I've updated my source for the 3 people that actually play Frotz (myself included). Your save games will now, well, save!

I've also added a new Frotz game to add to your collection, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Its quite a fun game, it immediately takes a turn from the book with the characters you know, so people who have read the book and expect to run through the game already knowing what to do are in for a treat :)

Here's a hint to get you started: The book says Harvey lies down in front of the tractor, but when given the chance I recommend let Prosser do his thing...

Make that 4 people my friend! :laugh2:
I am having trouble with games under 1.1.4. the Zork series and HH Guide to the Galaxy work fine but any of my other Z4/Z5 games don't work. It complains about the width of the screen not being big enough. When I click OK, it just shows a menu bar at the top. Its used to work pre 1.1.4. Any ideas? Thanks for HH!

Welcome aboard, it was getting lonely!

Regarding the other games, HH is the only one outside of the Zork series that I've gotten to work with Frotz, and to be honest, its the only game that I've tried.

I did manage to get the other Zorks working before they were offered on Installer however.

Have you tried posting a query in the Issues forum on the Author's site?

http://code.google.com/p/iPhonefrotz/

Have a go with that, maybe we'll get an update out of it, and with a native 1.1.4 fix :)
