There are two ways to do it:
Everything in bold you change to make it relevant to your story.

Naming your choice...
Episode 1

NARRATOR
Would you like to go out?
choice (goOut )
Yes” {
SCENE
}
"No {
SCENE
}

In the future...

if (goOut is “Yes”) {
SCENE - If they chose yes.
}
else {
SCENE - If they chose no.
}

Using Flags and Gains...
Episode 1

NARRATOR
Would you like to go out?
choice
Yes” {
gain Yes
SCENE
}
"No {
gain No
SCENE
}

In the future...

if (Yes) {
SCENE - If they chose yes.}
else {
SCENE - If they chose no.
}

when you write the choice you want to remember, put a name for it. for example…

choice (write_name_here)
“option one” {

}
“option two” {

}
“option three” {

}

to remember the choice later on, you have to put this…

if (write_name_here is “option one”){

then write the script for if the reader picked this choice

}
elif (write_name_here is “option two”){

write script for if the reader picked the choice

}
else {

write script for this choice

}

an example of this is…
CHAR1
what’s your favourite colour?

choice (favourite_colour)
“red” {
CHAR2
it’s red!

}
“green” {
CHAR2
it’s green!

}
“blue” {
CHAR2
it’s blue!

}

then you would write a script here…
then if you want to reference that choice later, you would write…

if (favourite_colour is “red”){
CHAR1
i bought you a red necklace!

}
elif (favourite_colour is “green”){
CHAR1
i bought you some green shoes!

}
else {
CHAR1
i bought you a blue dress!

}

you can use this method to reference choices made in other episodes!

i hope this helped! don’t be afraid to ask more questions xo

omg thanks finally i understand

wait just a thing should not the choose be in the script if the chooses yes or no if you want those clothes?

YOU (talk_think)
What should I be ?

choice (favourite_costume)
“agent” {
@YOU is dustoff_loop
@YOU changes into agent

}
“sexy teacher” {
@YOU is dustoff_loop
@YOU changes into sexy teacher

}
“devil” {
@YOU is dustoff_loop
@YOU changes into devil

}

if (favourite_costume is “agent”){
@YOU is dustoff_loop
@YOU changes into agent

}
elif (favourite_colour is “sexy teacher”){
@YOU is dustoff_loop
@YOU changes into sexy teacher

}
else {
@YOU is dustoff_loop
@YOU changes into devil
}

perfect! so now, whenever you create a new scene, before your character enters, you would put…

if (favourite_costume is “agent”){
@YOU changes into agent
@YOU enters from left to screen left (or whatever you want)

}
elif (favourite_costume is “sexy teacher”){
@YOU changes into sexy teacher
@YOU enters from left to screen left (or whatever you want)

}
else {
@YOU changes into devil
@YOU enters from left to screen left (or whatever you want)

}

ok so in every new scen I put that
