Catacomb 3D editing with Keengraph.. Help, please

Post by Blacklion62 » Sat Dec 22, 2018 2:26 am

Hello all.

I would like to edit the graphics of Catacomb 3d. I can export the graphics with Keengraph: keengraph -export -bmpdir="Graphics". But when I import the graphics back, the game hangs on the "Loading... Please Wait" screen.

Any help is appreciated. I'm not a programmer, so recompiling the source is not an option for me.

Thank you all,

BlackLion

hey there BlackLion and welcome to the forums,

unfortunately I can't fix Keengraph's code, but I'd like to point you towards an alternative route. to bypass your issue you can go with modid v.0.1.2. this tool should be able to do the job. at least that's what the readme states:

Code: Select all

ModId now supports modification of Commander Keen 1-6 and Keen Dreams, 
as well as Catacomb 3-D and other games based on the same tech. 
here's the download link: http://files.shikadi.net/keenwiki/tools ... -06-10.zip
for further reading check this github page: https://github.com/owenmpierce/modId

One problem is that I believe Catacomb 3D requires yo to modify the executable to use new graphics. I'm assuming ModId does this somehow, I don't think a Keen-type patcher was made for it. This may require testing, when things stop being so busy here.
