OaKeen- the modlet that will be ignored.

Here is where to post about the latest Commander Keen fangame or modification you've finished, a new website you've made, or another Keen-related creation.

Abiathar gives compressed gribberish like this:

On the Graphics Files tab, uncheck This game uses compressed graphics. It looks like Levellass removed the EGA decompression step from the game, probably to make room for patches?

so now that problem one is solved, there is only another solution needed to tell KennGraph how to handle files with removed compression...

Abiathar can output a 'nul.dict' file; simply rename this EGADICT.CK4 and run Keengraph.

I'm starving for an update!
please share/upload your three finished levels I have dreamed of last night.


anyways, here is a menu background contribution for this mod. (I'm too stupid to import it myself. oddly enough some graphics are out of place, and are only gribberish. so I'm waiting patiently for the next update) :

You think that's bad? I encrypted my last release's graphics and levels. None can extract them, NONE.


This is actually mostly done, around 70 or so levels. But my unemployment has pretty much frozen all my projects.

na, forget about the remaining 67 levels. just give me the three lethal kubed designed levels of my dreams, will ya?!

well, the accessible download version just uses the standard K4 menu screen, doesn't it? compared to the mods freshness this looks rather plain. take mine, take mine, take mine! space, the final frontier, ending the deadly dullness...

BTW... I did extract the games graphics... wasn't too hard really... but re-import them gave rather strange results.


ps.: life has the tendency to interrupt from keening.

Nisaba... are you ok? I didn't understand any of that at all. What time of night did you post that?
