The Quillax Ship is a site that has downloads for mods of Commander Keen and fangames that are made by me, Quillax.
The mods and games are only made for fun, not for profit, therfore making them free!
Last month, MFGG, a community focused on Mario fangames, did an awards ceremony that celebrates all the awesome things the community did last year! Why am I mentioning this, as you might be wondering? Well, Go! Go! Gooble!! was nominated for a couple categories: Best Minigame and Most Overlooked! Meanwhile, I was nominated for Best Spriter! No, the Gooble (or was it a Swoopin' Stu? Actually, never mind.) and I didn't manage to snatch any shiny trophies, but I thought it was cool to have my work nominated for a few things, nevertheless.
But hey, it seems that even if Go! Go! Gooble!! starred a dirty creature, its reception on MFGG has been rather positive and clean overall! The game currently has an average review score of 9.3/10 (it should actually be 9.5/10 if you do the calculation, but blame it on the system, haha), and it even won a shiny Game of the Month award! Really, I can prove the latter with this spotless announcement (opening that external link will actually open a new tab)!
Now that I've talked about how sleek that big Gooble actually is, I'd like to mention that troublesomekeen has been uploading videos that he did while beta-testing The Mortrix! If you wanna see them, you can see the first video here, where he does the first two levels. Don't expect much to have changed compared to the released version, but I think it's still rather interesting!
Hey, y'all! I know news updates have been coming up more frequently than usual, but I really want to let you know that a few days ago, I discovered and then fixed not one, but TWO issues in the Quillax Ship!
Issue number #1 was found when I was trying to download The Mortrix into a Windows 10 computer, where Windows Explorer said that the file is invalid! This isn't because of the zip file itself, but because of how the site downloads stuff since the download counter was added. I got that fixed, but I soon came across issue number #2: Opera (the web browser, not the music thing) sees The Mortrix as a virus, and so does Windows 10 if I downloaded it with another browser! No, this wasn't because it's about a deadly virus, but because of UNLZEXE! UNLZEXE is a tool that is used to decompress Commander Keen game executables so they can be patched; it was packed along with mods of Keen games that aren't shareware, including The Mortrix. The mods in this site have been updated to remove any trace of UNLZEXE and instead use a newer version of CKPatch, which does both the patching and decompressing whenever you run a mod and is seen as safe by modern computers. I will miss using UNLZEXE; it's been used for years without any known issues until recently. I suppose, though, that it's better to stop using it than have family members be unable to play some of my mods, and besides, my mods now take up a little less space!
So, if you've been having trouble trying to download my stuff, then please try again when you can. If you still have any issues, then I'd appreciate if you sent me an e-mail this time. If not, then have fun!
