VIP MUD hating large chunks of text

Postby ydia » Sun Sep 27, 2015 4:43 pm

Hi all,
I'm very frustrated because I'm trying to write a letter to an NPC, a very long one. Everytime I try to enter all the text to the game after copy pasting I hear error, but no dialog box pops up, nor does the game give me an error. I've tried pasting it all at one, and in chunks of paragraphs then trying to send it through, and yet I get the same. I have no idea what is causing it, or how to fix it, and this letter is important to send.

You need to turn parsing on.

For one line parsing, you use the > once, for an entire block of text, you use it twice. Some people do as follows:

>>Hi NPC;^My name is Jilliana.

I personally do as follows:

>>
Greetings NPC;^My name is Jilliana.

In case your screenreader isn't getting that bit of punctuation, it's the greater sign once for one line, and twice for blocks of text. To turn it off you use the lesser sign once.

Hope that helps.

You overhear the following rumor:
"There's an old man that can sometimes be seen walking around with a trunk, rumor has it he takes it to the stables and gets naked in front of the horses before changing clothes from the trunk."
You think to yourself, "Who could that old man be?"
