well the glulx interpreter seems to run better than the old z5 3 8 and 6 codes.
They call it inform7 but who knows.
Unlike the frots stuff this glx ssystem runs better.
git is a really good interpreter.
now if it could support old z files then I'd play those to.

Hi Shaun,
Lol; in a way you do. Glulks is really the same format as .z5 or .z8 files.
The difference is that glulks (.zblorb) games can incorporate sounds and are
also used if your project gets exceptionally massive.

Best Regards,
Hayden

Subject: Re: [Audyssey] Serious pause bug in MOTA

well I didn't fully grow up in a sheltered world in fact I found most
things on my own.
I started playing graphical games eventually getting some sfx to what some
were
thinks like comic, wolf 3d, duke1 and a few other things were what I
played with till the net came out.
It was then I learned about the rest of the stuff.
The old gaming thing lasted till 2005 when my old dos system crashed.
Now I don't even touch any zcode or external dos programs or agt stuff.
Its hugo, glulx and tads though seriously with the need to navigate
round games with my vertual curser I can't get as involved as I used
to so audio is what I prefur.
The first hybred I played was from a mojoinst disk called intergalactic
battle
An actual action screen for gameplay was graphical but everyting else
was menu driven.
