[Tom Zuchowski] The "SLAMMERS" disk was my last Eamon
work in progress. This was by far my most ambitious Eamon, with very
extensive, complex commands and weaponry, and a 400-room map. It was
mostly done as far as the first scene and puzzle set, but it is
otherwise incomplete. I thought you might be interested in the
introduction and that first scene, which you can play up to the point
where you destroy the ambushers with the tank's main gun. If it crashes
in 80-column mode, try it in 40-column lower-case mode. If the scenario
interests you, you might want to pick up "Hammer's Slammers," a book by
This is an emulator HDV (hard drive) image that Frank made. It
contains a bunch of special modified Eamons that he had made in
1999. It works with Apple II emulators that support
the HDV format. Hard drive images are usually loaded into "slot 7" just
like DSK images in "slot 6". Use the emulator's reset function or type
"PR#7" at the Apple command prompt to boot.
[As written by Frank]:. The adventures on this hard drive image are all old adventures that I
converted to an optimized, all lowercase system about 9 years ago. When the
ApplePC emulator came out I started to put this HDV image together as a side project and thought I would share it..
All but a few of these adventures have a MAIN PGM that I developed
which has all of the Eamon version 7 features and more but runs as a
version 6. This was based on an Eamon 8.0 system that I had developed.
I have also included my universal
Dungeon Edit and Dungeon List
programs. Very useful tools that are also from the Eamon 8.0
Eamon 8.0 never ended up getting released because it was finished at
one of the many times when it seemed that interest in Eamon, and the
Apple II, were nearly dead. Tom Zuchowski of the Eamon
Adventurer's Guild felt that version 7 was hard enough to get people to
switch over to; and, since nobody was writing Eamons anymore anyway, he
never announced it; he was
very impressed and approved of it, though...
I've tested each of these adventures to make sure they run and return
to the Main Hall properly.

This is a creation that Matt Vigor made several
years ago on a Windows 98 machine. It is a ProDOS hard drive image file
that worked with ApplePC emulator. It can be mounted while emulating a
][GS and contains every Eamon that I had access to in ProDOS format.
Right now the file is in a Stuffit archive and needs to be expanded.
Inside you'll find an 8MB file called EAMON.HDV
PROGRAM LINE EDITOR (GPLE)
by Konzen. - Enhanced version of Program Line Editor with programmable
cursor and listing control. Edit line by line or by range of lines and
search for strings. This program considerably simplified the entry and
editing of Applesoft programs. Instead of the repetitious ESC-key
cursor movements, PLE and GPLE allowed editing to be clearly displayed
on the screen as it was done.
