Thread: KeeperFX 1.0.0

  
  1. #1

    Default KeeperFX 1.0.0

    I'm happy to announce KeeperFX 1.0.0

    Numerous volunteers have put in a lot of work to deliver a long list of features and fixes. Notably, with this release, there is a jump from version 0.x to version 1.x, coinciding with the removal of the link to the keeperfx.dll file.

    This means that all original Dungeon Keeper code has been rewritten, establishing KeeperFX as a true open-source standalone game. Ownership of the original game is still and will always be required for copyright reasons.
    When installing KeeperFX 1.0, perform a fresh installation without overwriting any previous versions. Saved games cannot be migrated. There is a [wiki] that holds answers to most of the questions you may have, and we have a large and friendly [discord community] where we welcome all friendly new members.



    What's new in KeeperFX 1.0.0

    To see the full change list, with almost 500 changes, look here.

    Some of the highlights:
    • All remaining legacy functionality from the Dungeon Keeper executable has been moved to KeeperFX.
      - This means we are no longer limited by the original game in what we can change
      - There can now be more than 2048 things on the map at the same time
    • Maps are no longer limited to being 85x85, they can be larger or smaller
    • New units: Time Mage and Druid (are not used in old campaigns, but wait to see them in new maps)
    • Higher frame rates
    • Fixed crashes when playing in 4k resolution
    • Improved bridge building and digging for enemy computers
    • Stopped the best computer players from instantly dropping their entire army on you
    • Removed the lowest rated campaigns that were bundled, to give new users a positive first impression
    • Bundled campaigns got higher quality landview speeches
    • Added more translations for included maps and campaigns
    • Objects can have a direction (so face east for example)
    • More customization options for mapmakers and modders.
      - Add new creatures
      - Level scripts can be larger, resulting in more complex scenarios
      - Add new shots
      - New script commands
      - Custom music and sounds
      - Fully configurable traps
      - New decorative objects
    • New map textures
    • Orcs got an eating animation and the Avatar a torture animation
    • Maps can have larger hero parties
    • Improved multiplayer stability
    • Multiplayer map numbers can go past 255
    • Gems are now purple on the minimap to distinguish them from gold
    • Units visible on minimap no longer jump around


    Instructions

    KeeperFX 1.0.0 Complete is delivered as a complete installation, but requires a legally owned copy of Dungeon Keeper for copyright reasons. An original version (Disk, GOG, etc) is used to play, so after extracting the archive run the included Launcher and select 'Installation' to copy the required files over. Do not overwrite older versions with this new release.

    Installation instructions can be found on the official wiki. If you have any problems with the release, feel free to share here or list an issue on Github. There's also a troubleshooting section on the Keeperklan Discord. Note that you will be asked for the contents of the keeperfx.log file.

    Music files need to be downloaded separately if you want to have the game music play without your cd in your drive. New controls, because otherwise new people miss the one-click building.

    WELL DONE all who have worked hard to get this over the line..
    DK1 was the first game I bought for my first PC.. and has remained one of my favourites.
    Thanks you all so much for your work.. now that 1.0 is released.. I am just embarking on another complete playthrough (of DK1 and deeper dungeons) at least.
    All the best

    Hi There,
    I have just downloaded KeeperFX but when I click on the launcher.exe a pop-up says that it cannot run on my machine (windows 10). Please advise.
    p.s.
    I do have a copy of DK 1&2 on my PC.

    It does run on windows 10, so could you show a screenshot of the exact error message and post your keeperfx.log file so we can see what's going wrong.
    Did you run the launcher.exe to complete the installation process? Did you configure the screen resolutions to something your computer can handle?
