Re: Ship Wrecked

Yeah, another person who looks very interesting. After Ship Wrecked I'll take a look at Sunken Treasure which is also very small. For the get/drop/wear and remove actions, it precedes the action with a test which has the effect of displaying, in case of impossibility of the action, the message "I ca...

Ship Wrecked

Ship Wrecked by Gavin Ellicott & Scott Julian 1986.
A very short The Quill game with many bugs fun to fix. The author probably didn't finish his project because there are unused items and messages. The game in its current form is achievable.

Re: Colossal Cave Adventure (Anubis Software)

There is also an 'OK' instruction missing in this action block:

Code: Select all

GET   OIL        AT            49
                 PRESENT       58
                 SWAP          58  60
                 DONE  
Just replace the 'DONE' with 'OK'.

Re: Colossal Cave Adventure (Anubis Software)

By the way, there's another problem concerning the Spelunker's Gazette: This should be found in the anteroom (loc. 38) and should be dropped at Witts End (loc. 39), which scores 10 points, but the Gazette is nowhere to be found. It is possible to fix this on the .tap or .tzx file. In a hexadecimal ...

Re: Colossal Cave Adventure (Anubis Software)

Location 58 shows a NE exit when it is E. I put object 57 in location 38, and set flag 17 here: EMER _ Conditions: PRESENT 42 Actions: SWAP 42 43 PLUS 30 5 PLUS 26 1 SET 17 This prevents you from teleporting from location 26 to location 58 without first visiting location 58. I don't know if this fix...

Re: Colossal Cave Adventure (Anubis Software)

I have ported the game to zQuill. I don't know if I can put the code on my repository. It could be interesting to try to fix the bug.

Re: Gilsoft PAW/Quill

Thank you. I wanted to know if 'sysmess' displays a new line, but the answer is not in the documentation, and I guess not.
I don't know if you have seen my previous message which is on another page?

Re: TAB - Windows IF/Text Adventure Maker

Your USERGUIDE.txt file uses special characters (‘ ¯ “) that may cause problems when opening it. If you do not want to save it in UTF-8, propose a version USERGUIDE_UTF-8.txt. You also use the grave accent (`) instead of the single quote ('), but you may have good reasons for this. The use of (¯) ch...
