I have this port of the v1 C-64 ZIP (Zork Implementation Program) from "Zork I" that I have working on the VIC-20 (had to whack the status line), and some versions of PETs (due to zero page usage). It works under VICE, but I don't want to release it until I personally witness it work on the real hardware. I'll probably have to release it as a self-patching executable (i.e., you stick a real copy of "Zork I" for the C-64 in a 1541 (or 4040) drive and running the program will patch the disk to work with the PET (don't worry about the minor 1541/4040 differences; the game disk is write-protected for use; you save on a seperate floppy). > Hasn't anyone else here thought it would be cool to host Secret > Weapons of Commodore on a real, live 900, btw? :-))))) That'd be cool. I would love to have a CBM 900, but I haven't even seen a live one, let alone had the chance to buy one. I remember back in the day that I was disappointed that it used a Z-8000 rather than my favorite 68000. -ethan -- Visit "The Seventh Continent" http://penguincentral.com/penguincentral.html Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
