Another Mod
I am making a mod(which seems to be a pretty popular thing to do now) Find information on it at the projects page of my site. I can't figure out how to edit the in game text(Statue messages, cinematics). Is there a file I can edit, or is it in the EXE? If it is encoded in any way, is there a program to decode and edit it?

Re: Another Mod
Sounds interesting; but with all due respect, you should not be providing information about a Commander Keen mod on your site: after all, you say "no heroes allowed" ;)

Re: Another Mod
Wow! :) So many mods this month!
Sounds interesting, and also that one pic on your site looked very nice.
And about that editing, there are plenty of topics about that in this board, try to search, though it isn't very good.
Oh, and you can try this xtra's tutorial, it's pretty good one:

Re: Another Mod
I considered making a mod starring Mortimer, but I didn't feel like editing the sprite that much. It does have some pretty fierce villains in it though.
I will study some of the mod related posts to figure this business out.

Re: Another Mod
Most of what I need to know seems to be on Xtraverse's site but I can't seem to get to it. I'll keep trying though. Anyway, my site has been updated with 3 new screenshots. In case you're wondering what the fine print on the sign says, It's cybernetics. You'd have to have read "The Resteraunt at the End of the Universe" to get it.

From the story:
Quote:

"Who but a completely brain-dead Ravenous Bugblatter Beast would dare wander into this desolate wasteland?" thought Mortimer as he planned the base's construction. Unfortunatly he over-estimated keen's intelligence.



That's a nice touch :)

Re: Another Mod
You mean Traal? No, it's on Fribbulus Xax. I just mentioned the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal because it's the dumbest crerature in the galaxy. If sombody mentions a brain-dead monkey, it doesn't mean you're in a jungle.

Actually, there's an interesting direct relationship between incidences of jungle inhabitance and the aforementioned monkey mentioning.

Re: Another Mod
:x I was only trying to say that one shouldn't jump to conclusions.

I have just created the first level. See the screenshots on my site.

I have been trying to reach Xtravaganza for days now, and it still won't work. I won't be able to finish my mod if I can't get the information and tools I need from there! So, Xtra if you read this, you may want to make sure your site is running properly. I have been there before, so unless you have added something really fancy, I don't think it's my computer. If it is my computer, or if it is a really bad problem with the site, please, you or someone else who has the data and programs, provide an alternate way to get the things I need.

Needed: information and/or programs for editing Statue messages and ending.

Also, does anyone know where I can get a good hex editor?:confused

Re: Another Mod
Also, there is very good hex editor on xtra's page. :D
But you can get some Keen editing tools here:
www.commanderkeen.net/kee...ograms.php

Hmmm, those screens look awesome! But could I give some suggestions?
1. In that first new pic, where that shadow comes to ceiling, I think those round corners doesn't fit very well.
2. Like in the last new pic, below that small sga sign, there is that left down corner, that doesn't look good to me, because it doesn't look it's "connected" to the other texturing. Maybe you could do some corner graphics for those, like where that shadow gray would be going through the tile from left to right too? I hope you understand what I mean. :crazy

Re: Another Mod
I have done alot of work on the project recently, and will upload all new screenshots soon.
Recent Changes:
.The menu is now in monochrome red instead of green, so that it is different from Keen's Computer Wrist.
.The corners now have a black border which fits in better with either background.
.The Helptxt file has had a slight update.
.The first shrine is now complete.

KeenRush, I don't quite understand what you mean, but I am trying to make the tiles work better with the lighting effects.

Re: Another Mod
I have just downloaded a hex editor, but I can't find the post with the information on editing the labels on the status screen. The search engine isn't worth a :poison , and I haven't had any luck finding it manually. If Adurdin could please send me or post the information to change "Keen" to "Mort"? Or can somebody find the topic and post a link here?

Re: Another Mod
Hmmm, have you noticed to unlzexe your exe first?
Do it with:
www.commanderkeen.net/kee...nlzexe.zip
And try then that hex editor again. :)

Oh, and I really can't expain with any better way than that. But those are great with that way, I was just suggesting they could be a bit better with that way. Never mind..

Oh, and new screens, can't wait to see them!

That should be what you're looking for, Villain.

I'm actually remaking it completely at the moment, but the current version is still pretty handy.

Re: Another Mod
With the new Keen Modding forum, and Xtraverse's site back up, I won't be posting any more modding questions or problems here. I seem to have everything I need and hope to complete this project soon. I will keep you posted on the progress of my mod.

Edit: Thanks to Unlzexe and XVI32 (a hex editor), I can now change any in-game text I wish! :mortlol :mortlol :mortlol The menu, status screens, version # and date, the file extension(it's been changed to .mm1 :mort ) and a few minor texts have been customized! Did I mention the lack of unsightly CKpatch files?

If a fangame lacked all those flaws, would you still be against it?

I intend to avoid all the problems you mentioned when it comes to creating a fan game after the completion of my mod (possibly sooner).

Hopefully we can help dislodge your phobia with upcoming productions, KeenRush.

"Hopefully we can help dislodge your phobia with upcoming productions, KeenRush."
Heh, let's hope so..

Hmmm, and I just don't like them no matter how good they are.. But believe or not I've sometimes myself planned doing a Keen fangame.. :eek Though, my plan was to make it quite different than others around.

Maybe I don't hate all so much, but every time someone thinks "shall I make a mod or a fan game" I quickly say MOD! ;)

And maybe I should have a little bit more respect towards them, they are one big reason there is still Keen community, or Keen is so well known..

And who knows, maybe someone in the future can make a fan game I like too..

Re: Another Fangame?
Mort1_4win2.png
Here is another screenshot. I am currently using a slightly modified version of my Megaman engine. I will probably change a lot of it soon to support platforms, ledge-grabbing and Mort's version of a pogo. I may consider slopes, but I never quite figured them out.

10/29/03
I've added platforms, Moon Shoes, Items, Deadly objects, and a 'GPS' to the game. See for yourself:

Re: Another Fangame?
:drool It really does look good!
I really like the graphics, background is soft and the objects are clear. The 'GPS' is pretty cool idea, so are the Moon Shoes.
Oh, and seems that the mod is now stopped. Too bad..
Also, could I put it (mod beta) on my site when it's ready (the site)?

Keen mods, please!

I have hit a bit of a snag with the platforms but, I have an idea to make them work properly. Now if I could just get the solution to work.

Re: Another Fangame?
You may want to include this version as well. It's my last build before discontinuation.


Memsys, if you're really helping Keen, Spybot or Mort would have informed me of it by now.

Villain technology is superior!

P.S.
So is villain spelling and grammar!

Re: Another Fangame?
I guess it is about time I developed a universal translator. But until then, could you please try to speak English? :crazy


I have fixed most of the issues with platforms now and am working on the map and menus. I should have enough for a demo soon. :mort

11/21/03 - That demo could be a long time coming though. I have been thoroughly engrossed in other projects lately. In a related story, due to an utter lack of new content, my site has had a very insignificant update.
