This adventure was published as a type-in BASIC program for the TI99/4A by Aristide Torrelli (MCmicrocomputer 33, sept. 1984, title "La piramide di Iunnuh", http://www.digitanto.it/mc-online/PDF/Articoli/033_150_154_0.pdf)

 and then ported to the spectrum and many other: http://davbucci.chez-alice.fr/index.php?argument=varie/innuh/innuh.inc&language=English

Paradoxically, today it is possible to play the adventure in English on many platforms but not on the ti-99.

I can translate the text into English, but I can't program or fix bugs. If anyone cares, I can provide a txt file of the listing.

Any game not available to us would be valuable. This game is not in gamebase and I would like to see the txt listing. 8)

@Elia Spallanzani fdt   perhaps the translations of the other systems at this link might help you? https://github.com/DarwinNE/innuhs_pyramid/releases

could help you to translate in English the TI99 version, probably you can do it easily, there are also the sources.

 

it is also the dedicated page on ti99iuc: https://www.ti99iuc.it/web/index.php?pageid=database_cerca&archivioid=18

maybe it is possible to use the c source to compile directly the improved version in english for ti99?

Yes, I can translate it, but since there is an improved version of the game in c, with English text, maybe it was better to compile that version for ti99: but I don't know how to compile it.

 

P.s. tomorrow I will translate the text of the version into extended basic, if only for historical reasons.

I did a quick google translation of the Italian text into English. See the attached file. You should be able to enter the text of the game directly into extended basic as this was how the original program was created. Change the Italian into English and run. You will still need to translate the Italian tokens into English. These are in lines 523 thru 535. The rest of the game looks pretty playable as is. Though, I haven't tested it.

thanks mdilling.

 

I am attaching the Italian listing after correcting some errors: it is possible to solve the adventure but the routine that calculates the points does not work. Furthermore, the game demands the article between verb and object, otherwise it doesn't work.

 

I also enclose a first attempt at an English translation, which, however, I cannot copy to classic 99 because it always gives me the error "unmatched quotes".

Anyone familiar with this game? I need some beta testers...

 

This is the English version in EA5 format and was built from the C version.  Requirements:

 

TI/99-4A with Editor/Assembler Cartridge

32k RAM

Disk drive

 

You will need to use option 5 in the Editor/Assembler to run the file "INNUHTI".

 

In game, if you type and don't see any text, press the "Alpha Lock" key.

 

Any feedback appreciated.

Not a bug.  Looks like that is how the game works.  It happens in the XB listing above in post #12, as well as in the original C version by Davide Bucci.

 

Take the torch or lose it!

New versions:

 

40 column English

80 column English

40 column Italian

80 column Italian

 

The 80 column version requires 80 column capable hardware (F18A).

 

Each is in a zip file.  You will have to use option 5 to load one of:

 

INUTIEN40

INUTIEN80

INUTIIT40

INUTIIT80

 

Tested and seems to work in classic 99... Not tested on real hardware.
