Choices must follow dialog immediately, not a branch


#1

Please help, i do not understand it at all! I’m new, sorry if this is really easy

Exactly what it says: You need to have a character say something right before the choice. At the moment, you have a bracket

Thank you so much!

^^ Like think about any Episode story you’ve read when you make a choice; It shows a piece of dialogue (for example, a thought bubble saying “What should I wear today?”) and then underneath the options of the choice will appear. So you need to have a character say something for the choices to appear under.

Also… this is sort of unsolicited advice but I’m looking at your screenshot and it seems like you don’t actually give your readers a choice… it should look like this:

             NARRATOR
     Do you want to hear the backstories?

choice “No, I want to find out on my own.” {

             NARRATOR
     Are you sure?

choice “Yes, I’m sure. Let’s just get to the story.” {

             NARRATOR
     Okay, you do you.

goto backstories_end
} “No, I take it back; I want to hear the backstories.” {

             NARRATOR
     Good choice!

goto backstories
}
} “Yes, I want to know everything!” {

             NARRATOR
     Good choice!

goto backstories
}

label backstories
[insert all your backstories here]

             NARRATOR
     Now you're all caught up! On with the story!

label backstories_end
[continue with your story]

Oh gosh, I just realized my story is all sorts of messed up! Thank you so much for this. It truly is super helpful!
