Lord of Midnight – Full game stats

Thursday, April 7th, 2011 by Mr.Mouse

victory.pngYesterday I completed a game of Lords of Midnight, using my Lomwrapper. For the second time in my history, and 20 years since the first. Check here for the charts that I created using the logs from Lomwrapper after my win.

Lords of Midnight Wrapper

Sunday, March 20th, 2011 by Mr.Mouse

lomwrapper0_1.jpgFor nostalgic reasons I created the first version of a Lords of Midnight wrapper for CCS64. The Commodore 64 version of the classic and utterly bold and utterly invigorated Lords of Midnight by Mike Singleton (1984) runs well on the CCS64 v3.8 emulator. With my wrapper you can keep track of what is going on. When I completed the game as a teenager, I did not have these fancy minimaps and stats. I had to keep track of what was going on in a notebook. This tool should help you get the most out of the brilliant game. To use, get a copy of the game on a D64 file (to run in CCS64). When the game runs in CCS64, start the Lords of Midnight Wrapper.Thanks also to the Icemark.

Working on MexCom 4.5

163716_170788896289752_143458469022795_320523_7484623_n.jpgJust a little post to let you know I’ve been working on MultiEx Commander 4.5. I plan to release it in January 2011, hopefully. As a teaser, you can click on the screenshot that will show what it can look like at the moment. Changes? Well, there’s a login screen, EasyMod is implemented with MexScript, there a Script window, that will also allow you to use Aluigi’s QuickBMS to open archives, and some other stuff you’ll find out soon.

Zork Nemesis/Grand Inquisitor UNTGZ

Friday, June 12th, 2009 by Mr.Mouse

untitled.JPGBy request, I have created UnTGZ, a tool that will convert Zork Nemesis‘ *.TGA art files to *.BMP. Basically, it was a matter of reverse engineering the executable to see that Apple’s LZSS code was used to compress and decompress these *.TGA files. Zork’s TGA files are basically 16-bit bitmaps (LZSS compressed) with RGB codes in the bitmap data. Download UnTGZ to convert *.TGA files to windows bitmap.
The tool: UnTGZ 0.02

TRE Archiver 1.0.4

Friday, March 13th, 2009 by Mr.Mouse

By request I’ve edited some old source code of TRE Archiver to not require MexCom registration. So, basically this is the same as 1.0.3, but now without the need to have a registered copy of MexCom. Don’t complain that it won’t open any new TRE types. The original tool was from 2003, it’s now 6 years later. I won’t support it any further.

TRE Archiver 1.0.4

Simple Monopoly GCF Extractor

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008 by Zench

TikGames' Monopoly LogoZench created a simple extractor for the GCF format used by TikGames’ Monopoly. Currently the extractor is command line only; a MexCom plugin to extract and repack the format is planned for the future, if support is desired. Usage should be self-explanatory, but if not, ask at the forum. The discussion can be found here, and the tool can be downloaded at this URL.
