Hey! Can someone please help me with this error that I can’t get rid of?
Basically, I’m brand new at this and I’m on my first chapter of my first story, and I’m trying to make outfit choices for the reader. It’s saying that there’s an ‘Expected CHARACTER or SCENE change, Found ““Skeleton Babe” {“ instead. Did you forget to CAPITALIZE the name or close the ( ) around the animation?
But I’ve tried everything! Also, ‘Skeleton Babe’ is a Halloween costume, lol.

Do you still need help?


#3

Yes please x


#4

Well, I’m not very sure, but here is what might be the problem.

You need to put something like this.
label outfit_choice
NAME (talk_think)
What should I wear?
choice
“Skirt!”{
@NAME is dustoff_loop
@NAME changes into skirt
}“Dress!”{
@NAME is dustoff_loop
@NAME changes into dress
}
NAME (talk_think)
Should I wear this?
choice
“Yes.”{
NAME (talk_happy_smile)
Cool!
}“No.”{
NAME (talk_think)
Let me look again
goto outfit_choice
}

Thank you so much! Should I post what I had before I change it, in case it doesn’t work? x


#6

Hmm, maybe. I’m not sure. I usually just mess with my script until it’s right. You do you.


#7

Have you figured it out yet?


#8

Thanks so much. Is it okay if I post what I have where the error is? Just because ive been trying for like 2 hours and need extra help, lol. ty, I’ll post it anyway.


#9

I think I can help. Can you post a screenshot of your script?


#10

Lol, I was gonna ask for that too.


#11

But yeah, a screenshot would be nice.


#12

idk how u post a screenshot lo but i can copy and paste it? It says the error is on the the line “Skeleton Babe” and Im still not so sure of the problem. Basically I’m trying to have options for the reader to choose a Halloween outfit for the MC. I have one outfit that works, and then this one wont work.

label MENU
SIENNA (think)
What should I wear?

choice
“Sexy Devil” {
SIENNA (think)
Let’s try a sexy devil outfit.
@SIENNA exits left
@SIENNA changes into Sexy Devil
@pause for a beat
@SIENNA enters from left to screen center and SIENNA faces right
@pause for a beat
SIENNA (primp)
This will definitely catch people’s attention!
}
goto DECIDE

“Skeleton Babe”{
SIENNA (think)
Maybe an edgy skeleton outfit?
@SIENNA exits left
@SIENNA changes into Skeleton Babe
@pause for a beat
@SIENNA enters from left to screen center and SIENNA faces right
@pause for a beat
SIENNA (flirt_wink_forward)
I look so cute!
}
goto DECIDE

Ohhh I see


#14

The mistake is pretty simple, if you dont mind me saying…


#15

Such mistakes usually appear because you’ve spelled the name of the outfit wrong.


#16

Actually
