Re: 4th difficulty in Keen 4-6?

Well, this 4th difficulty would be like an ultra hard mode, where Keen cannot use pogo and all the Keen 4,5,6 enemies (easy, normal, hard) that can be shot and dies permanently (for example Blooglet, Bounder, Sparky, etc.) will resurrect (like the nightmare difficult in Doom). That sounds akin to C...

Re: Neural Stunners

Thank you for the information, Fleexy. I also see that the level names match those seen in Commander Genius. Perhaps those are the variable assignments for the levels within the game’s code. The part that players see is the output for those variables. For example: Dim Level As String; If Level = Pyr...

Neural Stunners

Out of curiosity, what level in Secret of the Oracle has the most neural stunners?

Re: 4th difficulty in Keen 4-6?

Commander Genius also has difficulties in addition to the standard Easy, Normal, and Hard. You night look into that game. It is also available for multiple platforms.

Re: AdLib Sounds

Levellass, have you extracted the AdLib sounds for Keen Dreams. I don’t mean to be a bother to you so much. But, I would still like those sound clips for the purpose of completing the set.

Re: AdLib Sounds

Thank you for the reply and the information, Levellass. It seems that sound 15 is the sound that I was looking for. But, the pitch (at least for the PC Speaker sound) does not seem to match that of the sound played within the game. The sound played in the game plays at a higher pitch. Sound 15 is on...

Re: AdLib Sounds

Thank you for the reply, Levellass. It is the same sound as Keen's head hitting a ceiling Ah, do you happen to remember what sound that is? I don't remember hearing it. Here is what I can come up with. sound 0: Keen walking 1 sound 1: Keen walking 2 sound 2: Keen jumping sound 3: possibly Keen's hea...

Re: AdLib Sounds

I am curious. I did not seem to hear the sound of a mimrock landing. Was that somehow missed in the extraction? Is it a duplicate or variation of a sound that is present in the set?

Re: AdLib Sounds

Thank you for the reply, Malvineous. It appears to be all sounds. That is good. Manual extraction is not preferred; but, I did it with One Must Fall: 2097's sound effects . It was tedious and I don't think that I got all of the frequencies correct. But, it seems that Keen Dreams' sound effects might...

Re: AdLib Sounds

I don't mean to bother you, Levellass. But, if I don't: you won't know that I am still interested in getting the remaining sounds. I won't know if you have managed to extract them, since you mentioned that they are tougher to extract than were the others. Is the general rule of thumb not "You won't ...

Re: AdLib Sounds

I already extracted Keen 4's adlib sounds, they're here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/l8pff0mmux6k1 ... b.zip?dl=0 It had been so long that we had communicated that I had forgotten about that. That means that, unless: Keen Dreams does not have the same number of AdLib sounds as it does PC Speaker soun...

Re: AdLib Sounds

That is excellent. Thank you, Levellass. Were Keen 4's AdLib sounds more difficult? I didn't see a link to them. I don't know if the Vorticon series has AdLib sounds. I think that Keen Dreams does, though. But, you might be working on either improving KeenWave or a replacement project. I don't know....

AdLib Sounds

Hello, Levellass, how are you? Have you ripped the AdLib sounds for the Keen games yet? I would still like to have copies of those.

Re: MIDI Streams (MDS)

I have accomplished what I was after. I broke down and used Winamp. Fortunately, changing the files' extension from MDS to RMI was sufficient. It did not work with any other players that I had found. If Levellass sees this post. I am still waiting for the AdLib sound set for the Commander Keen serie...

MIDI Streams (MDS)

I have some music files that are in MIDI stream (MDS) format. What can I use to convert them to standard MIDI sequences? I do not want to use Winamp because I do not like the introduction file that is included with its installation. I tried changing the extension to .mid. But, Windows Media Player w...
