You have to keep in mind that very often the abilities of characters aren't ~exactly~ ripped from their games. For example, Mario's up+B (coin punch) is something you with every jump in a 2d game, really--they just powered it up for attacking. Link's arsenal, similarly, was nerfed, as he usually has...

Postmortem: Sorry for the long wait with no posts. I've been busy. :( For the most part, the things I was curious about were the following: -Does the player go Left or Right first? -Does the player go Up or Down, when given branching paths? -Does the player fall straight down a chute, or hold a dire...

You'd think that, but I had no luck. DOSBox actually comes with the codec you need--just go to the DOSBox folder, and there should be a Video folder, and a link to "Install Video Codec." (This is all in WinXP)

I'll work on doing just that, next time I'm at home long enough to do so. Another charitable Keener could do it, too. I'm sure grafix would appreciate the conservation of bandwidth, either way. :)

Hehe--yeah, some of us arrived too late to contribute! :( Keen comes from an era of gaming where the storyline's text had to be carefully planned such that it fit on a few screens-worth of presentation, yet carried enough mystery and excitement to carry the player through several levels of gameplay....

Good point, Malvineous. :\ I forget that some Keeners are still on 56k.

These playbacks are really interesting. I plan to post my interpretations with in a week, as well as take down the videos and stuff.

Thanks again to grafix for hosting all this!

Is this the "I can has cheezburger" of Keen fangames? :\

My favorite part was the name of the planet (and sector) that Keen travelled to. :)

I've never used the "Mark All" on the main page, but I frequently find myself using the "Mark All Topics Read" whenever a new user blazes through all of our miscellaneous polls. :)

In your DOSBox configuration file, there's a section for your video settings, right at the top, something like this:

Code: Select all

fullscreen=true
fulldouble=false
fullresolution=320x240
windowresolution=320x240
output=surface

A Keen Day Experiment

Edit: I was over-eager, and posted this in the wrong forum. Could an admin move it to "Other Keen Stuff" please? Hey all, It's been a while since I contributed anything. One of the things I've always been fascinated with is level design, and the way a player's intuition / play style affects their ap...

By the way, I think my one level mod is as old as 2004. :) How embarrassing.

Wow, this definitely snuck up on me, too!

I'm working on my tilesets, and finally making progress, but one week is not going to happen. :) But a week and a year--? Who knows!

Keeners shouldn't squabble amongst themselves. Everybody take two steps back, recompose yourselves, and this will get taken care of.

Shadow Master, if you think any Blooglets were left alive onscreen long enough for the Flect to show up, reflect my Neural Stunner shot, and peg one of 'em... you're wrong. I kill/killed Blooglets on sight. Hated the little things, because they used to push me off of high places. :) Keen4's enemies ...

Hmm! I'd never really considered this before. Keen 1: I really like the Robots , because of the way they move. The rotation of their treads, the herky-jerky of their upper bodies... they look like clumsy machinations, and they fill their role well. I do not care for the Yorps , mostly because of the...
