Apologies for an extremely basic question but I can’t understand why I’m getting the following error:
Problem. You wrote ‘Before sitting on the jagged crag’, which seems to introduce a rule taking effect only ‘sitting on the jagged crag’. But this does not look like an action, since there is no sign of a participle ending ‘-ing’ (as in ‘taking the brick’, say) - which makes me think I have badly misunderstood what you intended.
from the following code:
Before sitting on the jagged crag:
if the player does not carry the paper scrap:
now the player carries the paper scrap;
say "As you sit down, you notice a scrap of paper and pick it up."
Surely the ‘sitting’ provides the ‘ing’ ending that Inform says it cannot find? Please could anyone explain what’s going wrong here as I can’t seem to figure it out?
