Thanks a lot! So one more thing, if the readers don’t click on all customization options then the twin would look a bit different right??

If the twin originally looks exactly like the MC before the customization, then they will still look the same even if readers don’t click on all options. So if a reader doesn’t choose a face shape, then the MC’s and twin’s face shape will stay the same.

Welcome! :blush:

Hey, I’m new here and I have 2 questions
1.How to make character’s speeech bubble look like narrator’s?
2.How to add text effects to story?

To make a character’s speech bubble look like the narrator’s, you’d would use NARRATOR with the character’s name next to it inside parentheses like this:

NARRATOR (CHARACTER)
Dialogue.

But this only works with characters with just one name. It won’t work if your character has a 2 part name or has spaces in the name. So NARRATOR (MR SMITH) will not work.

In the script on the right underneath the behaviors list, there is a list of text effects you can use. To add them, just put them inside these straight brackets | | right before the text you want to have effects

CHARACTER
|bold| I hate you!

Hi Dara, I need some more help, :frowning:

I’m doing a science explosion scene in my story but it’s not really working properly.

@CHRISTOPHER starts startled_surprised and ISABELLA starts shocked
sound explosion_small
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE create
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE shifts to 0.397 -383 122
@overlay EFFECT SMOKE opacity 1
music alarm2
@cut to zone 1
@zoom on 253 210 to 273% in 0

    KORSMAN (talk_call_out)
FIRE ALARM!

So it does the animations and the explosion noise then stops and freezes. It doesn’t create the overlays but just plays the alarm.

How do I get the overlay to show and how do I stop it from basically stopping?

Thank you xox

You have to also add in the scales command for the overlay.

Hey How do you use gains for choices?

This guide will help you out!

HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)

Okay… I’m a little confused though… if I have

CHOICE 1
CHOICE 2
CHOICE 3
DONE

And the player chooses #1 how would I get it to be like

CHOICE 2
CHOICE 3
DONE

And so on…

Are you asking how to eliminate choices once theyve been chosen?

Oh well yeah

Here ya go!

Thank you sorry I took so long :smiley::relaxed:

How do you start an episode off with a choice. I want my readers to make a choice and then the choice has a consequence. But there are two different consequences. How can I make the next episode start where the last episode stopped off.
