Dungeon Keeper Fan Expansion ------------------------------ KeeperFX is an extensive mod for Dungeon Keeper. It is written by fans and not supported by original developer. It requires some of original Dungeon Keeper data, but many files are also modified or remade. Installation of KeeperFX CCP: You need original Dungeon Keeper CD (or CD image) to perform complete installation. Please note that there are two types of releases: complete version and patch. You need a complete version to play the game; a patch is only an additional feature, which you can use by overwriting some files from complete version with new ones. Even with complete version, you still need original Dungeon Keeper CD to prepare the game for playing. To install KeeperFX CCP, you have to unpack the archive to your desired target location, and then run "launcher.exe". The Launcher utility will allow you to select source folder from which original DK files will be taken. To select the "keeper" folder and start copying files, press "Install" button. You must select the "keeper" folder from the CD content list. Selecting root folder of your CD, or selecting installation folder on disk, won't be enough. If you wish to change language, click "Settings" in the launcher and select it from list. Remember to save your changes. You may also edit "keeperfx.cfg" by hand, using text editor. Press the correct button inside Launcher to start the game. For information about running the game executable directly, see 'running KeeperFX' section. If something doesn't work, see the 'troubleshooting' section. Supported DK releases to install from: Here you can find a list of releases which you can use to get files required by KeeperFX: - Dungeon Keeper, english release - Dungeon Keeper, multilingual release - Dungeon Keeper Gold, english release - Dungeon Keeper Gold, multilingual release - Dungeon Keeper from GOG.com (the CD image "game.gog") Remember that KeeperFX needs the original CD, or mounted CD image. The files installed on disk by original DK setup are not enough. Also, you must select the "keeper" folder from the CD content list. Selecting root folder of your CD, or selecting installation folder on disk, won't be enough. Available languages: The following languages are currently functional: ENG ITA FRE SPA DUT GER POL SWE The following languages are partially functional: RUS CHI CHT JAP Note that some campaigns may not support your language. In this case, default language will be used inside this campaign. Available screen resolutions: To change available screen modes, edit "keeperfx.cfg". Screen mode can be in a form WIDTHxHEIGHTxBPP which defines fullscreen mode, or WIDTHxHEIGHTwBPP, which defines windowed mode. When defining windowed mode, the BPP should be equal to the colour depth on your desktop. It is not recommended to mix fullscreen and windowed modes in one config file. There are two lines which define resolutions: 'FRONTEND_RES=' should have exactly 3 parameters and is used in the menu, while 'INGAME_RES=' can have 1-5 parameters, which define list of resolutions to switch between in the actual game. Most stable modes are 640x400 and 640x480. Higher resolutions may be sometimes unstable, especially in possession. Running KeeperFX: To start the game, run "keeperfx.exe". If you want to report any errors you encounter, you may run "keeperfx_hvlog.exe" instead. This will run a "heavylog version", which writes a lot of information into "keeperfx.log". In case of the game hanging on suddenly disappearing, you may send a last few lines of the generated LOG to the author with your description of the bug. Note that "keeperfx_hvlog.exe" requires a lot more CPU than standard version, and may be slow even on new computers. Also, the generated LOG file may be very large, and after a few hours of play it will have several hundreds megabytes. This is why you should use standard "keeperfx.exe" if you're not planning reporting any errors. Both versions will recognize all command line options described below. Command line options: -nointro The intro sequence won't play at startup. -nocd The CD Sound tracks won't play. -1player Allows playing multiplayer maps in skirmish mode. This is normally ON, so the option has no effect. -nosound or -s Disables all the sounds. -fps <num> Changes the game speed; default <num> is 20. -usersfont Disable the AWE32/64 SoundFonts (.SBK files). -alex Used to show the 'JLW' easter egg. And not only that. -level <num> Brings you directly to level number <num>. After the level is finished, quits the game. Note that level number must be 1..65534. -human <num> Changes human player to <num>. This option will work properly only in skirmish mode. Single player levels must be specially designed for this option to work. Also, the selected player must have heart on the map. -q Works like '-level 1'. -columnconvert I assume it converts the columns data. Watch out