Help may refer to three different kinds of patches depending on the episode involved. Keen Vorticons patches are mostly simple text patches. Keen Galaxy patches are more involved, while Keen 6 does not have a help menu, both Keen 4 and 5 do, one with multiple sections, images, colors and text. Finally Keen dreams has a unique multi-menu setup that as yet has not been patched.
The following pages relate to help of the various games; patches that do not fit neatly into these apges are listed in the following sections.
Vorticons 'Press F1 for help' image
These patches allow alteration of the second image used in the main menu screen, which indicates that help can be accessed by pressing F1. The location of the bitmap and the bitmap used can be altered. Vertical position is in pixels, horizontal position in 8x8 blocks.

Don't display image
These patches stop the display of the help image or the help image and the title screen.
|Patch: Don't show help image and\or titlescreen|
Disable help entirely
This patch completely disables the help text; pressing the F1 key produces no result. Note that the Keen 3 patch works differently. In Keen Galaxy help can either be disabled completely or under certain circumstances.
