I know this may seem like such a newbie question, but, please, hear me out.
I’m starting a new Episode story with a group of friends as helpers and co-authors, which I thought was a good idea to make the most extreme directing an Episode story could take, but none of us can figure this out.
I want the reader to be able to choose between either the default name for a character or to choose their own name. So far, it’s been going well and the script says I don’t have any errors. At first, I tried to reference the default name using the bracket function ([ABBIE], for instance) you would use when you type in a name, since that’s what I’m doing; However, even though it worked, it left the default name being said in CAPS, which really ticked me off.
So, instead, I opted for the if/else statements. Things were going good, and the script says nothing is wrong, but when I try
if (ABBIE != "ABBIE)
Hi, I’m [ABBIE]!
Hi, I’m Abbie!
It immediately heads into the ‘else’ statement.
If any of you can help me solve this, I, and my group, would be eternally grateful.
EDIT: I noticed I forgot to get rid of the ‘!==’ since I know this is technically incorrect coding, but I was testing it out to see if the difference worked or not. I have checked both the correct way of coding an if (VARIABLE does not equal to VALUE) and the one given in the picture, for future reference.
