I'd like to request Tailored Room Description, which isn't listed on the I7 website any more.

It uses Room Description Control, which in turn uses Plurality, which is obsolete and crashes the compiler, so I'm guessing this is an extension that hasn't been used or requested in quite a while.

I updated Tailored Room Description and Room Description Control for Counterfeit Monkey. The current version of Tailored Room Description in the Counterfeit Monkey git repository requires (an updated) Large Game Speedup, but this and this should work without it.

Just let me know if they cause any trouble. Otherwise I'll upload them to i7/extensions.

Hi,

I'm working on a game for the if-comp, a translation of a recent game. The thing is, in Spanish, I used Quip-Based Conversation by Michael Martin, and worked very fine. But that extension just doesn't compile in English in the last version of Inform 7 6M62.

I've seen other conversation extensions, but none seems to fit the simple CYOA model I need, a-la Photopia.

Any idea? or help?

Thanks.

Ruber Eaglenest.

I can get Quip-Based Conversation to compile; do you have version 5 of Quip-Based Conversation, and version 10 of Reactable Quips? (If not, I can try to find them, though I might not have much time today.)

Thanks!

It could be that the problem is in Reactable Quips and not in Quip-based conversation. I don't know.

Hmm, I tried the examples in those extensions and they compiled, though I did get a run-time error for one of the Reactable Quips examples. But I haven't checked to see that my versions are exactly the same. Have you tried compiling the examples?

Weird. Yes, I've tried those. My I7 version is 6M62.

Problem. In 'Table of Ask Results' , column 1 (NPC), the entry 'guard' (row 2) is a genuine, non-blank entry: it's a specific value. That's fine, of course - the whole idea of a table is to contain values - but this is a column which already contains a name of a kind: 'a person' .

Ummm maybe the extension was badly imported and the tabs and rows are wrongly spaced? hmmm

Did you by any chance copy-paste the extension code from the documentation instead of hitting the "import" button next to the extension title? I think copy-pasting tends to mess the tabs up.

That said, that example was the one where I got the run-time errors (which I haven't been able to track down).
