Re: The QUILL

Oh, wow. That's great. I knew you guys were trying to restore Sausages, but everything went quiet and I thought you must have given up. That's another one to add to the (very long) "must play" list.

Re: Adventure Games and Solutions, Help needed !

diamonds are forever Ha, ha. Sounds like a good title for a James Bond movie. I've been doing a lot of Oric updates for CASA recently. I've added some new games, lots of updates, some new maps and solutions and a lot of screen grabs. They haven't all been published yet. I've been concentrating on t...

Re: Old tapes found 2 (I'm back !)

Thanks for that. I downloaded it and noticed that the programs being CLOADed in part 1 were named differently to what's on the tap, but...IT WORKED! Bravo. Thanks for going to the trouble. I appreciate it.

Re: The QUILL

Okay. The challenge is on! I'm tied up with other projects for the next 2 months or so, but I'll look into memory requirements and see what is feasible. Obviously, the adventures with smaller memory requirements will have a better chance of being ported. Post your wish list here. I think home-brew g...

Re: Translation of french games?

I think this is a great idea. I'm happy to help out with any BASIC text adventures, but not for at least two months, due to other projects. I do not read French, but I have translated a number of French adventures on other platforms in the past with the help of Google Translate and various online Fr...

Re: Adventure Games and Solutions, Help needed !

I'm happy to help with the adventure games and solutions. I've spent the last few weeks trying to track down all the Oric text adventures. There's still a lot missing in action. I have also been updating all the entries on CASA . There are now 100 Oric adventures listed and there'll be a few more wh...

Re: The QUILL

Hi guys and gals, I'm really interested in this topic, as I'm an adventure historian. I am trying to find and preserve all text adventures from the classic period. I just downloaded The Quill for Oric a few days ago and everything seems to work fine. Unfortunately, it is quite an old version (A04). ...

Re: Old tapes found 2 (I'm back !)

Hi guys and gals, I know this is a really old thread, but I was wanting to download 'Starship to Hell'. This is a text adventure written by W R Halpin and published by Chymesoft in 1984. Unfortunately, the link to Musepat's humongous file no longer works. Does anyone know if it's been moved to anoth...
