Re: Zork News from ActiVision

It sounds interesting, I think Dr. Paul probably has the jist of it though.  I'd like to see a new masterpiece collection w/ everything in it.  Including the original pamplets and maps.  Thats what I though was the coolest thing about back when I got my first game (at about 13), was the whole enviro...

Re: Not as pissed as before, but still really piss

If you go to the top to the first msg it relates to a post on another site dated May 13th from Activision, so who knows anymore.

Re: Best Zork game...

Though I agree that Nemesis was not the truest 'Zork' type game, I think most of the laurals (sp?) go to it because it was the most well laid out graphically and was a step up to the current (Myst) level of graphical games, as well as the whole 'look-and-feel' was  a well written game, though I hone...

Re: RAAAAH! REALLY, REALLY pissed.

Actualy I remember reading somewhere, from one of the 'Implementors' that the enchanter series was supposed to be  Zork IV,V,VI in that they are in their own little timeframe in the G.U.E. that no other games encroach on.  (Not like this really matters, just thought I'd post it).

Re: Zork VI

Re: Return won't run...

Just remembered this, the problem I had was with my cd drive.

Check your read.me files, but I remember having to go to the Control Panel>System settings and shut off the read ahead ability on my cdrom.  This cured the problem.

Give it a try.

Re: Return won't run...

Honestly, I would suggest consulting the Win Help system on running DOS games and see what it says.  Half of the windows artitecture is dedicated to back-compatability.

Re: Return won't run...

JDS - try doing what basse said, but I don't think you have to reboot, just go to Command Prompt and cd \RTZ\RTZ.bat (I think thats the file - figure it out) and that should help. Basse - right click on the icon and set compatability mode to '98 - or do the command prompt thing (try the compatabilit...
