Interpreters for Dreamcast Section

FrotzDC is an Interactive Fiction interpreter for
the Sega Dreamcast which can play v1 through v5 Z-Machine
games. Several popular Z-Machine games include the
Zork trilogy, Adventure, and The Hitchhiker's Guide
to the Galaxy.
People that are new to Interactive Fiction should
check out the Beginner's Guide to Interactive Fiction
by Joe W Aultman and may wish to play several games
online in their browser at iFiction. Users interested
in playing the iFiction games on a Dreamcast browser
may be interested in this guide which will help you
save your game using the Dreamcast browser. A great
site to download freeware games for use with FrotzDC
is The Interactive Fiction Archive.
FrotzDC is based on UNIX Frotz version 2.43, which
is released under the GNU General Public License.
You can find out more about UNIX frotz on the UNIX

The latest version of FrotzDC has limited support
for sound effects. In order to use sound you will
need to convert your audio files to wav format and
put them in a folder with the same name as the game.
For example, for sherlo.z5, you would have a folder
named "sherlo" to contain the files. I am
providing the converted audio files for Sherlock in
the download section, but this does not include the
z5 file, as Sherlock is a commercial Infocom game
