If you’re reading this topic, you probably know what Numbered Disambig. Choices (NDC) does.
Approaches is Emily Short’s extension that lets players type ‘go to (so and so)’ and, if they’ve visited so-and-so before, they’ll path-find their way there.
I found that NDC doesn’t print the choice numbers when Inform needs to ask the player which of a number of similar sounding locations they want to go to on behalf of Approaches. And I would like it to do this. However, it does print the numbers (with Approaches in the project) in other contexts.
The attached demo shows that NDC will print the choice numbers when asking about whether to drop a ‘green apple’ or ‘green pear’, but doesn’t print numbers when asking about whether to go to a ‘big hall’ or a ‘big corridor’.
That said, the extension has numbered these choices behind the scenes, because you can still respond by typing ‘1’ to go to the big hall.
Include Numbered Disambiguation Choices by Aaron Reed. Include Approaches by Emily Short. The player is in entryway. the player carries green apple and green pear. Big hall is north of entryway. Big corridor is south of entryway. Test me with “n/s/s/n/drop green/1/go to big/1”.
