Making electronics such as computers

Postby ElliotM » Sat Sep 08, 2012 12:49 am

Here is a short implementation of how I would do a computer. "Using" the computer turns it on automatically, though general tasks were included for "turning on" the computer manually.

The demo (as of version 5.0.24) also revealed a bug with Object1.Description and Object1.ReadText. I included one or the other at different times in earlier tests in the room description, but the array variable I was using to control the monitor output text is un-replaced in the room description, but working just fine in the object description.

Demonstrates turning on or off. Also demonstrates using general tasks and specific tasks. Computer is not really functional aside from being turned on or off and displaying a welcome message.
