Re: IMPORTANT when changing libraries

So should the library setting be "Never Overwrite"? Probably a good idea. Unfortunately, you will then have to change that setting each time you create a new game from scratch. Or you could just import the library you want, using the Import feature. So when importing a library what happens to the d...

Re: Annual IF Comp 2020

That was an interesting review. I am curious to know just how different inform is different to Adrift in terms of general parser as the reviewer mentioned so that we can try and curb some of the differences by expanding some commands to cover what would normally work in Inform as the reviewer mentio...

Re: How do I create menus?

I understand now. But how does turning the active menu item to 0 allow for nested sub-menus? I would do that this way: Have variable x. Main menu, X =1, choice 1 sub-menu x= 2 and so on. Well think of it as an elevator when you are on say the top floor then the choices given to the player and their...

Re: ATTN NEWBS: For missing activation emails, ask in Discord!

...antscoff (or whatever Anthony goes by here) is also working on something which may be of major significance to the community when it's done, and he seems to be making lightning fast progress on it. Also, same thing I said in my last post, but for 2020 this time and this time it WILL happen. Can ...

Re: Events repeat when they shouldn't

If i follow you correctly another way you can also do this is create a System task and choose Run this task when Player enters Location and choose the location, then on the bottom left of the system task uncheck Task is Repeatable. However note, this task will not trigger if the player starts on the...

Re: How do I create menus?

I have created a demo for you to look at. The choices are a bit bland, no puzzle but its just a menu example.

Hope it helps.

Re: Am I doing this right?(Conversations...)

The basic rule of the thumb for using conversation is Tell and Ask both use keywords with a comma to separate them and no brackets, if you have similar keywords to another topic the topic that gets picked will be the one with most matches. The General conversation is for Say to Character commands an...

Re: <waitkey> and the online runner

I did not know about this, good to know. Hopefully it can be fixed as online play will be more common than ever before. But yes i guess we will have to be specific to tell the player to Click on the command line and press enter.

Re: Livingroom / living room ... Why?

Sorry a case of brain fade- you are right dining room. So i had to look this up on wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Living_room "The term "living room" is found initially in the decorating literature of the 1890s, where a living room is understood to be a reflection of the personality of the desig...

Re: Livingroom / living room ... Why?

Its funny how some words and phrases sound strange when you stop and think about it. I mean who came up with Living Room? Well you can call a bed room a sleeping room but you don't call a kitchen eating room. Family room makes sense, but we don't use that word here in New Zealand as we do with Livin...

Re: IFcomp "Play Online" button

Yes i agree the Open Adventure/Open Game in runner is confusing. I've had to make sure i mention this in my games so that player who want to resume a saved game can do so without much confusion. This needs to be simplified. To my memory, one has to run the original game and then Open game (thats two...

Re: ADRIFT 5 newcomer advice

When I tried to upload a new version of my game Die Feuerfaust, I found that instead of it replacing the current version on the ADRIFT site, it uploaded as a new game as it had a different IFID number to the existing game. As you said, you cannot change the IFID number of your game, but you CAN cha...

You should find those in the Quick Links dropdown at the top of the page.
Ah there go, thanks for that.
