Re: Terror from Outer Space

I seem to have gotten into a non-stop crash situation in the level Trogg Pod. I have looked into the patch file and found a problem that causes some data corruption every time an egg(-replacement) is opened (either by touching Keen or by getting hit by Keen's shots). It's easy enough to fix, but wh...

Re: Help me get mods to work

Okay, this is how I would do it: download and install DOSBox (your steam version should have come with DOSBox, so you could skip this step) hold down the windows key and press E to open the explorer if you don't know where to find dosbox.exe on your harddisk, open your harddisk (or "this PC") in the...

Re: Duke Nukem Episode 1 TASing and Decompiling

Welcome to the forum! I don't consider myself a speedrunner and I have zero experience with tool-assisted speedruns, but I do know quite a lot about Duke Nukem 1 and its code. I can't (and I don't want to) explain everything, that would take way too long. If you have questions, feel free to ask. Her...

Re: Which versions of Keen 4 & 5 are currently being sold as digital downloads?

Thank you for the detailed reply. I'm still a little confused about this, though. After the "Ancient DOS Games" episode on "Goodbye, Galaxy!" I contacted the creator of that show to let him know about the patch that fixes the display problems he mentioned in the video. He said he couldn't get the pa...

Re: Terror from Outer Space

Load the game and turn on noclip with N+F10, that should kill you before the game crashes DOSBox.

Re: Having issues extracting the bitmaps from Keen 4 Ultimate

I can't say what's going wrong on your end, but you could try using a different tool to extract the graphics. My level viewer should be able to load the graphics of most mods. Once the levels have been loaded into that program, you can press F4 to export all the graphics (tilesets, sprites etc.) as ...

Re: Which versions of Keen 4 & 5 are currently being sold as digital downloads?

Thank you. Unfortunately there are at least three different versions of "version 1.4" of Keen 4 and 5 floating around (id Software's version handling was complete garbage back in those days, there are also multiple different versions of Wolf 3D v1.4). I know of these three different versions of Keen...

Which versions of Keen 4 & 5 are currently being sold as digital downloads?

Has anybody here bought any Keen games on Steam or the 3D Realms store? I would like to know which versions of Keen (specifically Keen 4 & 5) are currently sold, so that I can perhaps add support for those versions to my screen update patches.

Re: Getting Keen 4-6 and Dreams mods running on real DOS PCs

was only getting 30 or 40K of XMS for some reason I think this might just have been because of a minor bug in the ID Engine's XMS code. It's possible that the game actually allocated 94k or 104k of XMS. TL/DR: The amount of "Extended" (XMS) memory shown on the startup screen is not reliable. As a r...

Re: IMF

I haven't tested this myself, but according to the ModdingWiki, a program called OPL 3 Bank Editor can edit both the Apogee Sound System Timbre Format (used by my MIDI to IMF converter) and OP2 Bank Format (used by IMFCreator).

Re: IMF

Then you should be able to export the timbre file by using the "/dumptimbre" parameter. The format of the timbre file is given in the readme.txt file. You'll probably need to write your own program to modify the timbre file, since the format is only used by the Apogee Sound System and other tools/so...

Re: IMF

Probably. It depends on what tool you use to convert from MIDI to IMF. Every MIDI to IMF converter has to have a set of instrument definitions for the OPL2 chip somewhere. The file formats of these instrument definitions may vary, and may be hard to edit.

Re: The Armageddon Continues - Version 1.0 released

Ah, another fine release that obviously wasn't tested before the final release :p The name of the tile info file doesn't fit the "8.3" file name rules under DOS. You have to rename "Armageddon.tli" to something shorter and update the patch file accordingly, otherwise you won't be able to play this m...

Re: Planet Cloudius IX

Is there something I'm missing? No, it looks like the hitboxes of those hazards are just too wide. Download this hotfix and extract the files into the game folder. Start the game via "hotfix.cmd" instead of "PCIX.exe" to make the game load the corrected hitbox definition. But you'll have to restart...
