PostSubject: The Long noun   Tue Jul 22, 2008 9:29 am

Hi there, when I create an object with a Long noun, example 'blueŻmats/mats', only the 'mats' input works. If I type 'examine blue mats' then it does not work. Is this because the input for long nouns is not completed in the player?

Yes it is working.

Maybe you forgot a / characters?

Correct Vocabulary Object Noun Syntax:
/blueŻmats/mats/


Best wishes,

Hmm this is the output I get:

Please tell me your next command.
>x mats

It's some of those blue colored foam mats used to pad the floor for your protection.

Tell me what to do next please.
>x blue mats

Sorry. I do not understand "blue" as a noun in that sentence.


What i've done is created a NOUN under #17 "/blueŻmats/mats/" as this is a background object.

Then under RESPONSES:
[start]examine blueŻmats#room=1[acts]cmessIt's some of those blue colored foam mats used to pad the floor for your protection.[end]

Dunno what i've done wrong?

Hi Ringhawk,

Aha! You've stumbled on to fact that I have not yet created facility to use long noun for ordinary nouns or character nouns. Only Object nouns!

From your initial post I thought you were using an Object made in Object Editor.

Anyhow, I had meant to update TAB to include the other types of nouns too - until I got sidetracked with other code...

Sorry for trouble.

I will make it compatible with all types of nouns. In the meantime your code is quite correct; just use 'examine mats' when testing until next release.

Thanks,
catventure

UPDATE:
Implemented for next release.

Thanks alot for the info. I thought there was something missing there. TAB is the easiest IF program I have come across. I have tried TADS, INFORM 7 others but never can get the full hang of them. ADRIFT is probably the most similar to TAB and I have found it easy. But I like the things your adding keep up the good work.

Hi Ringhawk,

Thanks for your comments. I have INFORM 7 and ADRIFT also.
I'm glad you think TAB an "easy" creator to use.

Phil.
