Running ZZT under DOSBox ------------------------ ZZT works great in DOSBox. To automatically test worlds, we set up the following virtual DOS drives: C: -> ISO image containing ZZT runtime files D: -> Temporary directory containing TEST.ZZT (created by KevEdit) DOSBox starts up, and mounts those virtual drives. It runs skip.com, a simple program that injects [K] [C] [ENTER] into the keyboard buffer, conveniently skipping over the ZZT intro crap. It then copies all the ZZT stuff to the temporary D: drive, and runs ZZT with the test world. When ZZT exits, DOSBox runs EXIT, terminating the emulator. Painless! :) I was hoping to have DOSBox run ZZT directly from the ISO image, but ZZT seems to have trouble running worlds from the commandline that are not in its current directory. (Note: zzt.exe and zzt.dat are in the public domain. I wrote skip.com, and that is in the public domain also. Have fun with that.) -- kvance 2005
