Old game not playing nicely

Post by J. J. Guest »

Hello everyone. Long time no see.

I've just discovered a Radio K video review of my old game, To Hell in a Hamper, which I originally wrote in Adrift 4 and ported over to TADS 2 shortly afterwards.
Towards the end Adam Cadre mentions some bugs in the Adrift version that certainly weren't there when I wrote it. Could he be trying to play an Adrift 4 game on an Adrift 5 interpreter or something silly like that?

I haven't used Adrift in a while so it's all a bit of a mystery. If it doesn't play any more I'll have to take the Adrift version down which would be sad as it was the original.

Any thoughts?

Does he show gameplay where the bug happens or does he just mention it without showing what interpreter he was using? Gargoyle should still handle Adrift 4 games, unless I am misremembering that. When was this video review made? Do you have a link to the video?

The best way is probably ask Adam which version of Runner he was using.

Yep. He was playing an Adrift 4 game in the Adrift 5 runner.
