These screenshots were taken from version 1.32. Note that all the Infocom graphics shown are from the .MG1 files - at the time working Blorb versions of the Infocom were not yet available. With version 1.50's support for an extension to the Blorb format, the Infocom games can now be accurately reproduced.
