that you get from the manual which I don't have. Without the name, you can't play the game. Anyone know what this is? Thanks.

If it's like most games I play (like Stunts), I only have to do it the very first time I play.

Stunts is weird. Maybe it's the Under version I have, and it's cracked, but I can input anything every time I play and it doesn't matter.

If it was warez, it would be cracked, which makes the copy-protection disappear.

This is really a legally "grey area" ... unfortuntately it would be nearly impossible for him to prove that he owns the game, but even so there have been sites shut down recently by the $&$@% IDSA (oh, my bad, the now totally different (sarcasm) "ESA") for posting scans of manuals on the web.

However, as often is the case there is a third option. There is a site I know of that has a "Keencyclopedia" which includes just about everything from the game, including all of the creatures with pictures ...

http://www.commanderkeen.net/keencyclopedia/

or check this page for Keen 6 related topics only:

http://www.commanderkeen.net/keencyclopedia/episode6.html

It probably will suffice, it just may take a bit of searching to find what you're looking for. Happy
