Game Size Limitations

Good evening all !

Picked up an old project that I’ve been working on and wondering about size limitations for the game.

The version of Inform I have installed is Inform 7 build 6G60 (I6/v6.32 lib 6/12N) SD. For some reason the latest version is not playing ball - I’ll have to look at that later.

When I release a game for testing, the .ULX comes in at 728KB.

Is there a way I can see how much space I have available within the application to play with in terms of game size ?

I’d like to know how near I am towards the upper limit of the game creation.

Thank you.

Glulx story files can be up to 2GB or 4GB (I can’t remember which.) No one has ever gotten close, the biggest are only 10-20MB. So you don’t need to worry.

There was a lot of language change between 6G60 and 6L02 (and some, but relatively little, since). See Working notes on updating extensions for Inform 6L02, Compilation problems with 6L02, and the Changelog for details.
