Sorry about the late response. CSS rules work similar to I7 rules in that the most specific rule applies. The rule on the body element applies if there isn't anything more specific. To target the prompt you can do this: body, #lineinput-prefix, #lineinput-field { color: black; background-color: #ffe...

Could you post the I7 code and the CSS file? If it doesn't work, the most likely explanation is that there are problems with the CSS rules. You can also validate the CSS file at https://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/#validate_by_upload.

A common approach is to leave the punctuation outside the conditions so that the text never ends in punctuation, especially when using inline conditions: After examining a thing: say "This line of text appears for all examined objects[if the noun is a container]. This line appears because [the ...

You'll need to tell Inform when you want to display the picture. If you want to show it when the game starts: When play begins: display the Figure of Shack. Or if you want to show it with the room description: Before looking when the location is the Verandah: display the Figure of Shack.

The order of action rulebooks is before – instead – check – carry out – after – report, and the can't pull what's fixed in place is a check rule. "First" only affects ordering within the same rulebook ("first carry out" happens before all other carry out rules but not before chec...

You could make synonyms with to decide phrases: To decide which thing is three-o'clock-high: decide on a three o'clock high. To decide which thing is no-tea: decide on a no tea. Note that the "a" is necessary for it to compile, just like in matt w's code. I'm pretty sure that's unintention...

That should also get fixed later, but here's a workaround: To execute parser command (cmd - text) in (s - real number) seconds: execute JavaScript command "setTimeout(function() {var userCmd=$('#lineinput-field').val(); vorple.prompt.queueCommand('[escaped cmd]', true); setTimeout(function() {$...
