Using Display Once function in Location's Long Description

Postby Laced Fish » Sun Mar 05, 2017 2:28 pm

The neatest solution to a situation in my adventure is to have a different long description for a location for the first time you enter the location, which I thought I could achieve with ticking Only Display Once box along with [if relevant] Return to Default. I've tried many different versions of using this on Default Description or on Alternative Descriptions but none have worked.. Any suggestions??

You probably haven't set the location restriction on the alternative descriptions to "start description with".
