alanide009Today the AlanIDE was released with some updates:

  • a toolbar and menu with the expected "Save" and "New" entries
  • the splash screen shows the actual version
  • the (unused and confusing) interpreter preference setting was removed
  • generated game files show up automatically in the navigator so that you can click on them to start the interpreter (as set in your operating system, same as when you double click on an .a3c-file in the file system)
  • updates over internet

Anssi Räisänen finished 13th out of almost 40 entries in the annual IFCOMP. "Ted Paladin and the Case of the Abandoned House" was developed using Alan v3 and the extensive library provided by Anssi himself. The game introduces a novel dimension of discovery.

What They Say

"I-F languages are like vehicles ... using Alan is like driving a zippy, easy-handling little electric town car -- it's often all you need to take you where you want to go."
