|Priority||normal||Severity||mild||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001878: Confusing error message about fixed in place carried items|
|Description||I am trying to do something like you have no tea in Hitchhiker's Guide. I can do this another way, but it worked in a previous version of inform 7 and the error message is a bit confusing when it refers to a different line. In a complex game this could be far from where the problem occurs.|
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
item is fixed in place. yourself carries the item. Example is a room.
|Additional Information||Inform 7 build 6M62 has started.|
I've now read your source text, which is 13 words long.
I've also read Standard Rules by Graham Nelson, which is 42655 words long.
I've also read English Language by Graham Nelson, which is 2297 words long.
>--> You wrote 'Example is a room' (source text, line 3), but in another
sentence 'item is fixed in place' (source text, line 1): but this looks
like a contradiction, because the same property seems to be being set in
each of these sentences, but with a different outcome.
Inform 7 has finished.
Compiler finished with code 1
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(cosmetic) Error message is badly worded|
This wouldn't be a way to implement "no tea" even if it compiled. The fixed-in-place property will not prevent the player from dropping the item, only from taking it.
|Same problem occurs with a fixed-in-place, worn item.|
