​Recently I noticed the iframes for some Twine 2 games like the ones I have were not loading unless the iframe was removed by loading only the contents.

This is caused by a security exception on the iframe. The code inside doesn’t respect the Same Domain Policy. So I investigated…

First I noticed the obvious console error stating a SecurityError, then tried to track it down to the source. Took a while, but turns out there’s a call to localStorage on the Harlowe syntax in versions 1 and 2, but it was fixed for version 3, which made it harder to track.

Ultimately, in your Twine projects, you will have a minified version of the Harlowe syntax (or whichever you use) which means it doesn’t map exactly to the source symbols, but thankfully the localStorage is a window property that has a fixed name wherever it exists.

To fix this error, you can either edit your minified format.js file, then rebuild/export your twine game (I use Twee2, if you’re wondering), or you can directly edit your index.html if that’s what contains your game. That’s how I upload it to Itch, since it will just show the twine on the game page. You probably did the same if you have this issue.

What you have to change is very simple. You search for localStorage and you will find something like

y=!!localStorage&&function()...

That’s the right place, though the letter on the left may vary. just cut the !!localStorage&& part and paste it after the next return on its right so it looks something like

try {return !!localStorage&&localStorage.

Make sure that space is after the return. That’s all! Now you can recompile if you edited the format.js or just reupload the modified index.html (after re-zipping it) and you’re good!!

It’s a small oversight with an easy fix, but it seems it went unnoticed for long, or at least I couldn’t find anything on it during my search.

I hope this small guide is simple enough that everyone can follow it without breaking anything else and that I am right that this is the only issue with that syntax. Let me know if you try this! <3

👍

there's a surprising lack of windows on most first floors =P

Good game! <3 <3 <3

if only I could eat all these delicious-looking pixels...

you put the mac version tagged as linux, fren~

that means they're not supported on your platform (most likely linux)

I think the itch app should let us download any file we choose to run as we see fit, tho

like, I wanna download windows games to run on wine, why can't I do that easily?

👍

is catgirl an option?

Thank you! Of course this fits. Can you provide me with a link? <3

Hello, my name is Efi, I'm a spanish trans girl and I am writing a series of articles about transgender representation in games.

These articles will be in spanish for now, but will be translated in the future, if that's a concern.

If you have made,or know about, a game that fits in any of these categories, please reply to this post with a link and what kind of representation it shows:

- games with (explicitly stated) transgender potagonist (please, indicate if it is about trans girls or other)

- games about trans issues (transition, trasphobia, binarism, etc...) as a main plot device

- games with trans secondary characters that are not used as a comic relief due to crossdressing

- games about explicit crossdressing or genderplay

- games with an ungendered character, as in it's never mentioned

- games that touch on other explorations of gender such as non-binary, trans relationships or that otherwise treat trans people as real, existing and part of its world

- any other form of art that is not a videogame but fits the above criteria is welcome if you are the author (no linking a trans webcomic if you're not making it, for example)

- games with a girl protagonist ot full cast of girls that are not heterosexual erotica (male gazey) are also welcome for a different future article

I am looking for games about transition, sure, but even more I want to see trans girls shooting space aliens in giant mechs <3

thanks for your time and I hope you have something to show me =D
