Oh come on, that's such a trivial error. XD But yeah, there is absolutely ZERO error checking on that part (or, for that matter, in the whole program! it just crashes if anything goes wrong). The only bit of validation that it does is check for the .BRD extension and add it if necessary (which I did...

Have fun banning me. If there's a big, red button, I think nuero should get to be the one to push it. He seemed the most pissed off by having to deal with me. I don't know what your deal is, nuero, but I'm sorry for irritating you so much. I hope you feel better after I'm gone, and everyone speaks w...

No, they aren't supposed to be indistinguishable. Pretty much the only systems that they've been indistinguishable on are my newest computers. Actually, I think the problem might be 2000/XP (would someone with Win98 please confirm this?). It just seems like since I've used NT 5.X (1999-present) I ha...

kindly check the attached LOVELETTER coming from me.

Oh, and yeah, I definitely fucked something up in the code (I forgot to remove the CHDIR command I used while testing because I'm an idiot -- or because it was like 4:30 in the morning...your pick). I uploaded an updated ZIP.

I got bored...

...so I wrote a QB program to display ZZT boards. HERE YOU GO: http://www.spectere.net/files/brdview.zip DOS application, should run on anything ZZT runs on. It gives you some board information before displaying it. Nothing fancy, I just needed something to do so yeah. It doesn't peer into .ZZT file...

That's a nice start! It seems to emulate ZZT very well, but I did notice that the speed is inconsistant with that of ZZT (Burger Joint is virtually impossible on the default speed on my Athlon XP 2200+-powered lappy) and the palette is a bit off (though that seems like a cmd.exe issue). The drum hit...

Yeah, FMV was all the rage, man. You can take a shitty game and make it sell if you put a few FMVs in it. For instance, the shooting game Mad Dog McCree was REALLY shitty but, holy shit, it had FMVs! AND THE CHARACTERS TALKED TO YOU! AND THE GUNS WENT BANG BANG! It was amazing...in a shitty kind of ...

I think I still have the shareware CD that I found it on. They had CDs back then??? Surprisingly yes. They actually held more than your average (read: affordable) hard drive, too. O_O But yeah, ZZT 3.2 (I think) came on it along with some of Greg Janson's earlier games (such as Robots of Gemrule, B...

i'm thinking i'll sadly have a negative attitude of you at first because No no, I know what you're thinking, Dos, but I've seriously been toying with ZZT since 1992. I think I still have the shareware CD that I found it on. I lurked here since the zzt.org days, I just really haven't had a desire to...

Howzit, all? I'm Spectere. I'm no stranger to ZZT, but this is only the second time I really made a move to mingle with the community (the first time was on this site before the reset). I used to post regularly at DMZX and now I'm just getting back into that again, so I'm sure some of you recognize ...
