|0000638||Core Inform||Assertions and creations||public||2011-04-08 10:11||2014-05-07 07:33|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||6L02|
|Summary||0000638: Defining facts about player before defining who player is discards those facts|
|Description||Except for when it comes to ordering rules, I think the compiler should ideally be as agnostic to the order of lines in the source text as possible.|
In this case, though, this seems even more clearly a bug: the author has defined certain facts about the player character, whom NI made assumptions about; on discovering that its assumptions were incorrect, rather than reevaluating, it simply discards those facts.
The watch, for example, is worn by "your former self", which surely should never happen unless the player becomes a different actor as the result of a "now" phrase during play.
|Minimal Source Text To Reproduce|
Park is a room. A blanket is an enterable supporter in the Park. The player wears a watch. The player is on the blanket. The player is a woman called Terry.
You can see a blanket here.
You are carrying nothing.
watch - thing
location: worn by your former self out of play
singular-named, improper-named; unlit, inedible, portable, wearable
printed name: "watch"
printed plural name: none
indefinite article: none
initial appearance: none
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Effect||(serious/mild) Game compiles but misbehaves|
|Surprisingly, it's a duplicate of 0001142; fixed.|
