Imagine you're programming a store. You have a passage named Store
and maybe five items for the player to choose from to buy.
So you have options to buy Lamp
but you have to create a passage for each item you buy, when really all you need to do is <<set $itemBought to "Table">>. And you don't need to have the "You've bought the BLANK" in multiple passages, so the literal buying passage would just be
<<set $itemBought to "Table">>
Now, two lines of good doesn't need a passage, and if your store has a lot more than just five items, making a passage for every single one is beyond tedious. Is there a possible way that when you have a multiple links for Buy the BLANK
, clicking it just changes a variable?
I would imagine it to be something like <<set $itembought to "Table">>
, but all that does is create a passage titled <<set $itemBought to "Table">>, and I don't know where the passage destination would fit into that. A different macro might be needed.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
