levellass' tips there.

Re: keen 6 and keen dreams

The physical manual that came with the game, or, barring that, the intermission screen during the demo. If you're interested, Google search "commander keen 6 manual" and the first thing that comes up should be a .pdf file of it from legacy.3drealms.com.

Re: Vortiville jump

Keen3 is loaded with bullcrappy jumps like that one. Attempting to get all the ammo at the exit in Caves of Oblivion while trying to avoid all of the stalactites and stalagmites is seriously not worth the hassle. And has anyone even tried to traverse the rooftops in Cape Canavorta?

Re: The Alphamatic (Version 2 + Marooned Over Mars Expansion)

I don't know that there's much you would need to censor in Atroxian Realm outside of the corpses in the Kridonea Ruins levels, which border on Bio Menace levels of gore, but I can understand. As an adult, it's pretty tame, but if I were a little kid playing that mod, I might have had a hard time wit...

Re: KeenWiki on a new server

I noticed that database error thing, too. It's been a problem since last Friday. I figured it was something that would've been fixed pretty easily, so I didn't bring it up here, but it sounds like it's a bigger deal than I thought.

EDIT: The errors are fixed now.

Re: My keen childhood "trauma"

The first time I saw the Dopefish, it freaked me out, because it was so much bigger than the other enemies...up until it ate a Schoolfish, and then looked at the camera and belched with a derpy expression, and then it became a lot more endearing. To me, the scariest enemy was Robo Red. It was also a...

Re: keen 6 and keen dreams

Why did that version ask for that, anyway? Copy protection. The enemy names in Keen6 were probably not widely known back when the game was first released, and a lot of them sound very nonsensical, even for this series (Bip, Babobba, Blorb, Gik, Fleex, and so on), so the names would be impossible to...

Re: Neutrino Burst Injector

When I say an enemy is "cheap" what I mean is that they get in cheap shots on you very easily. Think of the Vorticon Elites, and how easy it was to get sniped by one. Shockshunds are just that. True, they have one less hit point, and their projectiles can be stopped by your weapon easier t...
