Well, I've complained that people here aren't playing. So, I decided to put some time aside and play. I assume others have been doing the same. :bravo:

The first couple of things that come to mind for me are:

1.) ADRIFT 5 is a huge change from v4, and it being free now is a big deal. How many potential new authors are even aware of these things? At the ifwiki, unless they scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to see the single line about v5 being fully available, the first thing anyone's going to see is "While ADRIFT games can be played for free, the latest version of the ADRIFT Generator, version 4.0 is shareware and costs $17 to register. (If you do not register ADRIFT 4.0 it is limited to: 10 rooms, 25 objects, 25 tasks, 5 events, 3 characters, 2 roomgroups, 10 synonyms, and 5 variables)."


This, at least, is now fixed. That whole article really needs to be cleaned up, however, by someone a little more knowledgeable in modern ADRIFT developments than I.
