The *input_number command allows the player to input a number into a field.
It works the same way as *input_text, with two major differences:
- the player is only allowed to input numeric characters and when writing the command,
- it's not enough to specify a variable; you have to specify a minimum and maximum number so that the player can't write a number smaller than the minimum one or higher than the maximum one you specify
*temp coins 0 How many gold coins do you have? *input_number coins 50 100
In this example, the player may input a certain number of "coins", which modifies the "coin" variable. The game will only allow the player to input a number between 50 and 100.
Known input_number Bug
Note that there is a known *input_number related game-stopping bug when playing a ChoiceScript game using Microsoft's Internet Explorer. It does not occur in any other browsers, and there is no known workaround.
