I’m enjoying playing with this a lot so far! I haven’t properly worked on my own IF for months, and I’m having a lot of fun making something quick and silly with Gruescript, even though I haven’t got as far as writing instructions and commands yet. Thanks for making this!
I’ve found a couple of things which are either bugs or things I’m doing wrong. Certain keywords listed in the documentation don’t seem to work for me, even when I copy the examples directly. I’m using the most recent version (2021-08-19), downloaded to a local file and run through Opera 78.0.4093.147. I’ve also checked in Chrome 92.0.4515.159 and I’ve tried the online version run from itch.io.
The “prop” keyword doesn’t work for me. This game with a room property copied from the documentation fails to build with the error message “error on line 9: didn’t understand “prop” in room declaration”:
room test_chamber You are in a test chamber.
prop wall_colour red
Custom directions build, but they don’t appear in the list of exits so you can’t use them. This game (copied from the documentation) builds successfully, but “turnwise” and “widdershins” don’t appear. If I use “north” and “south” instead, those exits appear even though the rooms they lead to don’t exist, so I think the problem is with the directions themselves?
room brass_bridge You’re on the Brass Bridge.
dir widdershins patricians_palace
dir turnwise broad_way
