    I don't know of any repos that have more Infocom files for the interpreter. However, there is a large archive of third-party Z-Machine-format (v5) text adventures for Frotz here. (These are NOT original Infocom games, just fan conversions of other text adventures or original text adventures designed by fans in the z5 Z-Machine format for use with a Frotz-type interpreter.)

    The original Infocom games are still commercial properties (via Activision, who currently own them) and are not available freely. If you can find it, there's an archive called The Lost Treasures of Infocom that features 20 Infocom text adventures on CD-ROM.

    Well I've had a good search but to no avail so....Can anyone please tell me where I am supposed to put the frotz files I downloaded. It automatically downloaded them to var/root/media and made a folder called frotz with another one inside called games where the files are. Frotz doesn't see them where they are...no story files found is the message I get. I moved them to var/mobile/media but still no luck...that fix worked for my ROMs no worries. Not sure what to do now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks...shannow777

    I'm running 16g touch with 1.1.4
