XTads pre-beta 10 is out

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.
