Wow! This kinda reminds me of a NES game.

Also, here's a funny little thing about the Keen Galaxy code which I had sort of suspected, and NY00123 helped puzzle out. Heh.

That's a nifty bit of alternative code there, an easy way to make a unique level entrance.

These patches are more compact: (Why does everyone NOP?)

Code: Select all

#Keen Dreams style level loading box -Keen 4
%patch $38FF $EB $22

#Keen Dreams style level loading box -Keen 5
%patch $38FF $EB $22

#Keen Dreams style level loading box -Keen 6
%patch $38E0 $EB $22

If I have time to find the location of the Keen Dreams code, then possibly.

Bump.

Looks like someone took the Composite CGA Edition of Keen 4, and modified it to work with Tandy mode 8 (160x200):
