NOTE: most of these programs
only work with Eamon version 4-6, as noted.
A nifty little program with
two user-specified options: FREESPACE modifies DOS 3.3 so that the CATALOG
command lists free space at the top. FILEDUMP prints any text file directly to
Compatibility notes: FREESPACE
prints a blank for free sectors on my enhanced lIe but works OK on my 11+ and
ROM1 GS. FILEDUMP works fine on my 11+ and lIe but crashes into the Monitor on
CHANGE EAMON NAME (v6)
A painless way to change an
Adventure name or the Adventure number. Caution: make sure that the EAMON
ADVENTURE #XXX program, the intro program, and EAMON.NAME are unlocked before
LAST UPDATE INSTALL (all)
Back before the EAG took over
Eamon library maintenance, Eamon adventures had a blank line in the catalog
where the LAST UPDATE line is now. This program renames this "blank name" file
to LAST UPDATE. This program will crash on Eamons that have the LAST UPDATE
EAMON DOS REMOVER (all)
This program frees up an
additional 32 sectors of disk space by deleting DOS from the disk. It also adds
an alert message that prints to the screen when the disk is booted.
LCASE KILLER (all)
BRUNnIng this program from a
running Applesoft program will convert all of the text in the programís PRINT
statements to upper case.
LC/UC CONV (all)
This program will convert any
string to all upper case text, as noted in the DDD 7.0 Utilities Manual. To make
it available, simply BLOAD it. To convert the string A$, use this command: CALL
VERSION ANALYSIS (vl-6)
Can identify Eamon versions 1
through 6. Doesnít recognize non-standard formats or 7.x.
See UNIVERSAL CHECK FILES.
ROOMS CONVERT (v4-5)
This program can change the
record size of the EAMON.ROOMS data file. It reads in EAMON.ROOMS and writes a
new file names NEW. ROOMS at the specified record length. You must then delete
the original EAMON.ROOMS and rename NEW.ROOMS to EAMON.ROOMS to complete the
The new record length is
specified in Line 20 of the program, which you must modify to the length that
ROOM NAMES CONVERT (v4-6)
ARTIFACTS CONVERT (v4-5)
These two programs work just
like ROOMS CONVERT above to convert EAMON.ROOM NAMES and EAMON.ARTIFACTS,
ARTIFACT MAINTENANCE (v4-6)
Normally, using dead bodies
greatly complicates modification of the Artifact database, as the dead bodies
must all be together and should be at the end of the file. This program gives
you a quick and easy way to insert extra "DUMMY" artifacts into any point in the
artifact list. It will also remove excess
artifacts that you want to get
rid of to free up disk and memory space.
REMOVE DUMMY ARTIFACTS (v4-6)
A common way to develop Eamon
adventures is to stick a bunch of extra "DUMMY" artifacts in between the "real"
artifacts and the dead bodies. Thus you can use the "dummies" to add more
artifacts without having to monkey with the dead bodies. This program can be
used to help you get rid of excess dummies once you are through with
DESC EDIT (v4-6)
A very handy program for doing
quick fixes of errors in the descriptions.
UNIVERSAL CHECK FILES (v4-7)
Reports the version and
structure of Eamon adventures. Recognizes all known non-standard formats.
Verifies the integrity of the database files and reports any errors.
ADD LIGHT TO ROOMS (v4-6)
Adds the "light" data to the
room data (if itís not already there) and sets all rooms to "lit".
Lists the number and names and
selected data fields for rooms, artifacts, or monsters. Can list to printer.
LIST EAMON R.A.M. (v4-6)
Prints out the numbers and
names of rooms, artifacts, and monsters. Can list to printer.
ROOM ANALYSIS (v4-6)
Lists room numbers and names
plus all artifacts and monsters in each room. Doesnít recognize hidden or
embedded artifacts. Can list to printer.
QUICKY ROOM PRINT (v4-6)
Lists room numbers and names
plus room exits. Does not print light. Can list to printer.
FLEX DUNGEON LIST 2.1 (v4-6)
Prints out database in 40-col.
format. Does not print light.
DUNGEON LIST Z (v4-6)
This program incorporates the
features of several old Eamon utilities not found on this disk. The features:
Lists Rooms, Artifacts,
Effects, and Monsters; makes cleaner printouts than DUNGEON LIST does.
Room Analysis: same as
Walk-Through: enables you to
go from room to room; does not recognize doors or non-standard room connections.
The strength of this program
is that it only loads what it needs to do the task you select, and retains that
data in memory. Thus you can save a lot of time waiting on disk accesses, making
it very useful for messing about in the database.
DUNGEON LIST 6.OG (v4-6)
Basically the same as the
DUNGEON LIST program on the 6.2 DDD, but with a couple of minor extras. Makes
much cleaner printouts than DUNGEON LIST does!
TEST BENCH (all)
Allows you to quickly start an
adventure without using the Main Hall. You can define your test characterís
(named "Testor of Bench") basic stats, and will play with a basic set of
weaponry. Note: donít use the "default" setting, which gives you a nearly
ADVANCED BENCH (all)
Similar to TEST BENCH, but
permits you to specify more of the characterís stats. Gives you two mundane
weapons and one 2D8 sword.
EAMON CHARACTERS FILE MAINT
A comprehensive CHARACTERS
file maintenance program that enables you to change any aspect of the CHARACTERS
database. You can also resurrect dead ones, make copies, generate new
characters, list the contents, and more.
CHAR REBIRTH (all)
A simple program that will
resurrect a "dead" character in the CHARACTERS file. Handy when youíve been
killed out of an adventure.
START ADVENTURE (all)
This program is similar to the
test benches above, but gets the data from that stored in the CHARACTERS file.
Handy for quick startups because it is faster than using the Main Hall and
doesnít mark the character as "dead".
FRESH SAM (all)
Another program that starts
Eamon adventures without having to use the Main Hall. This one uses a preset
character ("Sam"), whose stats represent an advanced character who has earned
reasonably high stats and decent weapons. I personally use this program for all
of my Eamon playing.
