A Guide to Typed-in Choices


#107

Can you post your script where the error is :slight_smile:


#108

#109

Yes or copy and paste the part of the script that is wrong

The%20Life%20of%20a%20Spoiled%20College%20Teen%20Episode%201%20-%20Google%20Chrome%2021_12_2018%2020_35_06
That’s it, sorry I took a long time, my laptop died :confused:


#111

Have you written the word choice before it? Example-
CHAR (think)
(What should I do?)
choice
“Nothing”{
scene here
}
“Run”{
scene here
}

A choice must always have dialog before it. Ie a character speaking/thinking or narrator :slight_smile:


#112

Yeah, I do.


#113

Oh, I fixed the mistake, I left a line after choice, thanks so much xx

i think i did the code right but when i preview it it skips right past

#116

type-in choices don’t work in Web Preview, you need to check it on your app


#117

I let my characters choose their name in episode 1 but some people are complaining that their name is the same as one of the characters in the story. Am I able to let them choose their name again in episode 6?


#118

Yes. But put an if/else so readers don’t pick the name of one of your MCs. Use the same name input you’ve used before then use this coding -
example
if(NAME is “Lisa”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Lisa. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}else{
goto continue story
}


#119

goto name_input
}if(NAME is “Natalie”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Natalie. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}if(NAME is “Renee”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Renee. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}if(NAME is “Tiana”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Tiana. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}if(NAME is “Diana”){
NARRATOR

Just a couple changes with the labels and goto and if/elif/else code I’ve fixed it below :slight_smile:

label name_inout
@YOU spot 1.815 106 -219 in zone 2 and YOU faces right and YOU starts idle
input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (NAME)
if(NAME is “Megan”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Megan. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}elif(NAME is “Natalie”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Natalie. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}elif(NAME is “Renee”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Renee. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}elif(NAME is “Tiana”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Tiana. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}elif(NAME is “Diana”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Diana. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}elif(NAME is “Angie”){
NARRATOR
There is already a character called Angie. Please pick another name.
goto name_input
}else{
NARRATOR
