I’ve released a new version of Frotz DC today. The text library has been rewritten from the ground up to support the Dreamcast’s 3D hardware, resulting in much faster and more responsive text input and output. It is also built against the latest version of KOS, offering better support for third-party keyboards.Other major changes include: A flashing cursor, a VMU reading / writing indicator, and more public domain games are included on the CD images. The file selector now also shows files with the “zip” extension. Please note that it cannot load compressed games, but some people seem to be naming z-machine files incorrectly.

Important note: Please delete frotz.ini or frotz-2.ini from your VMU before starting the new version of Frotz DC. An updated version will be created for you.
