Re: TRS-80 experts... John Olson & John R. Olsen

I've converted a game called "Island of Secrets" adventure for the MC-10, but I don't see any author info in the source. I haven't done Gymnasium, or the others. Sorry, I can't be of much help here.

Re: Planet of Death

You're right. Here's the info on the source I used for my port to BASIC. // "Planet of Death: Adventure A". Original by Artic Computing, ported to // TI-89 and TI-92+ by Zeljko Juric, based on generic C port by Paul Taylor. // You need TIGCC crosscompiler with library 2.0 or greater to compile it. /...

Re: Another Classic Ported to TRS-80 MC-10

I have ported "Silverton Adventure" from the book The Second Rainbow Book of Adventures. Condensed to fit a 20K MC-10 and now with word wrap. Anyone aware of a playthrough or map? Looks like it is full of tricky puzzles.https://youtu.be/fGl8QEEqsEw

Re: Planet of Death

Ported some source I found on line from the ZX81 version to TRS-80 MC-10. Complete walkthrough video here:
https://youtu.be/hlQTlEoR5ko. I remember lots of bugs in the original ZX81 source that I fixed in various ways to make it work like the walkthrough for the Speccy version, I think.

Re: Does 'De Tijdmachine' exist for Spectrum ZX?

I think I might try translating this to English and porting it to MC-10. Is it a good game?
