Hello, I am having some trouble with NPC conversations. I can easily ask about something, and tell them about something, but I can’t work out how to just tell them something. What if you want a reply when the player types 'say hello to…" that isn’t something you can tell about or ask about. Can anyone help me?
Probably the best thing you can do is check out Eric Eve’s Conversation extensions–there are quite a number of them, for various degrees of conversation needs in an IF. I frequently use Epistemology and Conversation Framework. The documentation that goes with them is pretty good, and will help you to decide if that extension is the right one for what you want (I think it includes protocols for greetings, etc).
Thank you, I’ll check that out.