with this one or you may be unable to play the game again. -lightconvert Same thing, but for lights. -vidsmooth Smoothes the 3D view using 1-pixel bilinear blur. This consumes more CPU, and the effect is merely visible, so blurring is disabled by default. -ppropoly <mode> Allows to control "pentium pro polygon rendering". Default value is 0, which means the game will detect if the CPU is modern enough and enable advanced rendering based on that. For processors below Pentium Pro (today such CPU would be ancient) the game disables advanced polygon lightning computing. Setting <mode> to 1 will make sure the advanced rendering is always enabled, and setting it to 2 disables Pentium Pro polygons regardless of the CPU. -altinput Uses alternate mouse input method. This changes the way of computing mouse position; with this option, position is not reset to screen center every time movement is detected. May be helpful if original method isn't working right (ie. mouse stops). -packetsave <filename> Writes a packet file (replay file) when playing. After using this option, you must start a new level (or use '-level' parameter). Saved replay will work properly as long as you won't change any of the game files. Even a minor change in map or configuration may make the replay invalid. -packetload <filename> Loads a previously created packet file. Starts the level for which packet file was created, and continues the gameplay. You may exit this mode by pressing Alt+X, or take over the control by pressing ALT+T. Note that this option is experimental, and packet files may sometimes not work as intended. Troubleshooting: Q: When I click "Install" and select my CD-ROM where original DK is, the game tells there are no required files. A: You need to select "KEEPER" folder on the CD-ROM, not the whole CD. Q: When I click "Install", select "KEEPER" folder, then I click that I want to copy files - the loader shows "Access denied" error message. A: In that case, you have to run "loader.exe" with administrative privileges. Another solution is to give all users write access to the folder where KeeperFX is, and its sub-folders. Q: Colors are changed in menu or during gameplay, but no problem is mentioned in "keeperfx.log". A: Try using different color modes in KEEPERFX.CFG. For example, you could try 24-bit or 32-bit colour (ie. 640x480x24). It is best to use the same colour mode for all resolutions. Q: Intro doesn't play. LOG file says: Error: setup_game: Can't enter movies screen mode to play intro A: The problem is that your drivers can't support 320x200 mode. Change the resolution config lines in KEEPERFX.CFG into those written in next answer. Q: The game is pixelated/works in low resolution mode only. Can I make it work in higher resolutions? A: To switch resolutions during the game, press Alt+R. If the screen blanks, but resolution doesn't change, then the video mode used for higher resolution is probably not supported by your video card/driver. In that case, change the resolution config line in KEEPERFX.CFG into: INGAME_RES=640x480x32 You may also try other resolutions, but those over 640x480 may be unstable. Q: Game stops when loading a map. LOG file says: Error: setup_screen_mode: Unable to setup screen resolution 640x400x8 (mode 10) A: The problem is that your drivers can't support 640x400 mode. Change the resolution config lines in KEEPERFX.CFG into: FRONTEND_RES=640x480x32 640x480x32 640x480x32 INGAME_RES=640x480x32 Q: The game doesn't run. LOG file says: Error: setup_strings_data: Strings file couldn't be loaded or is too small A: Check if there's a language file in 'FXDATA' folder for the language which you've selected in KEEPERFX.CFG. Q: The game starts up to main menu, but when I try to load a level, it exits back to desktop. A: There may be many reasons for that. Try checking your LOG file. Also, try adding keeperfx.exe and keeperfx_hvlog.exe to DEP list in Windows - that's the solution to most common problem. DEP is a Data Execution prevention mechanism; search the net for details about it. Q: Mouse stops/teleports/moves incorrectly during the game. A: Try the '-altinput' command line switch. If the mouse moves too fast or too slow, try changing "POINTER_SENSITIVITY" option in "keeperfx.cfg" Q: I get a message 'Cannot initialize' when I try to enter network game. A: KeeperFX does not support serial cable, modem and IPX multiplayer. Use standard, retail version of DK if you wish to play serial or modem game. Use standard DK with IPX fix (or DK Gold) if you wish to play IPX game. KeeperFX supports only TCP/IP protocol. Q: I'm having problems with TCP/IP multiplayer. A: See 'tcp_readme.txt' for more information about multiplayer. Q: There are no special eye effects when I possess Beetle, Fly, Dragon, Tentacle etc.! A: Lens effect only work if the game detects over 16MB RAM. Also, make sure that "fxdata/lenses.cfg" is present and not damaged. Q: