When the game asks the player “Which do you mean, the abc or the xyz?” I don’t want it to refer to a certain item by its printed name (e.g. “abc”), but by something else (e.g. “def”). (At all other times, I’m happy with the printed name.) Elsewhere on this site, someone suggested using code like this:
Before printing the name of the abc while asking which do you mean: say “the def”.
However, that results in, “Which do you mean, the defabc or the xyz?”
I tried changing “Before” to “Instead of”, but that results in a Problem:
“You wrote ‘Instead of printing the name of the abc while asking which do you mean’, which seems to introduce a rule taking effect only ‘while asking which do you mean’. But this condition did not make sense, so I am unable to accept this rule.”
Can we make the game refer to something by different text when it asks the “which do you mean” question?
