Which game(s) have you tried?

(I know I don't have a paperwhite. Some games just don't work for no apparent reason.)

If I had to guess he didn't tweak the "if" path in the 3rd file I listed.

Or didn't have any "if"s at all.

Perhaps we could arrange a single default file just to prevent that kind of error.

Hey, let me see if I got it. To make it works on PW, do I have to copy the code and paste them on its related file? Or just make some adjustments?

Sorry for the question, I have no knowledge at all about programming.

Tks.

assuming the files are in EXACTLY the same place you could use mine.

remember to go get some IF files.

Alright. Now that I've read the code I think I got the idea.

The only changes that you've made are that you placed the folder "if" and "bin" inside extensions/frotz, right?

I'm just waiting for the Baf's website be available again to get Kterm and try Frotz.

Tks for the support!

Hey all, sorry for the late reply.

My if files I am using are in the .z5 format. I have tried Adventure Land and Freefall.

This is my frotz_shell.sh file:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

sleep 1

size=$(stty size)
set -- $size
h=$(expr $1 - 12)
shift
w=$(expr $@ - 4)

# edit this to point to where you store your IF story files (*.z5 etc)
export ZCODE_PATH=/mnt/us/if #<-- This is the folder I use.
# edit this to point to the dialog rc file
export DIALOGRC=/mnt/us/extensions/frotz/bin/.dialogrc #<-- Same here

FILE=$(dialog --stdout --title "Select Interactive Fiction File:" --fselect $ZCODE_PATH/ $h $w )

clear

if [ "$FILE" != "" ]; then
frotz -d "$FILE"
fi
I think I may go sort my folders the way you have them, twobob, and see if that helps!

EDIT: Hey I just tried it your way exactly and I am still getting an error that says story read error fatal read error, or something like that, it flashes pretty quickly.

Adventure Land is not working for me, but other games are.

, twobob, again!

I noticed that the inventory was saved. How can I get to the part where I was actually in when I saved the game? The inventory was restored but it was still at the beginning.

Figured it out

Hey all,

I know it's been awhile since I asked for help but I figured out the problem. I had not actually selected the game. I just highlighted it. Anyway it works fine now. Thanks for all the work getting this to work!

I'm looking forward to trying this!

I have both Lost Treasures of Infocom packages someplace at home. Does anybody have any idea if they are compatible or not? Just wondering.... Are they still copyrighted or have they passed into the public domain or abandonware?

abandon by now I would guess.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...3&postcount=23 is a decent guide on getting a few more too...

Could it be possible to port Git or any other of Glulx interpreters as well? I'm asking this because the most interresting and innovative of the recently available games are created in Glulx nowadays (to mention Emily Short only whom I"m a big fan of haha.. Btw I would recommend ANY of her games blindly especially Floatpoint. My all time favourites for Z-machine are Vespers and Varicella and these are also good as a starter for the IF newbie. Good starting point is the XYZZY Awards List in my opinion.
Anyway, I don't want to be a burden, just asking. THx for the Frotz port to Fvek and twobob.
