If the 'must be available route restriction' in the PM task fails the text from the direction restriction will not display if the text in the PM task restriction has alternate texts.

Workaround: Use text overrides to allow alt texts in the PM task restriction.

Although the workaround will not work if the alternate text references directions as text overrides do not (I believe) have access to referenced directions.

Unless I'm misunderstanding what you mean, I can't reproduce this. Is it still an issue?

See this example:

The only difference between this and the original Cloak.taf is an alternate description in the player movement tasks restriction.

Having this alt desc stops the direction failure text in Foyer of the Opera House when going north from displaying. The text from the PM task is ALWAYS shown.
