Beta 1 was never made available to the public.

  • FEATURE: Improved the tracing messages in the debugger
  • BUGFIX: WinArun did not follow preferences for window colouring and fonts
  • BUGFIX: WinArun did not find sound and image resources when started in another directory
  • BUGFIX: a pronoun referencing an instance from a previous command that is no longer available, the message was non-optimal
  • Clearified licensing, read COPYING
  • Upgraded WinGLK to 1.39
  • FEATURE: Entered is now inherited and nested in an accumulative way.
  • FEATURE: Entered is now executed before Description.
  • FEATURE: 'Can' is now added to 'Is', 'Has' and 'Are' for starting attribute declarations.
  • FEATURE: Instances listed after 'except'/'but' in player input using 'all', are now handled in the same way as other syntax parameters.
  • BUGFIX: The location of a instance that is 'nowhere' could cause the interpreter to crash.
  • BUGFIX: The pronoun handling could get confused if the player command referred to multiple instance with the same pronoun.
  • BUGFIX: An UNDO command directly after a QUIT where the player choose to UNDO crashed.
  • BUGFIX: The compiler could crash if a reference attribute was not defined in the parent class.
  • BUGFIX: Aggregating over an attribute might crash the interpreter if the aggregating set contained containers taking instances not having the attribute.
  • BUGFIX: Entered did not always set This correctly.
  • BUGFIX: 'except' without preceeding parameters caused the interpreter to crash.
  • BUGFIX: A problem with literals caused the dial-sample to crash.
  • BUGFIX: Forward delete now works on MacOSX (and probably Linux too).
  • BUGFIX: Some cases of disambiguating player references did not work as expected.
  • BUG: "undo" as a response to "Quit?" undid the wrong command in some cases.
  • BUG: verb bodies in outer nested locations did not get executed.
  • Prohibited locating actors into containers.
  • BUG: aggregating over things in restricted containers did not consider the class restriction so did not find e.g. attributes defined for that class.
  • BUG: In loops with an "In <CONTAINER>" filter this did not restrict the class to the classes taken by the container.
  • BUG: Isa expressions and loop filters did a general lookup for the class name, so would find e.g. default syntax parameters.
  • BUG: WinArun could try to restore from an empty file reference in some cases.
  • BUG: If a multiple or omnipotent indicator was used for one syntax which shared a common prefix (starting with the same verb e.g.) would sometimes miss the indicator. Changed this to make an indicator implicitly apply to all syntaxes with the same prefix.
  • Extensive refactoring of the sources and Makefiles.
  • Removed support for the Metrowerks (old Mac) compiler.

  • Bug: UNDO directly after restart would crash.
  • Bug: scheduled events imminent to run would get lost after undo (typically the ones scheduled After 0)
  • Bug: checksum calculation to work with pre-alpha5 games

What They Say

"I think its most attractive quality is simplicity, a quality that no other adventure creation language possesses."
