the start of something big

Back in the early days, this created fire.. I used this in many of my games, like uhh, well, every one after that bad Business Bob update.. It could flow in a motion.. After a while I found ZZTek Mag #2 and it made it so ALL the colours in the room changed, with slime, spreading a fire of sorts.. This was the start of making graphics without making them.. and to be able to stop the mixer by putting it on the title screen, you can do a lot of stuff.. Changing the cycle of the object to make it a slower change.. or exploding bombs and changing bomb explosions to fakes to doors to fakes and painting over that to get a randomized background.. The use of the slime became unlimited. Slime races, Slime Slurp, and slime time was all used... Thanks to the author of this engine.

This is not a game, this is a true work of art. I think it really looks like fire. The programming behind it was actually very simple, but its good anyway.

I agree with Commodore, you guys are fat and dumb

This engine was made in like 1995 by yenrab, the author of such seminal games as Dogfight and Escape from Planet Red (as well as somewhat less seminal ones like THE PURPLE FILES). Before the creation of this, the only way people knew of to make fire effects was to use lots of objects (which is VERY limiting). That the engine has since been used in many ZZT games since is testament to what a good idea this engine was.

Frankly, it's a little piece of history! Even if it's a pretty useless file nowadays since you can get this stuff in many of the toolkits around.

Shut up

Neither of the two previous reviewers take into account the historical importance of this ZZT file. One object fire is very useful and was utilised by ZZT greats such as Madguy in Wartorn, and me! ;) I don't even think this appears in the ZZT encylopedia.

I really think this sucks and should be taken off the website (It wastes space). Its no use and theres nothing there you can really use.

Ban this damn thing.

Well, thats what it is

Well, the title fits what it does, one object makes the whole title screen appear to be on fire. That is all CFRVRFZZTG [J] for just about anyone, though I don't know why anyone would want this.
