You’d have to create 2 different characters where one of them has the ??? as their display name. Use the ??? character then when the time comes to reveal their name, switch to the character with the name.

For example

choice
“Read”{
Scene
gain read
}
“Watch tv”{
Scene
gain tv
}
“Sleep”{
Scene
gain sleep
}
“Eat”{
Scene
gain eat
}
If (read)
Elif (tv)
Else

What would eat be?

So I have music and sounds in my story, and one almost in every scene. With the music, how would you end the sound smoothly, because when i just put “music off” or “sound off” it turns it off roughly and it doesn’t sound right. So is there a sound change that can end the scene music smoothly? Does anyone know?

You’d have to “fade” the volume.

Thanks for the info, I will see if it works.

Hi again!

Is there a way to get a Limelight character to sit & read at the same time? Since there isn’t an animation for that at this time? -facepalm- :smirk:

If there isn’t an animation, then you’ll just have to use the regular reading animation and zoom in on your character so you can’t see that they’re actually standing.

Hmm… that’s a good idea, I guess… Thanks as always! :slight_smile:

Thanks

Thank you so much! And one last question…when typing in the narrator box it only fits a couple lines then has you tap to the next one I have to start with a capital. Is there a way to fit more in the box? And continue a sentence in the same box without a capital? If that makes any sense.

A new line of dialogue has to start with a capital or any type of punctuation. You can use the dash as continuance, something like this:

NARR
Blah blah here is a sentence
- and here is more of that sentence.

um… for your closet template, it says the label end_closet is never used

do your gains have to be in order? For example

choice
“Read”{
Scene
gain read
}
“Watch tv”{
Scene
gain tv}

Could you do

if (tv){

}
elif (read)

or do you have to put read first?

Did you delete all of these?

} <GREEN> "Wear this!" {
goto end_closet
}

The only reason why it would say that end_closet is never used would be if you deleted all of those parts.

Nope, they don’t need to be in any specific order.
