AND, OR in scripts don't work with >, <

An example:

%A := 1
%B := 1
IF %A > 0 THEN $PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A > 0 <br>"
IF %A = 1 AND %B = 1 THEN $PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A = 1 AND B = 1 <br>"
IF %A = 1 OR  %B = 1 THEN $PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A = 1 OR  B = 1 <br>"
IF %A > 0 AND %B = 1 THEN $PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A > 0 AND B = 1 <br>"
IF %A > 0 OR  %B = 1 THEN $PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A > 0 OR  B = 1 <br>"

The output is:

A > 0
A = 1 AND B = 1
A = 1 OR  B = 1

The conditions containing both AND,OR and >,< are not executed.

I haven't tried working with AND or OR, but I also can't find any references to them being included in the scripting language. Perhaps the solution is to use nested IF statements.

Operator AND is mentioned in examples here: http://chooseyourstory.com/help/articles/article.aspx?ArticleId=46 and here: http://chooseyourstory.com/help/articles/article.aspx?ArticleId=48

Indeed, the workaround is to use nested conditions, but it's not a pretty solution.

A bug is a bug and needs to be fixed.

Any advice?

Seems to be an error. Like others said, you can get around it, it' just not pretty.

AND:
IF %A > 0 THEN
IF %B = 1 THEN
$PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A > 0 AND B = 1"

OR:
%DONE := 0

IF %A > 0 THEN
BEGIN
$PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A > 0 OR B = 1"
%DONE := 1
END

IF %B = 1 THEN
IF %DONE != 1 THEN
$PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "A > 0 OR B = 1"


Sadly the done variable is needed so it doesn't execute twice.

Sorry, missed this tag, but Killa's right. You just have to re-word it and not use them because AND / OR are just too buggy and unreliable. It really could use some fixing, though. Hopefully Alex will look into this.

Thank you all for the replies and suggestions!

I know how to make a workaround for this bug with extra code.

The purpose of this thread is to let developers notice this bug and fix it.

"developers"

It's the developer, and it might get fixed when he wants to come around and fix some things.

I know this is 4 years old, but I'm having the same problem. I know @JJJ-thebanisher recently did some updates but thought I'd just bump this in case it's possible to fix. I did fix it using IF statements, but wanted to give you a heads up anyways since this report was so old. For me it was failing to work with the following link script: IF %VARIABLE > 2 AND < 7 THEN

Proper syntax would be -

IF %VARIABLE > 2 AND %VARIABLE < 7 THEN

It may still be broken, but try that to see for sure.

That did validate! Thank you so much. I was going off the way it was written in the random encounter scripting article.