After some time of gameplay, many in-game elements stops working. Creature spells and some keeper spells (ie. Create Imp spell) ain't working. Same with placing traps/doors, and creating gold piles. A: The game has a limit for amount of 'things' - these 'things' are all the objects that generate sprites (graphic representations as an image). They are limited to 2047, and if all slots are taken, it's no longer possible to create spell shots, gold piles or doors. Creatures have additional limit - even if there are still free 'thing' slots, they are limited to 255. Q: What's the difference between 'keeperfx.exe' and 'keeperfx_hvlog.exe'? A: These files are identical except of one thing: 'keeperfx_hvlog.exe' writes A LOT of messages into 'keeperfx.log', allowing to trace any bugs and problems during the game. Because of the amount of data being written, the heavylog version, 'keeperfx_hvlog.exe', is a few times slower than standard version, 'keeperfx.exe'. If you're not planning to report any bugs, you should use 'keeperfx.exe'. Q: I've found a cheat menu, but it doesn't work! A: The three cheat menus are only partially functional. Reporting a bug: If you've found a bug in the game, you may report it to KeeperFX developers. But you will have to to do some tests to gather as much information as possible about the problem. First, if the game crashed, try looking into 'keeperfx.log'. If there are error messages in it, it's possible that you haven't properly installed or configured KeeperFX. In this case, check the 'Troubleshooting' section for description of your problem. Note that running the game again will overwrite the LOG file, so if you want to keep it, you'll have to make a copy. Second step is to try reproducing the error, and generate more detailed log. Run 'keeperfx_hvlog.exe' and play the level again, doing similar things you did first time, to check if it crashes. If you can't reproduce the error, there is still a chance that the LOG file from first crash is enough to locate the problem - so post the copy you've made on issue tracker, with your description of the problem, and information that you couldn't reproduce it. If you was able to reproduce the error, then post detailed description of how to do it on the issue tracker. Remember to include LOG file created by 'heavylog' version of KeeperFX. Note that the log file will be huge - you shouldn't attach it directly. Instead, you can compress it, or just paste a few (ie. 20) lines from its beginning and its end. Remember to include first and last line of the LOG - these are crucial, and doing it incorrectly would mislead the developers. If it is possible to reproduce the error by loading specific saved game and doing a few simple actions, then attach the saved game to your report. You can recognize file which contains specific saved game by number in filename, which is always equal po position of the saved game slot in 'load' menu. Config file details: FRONTEND_RES Allows you to select front-end resolution (used inside menu and for playing movies, but not in actual game) FRONTEND_RES=<failsafe mode> <movies mode> <menu mode> INGAME_RES Allows you to select up to five in-game resolutions. Resolution has the form of WIDTHxHEIGHTxBPP. Standard modes are: 320x200x8, 320x240x8, 512x384x8, 640x400x8, 640x480x8, 800x600x8, 1024x768x8. Different modes (ie. widescreen, higher res or higher BPP) may be used too, if only they are supported by your graphics card and video driver. You can switch between those resolutions during the gameplay by pressing Alt+R. Modes over 640x480 are experimental, and not completely stable. INGAME_RES=<mode1> <mode2> <mode3> .... SCREENSHOT Selects the format in which screenshots will be written. You can choose between BMP and HSI bitmap format. SCREENSHOT=<type> LANGUAGE This option is used to select language file, used for displaying texts. It also changes language in mentor speeches. Note that if the specific campaign doesn't have support for your language, the default language will be used. POINTER_SENSITIVITY Allows you to adjust the speed of mouse movement. Use this option only if you have serious issues with moving your mouse, or if the speed inside KeeperFX is completely different to the one in your OS. On most problems, you should change mouse speed in your OS preferences instead of changing this option. New in-game commands: Record a movie To record a FLC movie, press Shift+M during the game. A text "REC" will appear to inform you that recording is on (the text will not be visible in recorded movie). Note that only video is recorded, no sound. The movie will be placed in 'SCRSHOTS' folder; you may play it with "mplayer" or its clones. Note that the generated file may be large. Make a screenshot Use the Shift+C keys to make screenshot. The image may be written in 'mhwanh' HSI/RAW format, or Windows BMP format. Format is chosen in KEEPERFX.CFG, 