She made Keen stop using his slide rule.

Whoa, this mod is really cool!
however, as a couple of people have stated before, i'd like to see the splatters toned down a bit, as they're kinda out of place...
but yeah, great work! It plays really well, and the music is fantastic!

Agree that this is pretty stunning. Can't even imagine the work that went into patching. Just crazy. This is the core of the modding madness, having a patch file ranging thousands of lines, just to make stuff work in the original game instead of writing a new game. Bravo! The theme with tiles and backgrounds made of bones was totally jaw-breaking awesome. The art is so good. I have to admit that I played it using godmode because playing Galaxy is somehow really difficult to me nowadays and this mod had many things killing you, not always easily seen. The slingshot and flying broom, the book... Awesome ideas. :drool Loved Keen's house. Really inventive, especially the way to change sides of the house. It'll be interesting to see what 'Lass does next.

She raised the bar too high. I don't know how she'll surpass it.

Well first I plan to shoot below the bar with a Vorticons mod. (Just for you KeenRush) but after that, let's just say the patchfile is already 2/3 that of Valentine's Keen's and I haven't even made a level yet. VK was just a warmup.

Haha. :) Forgot to mention in my post that the snakes and toads (or whatever, can't remember exactly now) that sort of break the 2.5D perspective by coming towards the player (who looks at the screen) are awesome -- so creative and so well drawn.

I believe those snake traps are also from Monster Bash.

The toads aren't, but the snakes are, and yeah, we need more enemies like that methinks. On a whim I developed a bird that flies at the screen, then you see a cross section of its organs before it vanishes. But... no.

Hey there, musicians of Valentine Bash. Is there a chance for me to get a copy of this mod's soundtrack? Preferably MP3 (well, both MIDI and MP3 would be nice, but I don't want to sound too demanding).

Thanks in advance,
Grimson

The official soundtrack is here: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/394 ... dtrack.zip

Sadly the conversion is not perfect, some quality is lost and it does not play exactly as in the game. I don't know what wiivn used to convert, but it's awesome.
