Anyway, I don't want to be a burden, just asking. THx for the Frotz port to Fvek and twobob.

Hello max.. glad to see another IF fan in the kindle community..

Kindles and IF seem to be made for each other.. text only.. no fiddling with graphics and colour.. and in the case of the paperwhite, sound too..

There are now kindle ports of interpreters for z-machine, glulx and tads games..

As twobob mentioned.. there's a single kual button incorporating all the three.. see: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...1&postcount=48

Enjoy..!

Yes.. Emily Short is one of the big names.. You played her Galatea..?

Exclamation Restoring error?

(I'm using a paperwhite)
When I start a game, everything works great.
I can save, but when I try restore, it starts printing weird things like
Spoiler:
[stopped: success]
[Procedural rulebook]
[Turn sequence rulebook]
[parse command rule]
[before reading command rulebook]
for Reading a command rulebook
[before Constructing the status line rulebook]
(Insert pages of garbage specific to the command and game).
(insert the text I'm supposed to see).
> [before Constructing the status line rulebook]
[after Constructing the status line rulebook]

and on and on, pages of it.
It still prints the text from the game, but it's mixed in with the rest.
Even the quit command prints nearly a page of text, and the "Are you sure you want to quit?" is 3/4 of the way down.

Sounds like you've somehow managed to turn on diagnostic information, but I'm afraid I don't know how that's happened.

That's what I'd guessed, but using the debug options, I can't turn it off.
