Kongregate shutting down huge parts of website on July 22

I imagine that most ZZT'ers also are fond of Flash games, the ones we all loved to sneak a play at in class when teacher's back was turned. One of the biggest websites for them, sadly, is cutting massive parts of their website in a couple weeks. That includes nearly all of the chats for a particular...

Yeah, repairs are in progress. PHP's original MySQL library finally transitioned from deprecated to removed, which means a bunch of site code needs to be updated.
Ohhh thank goodness. I was afraid The Day had finally come. Glad to hear repairs are ongoing! :keen:

As far as I know, a PHP upgrade broke the entire codebase, so the rest of the site is down (as the forums could just be updated to a newer phpBB). You can find games on the Museum of ZZT.
Say it ain't so...it can't die just yet!

Re: ICANN sold .org control to private equity firm.

I guess my summary is that this may be bad for the internet as a whole, but I want to put it in perspective that this is not a world-ending event for zzt.org. Renewing out for ten years seems prudent, though. Even after ten years, my guess is that renewing zzt.org will still be affordable for me: e...

Re: ZUltimate locked?

It isn't deleted, and can be fully accessed with the proper credentials. I have a personal backup as well. A ZZT wiki is a good idea, but ZU needed to be razed. (Commodore, if you see this, you are somebody I trust with those credentials. Get in touch if you want access) What would the process be t...

Maynard's Shack link

Followed it out of random curiosity and it's been nuked by the author. Internet Archive has nothing except the front page, all links broken. Does anyone have a copy/archive of their own?

Re: What aren't you working on anymore?

My fanstory based on a drastically unappreciated game, "Wrath of Earth". It broke my heart to do it but it's taking everything I have just to keep "Nos Manere" going.

Re: Undertale

Stumbled across this gem at random a few months ago. Nearly killed my adoptive goatmom completely by accident and felt so horrible (once I realized what I'd almost done) I nearly quit playing on the spot. The fandom for this game is incredible, and it punishes you for being a mindless "murderhobo" i...

Re: fantasy-style language in earliest ZZT games

Personally I'd venture text-adventure games were a part of it, especially 'classical' horror/fantasy oriented ones.
