Custom name when someone talks


#1

Hi, I looked at the forum similar to this, but I couldn’t get it to work, and all I got were errors. Can somebody please explain how to have if someone customized their name to go on top of the speech bubble? I created the YOU character but it isn’t working.


#2

Is YOU your character display and script name?


#3

No, the script name is YOU, and the display name is NAME


#4

Use this then:

input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (NAME)


#5

Where should I put it? Sorry, it’s my first time using the writing portal


#6

After your character enters to the screen? and before customisation if you have one :slight_smile:

Just make sure you test it on the app, it’s not working on the Web Preview.

I have an error when I do that…how can I make it so that the name they chose will appear?


#11

YOU (think_rubchin)


#12

In the dialogue just use [NAME]


#13

When I do that, YOU appears and I don’t want that to happen


#14

Then you have to have a display name and script name the same

I don’t think you can change it now. You would have to delete your character and create a new one.


#15

So the display name and script name would both be YOU or NAME?


#16

No, then you using just one, for example, YOU for display and script:

input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (YOU)

YOU (talk)
Dialogue.

CHARACTER
Hi, [YOU]!


#17

Okkk, let me try that.


#18

YOU would be a random character, right?


#19

Whatever you pick. :thinking:


#20

When I do that, the YOU character still shows up on the side of the panel
