How to play Murder At The Diogenes Club?


I think I should start by saying thanks Ben for this fun distro which I have been playing with off and on in VirtualBox (Rogue brings back memories of my first PC, a DOS machine).
I do have one issue though -- I understand that Murder At The Diogenes Club was included from a few releases ago but I can't for the life of me find out how to play it. Is it accessed through an emulator or on the command line or something? It sounds like it could be a fun game.
Thanks again for the distro.

Hi 273,

It is good to read that RCL has been fun so far, and you are welcome.

Z-machine games are run in sfrotz. To play it, run Sfrotz, click "Play Murder at the Diogenes Club", then click Open.

I updated the wiki page to list the games. That will include Sfrotz in the search results for Diogenes. See the wiki page for instructions to play other Sherlock Holmes interactive fiction.

Best Regards,

-Ben

Thanks Ben, I knew it was just something obvious I was missing.
I'll be sure to check out the other stuff too.

As a long-time Sherlockian, I think I must check out that distro.

Update, Two Days Later:

Nice job of work.
