Hello,

I've made a quick "mod" that tweaks the config and updates DOSBox to version 0.76.0 of the "staging" fork. Here are some of the improvements:

- A whole new menu system styled after the Keen 4/5/6 status screen
- Keen Dreams Shareware v1.20
- FormGen's Keen 6 Demo
- Cloud save support for both Keen Dreams and 6
- DOSBox Staging 0.76.0 32-bit (64-bit builds had a regression)
- Sharp bilinear scaling for a proper aspect ratio without uneven pixel ratio artifacts
- 10,000-cycle limit to reduce stuttering

To install, simply extract the .zip file into wherever you installed the game, overwriting files when prompted.

Disable auto updates in Galaxy.

Do not use the "Graphic Mode Setup" program from GOG. It will overwrite this config.

Download it from my Github here

Enjoy!

(I've attached a screenshot of the new game selection menu)

Just to note you can easily plug in a copy of Keen 6 if you still own the original disks like I do
Yep! If you have a copy of Keen 6, you can replace the demo in this pack and have the whole series filled out.

on less-than-legal sites, yes. legally? no unless you own a nintendo switch as a version of keen dreams was released for that or grab a retail copy off of ebay.
The shareware Keen Dreams is identical to the retail version, other than a quick nag screen. It's not worth buying any of the modern re-releases to get a legitimate copy.

As for Keen 6, that's much tougher. I bought the book/CDs portion of the id Anthology from eBay a while back and that comes with the CGA version, but there are patches out there to convert it to EGA. It's kind of expensive for just Keen 6, but it's a neat piece of id history.
