I am trying to customise the banner in my game. I basically want it to display the same, except instead of just showing “Release 1” (as a whole number), I want it to include the subnumber (which I defined earlier) as “Release 1.14”, for example. The release number and release subnumber are displaying exactly as I want them to, but I can’t figure out how to display the serial number and the Inform version.
Here’s the code that works:
To say the/-- banner text: say "[bold type][story title][roman type][line break]"; say "An Interactive Fiction by [story author][line break]"; say "Release [release number].[no line break][release subnumber][paragraph break]".
I want to be able to display the banner like this:
An Interactive Fiction by C. Scott Davis
Release 1.14 / Serial number 230328 / Inform 7 v10.1.1 / D
but I can’t figure out any text substitutions for the serial number and Inform 7 version. I’ve tried every variation I can think of (starting with [serial number]), but none of them work. I’d be okay leaving off the Inform 7 version, if I have to, but I’d really like to include the serial number.
Does anyone know the text substitutions for the serial number and Inform 7 version?
Much thanks, as always!
