Re: 198? - A cyberpunk ACT text adventure Release thread & Download!

It would probably be better to use the sub device (or similar) and supply this with the adventure, so that it can be easily configured for sub-directories etc... Could the home extension be used?

Re: Dead Z88 - can it be resurrected?

The whine is generally that the Z88 needs a hard reset - open the cart slot cover and press the reset button on the left hand side.

Then close the slot cover and the screen should start up ....
