Found some of my old notes...
Have any of you ever played MindRover? Quite a good game, I reccomend it. Anyway, I spent a long time today looking for the CD because I wanted to play it again, but in the process, I found my old notes from when I was making a level with a mix of ted5 with wacked out graphics (not the game graphics) and a hex editor. I thought some of you would find this interesting. I obviously had a strong will to make a new keen 4 level when I did all this, it was a lot of work.

(if the pictures don't show, go to

Those numbers on the left are the hex values I was entering in witha slightly modified TED5 (which allowed me to manually enter tile numbers) Here's a picture of what it looked like when I was doing it that way

Anyway, it was fun to go back and look at this stuff. I also found one of my old hard drives which won't boot up by itself, but works fine once the computer is booted, and it had a lot of my old stuff, including a text file that listed the sprite numbers.

Wow...those numbers could be really useful, but what I really want are the hex codes for the animation frames of all the sprites in the game. And what are those tiles you have in TedEdit?

Those are the Rise of the Triad tiles in there, because that's the way ted is setup to run when you first download it.

Re: Found some of my old notes...
I wonder what those 'unknown' things are.. Maybe they're just 'nothing'.

Re: Found some of my old notes...
Well think, is there anything else that could be a sprite in Keen 4?
