Korath Sprites can push Keen off ledges

So in Keen 5 Koraths push Keen around but won't push him off a ledge. Well they kinda sorta can sometimes if you stand in the exact right spot, but they usually won't. By contrast, the Blooglets in Keen 6 are pretty good at pushing Keen off ledges. I would like it if I could make it so they will pus...

Re: DISCUSSION: Keen 6 level design.

This one is very nostalgic for me, I have vivid memories of playing this level and beating Keen 6 for the first time as a kid. I remember thinking this level was very cool. I liked the start just having a black background, made it seem ominous. Looking at it now I think it holds up alright, certainl...

Oh man, you're right...that's all it was! Apparently, I knew to do that last week but had since forgotten. How dumb of me! Thanks!

Mod Id graphics export - can't open ck4_fon_0000.bmp

Listening to Nisaba's wisdom I have started using Mod Id for my graphics modding needs, and I quite like it. Its working great for my current Keen 5 project. However, I'm trying to do a new graphics export from a clean copy of Keen 4, and I get this error: http://funkyimg.com/i/2HBhs.jpg ERROR: Can'...

Re: DISCUSSION: Keen 6 level design.

Ah, the tri-color archway! I found that very memorable as a kid too. The other thing that stands out in my memory is the three blorbs bouncing outside the level. On easy mode, I think these are the only three blorbs that appear in the game (unless I'm remembering wrong). So when I was very young and...

Re: Issue with importing graphics K5

I tried it with ModId and it works no problem. Perhaps there is a bug with keengraph and Keen 5 seeing as Fleexy had the same issue. Anyway, I guess I'll use ModId for this project - thanks for that suggestion. What I mostly liked about keengraph is how the numbered file names of the extracted files...

Issue with importing graphics K5

Well, attempting to start my Keen 5 project but ran into an issue I'm kind of stuck on. I haven't even really done any modifications yet just trying to get everything set up and working, following the exact process I did with my K4 mod. I got everything set up in Abiathar and made a few small test e...

Re: i want to begin to learn mapping for the galaxy engine and i need someone to support me!

Your examples of background animating tiles are correct. Some good examples of foreground tiles that are animating would be things like fire, the black tar, the pools of green acid. Stuff like that. If you put tons of foreground animating things in your level (like lots of tar or fire) try using the...

Re: Wrong music plays when rescuing council memeber

@levellass : This was super helpful thanks! I did have to add more music slots in abiathar's song mapping section because at first abiathar's auto music patch was condraticting the first part of your patch, but once I came to my senses lol and figured out the obvious, this worked like a charm! @trou...

Wrong music plays when rescuing council memeber

Hey there all, new to the forums and working on my first galaxy mod of Keen 4. Anyway all has been going well so far but I am having one minor issue regarding music. I replaced 2 of the orginal songs with new songs using Abiathar's built in audio exporting/importing feature, and also mapped out whic...
