I’ve seen in a few stories where you can see an outfit on a mannequin and press on it to put it on. How do you do that?

Uh hi i’m kinda confused using the writers portal, I don’t know if im just stupid or what but everytime when i’m done previewing, everything just goes black. Is that how its suposed to work or…? it’s really bugging me.

Is it your whole computer screen or is it just the previewer screen, because either way it shouldn’t do that??

Its just the preview screen.

Nevermind, fixed it lmao it was the “INT. BLACK - NIGHT
NARRATOR
To be continued…” code at the bottom, thanks for caring though lol

hey I’m having trouble with my story
You see I have a problem with choices and this is the best way I can explain it:
YOU have 2 choices

  • let someone lead you to class
  • don’t let someone lead me to class
    If you choose don’t let someone lead me to class I want to make it possible that you become late and being called late but I don’t know how to make that work that my choices effect the story
    I already looked at the guides and I don’t get it :rofl::crazy_face:
    In short I don’t know how to branch on past choices
    (Please tell me if you don’t get it. I can have that effect when I talk or type)

NARR
Text
choice
“Let someone lead you to class” {
gain go_with

} “Go by yourself”{
gain go_alone

}

later if you want to bring this choice up:

if (go_with) {
#1st choice 
} else {
#2nd choice 
}
