A Guide to Typed-in Choices


#42

Bumping so it doesn’t get closed!


#43

How can I make my readers choose my name AND my brothers name (in the story of course)


#44

Use the same code, just change the question and answer parts.


#45

I don’t understand can you give an example?


#47

Take this code and just change the Question? and ANSWER parts whatever you want.

input What's your name? | What's your name? | Done (NAME)

input What's your brother's name? | What's your brother's name? | Done (BROTHER)


#48

when I want someone to say his name it won´t work.


#49

So if you have BROTHER inside the parentheses, just do [ BROTHER ]

CHARACTER
Hey [BROTHER], what’s up?


#50

I do that but they keep saying (BROTHER) instead of the name I chose. (It work with my character but not with my brother)


#51

What does your script look like and are you using the web previewer or your phone to test it out?


#52

I use my phone to test it out


#53

So what does your script look like


#54


#55

It needs to be straight brackets not parentheses

Also, you should put the name code before the label boy_custom1, otherwise your readers will have to keep repeating that part every time they hit the “done” choices in the customization template.


#56

Thank you so much I feel so stupid right now


#57

I kind of do not know what is happening, but heres a screenshot


#58

You can delete line 861 and lines 865 through 874. All you need is the code on line 863 and thats it.


#59

I’m testing right now. I’ll ask for more help if i need it.


#60

no like how do you name the boy, for example a boy in a story like they ask what is your boyfriend name called? thats what I’m asking…


#61

I’ve used your suggestion and it works perfectly in the chapter I’m in, but when moving to later chapters it says [nickname] on screen. How do I get the choice to carry over?


#62

The web previewer does not carry over choices, names, outfits, and customization from previous episodes. You will need to test your story in the app
