I'm newly registered to the board and all ready I have a problem. How presumputous, right?
Anyway, I need help figuring out how I can do four things for a puzzle line in my text adventure.
First, how might I code being able to use a cup to capture a fly?
Second, how might I code a cat so that when the fly is released from the cup, it becomes distracted, and therefore takable by means of throwing a bag ontop of it? In essence: Putting the cat in the bag. But without allowing that to be used until he is in a state of distraction from the fly?
How might I conceal a person in a room (a ghost) until as such time as a dead cat is used to see him and speak with him?
How might I have the ghost react differently based on what the player is wearing? I want him to give out different "quests" depending on whether I am wearing a different outfit. If no outfit is worn (the player's normal clothes), I want the ghost to kill the player.
I'm qutie new to Inform and if I am missing something in the manual just tell me the area in which it is located and I'll pursue it there. MANy thanks!
