Hello forum, I am very new to writing with inform and I’ve come across a point where I cannot do what I want to do.
I am trying to make conversation where the player must say hello before any other options are available to the player… such as asking about things. Is there an easy way to do this?
Try looking at the inform extension page - There is one by Eric Eve called “Conversation Framework” which via its mechanics implicitly greets the interlocutor (converser) automatically if the player does not do it manually. If this isn’t how you want it, you may be able to write rules that disallow conversation if there is no interlocutor and force the player to manually greet someone first.
