exult - an engine for running Ultima VII
is an engine built for running Ultima VII. It started its life as a
map-browser for Ultima VII and has evolved from there, thanks to the open
source-model and contributions of time and code from many people.
You cannot use Exult
without game data files. At present, the only
finished games are Origin's Ultima VII: The Black Gate and Ultima VII, Part 2:
The Serpent Isle. In any case, both Ultima VII's are some of the best computer
Role-Playing-Games made to date. Check your local computer dealer's bargain
bin or an online auction site. Ultima VII can still be purchased for only a
few dollars. Run out and buy it!
There is a world editor available to create your own games: Exult Studio. Check
homepage (URL below) for more information.
