START.EXE

Well, I've worked out how to bypass the annoying start.exe. use the /detour paramater for KDREAMS.EXE. Now maybe Admiral_Bob can make kdrpatch!

Yeah, I figured out how to that a while ago. I have a keend.bat file that contains ...

Code: Select all

@echo off
kdreams /detour /comp
/comp ... I'm not exactly sure what that does ... I do know that the graphics don't work without that on my computer.

That's pretty cool! :) How did you manage to notice that, Mania?

Anyways, was that the reason there is no Keen Dreams patcher?

CK Guy: /comp enables svga compatibillity.

KeenRush: I UNLZEXE'D Start.exe and searched for "KDREAMS" found the string "/detour" nearby and tried it. And yes, it was the reason (see a post in the "Other Keen Games forum by the Admiral. [/url]
