GratedTopping Posted January 27, 2011 Share Posted January 27, 2011 (edited) For use in the "Win994a" emulator, here's my version of a big text-adventure game from the November 1987 issue of "Compute!". According to the info in the program, I finished everything sometime in 1988 and updated it in June 2000. In June 2009, I edited it further on the PC. I was just 13 at the time and I think I did quite well. I created my own LOAD program and, from that, you can play the game or read the story first. Also, I put the SOLUTION in a separate file. I don't know where I obtained the EFONT, but I like it and it surely makes it look more professional. The main program is a huge 75+ sector file. To fit on the TI -- even with 32k -- I had to place all the data in a separate file and then add commands to the program to load that data. I really like that I learned of how you can load a program from "DSK.diskname.filename" and the TI will search all disk drives for the program. I notice that I even made use of how to turn the prescan off; that wasn't done through a program that does that automatically. I even kept the save game/load game capability. <WHOOPS. Sorry. I guess I was totally wrong and there is no save/ load function. The game didn't have that originally anyway. I meant to implement it, but I guess I wasn't able to due to lack of memory space.> All of those things were in my original conversion (or from 2000). Any 2009 modifications were very minor and I didn't change much at that time. I guess for another modification, I could put the choice to see the solution into the LOAD program. This was the biggest translation of a game I did. It's been on the TI gameshelf website for a while and I never mentioned that here (I think). Hope someone likes it.
