Re: Corrupt A Wish game

Granted. Your predisposition to constant fatigue is removed but by definition this requires reverting you to early childhood for eternity, which leaves you forever yearning for the great freedoms of choice and action that adulthood brings. I wish my local fried chicken establishment had not redone t...

Re: The Great Galaxy-Mod Bug Hunt 2020

This project you have done is huge, so thank you for your effort! However, like Syllypryde, I would not say that significant bugs have been a feature of my experience playing any of the main Galaxy releases over the years. Have you any stand out examples of commonly experienced problems in any of th...

Re: I played (almost) every Keen 1 mod

Interesting project and a lot of enthusiasm has gone into this. I just don't understand the reason for excluding the small minority of mods without Keen as a part of the story? I would consider them equally mods of Commander Keen as any other and an outlet for creativity as much as any mod featuring...

Re: Corrupt A Wish game

Granted. You get a cow laser but frankly it doesn't really live up to expectations and you quickly find other things that you wish for, thus perpetuating pckf's Corrupt A Wish game.

I wish that 3.5mm line in jacks weren't something that computer manufacturers felt we could manage without nowadays.

Re: Apogee / id Software Contract Expired -- 3DRealms no longer sells Keen

I wonder have they modded the games to have "A Microsoft Presentation of an Id software production" show up instead of "Apogee"? We could help them with that task if they've forgotten how... I'd use the classic Microsoft logo.

Re: Marooned on Mars mod

I am not familiar with drag and dropping in Dosbox but it sounds like you might be making things more complex than they need to be. What is the path location for your mod folder? Keen mods are seldom more than a megabyte or two so I would encourage you to find a location on your C: drive for it rath...

Re: keen 6 and keen dreams

Back in the day, Keen Dreams was pretty much ubiquitously shared for download along with Keen1 and Keen4. Has this changed over the years?

Re: InsaLevs 5: Keen 5 insane minimalism competition/collection

Vorticon-ize Keen5 I am sure this can be done. Biomenace, after all exists. (Though imho it isn't a particularly good game). And of course I can claim to have done something similar when I made "Torgopolis", my Keen4 one level mod. There was some complexity to tile heights and their interface with ...

Re: Is Commander Keen music weak?

I enjoy Germot66's posts. But I agree they are bewildering. Reminds me a tiny bit of the writings on the back cover of an early Bob Dylan LP from the 60s.

One of the amazing things about the likes of PCKF is that such a small community can contain such a diverse range of characters and personalities.

Re: Hi, I'm new and doing some stuff.

Welcome!! Great to see some attention for Keen1 - one fears that Keen1 modders could easily outnumber Keen1 mod players. I like your mod premise and your tales in the forbidden underworld of corrupted Keen1 levelscapes, first encountered by me when pressing "F8" in the original ver 1.0 game.

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

Compulsive save and restore play on my part in Galaxy mods has somewhat ruined my enjoyment of them. However my skills at playing them have deteriorated to the point that I have relatively little chance of getting through levels without saving frequently. But it does get a little excessive. I guess ...

Re: Microsoft is acquiring Bethesda parent company ZeniMax

Definitely worth mentioning. Microsoft have given due care and attention to some of their own franchises. But it's doubtful that they would care enough about Keen to do anything special with it any time soon. I think they listen to fan groups where there's money to be made (e.g. Age of Empires). But...
