Hi chaps and chapesses

Zork 9210 is now available to download from <!-- BBCode auto-link start -->http//www.odysseus-software.co.uk<!-- BBCode auto-link end -->

I've also uploaded some .nim files I made to my site while I was bored.

This is 0.8 of Zork9210, but it seems to be fairly bug free, but let me know [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Thanks dimitri!

Let me know how you get on, I've tested loads of games and it all seems to work, but it needs a good workout [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Manowar - You may be able to download some games in Spanish.

Colin over at <!-- BBCode auto-link start -->http//www.aikon.ch/<!-- BBCode auto-link end --> reviewed Zork and he tested it with a German language game, so if you can find a Spanish game, you will be able to play it [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Unfortunatly most Infocom type games are text only, some later games has graphics but they were very poor 16 colour images. I do not plan to support graphics, but I may support sound.<font size=-1>[ This Message was edited by AndySymbian on 2001-11-23 2103 ]</font>

Andy, I downoaded the <i>Crown Jewels</i> and I get "<i>Application</i> Zork9210 / <i>Reason code</i> KERN-EXEC / <i>Reason number</i> 3" whenever I try to load a saved (sherlo.sav) game. Is there anything to do?
It would be nice to have the sound files used; $SOUND doesn't give any result - I suppose it is related to SoundBlaster commands on PC?
Finally, the typeface is for people with teally strong sight - for the moment my sight isn't that bad. When I tried to change the font, letters beame visible, but rightside text has been croped.
Else, <b>Zork</b> is a passion!

____

Rafe, I think it worths posting <b>Zork</b> on the frontpage?<font size=-1>[ This Message was edited by dimitri on 2001-11-25 0955 ]</font>

dimitri - for load, you must make sure you load correct game. So type "save" to save a game and "restore" to load a previous game.

You cannot use open button to load a save game! Only a .z5, .z8 or .dat file.

Let me know if save game does not work for you after this.

I am hoping to get sound working on next release [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

I agree fonts are hard to read - unfortunately Nokia 9210 does not have many fonts. However I cannot reproduce the "rightside text" probem on Windows emulator or Nokia 9210. Are you restarting a game with the Open Story button after changing fonts? I have changed the Font code slightly on 0.81 which I just uploaded to

Hi

Zork 9210 is now at version 0.83.

I've made some small changes in response to e-mail.

-Font handling is better (but far from perfect)
-loading and saving games should now be more intuitive.
-Reverted a silly changed that stopped v8 games such as "Windhall Cronicles" working.

Hi, Andy!
Thanks for ameliorating the typeface; it is more legible now. Although I have too little free time these days, I enjoyed Sherlock Holmes and the Crown Jewels - no serious problem encountered [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Thanks for the feedback [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Version 0.87 will be available tonight, and I've added a new menu that allows you to execute commands directly, such as "save", "restore", "inventory", "look" etc.

So it can save a bit of typing on the small Nokia 9210 keyboard [img]/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]

An alternative to Zork is my recent port (from EPOC) of Frotz called FrotzN. Zork9210 is actually based on this code.

You can download it from <!-- BBCode auto-link start -->http//www.geocities.com/epocif/<!-- BBCode auto-link end -->
