Hey. It's me again.

#stillalive

I found an old file that's full of fun code and I was hoping I could open it in Inform again. Is such a thing possible? I hope so at least. I'd love to use some of that code for something new...

It was made in inform 7 and turned into glulx file.

No.

You can try disassembling it for a hint as to what the original code looked like, but it will be just a hint.

Yeah, unfortunately, Inform 7 is such a high-level language compared to Glulx that modern computers aren't smart enough to reverse-engineer it. You can get the strings back, and even the I6 function names in many cases, but anything else will be easier just to write from scratch (unless you really like reading assembly code).
