Character point help

Please I need some help
I’m trying to do a story with character points but it isn’t working out for me. I’ve followed every step from every tutorial.

@CHARACTER +2 (added to the good option)
@CHARACTER -2 (added to the bad option)

I did that twice and the when it was time for the outcome I did

if (@CHARACTER > 2) - Good response
elif (@CHARACTER = 2) - Mixed response
else - Bad response

This is the coding for character points yet mine doesn’t work. Please I need some assistance, I’ve tried everything I can.

Can you screenshot your script? Or copy paste it~

Before this, the command @DELILAH +2 or @DELILAH -2 has been added in select places

And did it work the first time you tried?

No, it didn’t work

And do you have a @CHARACTER =0 at the beginning?

Remove } at the very top

At the beginning of the chapter? No I don’t, I’ll add it now and see

That mark is the end point of a choice option. Wasn’t supposed to be copied in, sorry.

when you add @CHARACTER =0 at the beginning of your script, it’ll reset your MC’s progress with that CHARACTER.
Def add this

:ok_hand: it’s alright

Click on story modifiers (under the directing helper), then click on Character Points and reset to 0 so u can try other paths. This is what i do. First I test one pathway, then I reset the points and try out the other pathway from the very beginning.
