Regarding the write protection, actually at least the second disc should be unprotected all the time, because it is best to use it to save your games while you are playing (there is space for around 140 saves in there!)
Question: Is there a command for viewing the room graphics and description again? I tried "look" and "examine" (on it's own) and neither work.
That did throw me off at first, as I loaded the rar into winape without really thinking. I was surprised to get a write error while loading, it's a bit counter-intuitive; I would have expected an error when trying to save the font or the game, not before. Is writing a mandatory step during loading? I know some people like to keep their data on write-protected discs, and use a separate disc to save their game, to try to minimize the risk of corruption. Though it's much less of a problem on a non-copy-protected game like yours, which can be rewritten at will.
I just started to play it. I wish I had read the PDF because it answered a lot of questions.First thing I found is that I needed two drives to play it properly. If I tried to play it with one drive, then CPM was asking me to insert disc into drive A, then B, then A etc LOL. After I used two drives it worked much better.Question: Is there a command for viewing the room graphics and description again? I tried "look" and "examine" (on it's own) and neither work. I discovered "exits" lists the directions.I also tried to use "take" and that didn't seem to work but the I found "get" works fine.Now I will go back and read the manual
