Re: A Real Computer!

RTZ used to work on my computer, but I wasn't able to get it or Nemesis working recently.  Our old 486 is in the basement somewhere... maybe it still has a use??? :D

Re: tbzp.co.uk

Make sure to add your page to the list of Zork pages on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zork click Edit at the top, go down to the text window and scroll down to the External Links section, and add your site in the same syntax that is used for the other sites.  Then, click the "minor edit" ...

Re: rtz help!

Yeah, the sound is a real problem.  You probably want to try getting a program like VDMSound or DOSBox to get the sound working.  I got it to work once, but haven't been able to since.

Re: Zork on Wikipedia

I got a reply from Nino Ruffini.  He has stated that he doesn't want the encyclopedia put on Wikipedia, because then people would be able to modify it...

Re: Zork on Wikipedia

They've seen it and still aren't convinced.  I'm trying to get into contact with the creators, Nino Ruffini and John Holder.  I've sent them emails, but no reply so far. On another note, would I be able to copy the pictures in the Flathead Calendar, or any of the other images on the Zork Library sit...

Re: Zork on Wikipedia

Help!  The folks at Wikipedia keep deleting my Encyclopedia Frobozzica posts, stating that it is a copyright violation, even though I tell them it's from the PDF version and that it says "This document may be distributed freely."

Re: Zork on Wikipedia

What about using the title image from Encyclopedia Frobozzica, or using images from the various graphical Zork games?   Any copyright issues there?

Zork on Wikipedia

If anyone thinks there are any cop...
