Welcome to shikadi.net, a site primarily dedicated to "classic games" - those from the early 1990s that ran on a PC under DOS.

The Classic-Game Modding Wiki is hosted here, which aims to document the file formats used by these games, as well as tools that can be used to examine and modify the games.

There are also a few game-specific sites hosted here, including the Commander Keen Wiki and CC314, one of the earliest Commander Keen fan websites.

Xargon port

As the Xargon source code was released in 2008, I decided to try porting it to SDL so that it can run natively on modern PCs. There are still a few bugs to work out before it is playable, but the majority of the port (graphics, sound and music) now mostly works.


PyOPL is a simple wrapper around an OPL synthesiser so that Adlib music can be played from within Python.

New layout

Well, I finally decided it was time to put a proper site up here, so I hope it makes it easier to find everything hosted here!
