Ibrahim! I downloaded the Infocom collection that you sent to the list recently, have read the beginners' guide, and I recognise many of the commands from my Colossal Cave days, and even the
suggestion of drawing a map of the location of rooms and routes was familiar.
Obviously, that was written for sighted players. Has any totally-blind one found a way of doing the
same?
The "colossal Cave" is the only infocom game I have played and that was in the days before I had
access to the internet so I used a floppy disk.
I would like to have a crack at the ones you made available, but how do you start them? I thought
that there would be an executable file, but there isn't.
Is the winfrotz a separate program that I have to download? When I try to open the files that are marked with a z, the computer tells me that it can't open them as it has to know in what program they were created: do I want it to go on-line to get the appropriate software? I don't know what
to tell it.

Hi Jacob.

Ah now, that's a pity, the classic Infocom games are something worth
playing, I hope you'll chance your arm and test your metal with these, I
still enjoy them even though I've played and completed many of them years
before.

All the best and send the link to the archive as soon as you have it
uploaded.

Thanks, re: infocom, but, no worries - while don't play those types of games
too often, do have winfrotz, filfor etc. here, and also have like a DHTML
instance of an IF handling app, so getting them to work isn't an issue -
just don't get around to it often enough...<smile>

Reminds me, must also spend bit more time playing around with colossal cave
adventure, but, the android version, that's free, and also includes it's own
TTS output.

Stay well
