Dunno if you can do this, but once you have a bunch of these adventures ported, could you stick them all on a single disk image?

Good Idea !

It's 19k interpreters (64k and 128k) for each game + Datafile. Maybe 2 or three of the smaller ones on one disk should be possible. A "Sampler" - let me rethink that some days.

If the interpreter is common, maybe adding a menu could be worth it? So that it would save space on the redundant executables.

Well, it needs the game name "hardcoded" inside the interpreter. So "patching" the *.COM files on they fly via a self written CP/M menu program is beyond my (actual) skills :( - but if someone can do taht it is quite easy I guess.

Hmm, sometimes there may be a "lighter" way to handle things.

No nice menu, you have to type some commands, BUT all three miniadventures on one disk usind one pair of interpreters.

Insert disk and start |CPM ... (it's provided on disk), and follow instructions.

My FIRST EVER CP/M Batch scripting. Nice feature.
