Keen 2 version 1.1

Post by Litude » Sat Aug 07, 2010 22:53

Found a new version of Keen 2 whilst looking through some stuff identifying itself as version 1.1. It seems to be based on the same code base as shareware 1.3 so I guess it's safe to assume that if you ordered the game at the right time you got version 1.3 of episode 1 and version 1.1 of episode 2 and 3.

I haven't found version 1.1 of episode 3 though but I'd be very surprised if that version didn't exist.

I uploaded just the exe (the only thing that's different from both v1.0 and v1.31) here which should be okay as you can't do anything with it without the game files.

Ooh, thanks! Time to look through and see if I can spot any of the differences (or indeed if there are any noticeable ones)...

Oh, by the way, would it be too much to ask where you found this?

I already added the differences to the Keen wiki. It was the Commander Keen 2 scene release by OWI that had this version. I didn't manage to find the Keen 3 OWI scene release (but I'm not too confident it has to be 1.1 as it seems OWI just pulled some random distribution of Keen 2 of a BBS to release episode 2).

How very interesting, yet another version is discovered.

I've owned a copy of Keen 2 v1.1 since forever. I wasn't aware it was so rare.

So the question is, do you also have a copy of Keen 3 v1.1?

Which version would that be? I thought only Keen 6 had a trial, and the only shareware versions were one and four?
