TADS 1 or TADS 2?

Were Deep Space Drifter (1988) and Ditch Day Drifter (1990) already written in TADS 2, or in the very first version of TADS? --Eriorg 17:28, 1 August 2006 (EST)

Good question. I suppose until we know for sure, those should just say TADS. I don't know how to tell the difference. (And as a side note, I should point out that, ideally, these listings are supposed to say which platforms a game can be played on, not which authoring system it was written in. For all I know, both TADS 1 and TADS 2 both target the same TADS virtual machine, and we should be putting TVM (or T3VM for TADS 3 games) everywhere instead. But that would confuse most casual readers, I think.) -- David Welbourn 20:39, 1 August 2006 (EST)
