Some animations in those templates have not been released fully so you cannot use them in your story. This is the full list of animations that are available to use for the Dirty Dancing contest:

The last one needs to be “else”

if (right_answer) {
}elif (no_clue) {
} else {
}

Also, you need to reset story progress when testing out gains. If you play through all the choices to test them out, you will gain all the gains and confuse the system.

(The story I’m using as an example is Wasted Roses)

So basically, there’s a background, and you have to tap to continue, instead of it automatically fading out to the next scene.

How do I do this in my story? (I don’t know if this has been already answered, sorry.)

You place the speechbubble offscreen or scale the size down to 0: @speechbubble is 0 0 to 0%

Don’t forget to @speechbubble reset afterwards.

Thanks so much! Also, how do I add my own “tap to continue”? Is it an overlay? Sorry for bothering again! :sweat_smile:

Yea you’d have to upload your own overlay

Thank you so much.

Yep, it’s me again.

I’m trying to add a Gender Select option to the intro of this story. I’m not sure how to do a confirmation choice- I don’t want to use flags because I can’t remove flags once they’re on, and I can’t put another choice after the first choice label check. I’ve been rearranging dialogue lines but still not sure how to get this done.

Here’s what I have so far:

Thanks! I got it perfectly because of you! Thanks again!

thanks!

Sorry I keep asking for help. I’m trying to write my first story.
How do you pan over a character’s body? Like as if the camera is checking them out.

Hi, it’s me again. I am having issues with the if, elif, and else.

Like this: } else {

You need the word is in the middle and you need to put quotations marks around the choice option name.

It would be best to put a confimation choice inside each gender option. Something like this:

label gender_select

NARR
Would you like to play as a man or a woman?

choice
"Woman" {

NARR
Are you sure?
choice
“Yes” {
gain woman_character
} “No” {
goto gender_select
}

} “Man” {

NARR
Are you sure?
choice
“Yes” {
gain man_character
} “No” {
goto gender_select
}
}

I am still getting an error but this time is different.
