Re: Might and Magic 4-5: World of XEEN feedback

I think I'm mostly at the limit of things to easily replicate and fix. For the remaining bug stories I created, I'll ideally need savegames just before combat or before the sound occurs, etc. to investigate further. Keep in mind some things may simply be bugs in the original, or the way it's meant t...

Re: Might and Magic 4-5: World of XEEN feedback

Thanks for the feedback, I'll add them to the bug tracker. Not sure if there's enough time to look into all of them before the release, but I may be able to fix some of the easier ones. Do you happen to have any savegames from the problem areas? If so, you could attach them to the bugs I've created ...

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

@dreammaster Hmm, ok, do you know if the infocom c64 releases share a common engine? Hehehe, I'll add myself and ask if you could support "basic language" adventures :-) Thank you edit: Ok, seems not possible to add. Most games i own come with some kind of bootloader which exist as file on the flop...

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

Will c64 floppy images (.d64) be supported too? ifarchive.org features some games on this format and i'm not able to extract the files from those images. No, not unless the d64 games in question share a common engine that can be re-implemented in code, and just use the d64 files for their game scri...

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

The two I mentioned aren't. The two I mentioned are listed as available from the authors github, just as I linked above. I'll have to look into them, then. I have no problem with it being supported, I was just surprised to see a game using that engine that was so different. Currently it doesn't rec...

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

A second question. I was looking at some of the other engines, and came across the Archetype games. Two of the games are listed at the authors github. https://github.com/gitosaurus/archetype/tree/master/archetype/games One is "Guess the Animal" and the other is "Bare bones adventure". However, thes...

thank you
No, turns out I was wrong. Looks like the Magnetic interpreter written by Niclas Karlsson, that was used for Gargoyle, doesn't support those game versions at all, sorry. Maybe that's something that can be looked into some time in the future.

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

It seems several of my magnetic scrolls games have files that don't match the format. Only "The pawn" seems to work for me. I'll try and have a look at it tomorrow. I think the current Glk detection code wrapper I added around the original interpreter code may be at fault, and not passing legitimat...

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

Could the detection entry for tcomremake be updated to "The Colour of Magic remake" as it's written in British English. No problem. I'll take care of it tongiht. Also does the graphic version of tcomremake need to be added to the unstable list of games like the rest of the version 6 z-code games, o...

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

1) Will ScummVM be able to reach into .zip archives or do i need to unzip all of them first? You'll need to unzip them first. ScummVM doesn't support running games directly from zip files. 2) TAG is an early prototype to ADRIFT, are (will) they (be) supported? . suffix is .TAG If the current Adrift...

Re: Level 9

It really depends on what system your games were for. You'd likely get better results doing a websearch for "extract files for XX system disc image".

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

One last question: I get wrong colours on nearly every game on my BE machine. Is this a known issue? e.g. all graphics (like the pillars that borders the text) in zork zero are wrong, also the main title etc. The current Glk Frotz code is pretty much a lost cause for playing v6 games. When I have t...

I can add a list with all unknown games/demos and only add items by engine (adrift, agt, hugo etc.).
Sounds good :)

Re: You are in a maze of twisty little passages, all alike

I have written a local script that pulls every supported game and demo from ifarchive.org... I hope you are ready for a lot of tracker items then :-) I can start after the 17th of August, if that is ok? Sure, whenever. Though it'll be better to keep the tracker items to a minimum consolidated list,...
