Orient Express game

Post by Gordon R »

Here is a piece of code that doesn't run in JB.
It needs JPEGDLL and other sophisticated things else well.

You can transform it to JB but then you have to use BMPs.
Your file will become hudge.

So enjoy this with LB.
I had a pleasant time solving the puzzles here

This is very impressive, Gordon. For anyone interested in how and why this program came about, read the conversation at

The orginal program was for the Atari, written in GWBasic. You can view the original source at

Several of us at the JB Forum witnessed the conception of Gordon's project and it's wonderful to now see the actual birth. Well done, Gordon! The game was enjoyable in text, but even more so with all the sound effects and graphics.

I have tokenized Gordon's program for those JB Users who don't have Liberty BASIC. This zipped package contains just the orientv4.tkn and the orientv4.exe. You will need to unzip these two files into a folder that contains the 8 required dll/sll 's. If you don't have these, download John Davidson's LBCanDo in this same section. Be sure it's the first download, the large one, that contains the necessary dll/sll 's. Download, unzip, then unzip or copy the 2 orientv4 files to the LBCanDo folder. Double click the orientv4.exe. It's the file with the LB Icon.
Remember that this is an unfinished program. In the opening title screen, wait for the Get Smart theme song to end, then left click the graphic page, wait for the next sound wave to finish, then left click the graphic page again. When the car image is shown on the bottom right, left click that image. From then on, whenever you want to move to the next screen, just left click the graphic page AFTER the sound wave has finished playing.
