Patch:One Moment Window

From KeenWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The 'one moment' window appears in the Keen Galaxy games. A graphic image saying the same also appears in the Keen Vorticons games. Both of these originally served a purpose, explaining why nothing was happening. However on modern computers things progress rapidly enough that they serve little purpose and are now more 'window dressing.'

Keen Vorticons Image

This image appears as the game is loading (But after graphics have been decompressed) The image is placed, horizontally and vertically over a black screen.
