CHARACTER NAME CUSTOMIZATION NOT WORKING IN THE PREVIEW - Episode Limelight


#1

Please help. I am trying to write my first episode and I copied an pasted the female script template from this website: http://www.episodelife.com/2017/10/limelight-female-customize-character.html

No matter how many times I try to fix, it just doesn’t work, In the preview, it doesn’t even ask for my name! And then it calls me “Auto bot”. Will it work after I publish my story or something? Doesn’t it work on preview section?

I need help with this. Please…
I am not used to the new version of episodes, so please if you can, please help me out :frowning:
I would really appreciate!

MY SCRIPT FOR THE CHARACTER NAME CUTOMIZATION:
@ME enters from left to screen center

    NARRATOR
So... what is my name?

label first_name_input

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(ME)
if (ME is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}

is there anything wrong? Please find out for me why it isn’t working… :’( x

You don’t need the if/else if you just want the reader to add a name. Stick too:

input What’s Your First Name? | What’s Your First Name? | Done (ME)

And then add ME to the display name of the character.

Let me know if it works out.

Hahahahah XDD Thanks!

I just did that right now, and it still shows me the same thing!
I called my character “ME” and I removed the choices of the if/else.
So my script now looks like:

@ME enters from left to screen center

    NARRATOR
So... what is my name?

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(ME)

It still doesn’t ask for my name… and it automatically skips to customizing looks and it automatically calls me “Auto bot”.
what should I do now…? O.o xx

Do you preview it on your desktop or on the app?


#7

I preview it on my desktop :grin:
I used to preview on apps but I don’t know how to preview on apps anymore! They took that off I think.
I can’t find any ways to preview on apps so I always do it on my desktop :slight_smile: x

Here’s the section where your stories should be:


#9

And I can’t find the issue. Let’s ask @Dara.Amarie


#10

Yes, I also tried to click on that but that directed me to creating a story IN the phone. My stories don’t appear T.T
I’ll try again to see… but I am 100% sure that my stories don’t appear there… I really don’t know why. I save them all the time.

And thank you so much for helping me! Yes, we can ask @Dara,Amarie :smiley:
Although I’m not sure who she is or how to ask… i’m new in the episode forum XD x

Okay so the input typed in codes don’t work in the web previewer so you’d have to test that part out in the app. In the CREATE section of the app, your stories should be under “Playable Stories”. If you don’t see any of your stories there, make sure that you are logged into the app with the same email you logged into the portal online.

Sorry for late replying!! My PC stopped working so I had to reboot…
And yes, THANK YOU A LOOT!! I will try that right now!

Thank you both so much for your help!! I really appreciate >.<
If in future you need me to do something for you, I’ll gladly do it~~ Thanks a lot by the way! xx :heartbeat:
