Automatic Print-out Character Points?

Is there any way that automatically print out the character point at the end of the chapter?

I know I can manually hard-code it like counting all possible character point and put if (MAIN = 1){}elif (MAIN = 2){}else{} etc.

But that is way too naive way of coding.

I have discovered the way of automatic printing out the Character Points.

  1. In portal, preview the story with Line by Line mode.
  2. Put some logic commands/dialogues with your target character. For example, if it is MAIN, put
    if (MAIN = 1) {} blablabla
  3. Check the Helper Readout below the preview window. You can find the number of the character you want. Like, for me, it will read expr (5179203829039104 = 1) = 1
  4. That means, the computer identifies your character by 5179203829039104
  5. Use that as the point. i.e.
    NARRATOR
    Character Point= [5179203829039104]

Preview again, and see the magic!

I don’t think there is another way than if/elif/else.

@athoynilima this is very awesome, God bless you :heart_eyes: I haven’t been able to go on the web previewer for quite a few months because my computer gets all glitchy (it’s very old and I’m afraid it might crash :sweat_smile: ) so I can only test on the app. Can you do this on the app as well? :blob_sun:

You cannot write story in app anymore. But, if you already have your story written through the web portal, and it has some if (MAIN= 5) type of commands, you can try previewing in the create story tab in your app. The readouts are previewed on the screen if you read your own story that way, if I am correct.
