It’ll help you with placing the image


#5

ok that I knew how. what about have a choice to open the text like the game choice I did it in my other story cant find out how I did it


#6

choice
“READ MESSAGE” {

NARRATOR
GABBY: Hey girl, I shaved off all my hair.

}


#7

ok thanks


#8

Anytime


#9

its not working

you must have a dialog immediately before a choice


#10

Yea you do, for any choice you have to have dialogue before
So for example

CHAR1
Hey… I have a message!

choice
“READ MESSAGE” {

NARRATOR
GABRIEL: I shaved Gabby’s eyebrows off.”

}

    NARRATOR

choice

"READ MESSAGE"{
