Dungeon keeper free via gog

As the title says, for Vday only I assume, dungeon keeper will be free to download from gog.com.

It's pretty old, but some of you are also pretty old so maybe that's a thing you're into. It's a pretty cool game.

Been having a lot of fun with this. I think on like the 7th dungeon I ran out of gold completely and all my imps died. I had to sell up a bunch of unused rooms to spawn more imps, and came back to win. SO EXCITING!

Also since I know at least ddm got the game, if you press alt+r it'll double the resolution making the game much more playable. It will also slow the game down, so you'll need to edit the dosboxDK.conf file and change cycles=8000 to cycles=max.

You could also dl KeeperFX. But it's much more work to get it to work with the gog version I hear, as the gog version is being emulated on dosbox. It's doable though. And I guess keeperFX has a few other features besides higher resolutions.

I didn't buy it because I saw the reviews stating it doesn't work for shit on Win7. Have you guys seen evidence of that?

First of all it's free snag it up! But it's the dos version being emulated on dosbox. I'm currently playing it on win7 and it works fantastic.

There are also several ways of playing dos games if one isn't working for you.

Forgot to actually download it...
Luckily 'cause it's a billion years old, it downloads in 15 minutes.

(Unfortunately, I promised myself I'd test speed-run PAYDAY before I submit a topic to SDA about it. So, maybe play it later.)

And if you open up the Dungeon Keeper Gold folder and click the Launch Graphic Mode Setup shortcut, then click Advanced you can make it so it starts in 3x size, and you can also use different scaling engines to decide how it is enlarged.

For example, by default it is normal, which just makes 1 game pixel = 4 screen pixels, whereas HQ makes 1 game pixel = 1 screen pixel and the surrounding pixels blend to make the game look better.

(Look on the DOSBox wiki for examples of each scaling engine.)

Tbh I played around with all the settings in that launcher, and none of them seemed to really make any difference beyond what doubling the resolution makes.

GOD DAMN IT.

4th or 5th level (the first one against another dungeon), and I use Possess Creature on a level 4 warlock, then proceed to kill 8 enemies and 2 enemy imps.

What next? Well, after taking the warlock to the enemy Dungeon Heart and using a Call to Arms on the Heart, no-one responds, I run out of gold, and turns out all my imps died while I was wrecking everything as that warlock.

GREAT.

(even in the info screen it says 'Enemy Creatures: 1')

I actually still have both of my original copies of DK and DK2. But I've had issues keeping DK2 running on Win7, though admittedly I've never thought about using dosbox. Thanks for the tip.
