Tim Sweeney

ZZT is an ANSI character-based video game, created in 1991 by Tim Sweeney of Potomac Computer Systems which became Epic MegaGames in 1992. It remains a popular MS-DOS game creation system. ZZT itself is not an acronym for anything; its title was chosen so it would always appear at the bottom of newsgroup listings. It was later jokingly mentioned by Sweeney as being short for Zoo of Zero Tolerance, which has mistakenly become a popular belief.

World created using the Super ZZT engine. Emulation via DOSBox is no longer the preferred method for playing Super ZZT worlds. Worlds frequently run slower, have laggy input, and audio issues. Visit the Museum of ZZT for more information on programs such as Zeta and other ZZT emulators/source ports.

Chex Quest 1 & 2 with beginning and end animation. The game starts with a batch file called "LAUNCHER.BAT".  For some reason it poops out in this online version of DOSBox. It works fine on my home computer though. I was able to get the two videos (SMK files) to play using a DOS version of Smacker Player.

An alternate emulator for ZZT such as Zeta or a modern source port like ClassicZoo may provide a better experience.

This here is Strife, but i fixed the intro animation that plays before the game starts. All i had to do was i had to convert the STRIFE.AVI file to a Smacker Video file, then add the latest version of Smacker Video Player and then edit the STRIFE.BAT file  to make it play the fixed intro. I also deleted the AVI.EXE file and said .AVI file as you can see.
