This version of adventure is based on the RT-11 version by Bob Supnik. It is essentially a recoding of the FORTRAN-IV sources into RALF code. The RALF code has been optimized to fit into 32K. Also, many modifications were made to the code to increase execution speed. Because it is based on the RT-11 version of ADVENTURE, the following features of the FORTRAN-10 version are not supported: 1) MAGIC mode was removed 2) The SUSPEND and HOURS commands were deleted The program requires a secondary storage device with at least 250 blocks of free space for working storage. Included with the sources are batch stream files for compiling and loading the program. COMPILATION: .SUBMIT COMPILE LOADING: .SUBMIT LOAD (this creates a load map - LOAD.LS) EXECUTION: .R FRTS *ADVENT.ld (the ".LD" is optional) *dev:TEXT.TX/1 (where "dev" is the device where "TEXT.TX" resides.) *dev1:DATA/2< (the secondary text storage file) *$ (altmode or escape) execution proceeds. When started, the program will take approximately two to three minutes to set up its data base (DATA). Initialization and execution can be optimized by placing the data file (DATA) on a different device from the text file (TEXT.TX). Also, it is more efficient to have the load module (ADVENT.LD) on a different device than the data file (DATA). For a two-drive DECtape system, for example, put ADVENT.LD and TEXT.TX on SYS:, have DATA written on DTA1:. i.e. .R FRTS *ADVENT *TEXT.TX/1 *DATA/2< *$ (Execution). To run the program, only the files ADVENT.LD and TEXT.TX need to be copied from the distribution tape. These are the load module and the text file. The rest of the files are sources. Good luck and happy adventuring!
