Hi. I was going to introduce myself, but then I discovered that I already did that. 9 years ago. Ironically, I was going to post the exact same hello.
Longest hiatus ever? Actually, that describes exactly my relationship with Inform 7 and coding my epic IF work-in-progress: Looong breaks then bursts of (frustrated) activity (for over 20 years through delphi to Inform 6 to Inform 7. And I’m still working on just ONE room. But what a room it is… )
Inform 7 is giving me much less fits now and I finally “get it”. But I do have questions - and I’m almost experienced enough to start giving some decent answers too.
So I ask the community, which is preferred: To clutter up the message board by asking several questions serially? Or to clutter up one post with a bunch of unrelated questions?
BTW my questions are fairly similar, but much less esoteric than the one I asked 9 years ago. My OCD has relaxed somewhat.
I have a sample story file that illustrates all my current questions, though it is 235 lines long - including ample whitespace, and my questions are in comments. Is that ok to post that and y’all can just have at it, answering my questions as well as offering advice on improving syntax and and “style” ?
Or should I ask each question separately with a concise example code snippet?
