Hi.

If you go to http://if.illuminion.de/infocom.html you can find a lot of the old infocom games which you can then just download.


To play them without compatibility problems you can just open the zcode inform files themselves in a frotz interpreter.

hth.

Hi,
You actually have that one as an inform zcode file? The onlycopy I have
right now has them as DOS applications in .com format, and some of them,
like King Arthur, trinity, and A Mind Forever Voyaging, or either in. exe
format (JAWS does not seem to particularly like the format on those) or
they're in .com format and don't read correctly or at all.
Best Regards,
Hayden

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!

Dark.
