Thanks mz-80a. You have aided me.
No problem. If you make any games or other interesting software (including your text adventure) and would like to see them released on cassette (and digital) then let me know, we (Sharpworks) are always looking for new games etc

Re: Making a basic text adventure.

I have uploaded the MZ-80K version of Haunted House here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1XMoVPT8YmIKWXGAXFLs_2ABCXnj3As4w?usp=sharing Perhaps if you have a look through this it might help you with the SP-5025 problems. I'm not familiar enough with that particular BASIC to give you an answer...

Yeah, it was fun getting rid of 92 separate spam posts this morning ;) I think the admin activation is a good thing overall.

Re: Making a basic text adventure.

Update on evil star. There will not be an inventory due to SP-5025 not allowing me to compare string variables to strings. There will be music. At the end, I will credit anybody who's helped me along the way. That's strange that you can't do that. There are plenty of text adventures for the MZ-80K,...

Re: Making a basic text adventure.

Awesome! Sounds great. For a long time I've been thinking of making an adventure game creation system for the MZ-80 It's still on my list of things to do. If yours doesn't take up too much memory you could compile it for a bit more speed. Hope to play it sometime soon! How far through it are you, or...

Text adventures

Has anyone ever actually completed any of the usual text adventures on the MZ? They all seem to be pretty difficult! Might be nice to do a walkthrough some day.

Re: Copying software from site onto cassette

Hi, welcome! Glad you got the software working in the end. The method I use is to use one of those cassette adapters you used to get for car stereos. Plug the jack into the laptop (with volume at 50%) and place the tape in the MZ-80A. Works very successfully. The only downside is you have to remove ...

Re: Pascal SP-4015 "C"

If a comment field in the file buffer isn't cleared down properly when you next save a file then it'll just be saved along with the current file. Could be a remnant of something else that was in memory before this file was saved.
