Can someone put a new link out here? When I go to the page, it redirects me to a DNS Error page.

@Bubzrulz
there are multiple ModKeen versions out there. make sure to use the vision which has support for Keen Dreams graphics and data importing/exporting.

I assume you've tried to decompress the KDREAMS.EXE with UNLZEXE.EXE. unfortunally UNLZEXE isn't capable of doing so.
here is a step by step setup for you, which should work without any issues:
  1. Download the following files and tools:
  2. Extract all Keen Dreams, UNP, Modkeen, CWSDPMI files in one folder of your choice.
  3. Also create a subfolder called BMP within that Keen Dreams folder.
  4. Open DOSBox and navigate to your Keen Dreams folder
    (alternatively drag&drop UNP.EXE on the DOSBox desktop icon)
  5. To decompress the KDREAMS.EXE type (in DOSBox):
    UNP.EXE KDREAMS.EXE
  6. Now extract all graphics and files by typing (in DOSBox):
    modkeen.exe -episode=7 -export -bmpdir="BMP"

ok then... the UNP output looks fine.

but I have a strong suspicion that your MODE.BAT file is faulty. please post the command written within this batch file. I suspect you have written commands which look something like this:

Code: Select all

modkeen.exe -episode=7 -export -bmpdir=c:\keen
instead please use the commands from step 6:

Code: Select all

modkeen.exe -episode=7 -export -bmpdir="BMP"
this should solve your problems.

I've just checked your setup:
you forgot to create an empty folder called BMP. that is very important! please check step 3 again and do as told. everything else looks fine.
