I suppose it's unheard of that people's interests and creative pursuits evolve and move along; that game software designers might also have careers and day-jobs and bills to pay; There's always someone's nerve who gets touched. Yes, I know all of that. And, of course, that's why many projects make ...

It's quite sad really. I love TADS. I've been using TADS for a while now. The only other parser authoring system I'd consider using is Inform 6, which is also quite dead. Let's hope T3 makes a comeback. (Also, Inform 7 is quite decent, but I digress.) My concern with Inform 7, beyond the fact that ...

Tads isn't dead regarding that recently a full length commercial game was released, named Thaumistry. TADS is definitely dead for practical purposes. One game released doesn't mean a thing. If you look at levels of activity and how much is going on around a tool (whether that's implementation or ju...

Mike hasn't abandoned TADS, has he? All available evidence would strongly suggest, but not prove, that this is the case. I also tried to contact him awhile back about some questions regarding whether adv3lite was going to be incorporated as a replacement or alternative library in the Workbench. I t...

If you honestly think all that, you should probably take a look at my "Extension Pain" post in the Inform area.

Just to cap off the experience. Beyond the ones I mentioned I also needed to get Glk Object Recovery and Glk Events. When I finally seem to get every extension installed and a compile going, I get: In Part - Glk Window Attributes in the extension Common Commands Sidebar by Alice Grove: Problem. I am...

Okay, good to know. That gets me a little farther. Next error was: "I can't find the extension 'Alternative Startup Rules by Dannii Willis', which seems not to be installed, but was requested by: 'Include version 1/140516 of Alternative Startup Rules by Dannii Willis" Find that. Install it...

This will sound like a rant and I guess it is. But given what seems to be a multi-year release cycle of Inform, it's very unclear to me why extensions are such a pain. Case in point. I use this line: Include Common Commands Sidebar by Alice Grove. That's an extension from the Public Library that a n...

It is also possible, via some juggling of code bits, to retrofit some of the better aspects of Adv3Lite into Adv3. So how exactly do you go about that? There's no guide to all of the little micro-changes made to make it easy to backport logic. So do you just plug something back in, see what breaks,...

You should contact Mike Roberts with detailed questions.


Off topic a bit, but maybe relevant to the OP. Is Mike still working on TADS at all? I noticed that Graham Nelson (on the Inform side) seems to be almost entirely absent. I haven't seen much from Mike at all for a couple of years.
