Re: SGA: how to figure out the language from scratch

Lol at age ten I didnt know what a Pogo was, either... I think that was a generational thing not a language one though! My generation was more Harry Potter and Pokémon cards.

Re: SGA: how to figure out the language from scratch

Entertaining vid for sure. I did love figuring this kind of stuff out as a kid, like deciperhing various rune alphabets from The Hobbit/Lord of the Rings. Of course for the longest time I only had Keen1 and, after a bit, Keen4, so by the time I progressed beyond this I had long-since seen the Keen6 ...

Let's face it... Bethesda/Zenimax's Keen game is going nowhere and they know it.

Re: Announcement 1 of 2: 'Bounty Hunting Brouhaha' v1.0 is finished!

Wow! Honestly I had no idea about this project really (or if I once did, I forgot!). Gotta say this is fantastic, reflective of the massive amount of work that gets put into Galaxy mods. This has plenty of the humour we love in mods, great art and music, and incredibly good levels. There is a real k...

Re: Commander Keen Remastered (New Game)

I really encourage this project. But just can't help but wonder is there any risk our community could face the wrath of the Big gaming industry and its lawyers, in a way that 3Drealms and successors weren't in the slightest bit bothered with?

Re: Corrupt A Wish game

Granted. You find a vintage 1970s synthesizer worthy of Moroder himself on eBay for $10 but you find someone left the batteries in for decades and caustic bilge has leaked out and irreversibly corrupted the circuitry.

I wish R.E.M. hadn't called it a day.

Re: Commander Keen Remastered (New Game)

This is neat!
Looks like a huge amount of effort went into this! Looks incredible! I hope you make a fully formed project of this, your good work deserves it

Re: Icecubes, god mode and a bug in Keen 1

Keen's maximum jump height depends on the CPU speed. Tell me more about this! Playing Keen1 as a kid on 7mHz 8086 I could have sworn keen jumped higher - not every time but intermittently. Then I thought it was version 1.0 being different but when I eventually transferred that exact copy of Keen1 t...

It says it on their website!

Sorry if the image is huge, I have no idea how to do things I was able to do as an infant in the 20th century, on 21st century technology.

Re: Make Something Keen challenges

I bet this could be done. Maybe with Keen1. Keen sprite could alter the Yorp sprite properties using some mechanism similar to how the items in Fall Up affect the Keen sprite.

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

Thanks for finding the gameplay video. The game is far more terrible than I even imagined.

Re: Play Commander Keen in a Web Browser

This is cool, dark-cyan (?teal) border and all. The pc speaker sounds sound very crisp and shrill (I compared dosbox original Keen1 through same headphones). This sounds more like original hardware rather than the softer sounds we are used to nowadays. It opens on my phone but sadly I don't know how...

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

The site you linked states it is not compatible with any of my devices. And the Google Play store on my phone doesnt' even list it. (In the UK). How on earth do they expect a game, which is unlikely to gain any huge amount of hype based on what we have seen, to even break even if it won't work on or...
