I tried running Zemu in RT11 v5.3 in SIMH.
It starts and asks for a game file. I entered ZORK1.DAT (from a zork1.zip
I once downloaded). The ZORK1.DAT is 180 blocks.
Zemu aborts after some 10 [ZALLOC] messages:
[ZALLOC]: Insufficient memory]
We didn't get memory for dynamic data. Aborting...
[INPEND: timer cancelled]
and then I am back at the RT-11 dot prompt.
Next I tried ".VBGEXE ZEMU".
After a [ZINIT], three [ZALLOC] and one more [ZINIT] line, Zemu prints
but then I return to the RT-11 prompt!
The last attempt was starting VBGEXE.SAV without a program on the
VBGEXE asks for a program, and I entered ZEMU.SAV.
Now soem 20+ [ZALLOC] lines are printed, the last lines are the
[GETSLN: returning 24. lines]
[GETSCL: returning 80. columns]
[GETSTP: returning terminal type 3.]
[PUTTXT: Address = 066736, count = 14. characters]
?MON-F-Trap to 4 101566
So, it is getting further. The "<" is actually a small arrow.
I guess these are control sequences for a VTxxx terminal? Or
as the zork1.zip file contained a zork1.dat, an .exe
and a Nnansi.com
(thus PC stuff).
Perhaps this ZORK.DAT file is not correct ...?
Or does the ZEMU.SAV need somethignfrom the RT-11 environment? Zane has
build Zemu in RT-11 V5.7, and my version is 5.3 ...
Henk, looking at this, I suspect your third attempt was working fine.
The problems there is probably because Zane built a version that didn't
have all the needed ingredients. I've uploaded a (hopefully) working set
of sources now. Let's see how that fares?
And Zane, I also did the other changes I mentioned in my last mail, so
maybe the now published sources built without any modifications?
