    Releasing your story presents a small difficulty in that various interpreters will append different extensions to the file. An interpreter may ignore a "config.glkdata" file and instead create a blank "config" file in the same directory. Since the Glulx VM is not allowed to know the exact filename of an external file, this is not directly fixable: but one solution is to release duplicate config files in the two most common formats (a file ending with ".glkdata" and another with no extension should cover most platforms) and instruct users to edit whichever one their platform makes use of.
