Re: Text Adventure Creator Program - was there one?

I tried to use Lantern but it doesn’t work on a 64 bit machine nor in XP under VirtualBox.

On top of that it’s closed source so there’s no way to help.

That’s it for me.

Re: Atari Joystick Adapter Build. Baby Step by Baby Step.

Thanks for your kind answer!

I have a double digital joystick by Altai, and as you said it’s just some transistors and resistors: https://archive.worldofdragon.org/index ... ck_Adapter

Re: Atari Joystick Adapter Build. Baby Step by Baby Step.

Hi All, Just seen this post. Having rekindled my interest in my Dragon and spending time in the loft, I came across a box of games. Inside the box is a cassette for an Atari type joystick adapter from back in the day called a 'Dragon Tamer' (I'm assuming this is old news). It wasn't mine originally...

Re: Text Adventure Creator Program - was there one?

The thing is, that it is kind of redundant, when you could just write it like this: 440 IF OL(J)=CP THEN PRINT OJ$(J) 450 NEXT J That is, if the content of OL(J) equals CP, then print the content of OJ$(J). No need for the more complicated "if not equal go to 460 else go to 450 and print the value".

Re: Capture the Dragon

You have a lot of fun ahead of you!

Jokes aside, I think it's going to be great to have the schematics on Electronic Design Automation program. From there it would be easier to order replacement boards or design improved boards.

So, kudos to you, and keep up the great work!

Re: Text Adventure Creator Program - was there one?

Thanks robcfg. I am definitely at the level where I need a program to help me to write a text adventure, and even then I have problems! The Dragon seems to have quite a decent amount of text adventures, which is why I thought maybe it may have something like Graphic Adventure Creator. Choosing out ...

Re: Text Adventure Creator Program - was there one?

If there’s interest, I can extract files from cas images and detokenise them. Hi robcfg, many thanks for the offer, but don't worry on my account. The results would be way beyond my ability! No problem, I just do these things for fun :mrgreen: Just let me know if I can be of help. Cheers, Rob

Re: Eprom incompatibility?

Well, you were on the right track there :mrgreen: I asked a friend of mine at the CPCWiki, and he pointed out, that A14 must be tied to +5 or Ground for it to select the high memory addresses or the low ones. It turns out that connecting A14 to Ground makes them work and I now have successfully tran...
