Welcome to InPAWS page, a tool that allows you to develop interactive fiction for the ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC, using Gilsoft's Professional Adventure Writing System(PAW) database format. For a more in depth description of InPAWS capabilities, visit this page.
InPAWS v1.0 FINAL
Final release of the tool, with the following improvements:
- It's now possible to generate Superglus (GLULX) targets.
- More efficient processes entries storing in memory. Lower memory consumption of the synonym expressions.
- it is possible to define words of any size. The compiler will trim them based on the target platform (PAW or Superglus), notyfiyng when a cut out word would generate an unintended repetition (as in NOTEPAD/NOTEPAPER)
- Fixed some errors
- Source code distribution (GPLed)
Access to the downloads.
InPAWS v1 RC4
New version with a fixed bug and an interesting improvement: use of OR operator in process/response entries, as well as in the condacts inside the entries. Now, it is possible to write expressions like:
USE KEY|OPEN DOOR: CARRIED Key|ISAT Key Pocket MESSAGE xxxx
Inpaws will convert that kind of entries into as many expressions as needed to cover the same functionality. Be careful because massive use of this feature can multiply entries (and lack of memory) in process/response tables. The former expresion leads to 4 entries.
Some weeks ago I announced InPAWS in a blog that I still maintain, but evidently is not the best place to store the downloads for a tool. The server was somewhat slow and some people pointed that the downloads didn't work well. The people from Speccy.org has kindly donated this web space, so from now it is the official InPAWS web and all the downloads and anything related to InPAWS will go here.
