Been a long time since I wrote fortran but IIRC the first character on the output line was to perform carriage-control of the LPT, so you'd have to always have a leading pad character such as a space in order to get the output lines to be correct. Some characters were reserved actions, 1 = FF from memory. I've not looked at the code involved but that'd be my first thoughts

Some time ago, an old version of the Adventure game was found.
According to Woods, the March 11 files are the originals from Crowther.

Maybe this is of come historical interest, and could be part of the SIMH
games kits.  This version builds without modifications with the DEC F40
compiler.  I tested this in ITS.  Credits to the person who provided
build instructions on YouTube!

Unfortunately, there's a problem: All lines output by the program are
missing the very first character.  I tried to look at the file input
code, and the SPEAK subroutine, but I'm not well versed in FORTRAN IV.
