Re: using the advanced expression funtion

ok...... I think I know why it wasn't (please notice the past term use of the verb!) working. What I did was start everything from scratch, put in the barest essentials, and of course, it worked. The problem is that the stuff that I had written before LOOKED exactly the same, but it wasn't reacting ...

Re: using the advanced expression funtion

ok, this is what I put in:

Type of action: Change variable

Change a_in to expression %A_in% * %B_in%

A_in starts out 1
and
B_in starts out as 3

The error that I get is:

"[bad Expr iable]Op Expr "


the error occurs when I "update" the window "edit a resultant action"

using the advanced expression funtion

I don't even know how to say things right. First, anywhere I could go to learn how to "set a variable to a value using an advanced expression?" Up to now, I have been changing the value of a variable when a task is done TO a specific number or BY a specific number. Can I change the value of a variab...

Re: 4.0 games

then why can I download some adventures but not others?


just opened up internet explorer and downloaded it. It still won't work with chrome, though. It's still weird to me, though, because I am able to download other adventures in chrome, but not The Dark River.

Re: 4.0 games

hmmm.....i'm on chrome but just did internet explorer. I tried "save target as" and " save link as." I know that I've downloaded adventures before....it wasn't this complicated.

just an idea..... make a task that runs off "if character comes across object" Restrictions: ( i'm assuming that you and the other person have to be in the same room)....so character has to be in the same room as player. make sure to set it to be a repeatable task. Have the task just show a message...
