Hi everybody.

THE GRAND INTELLECT in
"Keen Must Die!"

Episode Three: Cybernetic Dream
The episode 2: Fathership Revenge is coming soon ;)

Aaah yes, I had hoped to transfer the topic from the PCKF, but it seems I was beat to it.

This is an... interesting mod, to say the least, and needs encouragement.

ah an interesting confection if ever there was. That level with all the vorticon youths almost gave me a myocardial infarction (which is not a good thing) and that was before i realised that the mangling machine legs had descended permanently and blocked the level. Perhaps some block tiles below the screen would stop this from happening. I suggest perhaps a 'second edition' release with one or two things irones out... to the benvolian eye it also seemed like a pity not to have a fiery modified pallette. But then again that's just the benvolian eye! keep up the good work!

In these, alas, unfortunate times for our friends at 3drealms, i wonder what the legal status of keen is. i mean id still own some of the rights dont they?? I noticed a nice 'mort3.exe' here, people fear the legal consequences of distributing keen less in these 'late noughties' days of downloading entire movies and albums and stuff.

But we digress. Fairplay for keeping up the modding tradition!

He means that its illegal to distribute the keen2 and 3 exes.

Anyway about your mod, well its certainly an attempt.
The poitns are stolen from the patchwork mod and such but I wont say to much about ripped stuff.
The entire mod just isnt very good, the cave even lacks graphics. (really, its just grey blocks).
At least your world map looks alot like the one Im making, same green colour which I found kinda fun too say.
Green rocks!

Anyway keep up your work and on your next mod try some more real custom graphics instead of just some recolourings :)

I think he means you're lollipop items which are from ShadowKeen 3. I personally don't mind graphic ripping (I do some myself if it fits well), but some people do.
The thing with distributing the exe file is, that Keen1 is shareware, so it's legal to distribute the Mort1.exe in the first Mort game.
Keen 2 and 3 still aren't freeware, so it's kind of illegal to make these accessible to a large crowd, so to be on the safe side, you shouldn't include the exe file for Keen2 and 3
But I honestly don't think there will be any consequences for you, since ID doesn't care enough.

Your Parts 2-3 are based on DrVillains mod. That one is still in beta, and abandoned, so i would love to see it finished if you like to fiddle with it.

No, what he means is you cannot use an EXE AT ALL.

You must have everything in a patch file. :)

If you don't use patches, iD might sue you. :O

Not kidding.

Apogee might still be able to sue him if he did that as well then, even though it's out of business, right? Apogee helped work on Keen as well. :\

Anyways, I think it's good. It sort of lacks change or detail at times, but it's generally good. [Though, Mort is under-aged for alcohol. ;) ]
