just came across an interesting Commander Keen VR attempt:

This is neat. Probably would have justified its own topic, Nisaba! Do we know anything about the person who made this?

Re: Pics of Keen on old systems

*bump* Not a picture per se but here's LGR playing a bit of Keen1 on an old IBM. Love the real PC speaker sounds, it's something I truly miss. The hardware (keyboard expansion doohickey) that he's demonstrating is also cool. (Though I was more than happy with the old style keyboards before the separ...

Re: Themed Items

Or you can go for more international offerings, besides the high sugar high gratification American items of the original series... I've for instance featured Dutch cuisine and also eastern European cuisine in two of my mods.

Re: Keen Awards 2020: Winners

Congratulations to all. I congratulated the Scifidelity Orchestra on youtube too, I hope they see it. I may not have got an award but at least I "commissioned" an award winning entry. Also, interestingly, it appears they got a comment of praise from the actual Bobby Prince on their winning Brer Tar ...

Re: Commander Keen Pack

Hello FribbulusXaxMan! I think we have probably all taken note of the message you have come to convey to us on this forum by now! A single topic or posting - if your site is indeed as legitimate as you say - would probably have sufficed.

Re: Keen 3 in Galaxy style

Those backgrounds are beautiful. Really great art. I think amongst the original games, Keen3 graphics are by far the most compatible with cyan-magenta scheme so definitely a good choice on your part.

Can't wait to see how you implement a Mangling Machine in the Galaxy engine... could be utterly epic.

Re: What bands or musicians do you listen to?

@Spikenexus re: Depeche Mode you are in for a treat if you delve in. They're a very prolific band who have sustained a very high standard for decades. I think there is no one correct starting point because different listeners will like different stuff. My starting point was the Violator album (1990)...

Re: What bands or musicians do you listen to?

I know pretty much nothing about EBM but I've liked a few songs by Nitzer Ebb (a band who were friends with Depeche Mode, one of my favourites) and of course I love the first NIN album which I believe to have elements of EBM in its style. Perhaps if Spleen has any good examples to guide us into furt...

Re: Users with broken avatars

I noted this problem before and Grandy02 explained to me that it's apparently due to whether https is used on the hosting site. Some browsers such as Chrome by default will hide embedded images from non https sites (which include shikadi.net). Other browsers like Firefox and Edge seem more happy to ...

Re: Aarrgggh the Garg in: New Yorp City

I decided to do a voiceovered youtube video of the mod, more to practice my Youtube skills than anything else. Go ahead and check it out, you can hear a little commentary about the making of the mod.

Re: Aarrgggh the Garg in: New Yorp City

@Roobar Thanks for writing about my mod and honestly it's (for me anyway) preferable to get a resonse than to feel like ones project is being ignored. I don't know what to say to you apart from that. To me, the level design of this mod hinges on a difficult scenario which must be overcome but the tr...

Re: OFF TOPIC THREAD: Where derailing the thread is impossible!

Good article for sure. I always feel a little sorry that higher performance EGA gaming (early 90s era) did not have a few more years of a heyday before being superseded. I guess we're lucky we got the few games we did from Id and Apogee before VGA swept the EGA platform aside and allowed relatively ...
