Re: Levellass' Softdisk Library page helped hack fax machines

Those guys again, similar talk, different location (CCC). This time around someone in the audience already knew the answer to their rhetorical question... https://media.ccc.de/v/35c3-9462-what_the_fax#t=1260

Re: Levellass' Softdisk Library page helped hack fax machines

that's indeed interesting. can you share any further details?! did HP offer you a job?
and most importantly: will the new encryption code be in SGA?

Re: Catacomb 3D editing with Keengraph.. Help, please

hey there BlackLion and welcome to the forums, unfortunately I can't fix Keengraph's code, but I'd like to point you towards an alternative route. to bypass your issue you can go with modid v.0.1.2. this tool should be able to do the job. at least that's what the readme states: ModId now supports mo...

Re: CKPatch extended for other games: Released!

ah! finally I found the right place to post my request. @NY00123 I'd like to request a CKPatch update which is compatible with the demo versions of Keen 4 and 6. I've noticed that both games won't work with the standard CK4patch and CK6patch versions. As I'd like to tinker with both versions a bit ...

CKPatch and demo versions of Keen 4 / 6

I'd like to know if it is possible to edit the CKPATCH source code in a way that it works on the demo versions of Keen 4 and 6? As I understand it it should be straightforward to adapt CKPatch to work with both demo versions, once you know the offsets of all the items of interest in the game executa...

Keen 5 - Mod optimization (Dr. Colossus' Marooned on Mars)

I'm about to optimize Dr. Colossus' mod Marooned on Mars and hope for a fair bit of patching help/support. I really do hope that at least a couple of adjustments are realisable. here's my wish list: Yorps (Korath replacement) shall occasionally make small jumps while walking, as if they are excited ...

@Levellass can tell you more about the enemy patch concerning your second question we having two options to choose from: a) I could setup things for, simply hand me your latest version and I'll tweak some files for you. b) you want to learn how to do this yourself. choosing this path you gonna dive ...

Re: Levellass' Softdisk Library page helped hack fax machines

Great find! Who would have thought that Lemm's & Lass' reverse engineering skills will help security researchers to 'fix faxes'. BTW very interesting DEF CON talk about fax exploitation. watched the whole video and ask myself when I last used a fax machine... '96/'97, maybe? Dunno. Have you been to ...

Re: Keen 4-5: help menu thing

@Levellass: the Keen engines are full of surprises, aren't they? I also figured out that scrolling option just a couple of month ago. But I was pretty certain that I must have been the only person who missed it.

Re: alternative inputs for: savegame windows / entering highscore names

I'm pretty happy that I discovered a workaround for saving and loading savestates. Here is what I did: first I reduced the number of savegame entries to four. then I changed the standard ASCII values a bit. In my case to $77-$7A (w-z) is more useful. And finally I simply remapped the input keys to m...

I can't really remember the solution for MrBlack's levelpack but I'm sure @Fleex knows a way to deal with that. BTW displaying images here in the forums is pretty easy. Just copy the path of the image and place an [ img ] infront and an [/img] right behind the url like so: [img]https://www86.zippysh...

About the right tileinfo file for the Short Circuit Oracle:

55Aavenue renamed the original keen4.tli file into tileinfo. So you wanna search for that file instead and you should be good to go.

Hey there darkdave, Good to hear that you are still into modding. I was really worried that my feedback wasn't too helpful for someone who makes his first modding steps. I'm very curious about the current status of your mod and I'm looking forward to further updates. As said before, make sure to han...
