Yes, as @ara.pia said, both methods work in the same episode and throughout different episodes.
oh, okay. thanks for the quick response. it’s just been a different (frustrating) case for my script. flags only worked when i used them on different episodes and choice names seem to work when i use them on the same episode . i’m just glad i can finally move on.
Hm, I’m not sure what that could be. If you’re looking though the previewer, it could have something to do with your “story modifiers” section. If it’s still giving you trouble, I’d be happy to take a look at your script in pm, but if you’ve already gotten it to work, then disregard!
