§14.11. Changing the text of responses

These responses are named so that they can be changed. Most IF authors dislike one or two of the existing responses, and some would like to change almost all of them to give the text a different style; and extensions for IF in languages other than English change literally every response, of course.

It's very easy to change responses:

The print empty inventory rule response (A) is "Your hands are, like, totally empty. Lame."

and we can even do this dynamically during play:

now the print empty inventory rule response (A) is "Your hands ...";

just as if we were setting a variable.
