Re: Land of the Giants (C64), Dorothy Millard

I will be curious to see the result of the code produced by such a tool. A 'The Quill compatible' mode in Adventuron could be nice.

Re: Land of the Giants (C64), Dorothy Millard

In some sentences, there are two spaces after the period. David Griffith also does this in some Inform 6 library messages. Is this an English rule? This is a problem with Adventuron, because it contracts the spaces into one (I don't know if you can put a character in a string with its ASCII or Unico...

Re: Land of the Giants (C64), Dorothy Millard

There are some synonyms to reconstruct that remain mysterious to me:
Word 10: D, DOWN, DESC(END), INTR(?)
Word 109: VERI(?), VERS(ION)

Re: Land of the Giants (C64), Dorothy Millard

Hey Garry, you are really indispensable! I'm going to do the Adventuron version (maybe also a French translation), and I'll ask her if she'll allow me to make it visible or not. I've already found some bugs in her code. I like Doroty's interview in CASA: A chat with Dorothy Millard, Australian adven...

Re: Land of the Giants (C64), Dorothy Millard

A very nice little game of initiation. I'm not sure if I'll be allowed to make an Adventuron remake?

Re: Land of the Giants (C64), Dorothy Millard

I don't know why, but Unquill refuses to give me a correct output of the Inform file with the -TI option.

Land of the Giants (C64), Dorothy Millard

A small bug that is probably not one, but is to be considered if you use The Quill. What next? >EAT BEAN You can't go that way. "You can't go that way." instead of "Sorry I don't understand you." or "You can't.", which seems more appropriate here. What's going on? In the source code, Bean is word nu...

Re: 8bitAG.com/info

I apologize; I didn't know what I was reading was "just notes"! I was a bit surprised by the "loading screen" aspect of some of the images being loaded, although this is partly due to my poor Internet connection. Everything's all right.

May I suggest you to use a high-performance compressor for your png picture files? A gain of more than 60% appears on some pictures.

Re: Adventureland.Z5 problem with Genie

I don't recommend this Perl script. I had watched it closely and it had a lot of problems; don't ask me which one, I don't remember. But as is often the case, he certainly has a poor understanding of the Cont instruction and the original game loop. As with ScottFree, the authors did not seem to have...

Re: Adventureland.Z5 problem with Genie

Did you take the "floating patch of oily slime"? It is necessary for the Zcode version before you rub the lamp.

Re: Adventureland.Z5 problem with Genie

It would be interesting to make a Zcode version not buggy. From which original 8-bit version should it be made? The TRS-80?

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

I wonder why John Elliott, in Unquill, considers in his code that a movement word is less than 20 and not 13? (That's not going to keep me awake at night!) Thanks again for the feedback. Thank you for the acknowledgements at the end of your document, but it's useless. You can remove them in the next...

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

It' s not probably the mistake of your life, but... NOTZERO flagon. => flagno. There is also an "Ink x y" in the unquill.txt documentation: *INK x y On the CPC6128, this is used to change the palette used: x is the pen number, 0-3, and y is the colour to use for that pen. Are you sure there's a flag...
