Description [fr]

Un lecteur et éditeur de fictions interactives, par Kevin Boone.

grotz est un portage Gtk de Frotz (de Stefan Jokish, dans le Bottin), un lecteur et éditeur de fictions interactives supportant le format de jeux Z-machine (fichiers avec extension z3, z5, z6, z8).
Il permet donc de lire des fictions interractives conçues pour la plateformes Z-machine Inform.

Les ressources sont regroupées sur la fiche : "Ressources - Fiction interactive" et dans la subcat "Adventures - Fiction interactive - Contenu".


☑ Supports all the Z-code versions that Frotz supports, and adds support for zblorb archives
☑ Some support for Z-code version 6 graphics (see below)
☑ Uses variable-pitch fonts where possible, which most people find easier to read than console fonts
☑ Unicode support, both for keyboard and screen
☑ Mouse support, with games the implement it. You can move around by clicking the compass rose in Zork Zero, for example
☑ Transparent and true-colour text support, as defined in version 1.1 of the ZMachine specification
☑ Supports Amiga-style box graphics, for those games that require this feature (e.g., Beyond Zork)
☑ Transcript/scrollback viewer
☑ Rudimentary sound support
