Re: Title and in game music in text adventures

Miss Marple for the c64 with the original tune from the Miss Marple movies with Margeret Rutherford from the sixties. Mystery Voyage c64 (title music, sound effects and speech), De Sekte c64 (plays music each time you advance).

Re: Board quota for attachments has been reached

Good point. I've removed 29 of my attachments (all from the adventure challenge). The others (38) I'll check which ones are interesting to keep.

Edit: in total I've removed 46 of the attachments I had uploaded.

Re: Board quota for attachments has been reached

I guess it should help if we remove the adventure challenge. This post has the most attachments and I guess nobody is reading it any longer.

Re: What happened to nostalgia8.nl for Dutch adventures?

Sorry to hear that. I used to have a lot of contact with the owner for a while. He was a user here but I see his last activity on this forum was in April 2022.

Re: Zodiac Castle Apple II

I've solved the game and I've uploaded a walkthrough. Unfortunately the available version is bugged and can't be solved without changing the code. When you drop the rats in the torture room the grate should open, but this does not happen although the text does mention it.

Re: Zodiac Castle Apple II

Played a bit more. The problems I have to solve before finishing the game are: -lowering the drawbridge -opening the grate in the torture chamber. This seems to be a bug because the game says you have opened the grate but is stays closed. -learning how to move around in the round room. -You can kill...

Zodiac Castle Apple II

Still playing Zodiac Castle. Because solving the game not really concerns the other topic I decided to make a new topic. Unfortunetaly the game seems to be bugged (in the torture room) and therefore unplayable without cheating. I still would like to know how far I can get. I managed to locate 27 of ...

Re: Recovered Adventures

I've been exploring a bit more in Zodiac Castle. I've visited 79 locations getting a score of 73% of the area visited. I solved some puzzles, but at this moment I have no clue what puzzles I have to solve apart from lowering the drawbridge which I only managed to solve partly. I've found a way to ge...

Re: Recovered Adventures

I have had real problems with progress in this game. It definitely has a different layout to Windmere Estate however. Very rarely have I been stumped so early in a game and cannot find a way into the castle. I took the unprecedented step of using Ciderpress to investigate but I still couldn't find ...

As far as I'm aware only Jacob has the authority to fix the problem, but I haven't heard from him for a while. I'm not even sure that he knows of the problem
The problem is known, but the solution is not (at least for the moment). We talked about it a few weeks ago.

Re: Need some help with Oric emulator

Thank you! That one is easier to use.

Problem is the program starts automatically after loading. I use !LOAD"filename.bas" . Is there a way to prevent this?

Need some help with Oric emulator

Can someone explain how to load a disc into Euphoric without booting it. I want to look in the directory and load a specific file. First time ever I'm using the Oric.
