So I wanted to add my TMBG tribute games to IFDB. It asked for an IFID. I’m able to see where it is quite nicely in the Inform 7 IDE on Windows…Index, Contents, Library card.
But then I realized something. I’ve worked on the game from different computers. I am pretty sure the game is in the same folder, but I’m wondering what could change.
This is more out of intellectual curiosity since of course I was able to pull my games down and check their ID’s, but I was wondering…if I decide to make a touch-up, will being on different computers affect the IFID? I’m guessing not, but I would rather make sure.
I’m not sure how much of this is extra-secret black box stuff, either, that programmers don’t need to know. But I’m just curious what could affect the IFID that programmers should know about.
