Module Import Problem

Postby Lazzah » Mon Feb 17, 2020 11:45 am

Hi all,

I was importing folders saved as modules into my new game when I came across two problems.

First of all, when I import a module from an existing game into a new game, the name of the new game is changed to the name of the game the module was imported from.

Secondly, the whole of the text of the title page in the INTRODUCTION & END OF GAME of the existing game is imported to the title page of the new game. Luckily I hadn't yet fully programmed the title page of the new game so all I had to do was delete the imported text. However, it would replace the text if I had have done!

I have added a bug report at: http://www.adrift.co/bug/19216, please vote it up.

The .AMF file is a text file, so you can use a text editor to remove the sections that interfere with the game.
I described what to do in the wiki at http://wiki.adrift.co/Creating_Libraries_and_Modules#Preparing_the_Module
