Yay! Zork!

Nice module. I've got it on my test server checking it out and will probably have it on my live server before the day's done.

3 things...
  • First, I found a spelling goof. On line 413 "ganed" should be "gained". (Don't you hate it when you miss the key while your typing? Smiley )
  • Second, a question. On line 162, there is a statement that reads "What in the name of six is a computer?" Is the "six" a typo or is that an allusion to something that I'm just not familiar with?
  • Third, a suggestion. I may have just been lucky, but the grue seemed rather easy to defeat. Would you consider beefing it up a bit?
Any way... great module! I like it! Why don't you just go ahead and put all of Zork in a forest module! Heh heh... just kidding. Smiley

being the inquistive person i am, i was curious about the origins of the word "zork" and some of the other references within the module. hence a little googling and a quick trip to wikipedia.

tis a very interesting read.

nice of ye to make a tribute to another text based game.

Ditto... the Commodore 64 was my first computer and where I was introduced to Zork and Basic programming. It was a year or so after I bought the Commodore before I was able to get the disk drive. Heh... once I got finished with a program... I enjoyed it for as long as possible before I had to shut off the machine.  Grin

Thanks for the compliments and concerns!  I will be fixing said typo later on tonight, and as for the "What in the name of Six..." referance, it refers to the guy who's server i play on, Sixf00t4.  As for the Grue being a bit easy, did you try it with a super characer?  It becomes a little harder, but if you'd like to beef it up a bit, feel free Smiley

I also had a c64, but not before ownign a Tandy 1000.  That thing even had a cartridge slot!  That was the pinnacle of gaming Tongue

At least back then, you never had to worry about having the latest video card so you could play that new game that just came out.

Nope it was a character I use to test my modules with... pretty hum drum little guy. Actually a bit weak.
