Choices within a choice+errors

I’m not sure where the brackets go, can anyone help me?

From the print screen you don’t need the } from 550 because you have one on line 554

Yup I guess thats why you are getting error

you shall not @choice. and also no space between choices. the next choice option shall be right under the end branch( this thing } )

a choice shall look like this

NAME
Text

choice
“option 1” {

}
“option 2” {

}
"option 3 {

}

and if you want a choice inside a choice like this

NAME
Text

choice
“option 1” {

NAME
Text

choice
“option 1” {

}
“option 2” {

}
"option 3 {

}

}
“option 2” {

}
"option 3 {

}

if you need more help please give this videos a look

That’s okay, don’t feel bad about your decision.

Are you staying with Ms.Grim?
NADINE MCCALLISTER
Yes, how did you know?
PHIL
I assumed, don’t be scared though, she’s not too bad.
I would’ve asked for her a dinner with you, so she wouldn’t know that we’re plotting something against her.
Are you sure you can’t go at all?
NADINE MCCALLISTER (talk_suggest)
It depends…
PHIL
You don’t need to dance or even come with a date, just meet me here by the school.
Grim will expect you to be here for quite a bit of time, you can use it to escape.

You put @ before choice that can be the source of the error

I deleted the @ and I still have the same error message but it points to line 552

It’s been a few days. Could you fully post what you currently have now, at this moment?

It’s really the same except with the @ deleted by the word choice!

:blob_hearts:

I assume I have to copy and paste? <3

Yh, just doing another glance through but paste it and let me know how it goes :+1:
