OK let's go through a checklist:
- Firstly, please make sure you do a machine reset before loading the game.
- Secondly, make sure you are running the latest distro from https://www.specnext.com/latestdistro/ and not the one that comes with the stock Next.
- Thirdly, if this still happens, can you list line 40 and let me know the first command. There is no reason is should report Nonsense in BASIC
- Finally, is your Next running anything to mod it, like an alternate boot screen or something like that?
(The driver not installed error is expected, you need to reset/reload and not RUN the program)
Thank you. This is all good to know and will help when I plan future adventures.
With regards to the animals, they do hint at what they require (The stag hints at leadership and lineage, therefore the 'Pharaoh mask', the Owl speaks of silver discs 'silver coins' and the Scorpion speaks of coloured glass 'coloured gems'). These are the only 3 'treasures' in the game.
Thanks for the feedback. The browser version is a lot more fussy than the Next version and I didn't fully account for that (all my playtesters were on the Next which is the intended destination). Aside from the verb issues, how did you feel about the length, structure and puzzles? This is really the first proper text adventure I've made and struggled to think up interesting puzzles for it!
It's a bit of a tightrope as I was making it compatible with DAAD for Spectrum Next...which does use two word (meaning some commands on the can work when they really shouldn't). I'm still learning what can and can't be done with it, this is my first try at using Adventuron.
