  • Section: Changing action messages

    GLAM includes a number of actions (most of them actually reimplementations of actions defined in Automap), all of which may print both success and failure messages. These messages can be changed by writing new "to say" phrases for them. For example, to change the message that is printed when the map window is opened, write this:

        To say map-window-open:
            say "You give some thought to the lay of the land, calling up a mental image of all you have seen so far."

    Note that any such phrases you include in your story file must be placed *after* the line that includes Glimmr Automap.

    Here is a list of all of the message names and their default texts:

        only-one-graphical-zoom-level
            "Zooming the map is not allowed.[run paragraph on][line break]"
        zoomed-in
            "Zoomed in to level [current zoom level of the map-renderer] of [number of entries of the zoom-level set of the associated tileset of the map-renderer]."
        zoomed-out
            "Zoomed out to level [current zoom level of the map-renderer] of [number of entries of the zoom-level set of the associated tileset of the map-renderer]."
        zoomed-in-or-out
            "Zoomed to level [current zoom level of the map-renderer] of [number of entries of the zoom-level set of the associated tileset of the map-renderer]."
        map-window-open
            "Map window open."
