I was hoping to make FW work with Hybrid Choices, and I've tried several versions of the extension and the one in the GitHub that requires two more of (I think?) Dannii's extensions. I may have gotten it confused but if you can point me to a standalone working version of FW I'd be much obliged.

Yeah it's a little tricky at the moment because the dependency structure is changing, and they're not yet in the Public Library yet to make installing them all easy. I promise that eventually this reworking of the dependencies will be worth it! (The main reason is to make alternative extensions like Zarf's Unified Glulx Input play nicely together - currently they're just incompatible.)

You'll need these:

https://github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m ... 0Rules.i7x
https://github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m ... Events.i7x
https://github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m ... covery.i7x
https://github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m ... itions.i7x
https://github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m ... Points.i7x
https://github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m ... ffects.i7x
https://github.com/i7/extensions/blob/m ... indows.i7x

Hi

I'm trying to use the Location Images extension. I've downloaded it from the extension site and also the Simple Graphical Window extension and Glulx Entry Points extensions.

I get this error when running the game;
*************
In Section 4 - Inform 7 Wrappers for Defining Window and Colors in the extension Simple Graphical Window by Emily Short:

Problem. The sentence 'Graphics background color is a glulx color value that varies' appears to say two things are the same - I am reading 'Graphics background color' and 'glulx color value that varies' as two different things, and therefore it makes no sense to say that one is the other: it would be like saying that 'Clark Kent is Lex Luthor'. It would be all right if the second thing were the name of a kind, perhaps with properties: for instance 'Metropolis is a lighted room' says that something called Metropolis exists and that it is a 'room', which is a kind I know about, combined with a property called 'lighted' which I also know about.
*************

My extension list is attached.


Any ideas?

It looks like you are running version 8 of Simple Graphical Window. The latest version I see in the Public Library is version 9. Are you downloading extensions through the IDE?

If by extension site you mean inform7.com, that is not the first place I would recommend going to find an updated extension.

Thanks.

I've upgraded to 10/161003 from https://i7el.herokuapp.com/extensions/

Now I get this error.

Problem. You wrote 'change currently shown picture to the room illustration of the location' : 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?

oliverm, are you still running into problems with this, or did they get resolved when you deleted all your extensions and re-installed them from the Public Library via the IDE?

"change" is no longer a valid phrase in I7 - it's been like that for a few versions. Use "now the currently shown picture is the room illustration of the location".
