CKPatch and demo versions of Keen 4 / 6

Post by Nisaba » Tue Dec 11, 2018 9:11 am

I'd like to know if it is possible to edit the CKPATCH source code in a way that it works on the demo versions of Keen 4 and 6?

As I understand it it should be straightforward to adapt CKPatch to work with both demo versions, once you know the offsets of all the items of interest in the game executables. I'm quoting the wiki:
CKPatch has a modular design; the Parser, Patcher and Loader units in the source code are completely independent of Commander Keen and can easily be reused to write patching utilities for other 16-bit real mode DOS games.
unfortunately I don't know much about coding, so I hope someone can help me with this task.
