    ===================
    Z2me is based in part on the Zplet ZCode interpreter by Matthew T. Russotto
    More information may be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/zplet/
    and the complete Zplet code can be downloaded from there as well.

    RandomAccessFile class from Firth Software

    AdventureCanvas from Paul Rowland
    from http://www.geocities.com/wirelessjava2002/adventure/

    FastText input from Markku Korsumäki , I ported it to J2ME
    from http://koti.mbnet.fi/korsu/ft.html

    Thanks to everyone on j2me.org who answered my questions as I am learning j2me.


    ===================
    Z2me is a ZCode interpreter for the J2ME environment.
    ZCode is the intermediate language that was designed
    and used by the original Infocom text adventure games.
    Using Z2me, it is possible to package and play a large
    variety of interactive fiction on your J2ME mobile device.

    Z2me is shipped with the public domain game "MiniZork". This
    is a demo version of the original Infocom Zork game. Refer to
    http://gpf.dcemu.co.uk for more information about Z2me.

    What's New
    ==========
    - Initial release

    Features
    ========
    - J2ME MIDP 1.0 or greater, should run on most devices that have enough memory.
    - Should run most Z-code programs of versions 3.
    - Text completion(Z9) - can be enabled/disabled through menu.
    - About screen through menu.
    - Save/Restore support for 1 save file.
    - key 1 , cycles through all of the directions (NORTH, SOUTH, etc)
    - key 0 , cycles through some commands I frequently use. ( ',' , AGAIN , WAIT, AND)
    - key * , cycles through the Z9 completed words
    - UP/DOWN arrow keys scroll the screen.
    - LEFT/RIGHT cycle through the last 10 commands.

    Also a different Z3 zcode format file can be added to the jar file(remove minizork.z3 first) and then update the "Zfile" user defined property with the name of the new Z3 file in the jad file. Remembering to watch the file size of the jar depending on your cellphone limitations.

    What's Missing
    ==============
    - Multiple save/restore slots


    Prerequisites
    =============
    - J2ME MIDP 1.0 capable device
    - Enough memory to load the jar, load the zcode and host the heap.
    The amount of memory will vary tremendously from one Z-Code game to the next.

    Getting Started
    ===============
    Install the JAR and JAD file to your mobile device.




    Disclaimer
    ==========
    Z2me is provided as-is. There is no warranty or guarantee that Z2me will work as advertised and
    that it won't cause your mobile device any harm.

    I hope you enjoy Z2me.

    Hi Troy,

    Not sure if you'll still be interested or not, anyway i tried Z2me on my Ngage original yesterday. Mostly everything worked fine apart from a couple of initial crashes when using Z9 completion. The crashes are always termed as "array index out of bounds" and seem to result from trying to type words that it does not understand but they are minor as you merely have to restart the program. If you are careful when using Z9 it doesn't crash.

    There is no hassle to get it to work on the Ngage. The easiest way to install a midlet is to copy it to an MMC then use a symbian file manager e.g. the excellent and free FExplorer to install it.

    Thanks Troy for a great way of keeping my mind occupied when i'm stuck somewhere boring.

    Was hacking around with this, fixing up some UI issues and making it work 'nicer' on my MIDP 2 phone. Would it be better me to just put them somewhere, or would you like to upload them on your site?
