Alternative Description Bug?

Postby Lazzah » Sat Jun 22, 2013 6:03 am

Hi all. It's nearly the end of June and it is wet and windy in London! :cry:

I have been defining the location texts for some castle dungeons, there are 6 cells, two in each location north and south. I defined four alternative descriptions for each location depending on whether the doors are open or closed, i.e. both closed/north open - south closed/north closed - south open/both open.

I used restrictions for each alternative text based on the open status property of each door, e.g. "Property Open Status for Object Cell Door 3 must be closed". Using these restrictions, however, none of the alternative texts would display at all.

I have now altered the restrictions and based them on the status of the object, e.g. Object Cell Door 3 must be in state Closed". Lo and behold, the alternative texts now display as they should do.

Is this a bug? If so, is it known about? If not, shall I post a bug report?
