Re: TAB - Windows IF/Text Adventure Maker

This seems to be usable under Linux with Wine, whether for the editor or the games. I don't understand much about Wine, so I have tried it with the default settings.

Re: Westbury Mystery

I've looked at several copies including Dorothy's site and the one from ifarchive, but it seems to be the same everywhere. I had contacted Dorothy about this issue, but I didn't get an answer. I would have to test the game to make sure the bug is not coming from Unquill or the snapshot or whatever, ...

Westbury Mystery

I had decompiled the game Westbury Mystery, by Dorothy Millard, with UnQuill, and this had revealed the presence of corrupted data. After contacting John Elliott (the author of UnQuill), it seems that it came from the game's disk image. It is therefore possible that the distributed game is not fully...

Follow The Reader educational game

I didn't know the game Follow The Reader published by Walt Disney Computer Software. It's not really an interactive fiction, even if the concept is similar to a game like Mickey's Space Adventure. It's nice and maybe original.

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

"L'enigme du triangle" seems interesting. The gameplay seems to be in the style of "Local call for Death" and "Two Heads of the Coin".
I don't know if I can get the source code with UnQuill or something else.

it would really depend if they added anything from a technical standpoint.
No, these are not really technical articles. I don't know if The Quill or Adventure Writer are well sold in France, and if there are games that are archived somewhere.

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

Are you interested in French articles about The Quill from old magazines?

Yeah, that shouldn't be there. I'll change it the next time I add enough to do a new version.
You can also correct "auras for corrections" by "auraes for corrections ", but you can put my real name or nothing at all.

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

The Quill Reference Guide Version 1.0
I think there's a mistake in the example : LIGHT LAMP DROP 1 GET 1 MESSAGE SWAP 1 0 OK
The action "MESSAGE" is not needed : LIGHT LAMP DROP 1 GET 1 SWAP 1 0 OK

Re: Port of Tizpan, Lord of the Jungle in zQuill

I will look at the Amstrad CPC version. I chose this game because it seemed to use a recent version of The Quill with autog, autor etc. It was just to test zQuill.

Re: Port of Tizpan, Lord of the Jungle in zQuill

I don't know if I add color management. Inform 6 has good capabilities for color and style, but I don't know if it's really necessary.

Re: Port of Tizpan, Lord of the Jungle in zQuill

Very interesting. What sort of messages does it have issues with? All. Sometimes UnQuill adds a line feed when there is none. There is also the artificial hyphenation of words that can cause problems, and the formatting for a width of 32 or 40 characters that I don't respect so it causes problems t...

Re: Port of Tizpan, Lord of the Jungle in zQuill

there may be issues with the conversion process. I just forgot to activate the constant TRUNCATE before compiling. It is essential, because I left the 4 letter words in the dictionary without completing them unlike Land of the giants. It's fixed now, and there's nothing to push: https://gitlab.com/...

Port of Tizpan, Lord of the Jungle in zQuill

Scripted adaptation of UnQuill to zQuill of Tizpan, Lord of the Jungle written by Simon Avery; except for messages that do not seem to be easily converted automatically. There is a small error in Dorothy Millard's Walk Through: from the beginning, the first direction is west, not north. https://micr...

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

you've saved them correctly Not sure I understand how to do this, but I will try. So much easier in the PAW. Yes, and InPaws is a marvel. I had no problem putting French characters in PAWs. I display them with Gimp, and convert them to InPaws format with a few lines of C language. But The Quill see...
