Rainbow Adventure / Jorge Mir

#1 Post by Strident » Sat Apr 04, 2020 1:40 pm

We don't currently have the this type-in for TRS-80, by Jorge Mir, in our database...
Rainbow Adventure from Rainbow magazine (July 1982)
https://archive.org/details/rainbowmaga ... 7/mode/2up

It's linked to Jorge's "adventure system" AdvMaker, that would published in the following (August 1982) issue
https://archive.org/details/rainbowmaga ... 5/mode/2up

They both have linked to the first Rainbow magazine competition, which we've discussed in the past together with the Rainbow books of adventures, which collected together a lot of the entries.

Does anyone know if Rainbow Adventure has already been typed in?

Presumably Jorge's Dreamer (which we do have an entry for) uses the AdvMaker framework? I wonder how many competition entries used Jorge's base code?

You won't find it listed for the TRS-80, because it's a CoCo game. (The Rainbow was a CoCo magazine.) It probably runs on a TRS-80, as their BASICs are almost identical, except for the addition of graphics and sound commands on the CoCo. I haven't tried it and I don't know which TRS-80 model it would be.

'Dreamer' bears no resemblance whatsoever to 'Rainbow Adventure'. 'One Room Adventure' has one or two similarities (as you would expect from the same author), but it doesn't appear to be based on the same framework.

Anyway, to answer your question about whether 'Rainbow Adventure' has been typed in, here it is in all its glory on a disk image.

Cool, thanks!

The whole nomenclature of the whole Tandy/TRS-80 range of computers is very confusing! :)

For the record, here's the original(?) source code for One Room (taken from one of the Rainbow Book Of Adventures disk-images that are floating about online somewhere):

And, just for the heck of it, here's the listing extracted from the disk-image and saved as plain text:
