(GARY: I'm paraphrasing John's email.)
To make cheats for Gloom, type Gloom goobers in text file, save it as Cheats.bat.
Click on Cheats.bat to run Gloom.
Then it's shift+alt+tab.
The message "Debugging keys available" should come up.
Tab +G for God
Tab+X for extra stuff
Tab+I gives items
Tab+C counts the actors on that floor
Tab+ E should end the level
Tab+H hurts you
Tab+W warps you somewhere??
Tab+B changes the Border (dunno why)
you didn't know how to do the debug in Wolfenstein?
whooo.......

THOMAS M. HAMILTON

Hi Gary,
I'm a long-time comic fanzine collector, and I've been looking for a copy of Dolfin Comics for quite a while. As a kid in the '60s, I did have a copy--in fact, I believe it was one of the very first fanzines I ever ordered. I recall liking it very much; the quality of the art and printing were great, and I was a bit disappointed when I learned that not all fanzines had color covers such as yours.
Anyway, I've been searching for a copy on Ebay, asking many dealers, etc., but to no avail. Yesterday, just for the heck of it, I Googled it and found your game site. I was pleased to see that it's still possible to get a digital copy from you, because it could be decades before I find an actual copy (unless you still have any?). Please find my enclosed check for the digital version.
Very much appreciated,
Tom Hamilton

Hi Gary.
I just finished playing level 1 of Gloom. I must say I found it very entertaining as well as challenging.
First of all you have made good use of the new features.
I really liked the level design, it was big, I always like that, and it had a lot of interesting and surprising twists and turns, making for a lot of variation in action and enemy movements.
I also found the inclusion of boss like enemies a great addition to the level.
I played it on the hardest difficulty setting which made it quite challenging, but still certainly beatable, quite the right degree of difficulty I should say.
One point, half way through the level, there were a set of three secret doors and if you pushed the wrong one you would be blocked off from the rest of the level, or at least so it appeared to me. I sometime save right after pushing a secret door, if I had pushed the wrong one it seems to me I should have had to start all over.
The opening to level 2 looked very intriguing and original, I look forward to playing it later.
Best regards, Paal.

Hi Gary.
I just started playing Gloomstein. I really like the design and the conversion. This is a great game.

KEN SILVERMAN

(I sent Ken Silverman an email and he responded-Gary.)
GARY: Years ago I called you to see about a program to create levels you offered in Ken's Labyrinth Your parents answered the phone, and I never got around to calling you back.
KEN:It's probably for the best. I tend to disappoint people on the phone with my lack of talking skills.
GARY:I always wondered what kind of program you would have sent me that would have enabled me to edit the levels of Ken's Labyrinth.
KEN:I probably wouldn't have sent you anything at the time, and you would have thought I was a mean person. I eventually did release those editing tools in 2005. I put the Ken's Labyrinth Developer's Toolkit here: http://advsys.net/ken/klab.htm#klabkit.
GARY: My website is http://Acordgames.webstarts.com.
KEN: Nice screenshots. It's funny seeing anime in Wolfenstein. It's a shame that you never got into Build.
GARY: I'm always hoping to find a few people to communicate with.
KEN: These days, I've been chatting mostly with other programmers as I've been more interested in developing engines and tools, rather than making games to sell. It looks like you do mostly artwork. That would be a great fit if I ever wanted to work on a commercial game again. If I worked on a game with you, would I have to do all the programming for it? Do you know vector math? If the answers to these questions are both no, then I'm not sure I would want to dedicate that kind of time right now. -Ken S.

