I pulled down the Linux version of it, playing around with it now. First
thing I notice, is that it requires CAPS LOCK and it also seems to need an
extra <CR> for it to acknowledge some commands. For example, HELP <CR> just
sits there, doing nothing. A second <CR> will cause it to print the HELP
messages. Same for ATTACK, etc.

it's really hard these days to find testers willing to play text
adventures,or text based versions of trek. :(
Right now I have two such games in desperate need of testers (one moreso
than the other),they can all be downloaded from
trek7 is a classic 70's game originally on PDP then ported to vax, and now
available for PC, vax, and linux.
but the one I really need tested and bugs found is the classic game "The
New Castle"which is available from the same place for PC, MAC, and linux
(sorry no vax version exists any more).
Although I'd really love it if someone could make trek7 network playable
on pc, mac or linux again (linux is probably the most likely there) or even
vax. and to me was, is and always will be the best trek game ever made
(yes, far superior to ntrek).
I know the ancient fortran (and ocr issues) cause major headaches tho....

I know this is slightly off topic, but I'm wondering if anyone knows of,
or is a member of, any mailing lists that are related to computer games,
preferably older, but with the same quality as this list.
Thanks for your time and happy hacking.
