Well, AD&D = D&D2 and after that they have gone back to just naming it D&D3, but I'm sure you know that Agreed that it's a tad more intuitive with the attack bonus system, but the basic problem remains at least for me. Since those other systems are pretty much dead concerning a 'mass' market these days, it'll remain a dream to see a computer game based on them though.