MATT STATH and PEDRO LAMBRINI

MATT STATH: I've just gotten an email today that Acord Games has released Gloom. It has 60 levels, enemies from ROTT, Doom, and Blake. It's available at http://acordgames.webstarts.com.
PEDRO LAMBRINI(Per-Scan): I'll check out the Acord game although I often find them to be a little bit of a mishmash with no real theme. Some of them can be fun though!
PEDRO (email to Matt): I can have fun messing around with Gloom and all the extra levels you've sent me
MATT (email to Pedro): Gary Acord sent me an email yesterday that he's fixed the no sound glitch in Gloom.
PEDRO (email to Matt): Once again, thank you! i'll have to re-download Gloom. It is actually pretty good fun...
MATT (email to Gary): When I run play.bat it comes up with a Y,N option instead of displaying your menu screen.
GARY: Your Windows's choice.com is apparently over-riding the choice.com in the game directory. This could affect you running any batch files that have the choice.com, and you need to correct that problem. 99% of people would not have a problem running the batch file. The problem is with your Windows.
MATT: I'm apparently not in the 99% that can get your level and graphics selections to work.
GARY: The problem is a little more serious than that. You are in the 1% that can't get your Windows to use a batch file with the universal choice.com that has been used over the past 20 years by thousands and thousands of programs. You can be in denial, but your Windows are not functioning properly if they can't recognize the standard choice.com used over the years, or if they override it with their own version. You will be unable to run many programs that you'll encounter.
MATT: In 2 years, it will be time for me to get a new computer because it will be 8 years old. I'll see if your mods will change between levels then when I set up a new computer. I hope that it will properly work with choice.com then.
GARY:If your Windows tries to use its own version of choice.com instead of the version contained in the game directory, the following solution may be necessary.
(1) Rename "choice.com" "chooz.com".
(2) Use notepad to open Play.bat.
(3) In Notepad, at the top of the screen, click on "Edit"
(4) Click "Replace"
(5) Then replace the word choice with chooz.
(6) Save the file.
(7) Exit
Now, if your Windows was overwriting choice.com with its own version, the problem should be fixed.


Welcome to the Acord Games Forum. It is our hope to carry input from our Game players, suggestions, comments, questions, and so forth about the various Acord Games, and sounding off on whatever gripes they have about today's computers and the direction computers and games are going. If you would like to give some input to this Forum, or have a complaint or suggestion, then click on Contact Gary in the left column of this page, and put FORUM in the Subject part of the email. All input will be carefully considered.

Gary Acord created Acord Games in 1991. From that year through today, Gary has been creating games for Acord Games. In 1991, 1992, and 1994 Gary created 20 shareware games and 4 freeware games, plus the 40 registered games that go with the shareware games. In 2010, Gary created 30 new games and several utilities and is presently creating new games and projects. Acord would like to get his games carried on as many BBS's as possible. If someone puts Acord Games games on their BBS, they will be listed at the top of this page as a Download link. Acord Games needs your support, and Gary Acord can be emailed at Acordgames@Juno.com.

Gary Acord is one of the founding fathers of comicbook fandom, an article on him appearing in the recently published book The Best Of Star Studded Comics edited by Bill Schelly and published by Hamster Press, Seattle, Washington.

Acord published several amateur comic books back in the 60s, Dolfin Comics and Amateur Komix, published a fanzine called The Wonderful World Of Komix, and published a science-fiction magazine called Wotta World. He has written numerous books, the most famous being Heaven On Earth.

Gary Acord was elected president of DaSF, the Dallas Science Fiction Society, and led the club for two years.

Gary Acord is the sole creator of Acord Games doing all the writing, artwork and production. He has recently released Dolfin Comics as a PC Comicbook.

Gary also created Zapagame, a menued CD presentation with 250 of the most popular shareware and demo games of all time. Also available are Zapwin and Zapwin 2 CDs, each one a menued presentation of the greatest Windows games of all time. If you would like a copy of the Zapagame CD, or either of the two Zapwin CDs, send $10 for each of these three CDs, to Gary Acord, 823 Salmon Dr., Dallas, TX 75208. Phone 214-941-2049. For an additional $10, you can obtain a copy of the Dolfin PC Comicbook, with artwork by Gary Acord, Richard Buckler, Jim Starlin, and Grass Green.

Individual Acord Games can also be found at Dosmuseum.com, and at Home Of The Underdogs.

Gary is very enthused about computer games and programs, and is in need of people with whom to communicate from time to time who are interested in computer games. He is always updating his Zapagame CD, distributing copies to as many people as possible, fulfilling his desire to spread his favorite games and preserve them for prosperity, and hoping to get feedback and suggestions on how to improve the Zapagame CD.

Acord Games Downloads needs your help to stay online. Providing these free downloads takes a lot of time, and Gary needs some financial help to keep things afloat. Donations would be very much appreciated for the invaluable service we provide for our supporters. We will offer the above CDs for donations. For a $10 donation, we'll send you a copy of the Zapagame CD, $20 donation gets Zapagame and Zapwin CDs, $30 donation gets Zapagame, Zapwin and Zapwin2 CDs, and a $40 donation gets Zapagame, Zapwin, Zapwin2, and Dolfin PC Comics CDs. For donations over $40, a CD full of games will be sent for each $10 donated above $40, in addition to these four CDs.
