Yesterday I was told about a new bug in the upcoming 6/12 Library. I’m having a hard time understanding what went wrong. Please give me a hand here. The new bug will cause any interaction with a non-existant object (or a misspelled object) to be assumed to refer instead to the player-character. I tracked the bug down to where it first manifested, but from there I’m at a loss to explain why it’s happening. Please take a look at inform7.com/mantis/view.php?id=1348
It looks like the referred-to patch added the line “with name,” to the player object. This will create a name property with one value, 0, and I bet that’s the problem. (Any word not in the dictionary is represented by 0.)
That was it. Thanks.
