Hi Haiden.

I was only going on the basis that LLewie already seems to have done this with the great escape, making a playable windows version, ---- so possibly it could be done with the others.

Hi Dark,
Probably. Though someone would have to want to port the code to a language
that will compile an executable. Interestingly enough, the .bas extension
files are used for standard code modules in VB, though methinks it probably
wouldn't be compilable in that format.

Best Regards,
Hayden

Well, if it takes that sort of trouble, ---- would it be possible to have
them converted to something more playable the way The great escape already
has been?

That would be welcome indeed.

Hi Carl,
No no, GWBASIC was the program they were written in most likely. An
example
of an interpreter would be something like basica.

They are written in basic and you will need an interpreter to run them. I
heard of a program called GWBasic a while back, but not sure if it still
exists or is being developed.

After Michael asked about these it got me curious and I downloaded and
tried
them.

I assumed that sinse they said they ran with doss, there would be a file I
could run under the console in windows to play the game, such as an exe,
com
or bat file, but there are none of those around in the folders, just a bas
file which does nothing when I try to open it.

Are these completely un runnable under windows? and if so, any chance of
making them runnable?

I just rather fancy the idea of single player adventure games, ----- maybe
lewie could fix these the way he did with the great escape, which is
deffinately fun.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
