Retrochallenge Summer 2014

My last-minute entry for the summer 2014 Retrochallenge is that I’m going to write a character editor for Questron, an old-school CRPG from 1984.  I’ll link all the posts on this page for easy reference.

If you have a Commodore 64 – or an emulator – and a copy of Questron, you can try out Questron Ed for yourself.  The zip file contains the source code (in C for the cc65 compiler) and a .d64 disk image with an executable copy of the editor.  Give it a shot – just don’t blame me if something goes wrong 😉

Questron I, published in 1984.  Incidentally, much harder to find than its sequel.

I've ported my code to read Questron save files to C, and compiled it for the C64.  Now we just need to edit values and save the resulting file!
