I'm probably the one you're thinking of Rorie. I used to be Nospike88 from around 2001 to 2003 and Spikenexus since then. I haven't had much of a presence around here (or the internet in general) for a few years though. I admit that when I saw a post from Nospike, combined with the display picture, ...

Just recently I made recordings of a few of the PC speaker sounds to use as ringtones for my phone, so now every time I get a message, it sounds like I've just scored an extra life from Keen 4! It's surprising how many people hear the ringtone and recognize that it's from Commander Keen. As for my f...

Would the various Keen Awards held be worthy of note in/on a timeline? Or the few 24-Hours-of-Keen competitions that were held occasionally back in 2004 - 2005? Does anyone have any records of when each of those took place? I was going through the old PCKF board recently and as far back as I could g...

There's a shot of the backyard in the end sequence of Keen 2, and I think another in that scrolling story/demo sequence bit of Keen 4 also.

Just watched the videos on youtube and I hate to sound repetitive, but I think they look awesome.

A few years ago I tried constructing some Keen related things, and a Neural Stunner 'prop' was on the list. Mine (which was never finished) consisted of a few pieces of plastic pipe cut and joined together, and some kind of disc thing at the business end of the Stunner. That's about as far as I got,...

We had some variety of 386 and it came with quite a few shareware dos games, and Windows 3.11. I remember we always had to use 'boot disks' or something (can't remember exactly what they were called) to be able to play Duke Nukem II, Jazz Jackrabbit, and pretty much any other game now that I think a...

I was very much into the first Power Rangers back in the day. I watched a few of the old episodes on Youtube a little while ago and it was intense nostalgia.

Ah. I wasn't sure what the conclusion of that big 'event' was.

I remember a few people acting like it was one of the biggest cover-ups of the century, though. :lol

All I remember of that name is some thread about how 'uppy' had more than one account on these forums and was said to using one account to support all the ideas and statements posted by the other account.

Do you mean taking the tiles and sprites from the GBC game and using them to mod one of the PC Keen games to resemble the GBC Keen? I'm not a terribly huge fan of the GBC game, but I'd still be interested to see that. Or perhaps a mod using the locations and characters from the GBC game, but with a ...

Alright, here's a confession: For the longest time, I thought Keen's weapon was the Neutral Stunner, not the Neural Stunner. :P me too! Wow, I thought it was called the Neutral Stunner right up until I read the above, and even then, I went to check the game just to make sure! I've been calling Keen...

At the moment I work as a waiter for a catering business, and a cart/trolley pusher for the local supermarket. Neither job is terribly exciting, but I do enjoy them. They pay well enough for me to afford my university textbooks, fuel for my car, and whatever other minor things I need to buy from tim...

I found the forum some time during 2001, but lurked for a few months because I had nothing useful to add to any of the threads I'd read. I think I registered (as 'Nospike88') to reply to a thread where someone (I have a feeling it was Yorpy... Or someone with a similar username) was asking about dow...
