Dannii;

I tried running it with the "Web Inspector" open (as Juhana had done), when I initiated the link to play it in the browser. It was a bit slow to start up, but it did load in Safari v7, BUT only when the "Web Inspector" was open. I also noted that the web inspector showed that the dropbox site seemed to have added some .js code that has no place in the adventure. Note that previous dropbox hosted adventures on the older version platform were also reported to be a bit unpredictable with Safari.

This is getting stranger by the minute...

Any ideas???

I'm on linux and I've put the latest (extracted) vorple-inform7-template.zip into ~/Inform/Templates

With Inform 6G60 I could use the Vorple interpreter, but now with 6L it says:
"On this Release, I tried to use the 'vorple' template, but couldn't find a copy of it anywhere."

Where am I supposed to extract it?

[edit] Ok I found it: I wrote "vorple" instead of "Vorple", now it's working. Also we can put the template into game.materials/Templates


Btw, my z8 game is 490 kb, so it's close to the z8 limit. Will Vorple soon be available for glulx as well?

I feel like whenever I encounter this level of failure googling something, it usually means the answer is incredibly obvious, but where would today's modern woman save a .js file if she wanted Inform to find it and stop throwing errors?

ETA: If the answer is "right there bare naked in the materials folder," then I've got a different problem of some kind.
EATA: Never mind, I am having a different problem of this kind.

I didn't find any notice here yet, so I'll like to ask: has anyone tried to make Vorple work with (older) I6 projects? Is it *possible*? I've played around with it, but did encounter some "communication" problem between z-machine and vorple. I think it has something to do with the vorple startup routine, but since there is no way to debug, I can only guess.

Hi!
I tried to use vorple, but without sucess.
Code:
"Vorple 1" by sarganar

Include Vorple by Juhana Leinonen.
Release along with the "vorple" interpreter.

Hall is a room. "Hello man."


The story compiles fine inside the IDE. But the online game produced by Release button never load in my Chrome (ver. 40). I use win I7 over a win7.

The Chrome javascript console sets:
Code:
Invalid JavaScript: vorple.parser.setVorpleStory()                    interpreter/zvm.min.js:13 
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'length' of undefined
Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'top' of null                      vorple.min.js:37


Any idea?

I think Vorple is supposed to be capitalized when you're using it as the interpreter name. I could imagine a scenario where it would crash if you don't do that, not sure if it's actually the problem.

I have my own issues- I opened a github issue about it, but does anyone even know if Vorple is being actively developed?

Here's my story-

"Test"

Include Vorple Multimedia by Juhana Leinonen.
Include Vorple by Juhana Leinonen.
Include Vorple Tooltips by Juhana Leinonen.
Include Vorple Hyperlinks by Juhana Leinonen.
Include Vorple Notifications by Juhana Leinonen.
Include Vorple Screen Effects by Juhana Leinonen.
Release along with the "Vorple" interpreter.

An Open Field is a room. "Nearby is a small cave. The muddy earth slopes downward toward a cliff to the south. To the east, there is a forest, and beyond that, a massive castle.

Use the command 'win' to end the game."

Winning is an action applying to nothing. Understand "win" as winning.
After winning:
say "Pausing..";
pause the game.

When I run the win command in Chrome 40.0.2214.111 m, I receive a JavaScript error: Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'split' of undefined.

Does anyone have an idea for a workaround or know what I can do about this? Is there a vorple alternative that gets me all the same stuff but is being maintained?

Thanks for the report, but unfortunately I'm not able to diagnose or fix the problem right now; hopefully someone else can find a workaround.

I've got an error trying to compile a test of the tooltips extension.

I've got this;
--------------
Include Vorple Tooltips by Juhana Leinonen.
Release along with the "Vorple" interpreter.

Instead of examining the rucksack when the rucksack is open:
say "Inside the ";
place an element called "rucksack-open" reading "rucksack";
say "is an old flask which is filled to the brim with water";
display a tooltip "You'll need something to carry your stuff in" on the element "rucksack-closed" in 2 seconds;
say ".";
--------------

And the error that comes back is this;
-----------
You wrote 'place an element called "rucksack-open" reading "rucksack"' : but this is a phrase which I don't recognise, possibly because it is one you meant to define but never got round to, or because the wording is wrong (see the Phrasebook section of the Index to check). Alternatively, it may be that the text immediately previous to this was a definition whose ending, normally a full stop, is missing?
-----------

Any ideas? The vorpal extensions are loaded and I've tried adding them from the public library and manually.

Olly

There's an error in the documentation, that line should be

Code:
place an inline element called "rucksack-open" reading "rucksack";


(Also note that you create an element called "rucksack-open" and try to add a tooltip to an element called "rucksack-closed".)
