The following files needed to be placed in the same folder. You don't need other Keen files, in case you want to keep the editor in a different folder.
- Note: ? is the episode whose tile(set) graphics you want to edit.
- Note: ktiledef.txt is a settings file. Presently there is only one option: the first character
in the file sets the overall zoom level for the editor. Use values 1-9.
When running the editor (ktiledit.exe), it automatically loads the tileset.
The best way to learn the editor is by trying it out. Here are the commands:
|up & down||scroll tileset up and down|
|left mouse button||chooses a tile|
|right mouse button||expands tile area (maximum is 8x8 tiles)|
|click outside tileset||makes selection go away|
|Return / Enter||openes the chosen tiles in editor (some need to be chosen)|
|F5||saves the tileset to disk, replacing the file that was opened|
|Ctrl + F4||loads the tileset from disk again, if you need to (unsaved changes are lost)|
|1 - 4||selects the view|
|click the top of the screen
|changes current color
(you can see the current color in the mouse pointer)
|click tiles with left mouse button||changes pixel color -> draw|
|click tiles with right mouse button||changes pixel color to chosen color's darker or brighter shade
(this only makes sense if you're using the original palette)
|Ctrl + Z||undo changes.
to undo more than once simply let off the 'Z' and then press it again
|Return / Enter||saves the changes to tiles and go back to tileset view|
|ESC||returns to tileset view without saving tile changes|
- Note: Tiles are not saved to disk until you press F5. Make sure you do.
