Can not UNZIP *.taf files

Postby SweetWeeter » Sat Jun 11, 2011 7:02 pm

I played 2 Text games in 1987-88 (Colossal Cave, and a "generic". The generic had a built in pgm., that let you write your own games...I wrote 3 & debugged in about a month. I found your sight (OH BOY!) yesterday, & thought it'd be great to write again, but I downloaded a few games in ZIP (.taf) form and can not UNZIP to view or sample. Any help on unzipping the file would be awesome. thanks! SweetWeeter

What games are you talking about?
I can try unzip them for you and post it on my dropbox site.

If you have a .taf file, that is the final format. You don't need to uncompress it further.

I believe that it's the .TAF file that has been zipped. But I could be wrong, of course...

Are you thinking that .taf is some sort of zipped format, like .zip or .rar?

yes, oooh the 80's...once I REALIZED I'm missing a ZIP/UNZIP pgm., I downloaded one, unzipped the ADRIFT RUNNER, and tadaaaduhh.. I opened up Advent350b, and immediately recalled the original text game that got me writing my own, and so I will again! =they were really good! (and indepth) (and intriguing) (and, uh, anyway...) thank you for your time. You will be hearing from me again soon, probably, when I purchase the Adrift pkg.. gg.
