Choice Within A Choice (Help)

Can somebody help please? I’m trying to put this choice within a choice and it’s giving me an error. Here’s my script.

(The main choices are “We’re going home!” and “We just came from using the bathroom.” The other choices are the choices within the first choice)

Script

MS TAYLOR (talk_think_neutral)
Why are you two ladies roaming around by yourselves?

choice [timed:12]
“We’re going home!” {

JEWELS (talk_shrug_concerned)
We have an early dismissal, so we’re going home!

readerMessage She’s getting suspicious…

MS TAYLOR (talk_armscrossed_shrug_neutral)
Why are you going home without your bookbags?

JEWELS (idle_awkward_scratch_loop)

choice [timed:12]
“I mean Rose is going home… I need help going back to the Art Room, I don’t remember where it was.” {

JEWELS (talk_armsraised_neutral)
I mean Rose is going home… I need help going back to the Art Room, I don’t remember where it was.

MS TAYLOR (talk_explain_neutral)
Why are you in the Art Room? I dropped you guys off at Music class.

MS TAYLOR (talk_armscrossed_condescending_loop)
Okay, enough with the lies you to. You’re skipping class and the consequences of skipping class is detention.

What error are you getting? And for which line?

I noticed that you wrote in zone 5 twice, delete one.

We just came from using the bathroom.

This part. This choice is apart of the very first choice when Ms Taylor asked why they were out of class. The other endings were the choices within the choices

I didnt notice that, thanks

And it follows a pattern like this:

NARR
Dialogue.

choice
"We’re going home!” {

#scene

JEWELS (idle_awkward_scratch_loop)
(Oh god…)

choice
“I mean Rose is going home… I need help going back to the Art Room, I don’t remember where it was.” {

#scene

NARRATOR (SAMONE)
Do you wish to try again?
choice
“Yes” {
NARRATOR (SAMONE)
Great :smiley: Don’t get caught this time!
goto label game_start
} “No” {
NARRATOR (SAMONE)
Alright :slight_smile:
goto label detention_ending
}
} “You’re right, we didn’t want to get embarressed because we don’t know our way around the school, we’re looking for the way back to Music Class.” {

#scene

}
}“We just came from using the bathroom.” {

#scene

}


I color coded the brackets.

Your gem choice needs to be named.
I haven’t looked at your script in depth though so I’m not sure if there are any other errors. :thinking:

If you are putting a label within a label that will cause an error.

Using color coded guide above, you’d:

You can put a label within brackets. And it’s fine to write a goto like goto label, they mean the same thing.

I have written a goto in a bracket section, but if I have tried to put a seperate label within a choice I get an error.

You couldn’t before but then they made an update for it. Guide on labels and gotos: 🖤 HOW TO: Labels and Gotos 🖤

“I mean Rose is going home… I need help going back to the Art Room, I don’t remember where it was.” {

for this one it says “there is a { on line 658 that does not have a matching }”

Sweet it was a long time ago I tried it, I don’t really pay much attention to Episode updates, primarily on the art updates, thanks for letting me know.

On line 662 remove the {

Line 701, should be something like:

choice (gemname)
GEMS:5"Yes"{

So name the gem choice and put the GEMS:5 with the < > on the same line as the Yes option

GEMS:5 (Gameredo) “Yes” { It’s asking if I forgot to put choice or if I forgot to put the name in all caps
