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.

Hi,

I had just jailbroke my PW2, and my firmware is still on 5.6.5. After the installation, frotz crashed almost immediately and I managed to see that it failed because curses wasn't initialized. The other IF interpreters such as glulxe and gargoyle seemed to crash with the same error message.

I then tried to start frotz via kterm, and this time the error message was "Error opening terminal: xterm." I saw that Frotz is compatible with PW1, could you let me know whether it is compatible with PW2 too please?

Check for some recent updates of those things -
At one point in the 5.6.x series of firmwares, some library versions where changed by Amazon.

Yeah, kterm was certainly updated to work with >=5.6.5, dunno about the others...


From the OP it sounds like it should be easy to compile.
If curses wasn't initialized it sounds like that was also updated on the Kindle, so you will need to do that^^.

Again -- did you make sure you are using the version of kterm compiled for fw5.6.x ???

You have to set the TERM environment variable correctly before starting frotz in the terminal. If I remember correctly this worked for me: export TERM=linux. (enter this command in kterm before starting frotz or put it in the frotz startup shell script).
