Problem mounting nessie in keen3

Post by MrDoomguy »

I’m not sure whether I’m doing something very wrong, or whether I found a problem in Commander Genius. After waiting for the Nessie monster in Keen 3 I have trouble mounting it. Incan walk next to it and I tried even various keys but it always ends up leaving without Keen.
In case I’m missing something please do tell!

Thanks

I guess this is a bug in Commander Genius. Try updating CG to the most recent version, just in case. I can't help you with CG any further than this.

In the original DOS version, you just need to wait for Messie to appear. As soon as Messie touches Keen, Keen automatically sits in Messie's back. You don't need to press any key at all (except to move closer to Messie if the sprites aren't touching). To get off Messie's back, just press the appropriate direction key to move Keen to the shore.

PS: Fleexy kindly moved your thread into the Commander Genius subforum. I hope this makes it more likely that gerstrong will read this when he drops by.
Hail to the K1n9, baby!
