Reading the DoZ page (just another hour!) and noticed yet another stupid "no external utilities" rule. I learned my lesson the last time this happened, so I won't rant. I just wish; I wish, I wish someone would tell me WHY.

But I'm not going there. Really.

Here's my MZX plan. No MZXing rig. While I /could/ get out my laptop, hook up my keyboard and monitor to a KVM switch, and put the audio through line2, that's too much work. The plan is to use DOSEMU until the very end when I'm testing and gluing stuff together and I really need sound. Then I reboot to DOS mode.

Ah, glad I got that squared away.

MegaZeux is this DOS game creation system. It's an old thing based on ZZT. It runs in textmode, but you can edit the font to make graphics. Does digital sound and music, too. This is what I did before I learned C :)

and don't let that low-quality DoZ scare you off. I usually run them, and they're like CLOCKWORK. But I was permbanned from the main irc channel for a few months and thus couldn't start to organize.

All games mentioned as being "high quality" were made during DoZs run by me. :P

Whoa, I'm out of the MZX loop. I don't even know what MegaZeuxAK or Super MZX is.
