God, no! I'm like, eh... 3 times younger, or summtin! :P

Hmm... half an hour? Do you happen to have a 100+ GBs hard drive, full of stuff?

Cuz if you don't, and have a machine over 500 MHz, that's not pretty!

LMAO, my youngest is several years older than Larry, (that's if Larry is 17).
And IF Larry is 17, that makes me 3x older than him +1.
Djees I'm old.
*Sits in a corner and mutters a bit now......
Now yeah, has is good sides too ... the grandchildren, indeed. * mutters a bit more.... :)

About that scan, if scan "all files" and "archives" is enabled (normal for a first scan) it's not abnormal it takes a lot of time. I suppose you're PC isn't one of the fasteds, not if you run WinME on it.

Well, just to let you all know whats up. I ran the scan. Nothing came up... I went somewhere eles and found keen 4, and it works great! but the rest of them dont, something about being a patch file, i dono, but i will just have to be satisfied with what i have i guess. Thank you boys for all your help!!

Good to hear you were lucky ;)

As for the others that don't work... patch file? maybe batch? Because if it is a .bat file, chances are it's just written to work on a certain path. .exe files should work, tho'!

The keen4 file on the sites are dos files, no doubt about that.
I don't really get the 'patch' 'batch' whatever error here ......
No idea.
Weird is the fact that you not seem to be able to fully download from the sites.
You don't use download accelerators by any chance? Don't think so, not on dialup ??

oh yeah, it also came with a read me file it says :
WARNING: This patch will NOT WORK (except when updating from 1.0 version) unless you put the files in your Keen 5 directory and run the BATCH file.

UMM how do I do that?!?

PM button is below ;)

Updates on DOS games? Updates on Keen games? Err... never heard of any actually.

Now, I would say you try to get keen from a different site, again... eh, yeah, that's the only thing I can think of!

Oh, and yeah, if you'd like to download the games... er... from a legally-questionable site, lemme know ;)

Well, you click that small PM button under one of dosraider's posts, and from there it's just like sending an email, insert a title, and in the contents field, insert the message's body. In this case, the site you downloaded the games from.

*Laugs now...... sorry.

OK, that's the deal on the site you PM'd me:
You can get the playable:
Keen1, episode 1, version 1.13, marooned blabla, 153 KB
Keen Dreams, version 1.13, 358 Kb.
Keen4, version 1.4, 593 Kb
Keen6, 344Kb, demo
Those are the ones you need, and can play in WinME (Dosgames).
Those are shareware, NOT the full games. Also on our sites you will only be able to download the first episode of each, not the full games. That's illegal.

Unusuable for you:
All the other listed Keens downs are updates for the FULL GAME only, not for the downloadable one.

You can't use them if you don't have the full game.
Keen5 is only a update for the full Keen5 game, not the game itself.(Keen5 has no shareware version, as far as I know).
Those listed as Keen2-3 are updates for Keen1 episode 2-3, not the game.

Hope this helps you a bit further.

Still is very weird you can't down from our sites.

so pretty much... i can only play the full version of keen 1 and 4?

Posted: Wed Aug 22, 2007 10:53 am

Even not that.
They are shareware versions, not the full games, full Keen games MUST be bought or illegally downloaded.

blah!!!! thats just not fair... well where can i buy them?

Former Apogee is now part of Id, you can buy those games @

And yes it is fair, you get a free playable first episode and must buy the others.
Try the shareware out first, if you like it, buy the full game, but only if you like it.
Good deal.
