Re: Keen Newsletter Issue 1 is here!
Very nice! I learned many things in your newsletter. It was layed out well and somehow managed to dig up really old Keen sites which I had competely forgotten about. And I will confirm what you mentioned in your newsletter: TED does not work on Windows XP, just like every other level editor for Keen.

Oh my giddy aunt!

Re: Keen Newsletter Issue 1 is here!
Wow! That was great! I guess we can sign up for the newsletter and get it in our e-mail as well, correct?(I haven't explored the site alot) Anyway, very nice job, and layout.

And BTW, when you mentioned me in the newsletter about the Keencyclopedia, you put "Dope Fish 9", in the future just put "DF9", but of course what you put was fine.

Can't wait until the next one comes out! When will that be?

Sorry but the newsletter is the maximum extent of the free time Iíll devote to Keen. There will be no levels or level from me anytime soon.

Re: Bug in TEDSETUP
There was a bug in TEDSETUP that sometimes causes a crash when you try to run a custom level. I've fixed it now, and you can re-download from www.commanderkeen.net/files/tededit.zip

If you don't want to be bothered running TEDSETUP again, you can just edit your go4.bat/go5.bat/go6.bat files and change copy gamemaps.ck 4 custmaps.ck XX to copy gamemaps.ck 4 custmaps.ck 4 (where XX is any one or two letters; and use 4, 5, or 6 as appropriate)

Levels
To anyone on CC314, will you guys be reviewing and collecting levels for Keen4-6 now? Cause if itís not done soon, we may have a jumbled mess of levels.

Error
When I run the go5.bat it says it created the first file successfully, but then it says "Bad file name or command"; thatís not an exact quote though. Would the new version fix this?

Iíll try everything over again, with the new version.

It worked this time.

I suppose a simple level would be fun, so Iíll make one.

They spelled my name wrong, and I'm supposed to be the proofreader. Well, there's my serving of irony for the day. :mortlol

The "Too Much Spare Time" Network. Something funny every few days. Or Else.

arrrgh!
hehehe

i got Keen 6 and Keen 5 loaded into the editor just fine, and on a whim i decided to try Keen 4... no dice. i think my version's corrupted or something O_o it keeps saying that there's some bad Source Handler or something. i'm going to try re-downloading episode 4 (since its shareware) from the 314 webpage ^_^

okay, i've got a question that wasn't covered in the setups guide... how do i make the exits work? like... i can make the Exit Door itself, B1B1, but that will dump me on Korath III, instead of completing the level i'm on. other than that, Ted5's not too tough :-) if i can get the knowledge of how to "complete" a level, i'm gonna make a full Keen 5 remake... eventually. lol

Re: Exit doors in Keen 5
First off, I don't understand what you mean by "That will dump me on Korath III instead of completing the level"... When I put a door in and put $B1B1 in the info layer, it worked perfectly.

hmm...
maybe i just did it wrong? i deleted the first level (Ion Ventilation Systems) and created a muck-up of a first level, included the door, and put the $B1B1 in the info layer... went into the game, jump-cheated up to the door, walked through, it says "Keen steps out onto Korath III" and it put me at the secret level O_o

i'll just try it again today after school. thanks anyway ^_^

Help
I can make my levels, and then I run the game with gox.bat, but it crashes and says map to tall when I start a game. Did I do it wrong?

Re: Help
It's too big. Probably too tall.
