What is TADS Messagestyle?

In the Tads3 documentation is an option mentioned: -D MESSAGESTYLE=neu. What does it mean? (Searching google and this forum didn’t help me.)

The comment in en_us.th states “MESSAGESTYLE this selects the style to use for library messages: use “neu” for the standard “neutral narrator” style”

As far as I can see, the effect is to use the file msg_neu.t for the library messages in adv3.


Makes me wonder why there hasn’t been more done with this feature. I’m sure I could find reasons to offer at least one other message style.
