Often times, I find that you'll run into some very weird problems when they are actually just some wholly unrelated and silly flub; 90% Of all compile errors consist of missing semicolons, colons, periods, etc.

If you're using notepad, you might want to use the game's internal document viewer instead, as it colour-codes everything to make things like quotation or bracket errors much more obvious.

Additionally, keep in mind that how GIT handles Inform's Story.ni file is a little silly. Make sure that you pull the Story.ni file from the Inform folder in your GIT directory, then drag it into the Users\[User]\My Documents\Inform\Projects\Flexible Survival.inform\Source folder, rather than simply the extension equivalent.

Thanks for going over this. I'll deal with those corrections tomorrow or Friday and take the opportunity to look at the critter in general while I'm at it.

The saveword seems to be missing important state numbers?

After trying to change the size of a certain somethin ( ;3 ),

Amy was no longer in any of her states, causing a bug when I tried to talk to her. (ERROR-Amy-6C: She isn’t in one of the states she should be in! Please report how you got to this message.)

Helen was no longer pregnant

Karen (retreiver pet) was no longer with my pets (had to re-do the quest chain)

I was addicted to the dog bone again

Xerxes was suddenly in the bunker WITH helen (having taken all of her state information somehow, having everything up to the tattoo I'd done for Helen

And that's all I've found so far

-Edit- Amy's state is fixed after getting her pregnant again

-edit2- Helen's discription no longer shows her pregnancy bump even when she IS pregnant

-edit 3!!- Alexandra is missing from bunker

Well, what did you do to the saveword? Sounds like there's a value missing in it, causing all kinds of variables to be set to the wrong numbers. Can you post your saveword pre- and post-editing?

Another thing to remember too is that the savewords weren't meant to actually replace the saving system. Putting a saveword restore on top of an already existing playthrough might have... unexpected results.

Hm, what you just posted is missing at least three characters in the saveword. There should always be a number, followed by a curly bracket, so 00 and }} are clear to be damage to the integrity of the saveword, and I checked the spot for the second missing } - Joanna's hp should never be "20", so it has to be "2}0":

Filling in the } and a 0 for the ? resulted in a save that has Helen and Alexandra in the bunker where they were missing as you reported.

In the bouncy castle, if you lose to the blue pillars and end the game, you no longer get the loss scene first, it goes straight to game over.

Minor typo. I'll send a fix a little later.

Looking at the code, I'm not sure what could have caused this. I'll add a pause after the scene plays to see if that resolves it.

Thank you both for the head's up.
