So this is the scene where it say that { doesn't gave a matching }, I checked it a lot of times, and I can't seem to find a mistake here, so can somebody help me? Thank you for your time.

NARRATOR
A/N: I advise you to pick longer version in order to understand everything. Plus the longer one will give you a few flashbacks! But the choice is yours!

When it gives you an error it should come up with a little red X on the line that needs fixing


#3

Yeah it did but, the { in that line has a } already I checked it a lot of times.


#5

That is very strange.
So I posted it in a blank portal (don’t worry i’ve deleted it now)
I looked at each choice one at a time

took the story (short story first)
off choice and then tested it for errors.

I then pasted the long story and tested it for errors.

I’ve put them back into choices and it seems to be working now

It may give you an error when you try it because you cant end your script on a label but I presume you haven’t finished with the lable yet anyway

in all i’m not sure why it gave you errors for the brackets as I couldn’t see the problem with them but hope it works now :slight_smile:


#6

ps I would recommend you test it without the lable and in a blank portal to ensure I haven’t messed it up


#7

You misspelled readerMessage at this part in the “Long - longer episode” choice.


SCRIPT ERRORS you just can't seem to fix: [CLOSED]
#8

What does reader message do?


#9

it’s like a drop down message


#10

Thanks,

Ann just check that too. Thought the narrator was saying that due to not knowing about that feature so I added NARRATOR before that. Other than that nothing has changed


#11

Omg, I did, that’s why it showed after I was done with editing it!
Thank you so much, I would have never sloved this all by myself :smile:


#12

Wow, thank you I never tried that but I will from now on, the storm is coming where I live so after it ends I will fix the mistake I made


#13

Hope it works for u now :slight_smile:
We had a srom here in the uk it was quite big too
