I’ve been learning the basics of Inform 7 at but one thing which seems like it should be easy is greeting someone. Inform has native support for asking about something or even answering, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to just program a basic response to hello. Something like

After saying “Hello” to Marty, say “Howdy.”


You should try the above extension. :mrgreen:

To get the basic response, without any extensions:

Instead of answering Marty that "hello":
	say "'Howdy.'"

You’d know it’s the answering action (rather than “saying” or some other term) by using the “actions” debug command.
