I've noticed you've been converting games written for your CAT system to TAB; pretty good idea, honestly.

As far as beta testing goes, how familiar should I be with the originals, if at all?

Hi Gio - Yes. Seemed a shame that those games made on the older CAT system were not running properly on modern Windows; so started converting some of them. I've not changed much at all in the rewrite. Text and coding (puzzles) are basically the same as the originals.
The TAB program is a kind of PAW/Quill replicant. A retro text adventure creator based on same principles as popular 80's 8-bit utes like QUILL, PAW or GAC - and works on Windows XP and above.
