It won't be hard now to write the import and export code for Keen Dreams when I put my hands on the file format ;) There can't be much difference in the actual editing. A week from now I'll have two weeks of complete laziness away from the university, but I may have time later too.

BTW I haven't done anything like that so please tell me how to thank Adurdin and MultiMania for your help so anyone using the editor can see!

Um, Actually I don't know the file format yet.

I wrote a program that lets TED make new levels using the Keen Dreams Gfx, but it stores them in the keen 4-6 format.

Was the source code for getting the GFX into TED5 ever available as well as what is known about mapdict?

Not that I'm aware; but there's much that goes on I don't know about.

thought that was the case which is a pity becuase nothing seems to be happening on this and what is known would save time for others who would like to try

I believe that Keen Dreams uses Huffman compression for the maps -- the same kind of compression used for the graphics and sounds in Dreams and 4-6, and hence the presence of mapdict along with egadict and auddict.

Keens 4-6 otoh use "Carmack compression" for the maps.

Editing Keen Dreams in TED5 would require another program to take the TED5 output (uncompressed maps) and compress that with Huffman coding.
