Infocom: the Master's Collection

Recommended Posts

Here are the Master's Collection Z3 DAT files converted back to the original Z3 format (non-TI).

 

XYZ_infocom-name.Z3

 

You need a Infocom Interpreter for Linux/MAC/Win/other to use them.  WinFrotz works well.

And may need to rename ".Z3" to ".DAT"

 

Some games have changes and protection removed.  This causes the $VERIFY command to fail.

Thanks for posting these files, very helpful!  As a proof of concept,  I modified the interpreter code that I'm working through (see dev thread) to use the native single Z3 file.  (well, I used Fred's TI99Dir program to "convert "the Z3 file into a TIFILES format Dis/Fix 128 file.)   I successfully played around with LGOP for 20 minutes.  RESTART worked as expected and $VERIFY returned "Ok".

Trying out this version of The Lurking Horror.  Login and password copy protection on the whiz-bang pc have been changed to something else.

872325412 and UHLERSOTH don't work.  If it's something simple, I'm missing it.  Any ideas, other than just playing the official version?

I have a disk of The Master's release that precedes the LTOI.  The "readme" file includes an ID/password, it's been a while but I think it is something like a login of TI with 99 or 994a as the password; I can check the disk this evening.

*** IMPORTANT!!!!! ***
 
This information is NECESSARY to play Lurking Horror:
 
When you first start the game, you will find a personal computer. What you must
do when you find it to type in the following:
 
TURN PC ON.
LOGIN 99.
PASSWORD TI.
 
This will get you past the only "Documentation-Critical" portion of the game.
 
Have fun!
 
"The Master"
 
There are now 11 <count 'em> NEW Infocom games ported to the TI.
 
These include:
 
   Leather Goddesses of Phobos  \
   Moonmist                      > these 3 require a Supercart to run
   Seastalker                   /
   Hollywood Hijinx
   Lurking Horror
   Ballyhoo
   Suspect
   Spellbreaker
   Wishbringer
   Stationfall
   Plundered Hearts
 
All brought to you by The Master...

DOH!  I tried TI for login and 99/4a among others but didn't hit on the right login as 99. :)

Thanks for the additional info.  The 99/4A Lives!
