My hope is that these eventually become obsolete.

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?

CSS and Javascript Questions on 1/6/2023 6:57:48 PM

1) This should work, but the cascading nature of CSS means that some other selector might be overriding it. You can always use the inspect element tool, and specifically the "computed" tab, to see exactly how an element's final style is chosen.

2) Using styles and scripts in the forums is limited, but you are given a bit more free rein in storygames. Though lack of classes/ids does make referencing specific elements tricky, lol.

Change Default Font Size Depending On Variable on 10/8/2022 4:46:40 PM

Yeah, it all boils down to that not quite being the way variables are interpolated. All you need to do is split the string there and splice the variable in. Just change that line to:

font-size: " + %FONT + ";

Centering an image? on 8/21/2022 8:36:47 PM

Speaking purely in terms of the CSS background property…

If you want your background not to repeat, add "no-repeat".

If you want your background be positioned in the center, add "center center".

If you want your background to scale to fit the available area, add "/ contain"; if you want it to scale to fill the area, add "/ cover". (If you're setting a scale, you have to include a position, followed by a slash, followed by the scale.)

e.g.

Centered only
Scaled to fit
Scaled to fill

Advanced Name and Variable on 8/28/2021 12:29:51 AM

Yes, script tags do not need to be in the document head to work. In fact, it's pretty common to put scripts in the bottom of the body to improve the page load time. You just need to be sure that the script isn't being referenced by anything before it's loaded in.


Advanced Name and Variable on 8/27/2021 11:23:16 PM

With custom names, each letter is stored in its own variable, so for each name you're testing for you'll have to make a long conditional. For "Bob", for instance, the code would look like this:

IF %N0 = 66 AND %N1 = 111 AND %N2 = 98 AND %N3 = 0 THEN %TNAME := 2

Each letter is represented as a number (its UTF-16 codepoint), and this is case sensitive. That fourth check (%N3 = 0) is to make sure it's exactly "Bob" and doesn't just start with "Bob". You can use this CodePen to generate the conditionals quickly.
