The Reliques of Tolti-Alph -- build problem with Inform 7

Hi,

I recently downloaded Inform 7 (5T18) and “The Reliques of Tolti-Aph” source to try a test compile. It is not working, failing at a point in part II with a “broken half-brick”.

Has anyone else been able to compile this source?

Thanks!

That game has been made with a very, very old build of I7 (one of the firsts, AFAIK). The syntax has changed a lot since then so you would have to make changes in many places to make the code work.

The tutorial is full of other good example pieces and if you want to try to compile a longer work, you could check out some of the more recent games at http://ifdb.tads.org/search?searchfor=tag:I7+source+available. For example http://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=xrofykwwtvx686gr should work with 5T18.

Thank you for the recommendations – I will look into these.
