With IFcomp starting soon, I thought about the confusion there was last year regarding how to play ADRIFT 5 games.

Therefore I have created a little pdf-document, which explains how to run ADRIFT 5 games on Windows and Android.

If you think something is missing or is wrong, or you would like to contribute, let me know. I am using Open Office but it should be possible to convert to other formats.

If there are no comments, I plan to upload it as it is to intfiction.org, when IFcomp begins.

It may be advisable to mention that the .blorb filetype is also used by other systems too. eg. Inform

Good point R2T1. I have now updated the document in the first post so that it mentions that other systems can use the .blorb extension too. In addition, I added a footnote with a little more info.

IIRC, Inform uses .zblorb or .gblorb. It probably would have helped if Campbell had used the extension .ablorb.
