I have a nasty feeling the only way to run it would be with a c64 emulator like vyce, unless someone ported it to windows or doss (and I don't recall hereing of such a port).

the problem is that screen readers don't seem to be able to interact with text in emulators, so there isn't a way to read what's going on (this is also why we can't run the original eamon games streight off with an aple emulator the way most people do).


Beware the grue!

All right, so I've found a zip archive containing the games.
Unfortunately, they are in the .tap format, and I don't know how to
get Windows or Linux to handle this. Of course, I'm Googling like
crazy, but I haven't found anything as of yet. aAny suggestions?


Thanks,
Ari

Hi all,


I was wondering if anybody knew how I could get my hands on the old
1982 text adventure of The Hobbit? It ran on the C64 on a cassette
tape or floppy disk (not sure if that was a 5 In. or a 3.5 In.), but
if anyone knows where I could get this, it would be awesome! Also, how
the heck would I make it run? Lol.


Thanks in advance,
Ari
