okay so i was wondering if you can help me with this:
I want to make a twin character of the main character but i made the readers choose how the main character look so how do i make the twin look like what the characters chose for the main one without having them to costumize both characters? Does this make sense? Help me please…:kissing_closed_eyes:

Templates have labels and you cannot have labels inside choices/brackets. So if you put the template inside of a choice, you will get all those warning messages. You need to put the template out side of the choice and put a goto inside the choice.

NARRATOR
Do you want to customize?

choice
“Yes!” {
goto character_customize

} “No” {
goto AfterCustomize
}

label character_customize

[script template here]

label AfterCustomize

[continue story here]

I’m trying get a character upside down, in Ink, and that’s the Episode given donacode… But I’ve no idea what it means.

Also, if I do try it, it gives warnings.

Can someone help me with this? Everytime I go to preview it with the different choices, it keeps going to the “else” command instead of the if, elif commands (if that makes sense) is there something wrong with this>

Did you name your choice “choice”? Like this?

choice (choice)
“Have her beheaded” {

} “Have her demoted” {

You need to name your choice if you’re using the choice name and choice option method for the if/elif/else statement. But you’re also using gains, so just use the gain method for the if/elif/else:

if (camila_dead) {

} elif (camila_demoted) {

} else {

}

That’s because when you make them upside down, their placement completely changes. So zoom all the way out to find them, then re-spot them into the scene.

You just move them to the spot you want and put those coordinates into your script. It’s just regular spot placement.
