How do you write choices inside of choices?


#2

It’s pretty simple. Just first type out a regular choice. Then inside one of the choice options, just write out another regular choice.

NARRATOR
Dialogue.

choice
“Option 1” {

NARRATOR
Dialogue.

choice
"First Option" {

} “Second Option” {

}

} “Option 2” {

}


#3

It says "choices must follow dialog immediaitey , not a branch? "


#4

Yea just like in my example above, there needs to be dialogue right before a choice.


#5

Can you tell me what am doing wrong? This is what i have

choice “Pick the lock” {

@zoom on 236 290 to 401% in 0

@overlay SLIVER KEYS opacity 1 in 0.0

@overlay SLIVER KEYS shift to 176 194 in 0.3

label locks

    NARRATOR LUNA
Which key?

choice " Left" {

@overlay SLIVER KEYS shift to 210 230 in 0.3

@pause for a beat

    NARRATOR
Wrong key, try again

goto locks
}

choice " middle " {

@overlay SLIVER KEYS shift to 174 214

sound button

@pause for a beat

    NARRATOR
That's the correct key!

@pause for 45678

INT. VAULT
@cut to zone 1
@pause for a beat

@pan to zone 3 in 7

@transition fade out black 3
@zoom reset
}

choice “right” {

@overlay SLIVER KEYS shift to 147 219

@pause for a beat

    NARRATOR LUNA
Wrong key, try again

goto locks
}

}

How do you put a character behind another when the script set up is this?

&CHELSEA spot 1.290 223 -7 in zone 3 at layer 0 AND CHELSEA faces right AND CHELSEA is laugh_chuckle

&DANIEL spot 1.290 223 -7 in zone 3 at layer 0 AND DANIEL faces left AND DANIEL is laugh_chuckle

&SAMUEL spot 1.290 73 80 in zone 3 at layer 0 AND SAMUEL faces right AND SAMUEL is idle

You can’t have labels inside of locks, and you need to have some sort of dialogue right before choice “Pick the lock” {

Also, you don’t need to write the word “choice” before every choice option. The word choice only needs to be written right before the very first option. This is what a regular choice looks like:

NARRATOR
Dialogue.

choice
"Option 1" {

} "Option 2" [

} "Option 3" {

}

#8

You need to layer them. They’re all at layer 0. The higher the layer number the more in front they are, and the lower the more in back. So if CHELSEA is at layer 1 and DANIEL is at layer 2, then CHELSEA will be behind DANIEL.
