More AGI Utilities

Today I discovered the Wayback Machine. I had overheard people talking about it at various times but it wasn't until today that I realised I had a need for it. My original AGI web site, "The Hidden Secrets of Sierra", the one I lost many years ago, is still available via the Wayback Machine. Unfortunately the downloads don't work (they may never have worked on that particular version of the site). Using the Wayback Machine I was also able to see "The Ultimate AGI & SCI Web Site", one of the original AGI/SCI web sites that dated back to when I was still working on utilities such as PICEDIT. I realised I had hit the jackpot when I noticed on the archived copy of Brian Provinciano's web site that the download links for my AGI utilties where all pointing to Sure enough, I tried out the links and they all worked. I have now downloaded the ones I no longer had copies of and have added them to the Files section of this site. This includes the MEKA binary and source code (which I had thought were lost for good). With SCUMMVM, NAGI and able to handle our AGI interpreter needs in these modern times, the MEKA code isn't a lot of use. But once upon a time MEKA was the most advanced fan-made AGI interpreter and I invested quite a lot of time into it. It is good to see that it still exists and for nostalgic reasons it is a great to have it on this site.

With the addition of these utilities, the Files page is now a fairly complete set of all the AGI utilities I ever wrote in the C and Pascal languages.
