About removing the MODDING: PATCHES section

Dear residents of the keenmodding board, I'd like to ask for your opinion concerning the layout of this very board! We have a MODDING: VORTICONS/GALAXY section where one can request/ask for patching help. And then there is this section where one can find an easy-access index of completed patches in ...

Re: New Musics

this way around we could try to upgrade Mr. M's songs, which are all beautifully composed but unfortunately way to quiet.

would it be it helpful if I'm sending you an example tune?!

Re: New Musics

thanks, gonna check things soon. is this a personal or a public link? meaning: am I allowed to update the Wiki by creating a page for this tool?! EDIT: indeed, I'm hitting the volume ceiling at some points. since you've written that tool, would you mind looking into one .IMF file and give some sugge...

@Fleexy please update the first post of this thread! UPDATE v2.9.1: more small improvements Lone Editing mode has been finagled in a couple of ways. When it's active, unhiding hidden planes just turns them visible instead of active so that you don't wind up with multiple active planes. The paste pre...

Re: How to modify graphics in your own mod?

thanks for all these MIDI related hints.
since it seems not to be the easiest part in Keen modding, I'm still shying away from testing things out. at some point I'll have to and I'll let you know which tool might work best for me.

I have a copy of Keen 6: AUDIO.CK6 CONFIG.CK6 EGAGRAPH.CK6 GAMEMAPS.CK6 where are these files coming from? and which version are you using? Keen 6 v.1.4 (EGA)? cause I tested your setup ( a clean copy of the EGAGRAPH.CK6 + the DitD EXE. ) over here and it worked just fine. btw. modding Keen 6 won't...

Re: ERROR: Not enough memory to decompress EGAGRAPH chunk 3 (size 21444921 at E03)!

well, then you need a fresh copy of Keen 6. the graphic junks you've extracted are all mod related. unfortunately this game isn't available for purchase anymore... (see: http://www.shikadi.net/keenwiki/Keen_6:_Aliens_Ate_My_Baby_Sitter! ) what files exactly do you want to extract? only the graphics?...

Re: ERROR: Not enough memory to decompress EGAGRAPH chunk 3 (size 21444921 at E03)!

just give it another shot, but this time around, don't mix files from different projects. simply stay with the Dead in the Desert files and only add modkeen, CWSDPMI.EXE, and an empty folder called BMP. i just tested this very setup with the Dead in the Desert files and it worked fine for me. ps.: y...

Re: Which is the best level editing program?

well... it depends. are you about to mod a Vorticons (Keen 1-3) or Galaxy (Keen 4-6) game? normally I'd suggest to pick the most up to date Editor ( Mindbelt for Vorticons mods, Abiathar for Galaxy mods). but if your computer isn't up to date (for eg it's DOS based) you might want to consider using ...

@CommanderSpleen is there somewhere a tutorial for the inkscape techniques you were mentioning?! sounds like an interesting way to create pixel creatures and stuff. talking about Linux: do you have any recommendation on MIDI program to manipulate or even create tracks from scratch.

Re: New Musics

the IMF Creator is more or less for converting MIDI files into IMF files (which the Keen games requires). you could instead use this tool over here: http://www.shikadi.net/keenwiki/MIDI2IMF for composing songs there are many MIDI music programs out there. I know that some people over here use FLStud...

Re: Lieutenant Barker Sprite

for a moving sprite check the Netkeen project:
http://www.shikadi.net/keenwiki/NetKeen

other than that you can simply export it from the one of the The Universe Is Toast (MOD Trilogy) games by Ceilick.
