Everything needs to be in the same folder, as your edit details. You need to make a text file, put the instructions into it, and save as a batch file (or rename it to be .bat). Once you have a batch file, the contents should look like: dro2midi korath.imf korath.mid Where the program dro2midi turns ...

The point is, who CARES what ID/Venimax/apogee/whoever thinks of the copyright? I like that ID made an awesome game series, Keen. I do not illegally download the games, I have bought them several times over the years. But if all the rights holders use their legacy 20-odd years later for is stopping ...

LL, thanks for your reply. Firstly, is 'legally wrong' automatically 'morally wrong'? No. The second issue is the definition of 'harm'; putting aside legal=moral, what IS harm? It's very hard to define this, but I would say financially or emotionally, broadly speaking. However harm had been done; th...

Holy Pogosticks, Hall-man! it's really you. Thanks for making this Kickstarter and working so hard on this idea, it's a neat one ("this is neat" indeed!). I'm in the Sierra On-Line community, and we've got several Kickstarters funded now, 4 or 5 I think. This one should be no problem, just gotta mak...

I don't think Lass has ever been opposed to the notion of modding. Each of her posts is a rich baklava of commentary. Layers and layers of flaky, delicious facetiousness and irony must be cut through to decipher her true opinions. On the original topic, renaming keen1.exe is a bad idea and you shou...

Next door has an annoying cat. It's part stray and keeps coming over my yard. I could poison it with cyanide, (as potassium ferrocyanide.) which isn't illegal and be rid of a problem. As long as I don't draw attention to it, nobody will care. This makes the morality of this action moot! My God... I...

Remind me to get you on MSN and give you Internet Etiquette 101.. :P

That still doesn't have a Keen collector card image, either.. Although I am interested there's multiple for multiple games. Want the Hocus one!

Keen Dreams I was just referring to an old version, not really a "beta" with missing things per se. I called it that because it did have some things removed, such as referencing the defunct sequel "Meets the Meats" and there are a couple other changes too, IIRC. Welcome, Spikey! I'm very glad you de...

I mean, it's the old argument, what's actually legal as opposed to what's fair game. If we worried about ancient copyrights, noone would ever download The Armageddon Machine/Aliens, and we'd have about 50% less community members. Noone would make fangames or recreate old music, either. Anyway. Back ...

This looks very interesting! However, can you also provide links? btw welcome to the forum. Thanks guys. i'm not sure what the forum policies were, so I didn't link to anything just yet. I was pretty specific, most things can be found via Google or via the Beta Archives forum that BrainRain linked ...

List of Apogee betas and mods (please contribute)

Hey folks, Long-time Apogee lurker, only sometime poster here. Within the community is a lot of fragmented cliques (I could say "Shattered Worlds", but that would be bad of me), and so there seems to be a large portion of people who know some things in the community and not others. I was thinking th...
