Martinez McMeyer 3.5: Cosmic Nightmares

Post by szemi »

Firstly it'll be a Keen Dreams mod.

The story is Martinez McMeyer falls asleep, when cosmic illusions appear in his dream. The illusions are evil dangerous astronauts, good UFOs (yeah opposite universe), and various cosmic creatures. There'll be a main boss, which is an astronaut.

On the other hand please help me!
I'd like to edit levels and extract/import graphics in KeenGraph problem-freely.
And tell me what files/patch files are needed for a Keen Dreams mod.

You'll need KeenGraph to extract the graphics, KeenWave to extract sounds, The Omegamatic (TOM) to edit levels, CkD456tli (notice the D) to edit tileinfos and KDRPatch to patch stuff. You can find all of it on KeenModding.
This mod looks pretty interesting, good luck.
It just might be done someday. The chance is always there.

Okay. And patch files?

Because I cannot import the graphics back for unknown reasons.

The patch file would start out with

Code: Select all

%ext kdr
and end with the usual

Code: Select all

%end
Be sure to use the episode seven switch for Dreams

Code: Select all

-episode=7
And then...I'm not sure about this one. Would it be this?

Code: Select all

%egahead EGAHEAD.dre #Load the modified graphics

Everything is chaotic now! >.<

The worldmap and the levels are chaotic now, I don't know why. The game crashes; black-white stripes on the screen. :(

Somebody help me with the levels, because I think I've made something wrong. :/

P.S. I can import/export the graphics with KeenGraph now.

Keen Dreams modding isn't even near perfection yet. I think you should concentrate on finishing Martinez 4 before this. ;)
