What's New with Addventure
What do you know? After over a year, there is a surprising change.
27 Aug 1996
It seems kinda silly to have a "what's new" page for something that
shouldn't change much anymore... but... for some history...
- The game now uses a basic database system to store each room,
instead of our prevoid "individual file" method. This should
speed up some rooms.
- Please let us know if there are any problems.

- Welcome to our new home.
- This game is currently "read only" - you can not create new rooms.
- After far too long a delay, Addventure 2.0 is entering final testing
and should be available for play RRRRSN.
- For a sneak peak, see the preview.
- Netcom (and maybe Prodigy) users: I have made some changes to the
home page so you should have no problems playing now. Let me
know if I'm wrong.
- I've had some discussions with
Netcom tech support on this issue. Thanks for their help and,
more importantly, the people who have sent me email trying to
resolve this issue.
- Addventure 2.0 is (finally) entering Beta test. Expect it within
- Feel free to send us
feedback about the game. This link is also available from
the main page.
- Thanks to the server administrators, who now do usage statistics
runs on just the Addventure pages, the results from the past few
weeks are now available from the main screen.
- A couple of small cosmetic changes to the home page.
- Addventure 2.0 entered alpha testing today. The new features will be
announced later. Suffice it to say that this is a warning that
the original game will be ended soon (but not destroyed).
- Source code for Addventure and the main library it uses to read fields
from forms is now available.
- Updated the Addventure programs to version 1.2
- Added the wiperoom program to help clean out rooms
- Began a campaign to clean-up some dead-end rooms that had nothing
in them. (Or at least no choices and it clearly wasn't an ending.)
- Updated the Addventure programs to version 1.1
- Less likely that "dead-end" rooms can be created.
All rooms created must have at least one choice and new "description"
pages have a way to reject the room.
- The text area may now be arbitrarily large
- The "click here for entry" link now tries to trick smart browsers
that do document caching.
