I have an enhanced version pack of Grand Inquisitor and Nemesis, Windows 98 DVD-ROM.

I have been reading 6 or 7 of the lists all you wonderful folks have made RE- older games that work on Win.7, and never are any ZORK games listed. What's my luck of being able to play them???????

All the references for playing Zork on modern operating systems indicate you will need DosBox or ScummVM or some other emulator.

I found this website...

That's interesting, Drac. They list the GOG version of Zork Grand Inquisitor as needing something called Zengine but I have that version and I didn't need anything else to play ZGI. Do you know anything about this? Does it make playing smoother? Update the graphics to this century? grin

Yeah, I saw that for the GOG version of ZGI. I have never even heard of it!

I went to the Zork Library, and AAAAGGGHH.I think I should just give it all up and hire someone to load a couple dozen (maybe more) games. Ever since recovering from my heart attack last fall my brain gets mushey-er and mushey-er. I can't even remember my Son and my sister's phone numbers. I have a pad to fill the times I take all my medics and little notes pasted all over the house reminding me of the importent things.

If it wasn't for the 'puter and Gameboomers, and a visit to the Casino now and then,I'd be totally bonkers with just the TV to watch.
