fizmo-console - bare-bone console implementation of the fizmo Z-Maschine
[ options ] storyfile
is a frontend for the fizmo Z-Machine
pcodes”—which uses only the
basic console output and input methods. It will run most of the interactive
fiction games aka text adventures written by Infocom or other games which are
based on the Z-Machine—currently all versions except version 6 are
- -h, --help
- Show help message and exit.
- -ll, --line-length
- Will set the line length for the current screen. This will
enable word-wrapping using the defined screen size.
- -dh, --disable-hyphenation
- Disable word hyphenation. Useful for languages other than
the supported ones.
- -ai, --autosave-inputfile
- Restore game from this file.
- -ao, --autosave-outputfile
- Save to this file after single command.
