I’ve been cooking up a work of IF in a homebrew system (because I have a bad case of NIH Syndrome), but I’ve decided I should try out the mainstream authoring systems. I’ve played a bit with Inform 7 and now I’m looking at TADS 3.
Working through the first few steps in the TADS 3 Quick Start Guide, I clicked Create! on the new project wizard, and TADS Workbench crashed. I poked around and found the exact symptoms in this bug report: bugdb.tads.org/view.php?id=243
Since that report has been around for quite a while, I figure there must be some way to work around the problem. Any clues for a newbie?
