Request patches for Keen Dreams.
8 posts • Page 1 of 1
Keen Modding Live! now supports all Vorticons and Galaxy episodes - Dreams is the only one left to live-ify. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to have a convenient tedlevel-like feature like Galaxy. Could a patch make it immediately launch the first level, skipping the title screen, menu, and map? Since the menu and therefore difficulty selector would be skipped, it would be extra great if the difficulty could be set via patch.
This patch mostly skips the titlescreen, menu and map. The last two lines control the difficulty (1 is easy) and level entered. An annoyance is that pressing 'esc' will reset the game.
Code: Select all
#Skip titlescreen go straight to game %patch $4395 $E9 $00FFW %patch $28B32 $4AB8W %patch $5D01 $C7 $06 $7128W $0001W #Difficulty %patch $3C0C $7124W $0001W #Level
Excellent, thank you! The Escape thing is no problem; I've changed the scancode checked to something else so Escape does nothing. For a maximally smooth player experience, might it be possible to skip the "ready - press a key" stage of the B800 screen as well?
These two additional patches do two things. The first doesn't wait for a key and the second doesn't show the text screen, you may want one or both.
Code: Select all
#Don't need to press a key to go to title %patch $13865 $EB #Don't show B800 screen %patch $124A6 $CB
Works great, thanks again!
I'm assuming this is for some sort of project or other?
Yes, this is for Keen Modding Live. I can send you some more info on it if you want a sneak preview of the system as implemented so far.
Aaah yes, I remember seeing this...
