Re: Zork Grand Inquisitor Freezes during Jail Escape

Since I don't have Zork Grand Inquisitor installed in Windows right now, I got my ZGI DVD files into ZEngine on my Linux computer and ran it there. I found a collection of save files at http://www.nicouzouf.com/en/public/download.php?jeu=zorkgrandinquisitor&dl=all . I downloaded that and found that ...

Re: Zork Grand Inquisitor Freezes during Jail Escape

Zork.dir is included with the WIN_ZGI_GOG_2013_03_20.zip that you extract into the folder where you installed ZGI. The support for the DVD version has improved since that was last updated. I haven't played all the way through ZGI with ZEngine yet, but it might work.

Re: Zork I Illustrated

That was a lot of fun to watch! Thanks for sharing this with us! I remember thinking a lot of the same things when I first played this game. Is the person drawing the same person that's playing? The person drawing seems to have a good understanding of the layout of the game.

Is a part II coming?

Re: Zork Grand Inquisitor Freezes during Jail Escape

Hi. I haven't heard of this problem before. Try recopying the files from the DVD, just in case one didn't copy correctly. If that doesn't work, I recommend trying ZEngine to run the game. You can find instructions on running ZEngine with the DVD version of the game at https://github.com/Marisa-Chan/...

New game "Serena" references Zork

The new horror-adventure "Serena" features a couple of references to Zork. I took a couple of screenshots of the books in the book case. Notice Encyclopedia Frobozzica Volume VI and VII on the left in the screenshot below. http://www.thezorklibrary.com/forum/download/file.php?mode=view&id=17&sid=588...

Some People at Activision Still Remember Zork

I recently learned that yet again, Call of Duty has a reference to Zork. Not quite as good as last time where you could actually play Zork I, but there's a mention of "Zork.exe" in a list of files that your character downloads in Call of Duty: Ghosts. See this video of someone playing the game. You'...

Re: Zork Podcasts

I found another podcast featuring Zork.
Retroist: Episode #94

Here's one in German. I can't say how relevant it is because I don't know German.

Re: Return To Zork Different Endings/Versions?

I came across a post on the Vogons forum about someone who tracked down a ReelMagic board and the ReelMagic version of Return to Zork. You can find it at http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=37363&p=328920 . I also came across some YouTube clips that I think are from this version of the game. https...
