I am new to Inform, but I read on this forum somewhere ‘install an extension rather than trying to re-invent the wheel’. Good advice I thought.
So I downloaded Postures by Emily Short, because I have a sofa I would like to be able to sit on.
I installed the extension into Inform and then looked at the documentation for the extension. It says "Each piece of furniture comes with a range of possible postures, which can be expressed with the posture-permission relation: as in
The bunk bed allows seated and reclining."
So into the Source I entered “The sofa allows seated and reclining.” and I get the error message
“Problem. You wrote ‘the sofa allows seated and reclining’ : but I can’t find a verb here that I know how to deal with, so I am ignoring this sentence altogether.”
What gives? I tried defining the sofa as a piece of furniture, but that just creates more errors! There’s nothing in the extension’s documentation about how to define furniture or anything or am I missing something basic?
