My hope is that these eventually become obsolete.

CYSCE (CYS Chrome Extension)

CYSFFE 0.4.6 (CYS Firefox Extension)

CYSFiddle (page script testing environment)

CYSugar (syntactic sugar for CYS Script)

But, uh, totally go ahead and use them in the meantime.

De Milite Inprudenti

Do you know what happens to knights who dare oppose me? They’re soundly beaten, torn to shreds, reduced to mere ashes, utterly and completely obliterated. No one can defeat the great and mighty (and—dare I say—quite handsome) Knarr'ator. I’m the best, most awesomest dragon there ever is, was, and will be. And yet here you stand, just a character in my story, challenging me like the fool you are. If you think you stand a chance against me, you’ve got another think coming.

But by all means, go ahead and try.

Slaying Song

It seems you’ve found yourself within
The troublesome affair
Of trekking through the timberland
To slay the dragon there.

They claim it a ferocious fiend;
However will you fare?

Yeah, the conversion requires a lot of manual find & replace and I'm lazy lol

I have updated the FF extension to the latest version now (and then had to upload a quick revision bc of a problem with the icon). For anyone currently running 0.4.1, it should eventually auto-update, but here's the manual link anyway: CYSFFE 0.4.6r1

Problem with reading/previewing story! on 11/28/2018 8:19:19 PM

Are you using on-page coding on the page just before the error? Sometimes extra characters from HTML (which is hidden in rich text) gets between those percentage signs and messes with variable handling which is then realized on the following page. If you do, try editing the HTML out via the source; or cut the passage and either paste it into notepad (or some other plain text editor) and back, or paste it right back in as plain text (Ctrl-Shift-V).

Personally, I can only recall seeing this happen twice: now, and last year on Sep. 22, where they both persisted for a while. I have an uptime monitor that checks at least every twenty minutes and it looks like this one began sometime between 8:00 and 8:20 AM site time.

However much that helps lol

Can I use multiple variable values in scripts? on 11/13/2018 3:32:52 PM

There’s a bug that causes AND, OR, and NOT to fail unless you only use = or !=, so you’d actually need to replace that AND with a second IF statement as a workaround.

    $PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT +"You're bleeding."

It's a WikiHow illustration with a scalie slapped on it so really that's to be expected.

I might not have.

I can't really test this either since I happened to publish my games in alphabetical order, but yes, it is the default site behavior unaltered by the extension. Seems to operate on a delay, too, where the sort you select is applied only after you've selected a new one.

Bumping to say it looks like the SSL cert's been renewed so HTTPS should be working again.

14th item slot blank (Inventory Menu script) on 10/28/2018 5:03:00 PM

Yeah, that's my bad. I actually had no idea the inventory automatically split items into rows and assumed you were using a custom inventory or something, haha. The point of tr:nth-child(3) tr:nth-child(2) was to hide that border, since it's also row 3, column 2 of a table, but because of my misunderstanding, the 14th item thumbnail was affected too.

Added on to the last rule and made it important; that should do it for you.

table, table table tr:nth-child(3) td:nth-child(2) {visibility: hidden;}

table table tr td {visibility: visible;}

table td:nth-child(4), table table td.smallerText {visibility: visible !important;}
