Can anyone remind me of what the exe file is in Commander Keen 4? I need the correct exe file name to start the programme. I'm using DOSBOX and had the programme going yesterday but something has gone wrong!
Thanks, Brundle...that's the one I thought it was. I'm using DOSBOX as you suggested yesterday and followed the excellent tutorial that was given. I put the downloaded zip files into a KEEN 4E folder and opened the file in DOSBOX but the exe command (KEEN4E.EXE)is saying it's an illegal command. Yesterday, however I did what I thought was the same and I had it working great. Will keep trying.
Might it have been overwritten or damaged? 102355 bytes. Giving the folder the same as the executable could also be a problem, change it to Keen instead. Even bearing in mind it was working previously.
Not quite...Audio.CK4 EGAGRAPH.CK4.....Keen4E....Vendor...Gamemaps.CK4 Dopefish.ans.....Order.frm
These are the unzipped ones I think.
The 3 I referred to were unzipped and they were CK4SW14.shr .....Install and File_ID I just can't remember exactly how I arranged the files but I certainly got it working. Maybe my download is incorrect.
The Dosbox tutorial suggested making another folder, C:\oldgames and then put the game folder (Keen) into it. I then did... mount c c:\oldgames then C:\ then cd .....sorry I'm forgetting now! Will forget 'oldgames' and just make 'Keen' Should the files that go into that be zipped or unzipped? Sorry for keeping you late. I'll stop after this effort! Thank you for additional info regarding TAB etc.
