FROTZ Problem

I have the FROTZ app for iPad 2.

With it, you can, via a website, upload InfoCom.Z files you own.

So I follow the instructions to the letter and, of course, it doesn't work ....

I mean, God forbid it couldn't use something as simple as "iTunes File Transfer" ....

Oh no no no no ....

Instead, it uses some stupid, superconvoluted overly gimmicky method that, as I say, DOESN'T WORK.

Any help, please?

Thanks in advance.

Hrm, I'd have to try it again, but I think I was able to put them on by sharing the .Z files I had via HTTP and browsing to them - not sure if you can put them on via iPhone Explorer or not.

It used to be easier, but I think Apple worried about executing code/piracy and made them change the app.

Thanks, man.

What I ended up doing is emailing myself the .Z files as an attachment, go to the MAIL app, tap the attachment,
tap OPEN WITH .... FROTZ popup & let the game open in FROTZ.

But it's kinda irrelevant as I keep checking the App Store every 2 seconds looking for "Modern Combat 3"! lol
It's already out in the Pacific Rim.

Or you could use iExplorer and simply drag the zX file to Frotz's Documents/games folder.
