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

Haven't updated this in a good couple of years almost and the fact that I also don't post here a lot doesn't help haha. Anyways, I've decided at the pace it is to load from tape and how slow it is and how it ages and how annoying it is to type on an MZ-80K keyboard, it's time to abandon ship. Now that does not mean that I'm giving up on the game or the MZ scene as a whole. I'll still pop in here from time to time. However, I am now going to begin the process of porting the text adventure from SP5025 Basic to SmileBASIC (specifically v2.4) for use with the Petit Computer DSiWare application which is on DSis and 3DSes. It might be saddening news but I prefer my mechanical computer keyboard over the less-than-ideal MZ-80K keyboard and I think I can get some more fun running it on a 3DS over an old computer.

Hey dude, sorry to hear that! The MZ-80K keyboard is definitely unique. It's a shame you weren't using the MZ-80A because that does have a much more reasonable keyboard. Still look forward to seeing your work if you finish it.
