Hi,

Update today released:

22 Jan 2009 (Release 49.1)
=========
*FIX. "anyobjsroom" CONDITION now correctly disregards static objects that may be present in the room.

*IMPROVED. The "again/g" command now works with last found Character speech command eg:
>say to smith,inventory

Smith owns:
nothing at all.

>g

Smith owns:
nothing at all.

*FIX. Speech command input format: "<character>," now responding correctly after previous input commands

*FIX. Minor fix to Character Movement Routine causing occasional crash on game startup

*FIX. Adjustment to turnscount re: "replay", "restart", & "gameover" ACTIONS.
Important: These actions must be the LAST action and only used in a RESPONSE or SCRIPT2 coding entry.

Regards,
Phil.

Hello,

Another update today with fixes.

27 Jan 2009 (Release 49.2)
=========
*FIX. Adventure text now auto-adjusts to a window resize operation. Text is scrolled up to current text caret position (vertical scrollbar moved to bottom)

*FIX. "jump" command faulty: now working OK

*NEW "updatecommand" ACTION. Constructs a new input command based on the parser variables that have been changed in an entry and also changes string variables vsyn, n1syn, psyn and n2syn to be corresponding KEYWORDs (if necessary). Can be used before the "jump" action to change an input command so that the new command can be processed from the jump label... eg: ....#updatecommand#jumpSOMECODE[end]

An example of "updatecommand" action in use is in "char_commands_demo.tab" Response entries (giving object to character)

*FIX. <F1> Command History Scroller Improved to skip past empty array strings

*FIX. Carried items now correctly saved/restored in a Load/Save Game Position

NOTE: Do not use previous savedgame positions from earlier releases in this new version!!!

Cheers,
Phil.
