Re: How to modify graphics in your own mod?

Could always try creating the sprites as scalable vector graphics in Inkscape and then exporting them at the required resolution for the Keen engine. oh, I haven't thought about that... interesting. is this actually the way you're "spriting" enemies and other creatures? I was always wondering how y...

Re: How to change dimensions of an enemy?

ok, the hitboxes (ingame) of the Wormouth look something like this: https://s19.postimg.org/h51ybu403/ck4patch_000.jpg depending on which sprite you have replaced, you want to make sure, to change the Y-coordinate of the second set of brackets (in your 4sprites.txt file). this value determines how f...

Re: How to change dimensions of an enemy?

like Fleexy mentioned it before, it's really a matter of trail-n-error. for a deeper understanding of how things work, please make sure too read the following section of the tutorial with care:

(off topic: @Xky , thanks that you've made the latest state of XkyKeen4 available to the community. as a matter of fact I'm about to integrate parts of it in my newest modding attempt. here is a sneak preview (ProYrop is working with me on a little redesign to make it fit into the theme): http://i66...

Re: Treasure Eater Patch

Re: How to modify graphics in your own mod?

another solution could be to tryout a more "up-to-date" graphics editor. for eg. Gimp (which is free and is open source btw) or Photoshop . when spriting, I'm using layers, manipulation tools plus some little automated/macro scripts which can be setup. but I wouldn't recommend to start your modding ...

Re: ERROR: Unable to open .\EGAHEAD.4: Secret of the Oracle for writing!

[...] When I get that error (by setting my EGAHEAD.CK4 read-only), it doesn't include "Secret of the Oracle", and that text doesn't appear in my MODKEEN.EXE at all. Please try downloading the ModKeen package I linked and see if anything changes. Possibly relevant: the KeenWiki article on ModKeen . ...

@Szemigi:
I know that you are not yelling. big letters just give this impression, even if you don't mean them that way. that's why I was asking you in the first place, only to prevent unnecessary misunderstandings.

Re: Scancodes: Key used for F10 Cheats

I was thinking: why not change the key which is used for the quit menu as well. this could give me some liberty in the button arrangement. so for the next step I'm looking for a patch (since I cannot discover anything related), which changes: the dialogue from "PRESS Y TO QUIT" into " ENTER TO QUIT"...

Re: Keen 4 - Oracle Janitor, Dort patch (updating), second skypest, unused Keen sprite, Council Page

@Szemigi kindly I'd like to ask you, to lower your "writing voice". huge bold red letters pretty much give the impression of demanding and shouting at people. I'm sure your intention was to only underline and stress a certain argument. you might even be a bit impatient. time... such a scarce and fug...

ah, I see! thanks for the explanation. even if I can't read those words, I still can feel 'em... as I tried it before I did everything quite similar but missed the doubling aspect. why on earth do I have to double the values? everything else is pretty much self-explanatory, thanks to the wiki sectio...

Scancodes: Key used for F10 Cheats

I'm currently building a handheld console with just a limited set of buttons (8x buttons plus D-Pad). which means I need to get creative with the keyboard/button mapping in order to make use of the F10 cheat codes. My idea is to manipulate a couple of F10 key related patches. to do so, I need some h...

Re: Running mods

which mod are you about to play?
if it is a Keen 4 based mod it might happen to have an already extracted executable included. in this case you just need to fire up the batch file via DOSBox (like Fleexy already mentioned before).
