Re: Meaning of ST5UNST.LOG (Netkeen 1 and 2)

My guess is that it is just innocent tomfoolery, the kind of joke that would have gone down better in the carefree '90s/early '00s than nowadays. But better to run it on a clean set up or VM first just to be sure...

Re: Do you like Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure?

Looks to me like the game is running slower than the original but also I get the impression there are significantly fewer frames in the CG version, maybe it's a 1:2 ratio. A generally low framerate does suit Cosmo to an extent, maybe fitting in well with the 8px block scrolling.

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

was freeware Can software cease to be freeware? Yeah anyway I agree, game mechanics look a little suspect. Not that Keen Dreams mechanics were ever wonderful but this is egregious really. That said, I've never played a platformer on a console so I don't know maybe it's necessary to have these more ...

Re: Download Links for Marooned on Mars soundtrack?

What format did they come out in?

If proper format conversion methodologies fail you, there's always "record stereo mix" on audacity, has served me well for years for mp3 quality audio.

Re: Keen Dreams somehow makes it to Nintendo Switch

As an adolescent, the melon lips struck me as slightly lewd, moreso than in any way race related. I would hope the guys making Keen would not have allowed any race related unpleasantness to enter their work. They seem to have had openminded views judging by the deeply tanned Princess Lindsay being a...

Re: Original tilesets for Keen 1-6, so that users can modify (custom recolored VGA tilesets for Keen 4-6 avaiable here)

I think this 256 colour project is really cool and nearly everything you've done looks great. I do agree, however, regarding the Bloogbae (sic) Recreational District background, that the original looks better. However I would suggest you try dithering of a similar softness to the original, using the...

His career commenced when he demonstrated his gift for blues guitar in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers on their album A Hard Road (1967). The Bluesbreakers also essentially were the springboard for the careers of Eric Clapton and of ...

R.I.P. Peter Green

We have lost one of the true all time greats of rock today. The soundtrack of my early teens is basically this song.

Re: Commander Keen Mobile Reboot

I agree. There would be no need to overdo flashy technology but perhaps improved computing power under the hood could deliver a more up to date game experience. Cosmetically I would have envisaged Official TUIT as 2D, with tasteful 256 colour VGA, maybe still 2.5D (in the Galaxy sense of the word), ...

Apologies for double posting! Hi all, I plan to do a version 1.1 for this quite soon. But before I do I would be interested to hear if anyone else has had a look at playing this and if there are any suggestions to be made? I am thankful for Roobar's feedback on gameplay and am inclined to agree that...
