Go! not working in Inform 7 on MacOS Sierra


I just installed the latest Inform on MacOS 10.12.1 and it all seems to work except the most critical part: the Story panel.

Go! button successfully compiles the source and opens the Story panel, but it’s just a blank page with nowhere to enter commands.

My source text is very simple but I’m expecting to at least see the description of the first room and a command prompt.

In that thread, this post has instructions for how to build a working version. (I haven’t done this myself–still on El Capitan–but I thought you might appreciate a real quick answer! Someone more informed (oops) might chime in soon.)


Thanks, should’ve searched first. :blush:

Will wait for a fix to be released, looks like the bug is resolved.

Have started playing with Twine instead for now.

I don’t know what’s going on with the release process, but I downloaded the code and compiled it.



Thank you Zarf, this fixed it for me.
