I've now learnt to make levels from scratch. Currently testing the 1 I've made as most of the others appear to be virtual re-makes of most Keen 3 levels. I've again included boards with messages like in Keen 3 so expect one to say 'Free us' in one level. Will include a readme file explaining the plot of the game in the release :)

The plot (story) is actually relatively easy to patch.

Add this to your patchfile:
# Story text.
%patchfile 0x18BD0 STORYTXT.CK3

And then make a STORYTXT.CK3 where you write in your story. As an example how this should look, you can download for example "A New Dope" and see how KR has done it. You can see there that it can be done with other text like help and ending also.

If you need the patches, look over at K:M under Vorticons Patch Requests. The index of patches is stickied there.

I'll take a look at it tomorrow. Currently in the process of level creating. I will also include a secret level that should be pretty fun to whip through. Added another level where there are 3 platforms that each descend into other parts of the level. Looks almost like a similar way in Level 13 of Jill Goes Underground.

I am the Index. Keeper of all that is and will be. I see all, know all and tell nothing.
