Re: Return To Zork Different Endings/Versions?

I used to have the Reelmagic version (which one of the original designers sent to me) but I sold it to someone who had an infocom collection and had never heard of it. I might have saved the data somewhere, but I'll have to check. Because you can play all the MPEG files separately and watch all of t...

Re: Return To Zork Different Endings/Versions?

Hello. There are many different versions of this game, but for PC there are three versions: #1 - Floppy disc version -- no video and MIDI music #2 - CD version -- has some live video footage (replacing several locations, several character dialogue scenes, the ending, and also adds a new intro) and h...

Re: Legends of Zork is no more...

I imagine if they would have just strained their resources a bit to get that Dungeon implemented (which is seems that it was almost 100% complete), then they would have kept around a massive herd of people.

Re: Zork rereleases at Good Old Games (GOG.com)

Has anyone gotten these yet? I am curious how the qualities of the scans look like for any of the games.

Re: Zork Nemesis: unusual problem!?

If I recall correctly, this is not actually a video-sequence, but a pan. What is happening, is that you are quickly climbing the rope and you need to click on the window to move outside. But because the game was configured for older systems, the panning on the newer systems goes ridiculously fast. S...

Re: Newbie Z1 lamp help

I used to know. Something like 200 or 300 or 400. It is an even number like that, can't recall exactly.

Re: Newbie Z1 lamp help

There is no way. The only thing to do is to turn it off whenever possible. However, there is an alternate light source. After figuring out how to acquire it, it is best to restart a new game and try to get this alternate light source as early as possible -- that way the lamp can be turned off for a ...

Re: Zork Re-release coming soon to GOG.com

When I talked with Activision a couple months ago, they had vaguely mentioned something about Zork games being released for updated systems. As vague as it was, I wasn't certain that I even had heard correctly. But this seems to confirm it.

Re: REAL Double Fanucci cards?? No way! Really?

Hello.

Has anyone by any chance seen these yet on Gruppy? I usually check once a day, but I know I've missed a couple days here and there.

Zork Nemesis Design Documents

I finally got done going through all the documents I have and organizing them together in a nice readable format. It took quite a bit of effort to track down all the materials that I did (and I wish I had more). But as much as I have thus far been able to gather from the Zork Nemesis design material...

Re: Facebook and Twitter

Well, I know that I will be continuing to update the Zork Compendium. Working currently at getting the Zork Nemesis design material in a nice format. I also have lots more images, etc to be putting up, including lots of rare Zork Nemesis stuff.

Re: Facebook and Twitter

I'm still working on the Zork Compendium (have decided not to spend my time on it as much as I did last year, but still hoping to get it gradually done) and still trying to track down various bits of new material. I still have a bit more to do in putting all the Zork Nemesis design materials into a ...

Re: Looking for RTZ MPEG Version

That's the same reason that I cannot get the DOS MPEG version to run either.

Re: Looking for RTZ MPEG Version

I used to have the Mac MPEG version of Return to Zork not too long ago, but I recently sent it to someone else.

I do, however, have the ultra rare DOS MPEG version of Return to Zork still.

Re: I don't understand....

It shouldn't be too hard to remake the website into sometime more similiar like it used to be -- especially considering that most of it was simply links to infocom material which would be easy to simply upload and link to. I do not like the wiki format at all, and when I did the Zork Compendium, I d...
