Re: "Forgotten Galaxy" -Rescue Of The Last - DEMO

Some contructive criticism: You should consider swapping the colors of the active and inactive digits of the score box. Dark blue digits on black background simply do not work. You have changed some core mechanics of the game and you should at least explain them somewhere. At first, I thought the di...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

I think that any mods running in DOSBox are the most inclusive in the sense that anybody should be able to play them on their preferred system. DOSBox runs on almost any architecture and operating system. You simply don't get such a wide target audience with native code unless you're willing to inve...

Re: Return to the Shadowlands

Are there any particular limitations i.e. number of tracks in the song, instruments, length? If a midi file was provided would that be something you could easily enough convert to the format used in Galaxy? There are MIDI to IMF converters out there. There's not really a limit to the number of trac...

Re: Commander Keen Collection (floppy disks, mail orders etc)

[...] This was not necessarily about hidden files, but deleted ones. When you delete a file in DOS, it actually just erases the first character of the file name, making the file entry and the associated disk space appear empty and allowing DOS to reuse any of it as needed. But until that space is r...

Re: Keen 14: Secret of the Sorcerer Demo 2

I get out of memory error and it quits. Can't run the mod. The files I downloaded seem to be working fine. Did you use the wrong version of the Keen 6 executable? The mod needs version 1.4, but some versions of CK6PATCH also support versions 1.0 and 1.5, which means CK6PATCH won't show an error mes...

Re: uGrab - a GUI-based EGAGRAPH editor (not just) for Keen source mods

For Catacomb 3-D, there is really no point in using uGrab, especially if you just want to edit the exising graphics and not add or remove things. WDC should be able to do anything you want. If you want to do some serious Catacomb 3-D modding, you'll need to get the source code from GitHub and a copy...

Re: Commander Keen Is Now on GOG!

Yet another incomplete "Complete Pack", unforunately. Only Keen 1-5 are included, Keen 6 ist sill missing. As is Keen Dreams, but you can still get the shareware releases of Keen Dreams (it's the full game) for free.

Re: Commander Keen Catalog

I think some of the real early TXT2COM catalog files from Apogee were using colored text, but I guess it's better if I just tell you about the syntax: TXT2COM expects a plain text file. The tilde character (~) is used as a color change marker and must be followed by two hexadecimal digits. The first...

Re: Commander Keen Catalog

I could do the TXT2COM conversion, but only for TXT2COM (early 90's catalog and help files). The later versions of the catalog and help files were created with Simply Docs and I don't have any tools for that. But you might be able to use a shareware copy of Simply Docs 2.1 or Simply Docs 3.0 . Also,...