'SCREENSHOT=' option, which may be set to 'HSI' or 'BMP'. Make and replay packet file These functions can be only enabled by command line parameters. You can make a packet file which contains the replay with '-packetsave' command, and then play it with '-packetload'. When in the replay, you may always take over control by pressing Alt+T, or exit with Alt+X. Release speed mode This mode is also available in original DK, but here it's a bit enhanced. Normally, the engine limits amount of game turns per second. This function allows to stop controlling speed - the game will work at its maximum speed, which highly depends on your computer hardware. To enter released speed mode, press Ctrl+'+' from numpad section of your keyboard. Pressing it more than once will increase frameskip - some of the frames will not be drawn, which will result in even greater increase in speed. To cancel the effect, press Ctrl+'-' as many times as you pressed Ctrl+'+' before. New and modified level script commands: ADD_GOLD_TO_PLAYER Allows to add some off-map gold as a reward to a player. Example: ADD_GOLD_TO_PLAYER(PLAYER0,5000) BONUS_LEVEL_TIME Sets time to be displayed on "bonus timer" - on-screen time field, used mostly for bonus levels. Like in original DK, this command accepts one parameter - number of game turns to start the countdown from. But now this command can be used to show bonus timer in any level. Setting game turns to 0 will hide the timer. Example: BONUS_LEVEL_TIME(12000) DISPLAY_OBJECTIVE The 2nd parameter can now have the following values: - 'PLAYERx' - zoom to player's dungeon heart - positive integer - zoom to Action Point of given number - negative integer - zoom to Hero Gate of given number - 'ALL_PLAYERS' - zoom button will be inactive LEVEL_VERSION Lets the game know if the level was designed specially for KeeperFX. To use new script commands, you must start the script with LEVEL_VERSION(1). Without it, the new commands will not work properly. PLAY_MESSAGE Allows to play any SOUND or SPEECH from the game. Example: PLAY_MESSAGE(PLAYER0,SPEECH,107) QUICK_INFORMATION These works same as in Deeper Dungeons, but allows message length up to 1024 characters. There are 50 quick message slots. QUICK_OBJECTIVE Same as in DD, but allows longer messages and more control over zoom button (like in DISPLAY_OBJECTIVE). QUICK_INFORMATION_WITH_POS QUICK_OBJECTIVE_WITH_POS Accepts additional XY coordinates of the zoom place. SET_CREATURE_TENDENCIES Allows to set tendencies: IMPRISON and FLEE, for a player's creatures. Example: SET_CREATURE_TENDENCIES(PLAYER2,FLEE,1) Note that a player must have prison when IMPRISON command is trigered; otherwise it won't make any change. SET_CREATURE_FEAR_WOUNDED Replacements for SET_CREATURE_FEAR. The value taken by this function is a percentage (0..100) and defines health drop required for the creature to escape from combat. A special value of 101 makes creature avoid any combat other than with one creature of the same kind. Example: SET_CREATURE_FEAR_WOUNDED(IMP,50) SET_CREATURE_FEAR_STRONGER Allows to define how many times stronger the enemy has to be for our creature to escape from combat. The value is in %. Example: SET_CREATURE_FEAR_STRONGER(AVATAR,200) REVEAL_MAP_RECT Reveals rectangular map area for given player. Requires coordinates of area center point, and rectangle dimensions. Numbers are scaled in subtiles (range is 1..254). Example: REVEAL_MAP_RECT(PLAYER0,132,96,13,11) REVEAL_MAP_LOCATION Reveals square area of subtiles around given location. Location meaning is identical to the one in DISPLAY_OBJECTIVE. For example, to reveal Hero Gate no.1: REVEAL_MAP_LOCATION(PLAYER0,-1,11) RESEARCH Changes amount of research points needed to discover an item in library. It doesn't affect research order, only amount of points. If the item never was in research list, it's added at end. Example: RESEARCH(PLAYER1,MAGIC,POWER_CHICKEN,10000) RESEARCH_ORDER When this command is first called, the research list for specified players is cleared. Using it you may create a research list from beginning. Note that if you won't place an item on the list, it will not be possible to research it. So if you're using this command, you must add all items available on the level to the research list. Example: RESEARCH_ORDER(ALL_PLAYERS,ROOM,SCAVENGER,50000) [...] - more RESEARCH_ORDER commands should follow. RANDOM It's not a command, but may be used instead of most parameters. If used instead of a number, then should look like: RANDOM(min,max) but may also be used instead of any other value. Examples: MAX_CREATURES(PLAYER0,RANDOM(12,19)) ADD_CREATURE_TO_POOL(RANDOM,20) Note that when used instead of player name, RANDOM may return ALL_PLAYERS. Also, the command shouldn't be used in multiplayer maps, as it will lead to synchronization problems. Value represented by RANDOM is selected at start of a map, and never changes during the gameplay.
