Description of Stuart Smith's Adventure Construction Set

As its name implies, Adventure Construction Set is a program that allows you to create your own "adventure." The result is really an RPG, due to heavy emphasis on monsters and statistics.

As a tool for creating dungeons, ACS was very advanced for its time. Though the graphics and sound are simple, there is a lot of room for customization. In addition to a myriad of design choices, the program offers a "create random adventure" feature that is perfect for everyone with limited patience. Once an adventure is created, you can create a "stand-alone" executable to give out to your friends.

Overall, a solid, versatile package that is well worth a look if you like top-down RPGs. Too bad the dated graphics don't stand up too well with time, though-- anyone for a muted-EGA dungeon romp? :)

I understand the AMIGA emulator version is the only way this can run due to the floppy drive assignment issue... Anybody can give me a quick guide to where to find one , a link to a FAQ site or something, because I loved this so much as a kid and can't understand much how to make it work.

This was my favorite game as a kid. A total predecessor to game like Minecraft (which would've blown my mind!).

Hi, if anyone sees this, again with the disk drive question. You cant tell it where or how to locate the new floppy. You only have the option of entering "Insert". There's no way to modify this in any way. I'm sure someone has been successful in running and creating new games with this emulation - yes? Please help.
Im running Windows 10 fyi

I must have spent thousands of hours on this back when it was released. Thousands.

I still love the classic ACS/Ultima style RPGs of old. If you just want to play similar looking games theres tons of roguelike games that use optional graphics tilesets of various sizes. But if you want to make your own the simplest way is to download a kit called Adventure Creation Kit which was inspired by ACS.

how does one get an amiga emulator, i don't understand how to change where it looks for a floppy, can you be a bit more specific with the directions for overcoming the floppy problem?
