WinPAW Adventure Writing System

Quill & PAW Snapshots

So far I have not been able to find a site where you can only get both Quill & PAW snapshots. This site has the space to handle the snapshots, so I am going to keep them here. The intent is to be a repository for any 'Spectrum compliant' Quill and PAW snapshots.

My starting Point has been the World of Spectrum database. I have gotten the Publishers of all the Quill and Paw text adventures I have. I am checking other text adventures made by those publishers to see if they are Quill or Paw adventures. Some of those publishers have quite a few text adventures, so it will be a long task. I also intend to check some of the other publishers also. The WOS lists about 1450 text adventures. As of Tuesday, December 6, 2005 I have found 148 Quill or Paw games.

I have corresponded with John Wilson of Zenobi Software and he has given me the Exclusive rights to re-engineer the Zenobi titles as I see fit and to make these 're-engineered' versions available for download purely as examples of how WinPaw works. I will not have the snapshots available here. These snapshots will be shown as (Available at WOS or TZXVault).

If you know of any snapshots (.sna, .Z80, or .SP), .tap, or .tzx files for Quill or PAW games (Spectrum Only) which do not have snapshots here, email me at info@winpaw.com with a location of the file (or you can attach it to the email) and if you know it, the manufacturer (or author). I will take non-English games also.

Quill snapshots will be in .sna format. This is mainly because that is the only format UnQuill will handle. UnPaws, which can handle UnQuill snapshots as of version 2.0, also supports .sna snapshots.

PAW snapshots will be in .z80 format.

I am going to UnPaws all the snapshots and ZIP them for the site also. I used UnPaws because it gives a bit more game information than UnQuill.

I have a few solutions for the games. I willl try to find more. They will be shown in the UnPaws Table. If I have the solution, they will have a Y under Sol and that will be a link to the solution.

As I have them become available, I will also have ZIPped versions of the WinPaw database of WinPawed adventures here also.

Files which are either < 30 days old or new as of this build of the listing will be shown with a .
