Fix for Twine files that have unusual quotation marks (“”)
« on: January 09, 2013, 12:15:56 PM »
If you write a Twine story in Word, and then copy/paste it into Twine, you'll often get weird errors with the quotation marks (see here and here). These are because certain versions of Twine haven't been updated to support them.

Update: The latest version of Twine supports extended characters. Get it here.

While we get the new versions of Twine working, I wrote up a quick fix that replaces weird characters in your story. Instructions:
  • Install Python 2 (The current version is 2.7, 2.6 works as well)
  • Download the attached file below.
  • Drag and drop your Twine file onto the attached file. A new version of your file will be created as a copy, with characters changed to support older versions of Twine.

This file has only been used for one story, so when we test it on more stories we'll probably have bugs. Let me know when you find them!
