Now it says “Unexpected BLOCK_BEGIN: {” And I don’t know what to do

label 1_1_dressinggame

    LILITH DEMON (think)
What should I wear?

choice
{
“Black Cutout Dress” {

#210

Remove that bracket between the word choice and “Black Cutout Dress”, that shouldn’t be there.

#211

Ok, thanks a lot! But it says that this is wrong too. Does it mean that I have mispelled everything about choosing outfit? And where can I eventually find the correct script, because someone else wrote this, but everytime I fix it, a new error shows up…

gain (TRIED_BLACK_COUTOUT_DRESS)
}

} “Black Diamond Dress” {

#212

The format for a choice should look like this:

CHARACTER
Dialogue.

choice
"Option 1" {

#script here

} "Option 2" {

#script here

} "Option 3" {

#script here

}

Hi Dara,

Please can you tell me how to code so that the reader can input her last name as well as her first name?

#214

Use the input code.

#215

I’m using the code below for the first name, but how do I set it for the last name? And how to call up the last name later on in the story?

NARRATOR
What’s your name?

label YOU_name_input
input What’s your name?|What’s your name?|Done(YOU)
if (YOU is “”){
NARRATOR (YOU)
I can’t run around without a name!
goto YOU_name_input
}else{
continue
}

#216

It’s the same code. Just change “What’s your name?” to “What’s your last name?” then change YOU to something like LASTNAME

#217

Ooooh… Thank you! :sweat_smile:

#218

I’m getting this weird warning for no particular reason?

#219

Try spotting the code

&ADRIANA enters from right to screen center in zone 3
&EMILY enters from right to screen right in zone 3

#220

It’s not going away

#221

You don’t add “in zone #” for that command. It’s just “enters from right to screen center” without the zone 3. You already cut to zone 3 so you don’t need to add that in.

#222

It’s gone now. Thank you!

#223

No problem :slight_smile:

Hey Dara! I was wondering if you knew a few things.

First: how do you customize two characters in one episode without errors?
Second: how do you make it when someone chooses something for a choice, that choice answer gets carried into the next episode?
Third: how do you make characters speak offset?

sorry for so many!! thanks so much

#225

One:

Two:

Three: if you mean offscreen, place your characters in a different zone and have them talk, or use the narrator box with their name next to it:

NARRATOR (CHARACTER)
Dialogue.

#226

#227

honestly, I don’t know what that means or what it is. what is a ‘create command’??
