@Dara.Amarie has an awesome guide for all of them. :slight_smile:


goto is used to make the code go to what ever the label following it is. This can be a label that comes before or after the goto command. You use it to jump to different places in the script.

gain is used to remember commands. This allows you to remember things that happened in the past.

if is used to recall a certain gain. If the reader has that gain, then whatever is listed in the if statement will play. If the reader does not have the gain, the code will skip over it.

else goes along with if. Else basically says if none of the previous requirements have been met in the if statement, then the code below else will play through.

I am not sure what you mean by locker. Do you mean locking a choice?


either myself dunno what locker mean lol, but i saw people are writing lock or locking, i really dunno, but its something like that
I can hardly understand what they mean lol, so complicated god
I’ll better avoid these codes or i am getting mad
Thank you

Why it’s hard to understand it ughh
Thank you

I think you should take a look at the beginner guides first, since everything you’re asking about is for ADVANCED directing. Of course this wouldn’t make any sense ifyou are just a beginner. Take baby steps first, then once you get familiar with the basic directing, then you can start to learn more with advanced directing.


It’s hard to understand at first. All those codes are mediums. They are used when you want to add choices into your story. Based on the choice the reader makes, there should be an outcome. Those codes work together to make sure that the different outcomes you write will be given accordingly.

OH no, no locking a choice, i really dunno
It’s something like a lock they used it

Thank you Sailor Uranus :joy:

Do you mean like when there’s a lock sign on an option?


Something like that?
