Not sure if this is in the right forum.
I’m having trouble getting the blorb files to work when playing some of the infocom games with graphics and sounds like lurking horror and beyond zork.
Gargoyle doesn’t seem to read the .dat files from the infocom compilation discs so I found the old infocom games in z3, z4, z6, etc format. I also found .blb files on the if-archive for the games with graphics and sounds but I can’t get them to work. I put the in the corresponding folders like the z3 and blb for lurking horror both in the same folder, but I can’t get the sound to play.
Beyond zork won’t play at all since the graphics won’t load.
I am using the windows version of gargoyle. Sound and graphics are enabled.
Anyone know how to get them to work?
I read that it is possible to insert the story file into the blb file. How would I go about doing that? Would it help? Is there anyway to open the blorb file and look at it or edit it?
Thanks for any help.
***edit: I guess it does play .dat files. I just had to configure it to. Still doesn’t play with sound or graphics though.
