Feckfull Transcripts

Since @mathbrush expressed interest in these on “The list of the longest games ever”, and @johnnywz00 waved his right to object by already making some fragments accessible for all eyes, here’s the full batch:

RovarssonFecklessScriptsOne.txt (823.6 KB)
RovarssonFecklessScriptsTwo.txt (720.9 KB)
RovarssonFecklessScriptsThree.txt (937.2 KB)
RovarssonFecklessScriptsFour.txt (932.4 KB)
RovarssonFecklessScriptsFive.txt (1.1 MB)

(I had to squeeze everything into 5 text-files because apparently that’s the Forum limit. Originally there were 35, ranging in size from 84 to 197 kB.)

Wow… the fact that the transcript and commentary on one game adds to nearly 5mb of text really speaks to the enormous size of the game.

It is big… the transcript size would be considerably smaller if the player used TERSE mode, because a huge proportion of the text is the reprinting of room descs as the player travels around…
Maybe even half as big, or less…

WOW That’s insane :eyes:

For instance, the readthrough transcript – which I can’t find right now, and maybe deleted – plays in TERSE mode, and I believe the full playthrough is less than 2MB of text… but in that game there is a minimum of wandering around trying things that don’t work before getting the solutions…
