[Solved] Quest 6 - Storing player location/inventory/etc

Hi,

I was just wondering how I could store the player's current location, or inventory, or other things, if they were going to be temporarily wiped/replaced with something else (for example, falling unconscious), before being replaced with their original location and inventory. I tried just putting it in a variable with foobar = game.player.loc, but upon returning the player using this variable, it seems they're not really there, as they can't interact with anything in the room.


Hello.

Untested: I'd probably try game.player.locBak = game.player.loc before moving the player.


That seems to have the same issue as just putting it in a regular variable.

EDIT: Nevermind, it... SEEMS to work? It didn't at first, but then it did. I dunno. It seems the player isn't actually IN the room until they look at themself, and then they ARE in the room. So I'll have to figure out what the 'look me' command does that triggers that.

Ah . . . This gets me frequently (if it's what I think it is). Whatever command is moving the player needs to return world.SUCCESS (I think). Try that, and see if the changes take place when you expect.


Yep, that worked. Thanks!
