20 Years of ZZT

Just thought I might acknowledge that ZZT is 20 years old this month. It was released in October 1991. Also My first game that I uploaded was Death Cave 9 years ago, doesn't seem to be on here, I may upload the file. So I estimate that I have been using ZZT for 10 years. I have gone under the name W...

Thats odd, it is working here fine. How are you running it? You do die if you don't move for a little while, maybe your system is running it too fast? I am runnning it with DOSBox, which it runs too fast in, I must change that.

The code is very messy, it is especially hard considering I don't know pascal. Anyway, I have made it so you can change intial game values such as score gems and what not. You can also edit(as in, with notepad) the first map. Here is the updated .exe http://zzt.org/upload//Kroz.zip If anyone wants t...

I have been looking through the code and found that the maps are in the source code itself. So to edit a map the whole program needs to be recompiled. I haven't been able to get Turbo Pascal 5 to compile the code yet, I think it has some file dependencies which I don't know how to fix. Perhaps re-co...

You can try changing the output option in the config file to something else which I have found to work before. I have also edited the priority of it and the cpu cycles are set to max. Here is my config file # This is the configurationfile for DOSBox 0.72. # Lines starting with a # are commentlines. ...

Try increasing the cpu cycles of DosBox. You can do it by holding down control and tapping F12 I think. Or you can edit the DosBox config file to make it run at the best possible speed.

I only have one problem with windows 7 and dosbox, that is that it doesn't like to go full screen. The colours are all wrong. But I have only tested with intel gfx cards.

Edit: Never mind, I looked through the config file and set it to use opengl. Works great now.

This game is the most original I have seen for a while. I quite enjoyed it. I was supprised with the battles, I don't think I have seen anything like it in zzt before.

It is actually less resource hungry. It was designed to run on netbooks so that they could get rid of xp. I have been running the RC on my Asus 1000HA. I have found it boots faster than xp and runs quicker. I have even found that a P4 with 512Mb ram is good enough to run it well. There are some feat...
