Help menu patches

Post by szemigi » Tue Sep 26, 2017 3:51 pm

I have the following requests for Keen 4's help menu:


1. At the loading screen (Ready - Press a key) when I press ANY key, I immediately go to the help menu. (In short: Main Menu is disabled - somehow).
2. After I'm in the help menu, and when I press ESC in the help menu (so I'm not in any menu points like COMPUTERWRIST, ORDER INFO, etc.) the game quits to DOS.

(In short again: If I'm in the ORDER INFO for example and I press ESC, I go back to the main menu as usual, but when I press ESC in the main menu, like I said, the game quits to DOS.)

Ok, not sure I get this.

This patch starts help as soon as you press a key:

Code: Select all

#Play help instead of terminator
%patch $3C26 $9A $091509A5RL
After this, you want pressing escape to end the game to DOS? That would mean all you can do is look at help. Or do you want it to go to the menu after help?

Yeah, I only wanna see the help menu, and nothing else, in short.

It means:

1. If I press ESC inside any menu points (ComputerWrist, The Story, Order Info, etc.), I go back to the help menu (as usual)
2. BUT: If I press ESC in the help menu (and only in the help menu, it quits to DOS, as I said.


Do you get what I mean?

#Play help instead of terminator, exit to DOS after
%patch $3C26 $9A $091509A5RL $B8 $05C4W  $50 $9A $037D022FRL
             $83 $C4 $02
