I was hoping it's true. Ctrl+N would be sooooooo much faster and less annoying than F10+N. :celtic
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

Well, I'm sure it's possible to change the buttons via some hacking :p

A simple patch works, but there's a problem with ctrl, alt and Space as they are Keen's control buttons.

I can't see a problem with that, no.

This 'glitch' *can* be performed with the original levels in all three Keens.
That's actually my preferred method for disabling no clipping! So much faster than Ctrl+N a second time.
That and climbing a pole.

Say hello to a ~7.5 years bump!

Since most images are down, I've figured out it might be a good idea to publish a video (~3.5 sec long) describing the glitch.
As it turns you, it's the *original* form of the glitch described in my post post in this topic;
Presumably requiring a custom Keen 6 level, it's been reproduced right in BASA (level 11)!

I believe it can also be done by impossible-bulleting onto a keyholder, though that's hard to do consistently. Then of course there's using all the Pink Shots and Babobba embers. It's the trick that keeps on giving.
