Keen downloads

Post by dch »

Hi, somewhere in some forum I found link to unindexed website, where were lots of downloads for every keen version.
Do someone know which website was that?

Or can you at least give me link to some collection?

Yeah, I tracked that down a while back. It contains every official version of the various Keen games that can be legally distributed, plus all of the various version patches, demos, etc. Note: this doesn't contain any pirated software.

You're probably thinking of Zap|Zot|Net, but unfortunately it appears to be no more.

CKGuy also had https://bipship.com/, but he appears to also have taken it down recently. Honestly, if I was looking for downloads of the original Keen games, I'm not even sure where I'd look anymore.

well, technically both sides aren't actually down. the index file is missing but if you know what you are searching for, you will find what you need.

some examples por favor:

but again: let's say you're looking for Keen 4 version 1.4. all you need to know is where to look (in this case http://zapzot.net/collective/*) and what to look for (filename: keen4-1.4-ega.zip). without further ado we can combine both infos and receive:

http://zapzot.net/collective/keen4-1.4-ega.zip

and that's the maths.

The first rule of bipship is you do not talk about bipship. Especially here.

It really is worth stressing that the websites discussed on this thread have nothing to do with the PCKF, and that the PCKF members suggesting ways of accessing files from those websites have nothing to do with the ownership or moderation of this forum. Also, the host and moderators of the PCKF do not condone the sharing of any Keen titles without appropriate license, and recommend users do not share any questionable links. (Obviously it's all cool to throw the shareware and open source titles around, though.)

Oh FFS! Although what you're saying is technically true, you should stop writing such ridiculous things anymore! The reason is that NOBODY CARES! It might have been a case 15-20 years ago, but not today because nobody cares anymore and we're too small community to be even noticed. Even if you post links to all the available keens, nobody will ever come here and say "We'll close your forum because you're posting links and it's illegal". Just STOP.

@dch:
there is a button up right of your post saying "edit". please consider editing your last post(s) in order to add the new information and don't double-post on a regular basis.


secondly there is a reason why there is no index file to be found and I think we should keep it that way. if you are about to collect all infos yourself that's fine, but I suggest to not collect meta-links like this in a public manner.
