Re: InsaLev3 - Keen3 insane minimalism level collection (deadline Nov 1st)

200x150 is just too damn large. :dopekeen If I remember right, the maximum vorticons level size is about 16383 (x3FFF) tiles. Your level is 200*150=30000 tiles.

Re: InsaLev3 - Keen3 insane minimalism level collection (deadline Nov 1st)

Yes, no ammo implied because no sprites are allowed -- no purpose for shooting.

Also, good luck with your levels guys.

InsaLev3 - Keen3 insane minimalism level collection (deadline Nov 16th)

So, it's time for Keen 3 insane minimalism level collection (deadline extended to Nov 16th). Not a competition this time, although I guess we could poll people's favourite level just for fun. The main idea this time is to take advantage of the temporary invincibility provided by ankh (http://www.shi...

Re: Total points in Keen4 entirely

A great challenge here: get all the points, on hard, without dying (or saving) once. I couldn't do it.

Re: The Ice Factory is about 20 years old!

I hadn't even played Keen 2 or 3 back then and there were already mods? Forgot to reply to this: Nope, mods came a couple of years later once the ability to change graphics arrived. Somehow I've never played The Ice Factory before this thread. Now that I have, I agree it is a very creative level; e...

Re: The Ice Factory is about 20 years old!

^ :lol So true. It's there when I need to throw something together quickly. It's nice to take a break and step back from the complexity of Galaxy and power through a neat little vort mod (which get can very complex, too!). By any common logic people should be doing what is esteemed as less complex, ...

Re: The Ice Factory is about 20 years old!

Yep, it's a milestone. While I wasn't around the time it was released, I've played it later on and it's one of my favourite fan-made levels. It's a great level and the clever way it used ice shooters stunned me. Sigh... Missing Xky's levels... And good Keen 1-3 mods/level packs overall. Has everyone...

Re: Any Vorticons/Dreams music mods out there?

@KeenRush sorry, my bad. I wasn't aware that the initial release also had music in it. As I understood it only the deluxe version features music by Paramultart. No problem. Hm, I didn't say anything about the music. :confused The original does not have music! Any music is an addition -- so perhaps ...

Re: Any Vorticons/Dreams music mods out there?

^ Just want to point out (pride, I guess) that Tulip and Paramultart didn't have anything to do with the original Yorphius II. They shouldn't be listed as authors in your post. (They did the Deluxe version which has nothing to do with me - other than that it's based on my original mod.)

Re: Levellass, Are you OK?

I feel she might be burned-out and/or depressed. Certainly hoping that's not the case! But judging by her posts, she's had so much misfortune that I wouldn't be surprised if it were something like that. And she has a family, which can take a lot of time.

Re: Commander Keen Confronts the Commandeered Planet

Didn't find the secret level but I'll keep my eye on it during the next time I play.

Also one thing I forgot to mention: loved the idea of the collectiables being dangerous waste and by collecting them one is cleaning up the planet / making it environmentally safer.

Re: Commander Keen Confronts the Commandeered Planet

Wow. Just played the whole thing straight through! Amazing work, especially for a first mod. I'm impressed by how distinct each level is (great level design, by the way), and that achieved with a relatively small tileset. The decision to use CGA-like graphics was an interesting one and paid off. Int...

Re: Beta testers wanted for K1 mod

It's a lot of work doing a Keen mod - I really admire those who have done several. But it's also a lot of fun, so I'll keep at it. Yeah, people who haven't done one have no idea! There's just so much to do, especially if you want to get every single detail right, like I do. Anyway, good luck with t...
