Sherlock: Riddle of Crown Jewels (Infocom) - Where?

Post by blakespot » Thu Nov 15, 2007 8:44 pm

I am looking for Sherlock: Riddle of the Crown Jewels from Incofom.

http://www.richardlowe.com/vax-dungeon/ ... rlock.html

I see it for sale on eBay for C64 and the like, but what I want is a .z* file that I can run on a modern Z-machine interpreter. How can I come by this? Thanks.

You might want to try asking this at

I don't know if there's a suitable topic for this enquiry, or whether they have rules about asking for things like this, but someone there will be able to point you in the right direction.

Try here. All orders now come with a free copy of Winfrotz, in order to play the games in a modern computer.

Edit: Damn! I just checked. They are out of stock. Well, I think it's quite obvious, really: download them from the intertron.

And of course there's no reason why you can't buy the C64 version for all the neat stuff in the pack :D

If you have a C64 to run it on, or a way to get the disk contents onto your PC, you can always convert the C64 data into a z-code game file.

Can I? How would I do that?

Thanks.
