    Kenny Roels in SDL

    Post by Andy on Mon Dec 30, 2013 3:51 pm

    Per Thomas Weiling's request I have converted Kenny Roels' mods to SDL. He released three of them in 2002, the first called 'Wolfenken.'

    Compared to his later mods, Wolfenken's mapping appears a bit more 'patched together' and the pushwall design assumed two-space movement. Extraneous maps have been removed and small bug fixes have been made, thanks to Thomas' beta testing.

    I personally enjoy the unique sounds Kenny used.

    How long does it take for you to convert them?

    The music is new? I assume you mean sounds. I play tested this and had a ball doing so. Some of the sounds are awesomely bad, but some of the new graphics (such as the Heretic one you mentioned) add to the uniqueness of the mod.

    I suppose my favorite is the SS alert sound.

    It depends. This particular one was easy because all Kenny did was hex-edit some text in an existing DOS EXE, which I could discern by checking it in a hex-editor.

    Much of the time put into easy ones like this are for adding new details like getting the level ratios right and fixing some existing (usually mapping) bugs. Playtesting them can become quite a chore, but it's necessary. Thanks to Thomas and WolfForever, I get some relief from that occasionally.

    Is it saying that it's not commonly downloaded and could be dangerous? If so, click the arrow next to Discard and click Keep.

    I messaged Andy asking if it's his final version and he messaged me back that it is and have his permission to upload. So I'm not going to worry too much anymore about whether it downloads in Chrome.
