I’m helping beta-test a game, and I encounter the following error:
“Run-time problem P12: Too many activities are going on at once.”
It happens in WinGlulxe, and in Gargoyle with both Glulxe and Git. I think it’s the latest of everything. I’ve tried no other interpreters, but believe it to be a problem in the game rather than the 'terp.
The author is trying to track down the problem, but isn’t too sure what might cause it. I suggested he post on rec.arts.int-fiction but figured I might as well poke around here on his behalf, just to see if anybody has a clue.
It happens after entering unrecognized commands. Maybe 15 or 20 commands that the game doesn’t understand (random words, attempts to log a comment, things like >sneeze which are totally unnecessary for the game, etc). I don’t know I7 at all, and so I can’t really suggest a solution.
