how did you program this?
Not too difficult to program. It's written in Java, uses apache.org HttpClient to log in, fetch the forum HTML pages, then does some rexexp searches to find the necessary info from these. Then uses a Z-Machine class ripped from Zinc ( zinc-if.sourceforge.net ) to run the game and posts the response again using HttpClient.
The idea of running text adventure games on the forums was actually Jake's.
I might try to leave it on for the night running a game (in a new thread) if I manage to fix some issues. Any requests?
I'd like either Zork or the Hitchhikers Guide game... both sort of standard classics I know, but hey I've never played either.

If it prints usernames now, I'm going to post a new thread and leave it on... It will probably crash, but what the hell.
Closing this thread then, for now at least, to prevent confusion.
