Choices not working on preview


#1

Hi!
I hope someone can help.

I have put a outfit choice in my story and that works fine, but when I reference the choice later in the script it doesn’t seem to register what I put. It just skips straight over the if and elif sections to the next part of the story outside of the if/elif bits.

Do you know any reason why that might be happening?

Thanks!

Copy and paste the choice and then copy and paste the if/elif/else


#3

choice:

NARRATOR
Choose your party outfit…

choice (party_outfit)
“Sweet ‘n’ Pink” {

@FELICITY exits left
@FELICITY changes into FELICITY_plain party
@FELICITY enters from left to screen left AND FELICITY starts idle_handsonhips_neutral_loop

    ROXIE
You absolute wet lettuce.
Whatever

@PARIS is laugh_giggle

} “Hot Hot Hot!” {
@FELICITY exits left
@FELICITY changes into FELICITY_hot party
@FELICITY enters from left to screen left THEN FELICITY starts idle_handsonhips_neutral_loop

&PARIS is react_shocked_awe

    ROXIE (talk_sit_reassure_happy)
OMG, you've done it!

&PARIS starts idle_happy_loop
@ROXIE is transition_sit_to_stand

@FELICITY is blush_shy

}

if/elif:

EDWARD
Is Flick coming?

if (party_outfit is “Hot Hot Hot!”) {

    ROXIE
Oh yeah, she will be here in a sec!
Keep you eye on that door!

Hey little lamb, you look cute!

The last one should just be else

if (party_outfit is “Hot Hot Hot!”) {

} else {

}

Are you playing through the choice, choosing an option, then playing through the if/else right after?


#5

Ahh yes i dont have else in there, I thought that was used for a remaining option that you havent already stated an outcome for - like if I had a 3rd outfit option.

Ok I will add that and see what happens.

There is abit of story inbetween the choice and the if/else, change out scene etc.
