Adventure Game News for 30 Mar 07

Z-machine Preservation Project 0.92_02

The latest version of Z-machine Preservation Project fixes a minor display bug. From Wei-Ju Wu's announcement, "Fredrik Ramsberg reported a minor display issue that occurred when the game does not print an input prompt, which resulted in the cursor not being displayed until a key was typed. For users running ZMPP in applet mode, I have signed the jar file with a new certificate, because the old one had expired a few days ago."

New IF Interpreter for PalmOS

Jeremy Bernstein has announced CellarDoor, an IF interpreter for PalmOS. It handles z-code and Glulx games, both in their raw format and wrapped inside a Blorb file. To use CellarDoor you'll need a device running PalmOS 4 or later, a hi-res screen, and an expansion card. For very large games such as City of Secrets you may need dynamic memory extension such as UDMH.
