    NDS GLK POGO Released

    News/release from Sasq:

    These are some text adventure interpreters I have ported to Nintendo DS; It was accomplished by first porting GLK (a library for handling Interactive Fiction) and then compiling GLK-versions of the compilers.

    - Frotz
    Plays new and old (Infocom) zcode format adventures. Currently the only
    interpreter confirmed to handle load/save correctly.
    Includes games like Zork, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy etc

    - Level9
    Plays old level9 adventures.
    Includes Knight Orc, Snowball etc

    - Magnetic
    Plays Magnetic Scrolls adventures. Graphics are not handled correctly at the moment so avoid copying over the GFX-files. Includes The Pawn, Guild of Theives etc

    - Nitfol
    Another interpreter for zcode. Is actually more modern then FROTZ, but the GLK-versions has problems with the titlebar & fixed width window.


    This is the first release and contains a few known and unknown bugs.
    I will release a fixed v1.1 after feedback.

    I've tested it with a few Level 9 and Magnetic Scrolls Adventures. It works fine and, in the case of Level 9, even displays the graphics - though the palette seems to be garbled. Three cheers go to SASQ!
    :thumbup:

    --edit--

    There are random crashes in all emulators, and text output is garbled in Frotz after saving.
