Re: Operation Ocflore

I really love this mod, so immersive and well realised. All aspects of this are top quality as good as any of the best previous Galaxy mods. The levels are really really fun and in particular I find amusing how the lines between traditional Keen-style bonus point areas and vital strategic areas are ...

Re: Commander Keen subreddit

Nice to see Tom chatting to people on the subreddit 2 days ago... and expressing his lack of enthusiasm for the new Zenimax game.

Re: Keen Awards 2019

There were no Keen Awards 2005 because "2005 sucked" Hey, you know... I smell a nomination for Keenest Person of 2005 coming up... :-) Still haven't recovered from the disappointment of cancelled Keen Awards 2005 :barf I wonder if output of Keen content would uptick in response to a re-instated Kee...

Re: How's the community been?

I never feel like I'm the right person to respond to members like yourself who go back so far in the community, being still only slightly more than a n00b myself... but it looks like nobody else has so it would be quite rude not to at this point. As you can probably tell yourself from clicking aroun...

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 ...

Re: Commander Keen Remastered (New Game)

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)

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.
