ADRIFT not recognising "All"

Postby Lazzah » Mon Aug 14, 2017 5:46 am

Hi all,

While working on my latest game over the weekend, I did something which has stopped the game recognising the word "ALL", as in GET ALL. I was messing about with the general TAKE OBJECTS (PARENT TASK) - OK, I know I shouldn't have been - and then when I ran the game it wouldn't work properly.

I put the task back to it's original state but it still won't recognise "All".

Can anyone think of a reason this has happened?

BTW I have reverted to an earlier game file in which "all" is recognised, but I have lost all the work I did on the game over the weekend. It can obviously be replaced but such a pain to do when you cannot copy tasks between game files, even between different copies of the same game.

Thanks. :Thanks:

Do you have a before & after version? I have some tools that can compare the two.

Hi RM,

I have now finished adding everything that I needed to, everything works fine so I rest the matter there. I just wondered if this had happened to anyone else.

Even if you managed to get everything working, it could still be useful to know what happened.

One possibility is that the %objects% (plural) reference in the command was changed to %object% (singular).

No, not that, I checked the command line.
