So, I am making a quest (same one as the last thread, if anyone is wondering), and I want to put two items in the same spot. In my case, the Wand and the Hammer. These two items appear in a take one item room, and neither is available anywhere else in the quest. Is there any way to do this without re‐writing both items from scratch? (Btw I don't care what happens if the player has both, as having both should not be possible as a result of other design choices.)

Of course, I figured out a solution on my own immediately after posting. I still think that this should be left up as a resource for others searching. It turns out that you can just cleverly link two positions together, in this case 5 & 6. So, the up and left select values for 5 are whatever is above and to the left of where the combo spot is, respectively. Down and right on 5 both point to 6. The down and right values on 6 are whatever is below and to the right of the spot. Up and left on 6 point to 5.

Would setting both of them to 5 and giving them the same sides not work?

I tried doing that and it didn't work. Only one of them can actually be the target, so the other one is non‐functional.

You can place them at the same location but they may niot have same position numbers
...no matter...

for example if you would have four items in a row, and three different should be placed at the same location (let's say #2 in first row)
...it has to be ordered like this.


(    0    )   ->  (1->2->3)  ->   (     4    )  ->  (     5     )
(    6    )   ->  (     7     )   ->   (    8    )   ->  (     9     )


...just for example

BTW I've checked out the UseSound of the Raft on my own (you asked for in another topic) and it really doesn't change anything.
So, i'm not sure if this is a bug or just a thing that's planed but not implimented, yet.

But yeah, at the moment there's no other option than to handle this by the screen secret sound (like you currently do)
