The Zork Library Clan

http://legendsofzork.com/clan/clan?id=12343 I've now donated my extra weapons to the clan. The clan needs a clan image preferably one that identifies it with The Zork Library site. Let me know if I can help with anything! Will ranks be upgraded, and if so, when? At the moment I can not invite anyone...

Re: Hi there

This bit of the registration process is a bit spooky: "You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any laws be it of your country, the country where 'The Zork Library' is hosted or International Law...

Re: Looking for RTZ MPEG Version

The link I posted above gives you the details but basically the only 68K Macs it works in is LC/Performa 580 series and 630 series. The only PowerPC Macs it works in is the 5200/6200 and 5300/6300 series. The card physically cannot be connected in other machines because it needs both an LCPDS slot ...

Re: I don't understand....

MacCentris, I'm glad you like the idea of contributing to a wiki because that's one of the things I've been thinking of doing. My hosting plan offers automated install and upgrading of MediaWiki. I think that's what wikia uses, right? Yes it's what Wikia uses, I've read about people installing it i...

Re: Looking for RTZ MPEG Version

Sounds like someone is bragging ¬_¬ Anyhow I'm happy for you.
I might just get one of those someday, I've got a couple of old Macs (Mac IIsi, IIci and PM8500/180). I just hope I can find that MPEG thing for one of them :-\
Oh well.

Re: Looking for RTZ MPEG Version

That is true although I don't like that the regular Mac version doesn't feature the full motion animations like the DOS version. Instead the Mac version basically displays a series of still frames and does transitions. I definitely agree that one of the bad things about the DOS version was the 'mum...

Re: Looking for RTZ MPEG Version

I have Return to Zork for Mac, is that what you're looking for? I'm not sure what you mean by Mac MPEG version? The Mac version had noticeable better graphics than the original DOS version, and all characters played movies when speaking, no more mummy looking characters with only their lips moving. ...

Re: I don't understand....

I sure hope the site regains it's popularity, the talk about the site's near disappearance a few months ago was my biggest concern. I've been looking at many Zork related sites in the web, and the history of Zork is far from being dead. In fact, a huge amount of sites out there use references like "...

I don't understand....

Ok looking back at old posts and all, I noticed the site was "redesigned" http://thezorklibrary.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=333 sometime in 2009 , I came back in late 2009 or so to find that. Being a user of the board and the site for several years, this came as a shock. The site had been down for...

Re: I AM OVERJOYED!!!!!!

LOL yes, I made him an account in LoZ, I know that with my help he can play too. I looked for age restrictions in the rules and saw nothing, and so far there really isn't anything that he shouldn't see. The monsters are funny looking, no blood, no adult content, it's all good. He can't really read y...

Re: I was thinking, The Zork Library Clan?

Another one of my characters wants to join the Zork Library clan. Please send me an invite soon! :D Edit: Hopefully I can give away the items to my kids who are in that clan too. I'm hoping I don't have to sort to posting an announcement so that people can take the leftover items. There are still 12...

Re: Zork Nemesis can't save

In the English Macintosh version, and as far as I know the Windows version too, it asks you to answer "yes" or "no" Many users (new world gamers for example) do not realize it meant press "y" for yes, and "n" for no. Since new world gamers are used to seeing buttons for "yes" "no" and "cancel" and t...
