Okay so I hope this is the right place to put this. But onto the point.
Anyway a long time ago my father showed me a game he used to play called Adventure. Some right remember this command prompt game as well as it's opening words "YOU ARE STANDING AT THE END OF A ROAD BEFORE A SMALL BRICK BUILDING..."
Well awhile back I actually found what I believe to be was the source code for the game. If I remember right they had found Will Crowther's source on an older server.
The files can be found here:
Now here's the problem. I have no clue how to interpret these files. I was hoping to convert this to C using f2C, but I don't even know where to start. I believe the that some of these files are later versions of others, but have no clue what to do with what.
For instance, I believe "advf4.77-03-31" contains the final version of the game while "advdat.77-03-31" contains all the strings to the game. But that's about as far as I can get. I believe I got f2c installed properly on my Centos machine, but again, I have no clue how to prepare these files for use, or even if they can be converted because I don't understand Fortran well enough.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and please don't just link me to a website unless it's really good. I can Google all I want for tutorials, but some a personal touch can offer a lot more understand then a generic web site tutorial
