Re: New Zork Site

When you say Zork De-Compilation project, is it refering to the original Zork, or the later games? Link, perhaps?

Re: Riddle me this

Not necessarily. But do look at the last two lines, it's a dead giveaway when you think about it.

Re: H2G2

Although I have to disagree, I think Life, the Universe, and Everything was the best. I didn't care too much for the last two books. I also have The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul, but I haven't read it yet, is it any good?

Don't use KDE, major resource hog. Use a lightweight window-manager like fluxbox and do all your work in a terminal. Easy.

To play something with mplayer, it's just "mplayer " Really complicated.

Mandrake is teh bad.

Anyway, yeah, mplayer can work with almost any type of file, codec doesn't matter. No clue why it would mess up.

Wow...

I got RTZ to work using a DOS emulator called DOSBox. I know a lot of people here have been asking about RTZ...this may be the solution.

http://dosbox.sourceforge.net/

Free and open-source. Runs on Linux and Windows (Mac too, I think.)

Enjoy.

Re: Zork-inspired?
