yep, zip is just zcode with a few graphics thrown in for good measure (they really didn't have much luck naming file formats). Just open it up in win frotz and start playing.

Beware the Grue!

Hi Dark,
Ah yes--but most of my games I play on my BrailleNote, as it is easier to
play them that way. I don't have to make any adjustments to JAWS etc, and
also, I checked Arthur and it's a file with extension zip.
Best Regards,
Hayden

With the infocom if games you do sometimes need to look for the folder for
the correct file, ---- usually one ending in dat, and then run that in your
zcode interpreter (win frotz has a setting to open dat files).

This is not to be confused with dat, as in data files which many programs
use of course.

This is true of games like Arthur and the lirking horror which I've run
quite successfully with win frotz.

Hth.

Beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi,
A note about that site...some games seem to be only playable on a
computer.
I cannot, for example, find a version of the lurking horror to run under
Keysoft's JZIP  interpreter (or the derivative thereof), though luckily I
got the zorks and enchanter trilogy, plus some others that are excellent,
so
it's all good.
Best Regards,
Hayden

Well, copywrite would probably get in the way, though a game with similar
crazy humour would be fun.

You can however find and play the original infocom hhg text adventure game
written by adams. it's rfurstrating in it's puzles, but the writing is
hilarious and there's lots of new stuff that wasn't in the books such as
extra verses of vogon poetry.

anyway, you can find it at http://if.illuminion.de/index.html

Beware the grue!

Dark.

I can't speak on the football game, but Bps software's game 3D velosity
is

certainly intended as a realistic fighter game for adults.

Also, I might recommend a good many Gma games, --- such as tank
commander

and the recently released time of conflict.

While fantasy might not be your thing, I will say that audiogames
complexity in general has gone up, and I've been quite amazed at recent
developements such as entombed, ---- which is certainly not a simplistic
or kid orientated game despite the fantasy setting, ---- in fact as an
adult who loves fantasy or sf literature and games I do find your
assersion that a game is automatically childish just for being set in
that genre ratheer extreme.

That being said though, certainly games like Time of conflict, Gma tank
commander 3D velosity and perhaps lone wolf or shades of doom (which is
damnably evil and certainly despite the scifi setting), will probably
appeal to you.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

My first audio game was Battle ship back in 2000, after losing my eye
sight I was going crazy knowing this market was available; although I'm
grateful for the audio game market my thirst for gaming hasn't been
quenched; I was a Madden, NBA Live, Tyson punch out, Die Hard, Mortal
Combat ect...player; Audio games tends to stick to kids type games, and
not more adult/real life games like GTA or even Star Wars; Allot of us
have been around since the start of the gaming revolution and has
played

systems such as Coleco vision, Atari, Sega and Nintendo, and has played
hundreds of games; I know and hope audio games will pick up it's pace
as

technology improves, but I anxiously wait for some more serious game
titles that will expand the adult audio gamers mind and appetite. I
would love to fly that fighter jet again, go on realistic adventures
without goblins and ghost's, and seriously play a good Football game
and

finally lead my EAGLES to The Super Bowl..LOL.. Thanks
