GpFrotz, a frotz port for

I needed a GP32 version of text IO and I ported
dumb frotz as a test for it.
If anyone else finds it useful, feel free to
use it, but dont complain about the release.
The source is included, it compiles
perfectly using mrmirkos SDK.
I made this for myself so that I could play
HHGTTG on the go, it works for many other z machine games
graphics and sound
are happily ignored. As is much of the menu stuff which does not provide echoing
while in menus.
What is in there:
A port of Dumb Frotz with some added
features like a status line for score and so on that works for most games.
for everything using mrmirko SDK is included for anyone that does not like this
I also added a text file reader which uses word indexing to give fast
updates and line wrapping.
The interpreter keeps track of text ammount and
if it is about to scroll past the page, a press any key notice is given.
text file reader is intended for reading invisiclues or walkthroughs WHILE playing
So if you get stuck, just press "start" and read invisiclues
or walkthrough to know how to continue.
Put Z-machine game
files in GPMM\FROTZ
Put invisiclue textfiles or textfile walkthroughs in GPMM\DOCS
for entering text:
- shift e for enter
- backspase for erasing one char
- No other special features such as arrowkeys or history have been implemented
- When saving or loading ingame, use chatboard to enter file names.
in file browser or text file viewer:
- Joystick to go up and down (in file
viewer it is slightly too fast)
- L and R for page up and down when viewing
text files for speedy browsing.
Menus do not echo to screen
i.e. if the menu says press p to go up, if you press p and then enter (shift e)
the menu actually goes up although nothing happens on screen.
an additional enter is needed when the computer writes press any key, other times
only the key is necessary.
Probably many things that I have not tested since
the only game I have tested is HHGTTG
Thats All Folks!
