I suck at naming things. I tried, but all the other names i tried giving the topic were too long or worse than goldilocks.
Besides, the goldilocks termis used for things that are “just right”. Like planets that could support life.
Also, the mistake thing won’t be able to work, i fear, as i’m building a password thing. I’m pasting it before the actual when play begins with a first when play begins, however, after checking the password it wont continue the story anymore
i’m such an idiot.
should have named it password pre-start or something.
OKAY i’m more awake now.
What I wanna do is secure my beta versions with a special section - a section that, once deleted, will make the game run normally. so no having to log in, no forcing transcripts, etc.
problem is, when i finish that section, i have to spend a turn actively before it jumps to the actual “when play begins” section (that i’ve had to bypass to a “every turn when”) and it’s getting way complicated.
Because i’m a paranoid POS that wants to make sure if anyone leaks my entry to a contest i can link it straight to them. It would literally have their name coded into it.
Any prior releases disqualifies me from entering things like ifcomp.
I’d rather have something and not need it than need something and not have it.
right now (i fixed it before work) it goes “agree to non disclosure agreement” or else it autoquits
then it makes you type your name - one error there and it autoquits
then it makes you give a passkey - one error there and guess what happens
i’ve been ****ed over in the past quite hard and i’d rather not spoil both dreams of wowing an international crowd with my first book and/or my first game because IF counts as both.
