I’m very new to inform (yes another n00b) but i’ve run into what seems like a really simple problem. However, I’ve tried many different ways to do the same thing and they all break down.
In the defence section is a thing called a bench. The bench is fixed in place. After sitting on bench: say “AH…”
is what i have written.
However, i keep getting this
You wrote ‘After sitting on bench’ , which seems to introduce a rule taking effect only if the action is ‘sitting on bench’. But that did not make sense as a description of an action. I am unable to place this rule into any rulebook.
I’ve looked in many manuals and i think i’m doing the right thing.
There’s a couple things here. The major one is that “sitting on” is not the official name of the action you want - it’s a synonym. There’s a couple actions where the synonyms may be more intuitive than the original name. In order to check which actions have which synonyms, you can look in the Index, under Actions, and then search. Under “sit on/in/inside [something]”, you’ll see a reference to entering, which is how you know that you’ll need to refer to “entering the bench”.
The minor thing you need to do is mark the bench as an enterable supporter - if it’s not enterable, then the game will print a refusal.
