Well, I thought glulks waz too much of a different format anyway for any frotz interpreter to handle. I do remember once reading an artical saying that it's the versions of the inform language itself which get updated not the zcode format, so there's litle need to worry about an updated interpreter, but I'm not certain, --- -especially as all the recommended If starter packs I've seen come with older versions.


Are their any release notes?

Only thing have really noticed while trying to get this working up to now, is that most of the different versions you find are all oldish, whereas, this installation package in fact seems to have been put together/uploaded to that site dated as [26-Nov-2009].

Don't think it can handle things like glulx scripts, but most of the games have here are *.z5 or *.z8 and it's fine with them.

Stay well

Hi Jacub.

If I remember rightly, windows frotz and win frotz are actually two different programs, --- though they are similar (I'm not sure if windows frotz is an earlier version).

I do know win frotz tts is built on an older version of win frotz than the current one, because I actually foundthat win frotz tts won't play some of the infocom games like king arthur, where as standard win frotz will. Tts is convenient, ---- but I played using Hal's virtual focus for a long while (actually a couple of years before I started playing audio games), so I don't find this too much of a pest.

in fact, i originally used windows frotz on my old laptop with windows 98, but found the speech not to work (I had no idea sapi even existed back then or that I had to install it), but found Hal quite sufficient.

It's a shame tts wasn't updated to the latest win frotz, but I'm generally not sure how the tts developement is going, or even if developement is continuing at all.

Btw, this really! takes me back.
Beware the Grue!
