Hey there,

Welcome to the forums! As for the forum related mistake, that's alright; Good that you've spotted it!

Well, here's a simple solution I've learnt of on a quite late stage for some reason:
Try obtaining a newer version of CKPatch, so you wouldn't even have to use UNLZEXE at all. You basically need to unpack a different version of ck6patch.exe.

Here's a place where you can look for one: http://keenmodding.org/viewforum.php?f= ... c9e9bf87a9
As far as I know, one of the "extended" versions should work without UNLZEXE, although other variations might work as well.

Note that you do need the keen6.exe file, from Keen 6 version 1.4 (EGA release).

Thank you for joining the forums! And thanks for trying out AAMBA!

*** Question to the mods: Hmm, on a second thought, I wonder if it'd be better to have these posts in the AAMBA Release thread. I have no idea, though. We'll see...
