kkrieger beta
A first-person shooter in under 100KB

Kkrieger is a portable first-person shooter in a single 95KB executable.

The program was written in 2004, and despite its tiny size, it looks and feels much like similar games of the day. You must run around a maze of corridors to an atmospheric soundtrack, picking up guns, ammo, health packs and more, while shooting assorted monsters before they get too close.

Controls are mostly keyboard-based, and also much the same as other programs: press W/ A/ S/ D to move around, space to jump, 1-5 to switch weapons, left mouse button to shoot, and Esc to pause or close a game.

PLEASE NOTE: Kkrieger doesn't run smoothly with modern Windows and PCs, and there's a good chance it won't launch at all on the default settings.

To run the program successfully, right-click pno0001.exe, select Troubleshoot Compatibility > Try Recommended Settings.

Alternatively, create a shortcut for the program, right-click it and select Properties > Compatibility. At a minimum, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)".

BEWARE: kkrieger needs to take full control of your hardware to run successfully, and this means running full-screen and grabbing your mouse. That's not an issue while you're playing, but if you Alt+Tab away, you might find you can't move the mouse or Alt+Tab back. To avoid problems, close kkrieger properly via the Esc menu rather than switch away, and ideally save any current work before you play the game.

Verdict:

Kkrieger probably won't hold your interest for long as a game, but squeezing this much functionality into under 100kb is still a hugely impressive technical achievement.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
