Hello. For my TADS 3 game, I initially included a hint system & menus for the “Amusing” option. I initially compiled it for the traditional UI (thinking that it’d be easier), & everything worked fine. However, upon trying to port it over to the web UI, none of the menus work anymore. Instead, the game simply returns an error message saying:
“The server sent an incorrectly formatted response. This can be caused by a garbled network transmission, or by a bug in the story. If the story otherwise seems to be running properly, you can ignore this error. If the story isn’t responding or is acting strangely, it might help to reload this page.”
When I click “show details,” I get this:
"9:51:03 AM | View Details
Request ID: 8
HTTP Status: 200 OK
I have now gotten rid of the custom menus but retained the hint system & now always get the above result. I’m thinking it has something to do with the game trying to load a new window for the menu. Everything originally worked perfectly fine when using the traditional UI but porting to web UI now leads to this error. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
My game appears in the IF Archive under the indexing if-archive/games/tads/wolfenschtein_WebUI.t3. The IF database page for it is here: ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=9pp2nh5axfys4qsa
I can attach the .t3 & .t3m files, if seeing them would help.
