Version 2.1 Preview

Post by gerstrong » Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:36

Because the multiplayer interest has been high lately I decided to put a preview Version CG 2.1 for those who want to experiment with it.

Special thanks to Zilem and DrColossus so far for some nice contributions!

I have updated Keen4Plus fixing some DB bugs and added Kylie and Lindsey for maximum enjoyment! If you already have installed an older version, you have to remove that one first. The download manager won't update it. You can do this by deleting the game and zip package under "downloads". Or you can download it manually here:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonek ... p/download

I also have uploaded MoMGalaxy pythonized:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/clonek ... p/download

This also will be enhanced further over time until it runs as expected.

I have not set a link to CG preview 2.1 since this is more for you guys. I will be dropping the builds here:

Just noted on my Windows system, MoMGalaxy does weird things. I need to investigate why. Under Linux I have no problems at all.

Not sure sure if all systems are affected.

Still though Keen4Plus with two new sprites work using this preview version :-) Enjoy!

Yes, an option you can enable in the settings.

I was rather surprised to see it was set to on XD
i saw it was there it in the options a while ago.

Btw: on android, will it be possible to have access to the Controller key settings file so you can copy them between android devices
(Nvidia Shield "Portable" and Nvidia Shield "Tablet") as them as a reminder to the action keys instead of onscreen click
and to have access the the picture files for the screen keys?
so you can re-color them from the Xbox/Steam Controller action-key colors to the Nvidia shield once

- Keen's skin doesn't load, i believe that is what you mentioned above
- Lindsey's skin doesn't load, i believe that is what you mentioned above
- Fishes seems to be trying get to player 1, in the video

Oh I must have overseen that with the music. Give me some days to fix that and the others. I really need to test more on Windows...

Give me some days to get back from vacation and first thing will be getting these bugs fixed...

I'm back!

Alright I have uploaded version 2.0.2 containing the fix with the music, some bug fixes and updated DLL. It should load a bit better. Preview crashes because of python 3.5 on Windows. So give me some time to look deeper into this...

I was not able to reproduce the problem with your config files. It is still there, please let me know and give me some more details in how these two configs were setup. You might have something I have not yet discovered.

I also have uploaded Keen4Plus with the sprites complete. At least Kylie should work with 2.0.2. Give me some time, 2.1.x will be available shortly...

Council and Kylie in Commander Keen 7.

With the Player selection you can use a different character. Even Billy has some small detail surprises with those Bitmaps:

He we go for another update (2.0.5 and 2.1.5). This time SDL_mixer is included which should improve the sound and music player a lot. I also put a link of the preview version on the website. Both use the new SDL_mixer implementation:
