the Eamon stuff apparently comes with basic, which is probably why it runs
okay on my windows Xp machine and doesn't require me to use dosbox or
what I found is when the games are maximized to full screen (as they are by
default), hal can't interact with them at all, so it's necessary to press
alt enter to get them back to a manageable console window.
the games themselves are actually text, however by default the main hall
(where you access all the other games), is graphical.
You can alter this in the control panel (option 7 from the first menue, ----
then option 2 to alter).
there is unfortunately one miner issue. The program uses a huge amount of
menues, ---- arrow keys and enter style menues.
while the options are readable, it's a highlight box which actually shows
you what option you've selected. Unless you can check the text colour or
highlighting, there won't be an indication with a screen reader.
Once you actually start one of the adventure games though, everything is
pretty standard if stuff, ---- with a limited parza, but heavy focus on turn
based combat and stats.
the only issue I'm having currently with hal is that when windowed, some
longer lines of text seem to disappear off the edge of the window and not be
displayed. i'm mucking about with console window settings to try and fix
this, ---- but any suggestions would be appreciated.
