Can someone please help me with my directing error smh

Hello, I’m having some serious trouble with the whole ‘choices’ thingy :sweat_smile:

In my script, I write in a “choice of approval” which basically means the reader has to give consent that they are okay with whatever goes on in my story (and they’ve been previously warned) and when I previewed it they all worked out perfectly all except the one when you don’t wish to continue reading (when the reader presses LEAVE and then presses YES IM SURE) which should bring you to a black background until you manually exit (because I put it on pause for ages) but when I previewed it it went straight into the story and not a black screen which it should have because they didn’t want to keep reading and I didn’t want to show them that if they didn’t wish too

This is the part of my script that I could seriously use some help with pls :weary:

Thank you to whoever acknowledges my problem :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

And please please please help me I really need it - thx :crazy_face:

What’s the error you’re getting? Could it be because the word “choice” is on the line above? Usually they are set out like this:

choice “Option 1” {

} “Option 2” {

}

Maybe the number of seconds is too long? :joy: Or perhaps you should put the label lets_leave at the very end of the episode so that the reader will be brought to the main screen immediately (basically they “finished” chapter 1)
