XTads is a TADS 2/3 interpreter for macOS (version 10.12 Sierra or higher). It’s a GUI application, with native macOS look and feel. Game output is text-only, with limited/simplistic support for HTML.
New in this version:
- The “Open for Testing” dialog now lets you start a game from the position in a save file (T3 only).
- Logging, which gives you a way to observe how XTads operates internally, how it interacts with macOS and the TADS VMs, and (to a lesser degree) how games (mis)behave. While logging is mainly useful for working on XTads itself, game developers should also benefit from it. For more details, see Game development features.
- Misc. UI tweaks.
- Misc. bug fixes.
- NB! XTads now requires macOS 10.12 Sierra or higher.
XTads is ever a work in progress. Bug reports and suggestions are more than welcome – see contact info in the program’s About panel.
