Greetings and Happy New Year, Z-100 Brothers!
It’s been a while since my last update, but I have not been idle in my Z-100 affairs. Why not meet the new year with some authentic Avalon Hill games released specifically for the Z-100 platform! The Z-100 software archives now contain four classic Avalon Hill games that were ported to the Z-100 series CP/M platform:
- Stocks & Bonds
- Football Strategy
- Telengard – love this game!
- B-1 Nuclear Bomber
The game manuals have been scanned to pdf files and are in the .zip files. To play the games on a Z-100, do the following:
- Prepare a Z-100 CP/M formatted floppy disk
- Unzip a selected game file
- Use a terminal program to transfer the individual files to a CP/M-formatted floppy on your Z-100 – do NOT transfer the .pdf files.
- Launch MBasic (included in the .zip files)
- Type “run <filename> where filename will be something like b1 or gard. You don’t need to specify the .bas suffix.
- Enjoy your game!
Update 12/31/15: I’ve added ImageDisk files (.IMD) of each game to the respective game .zip files to support those who don’t have serial connections to their Z-100, but have a PC capable of writing floppies with ImageDisk.
