Fangs Not Showing Up?

I’ve written a vampire story recently and just published yesterday. I use gains and then if/elif choices to determine what vampire fangs a character switches into, but some of my readers are saying it isn’t showing up for them? I don’t know what to do because my app does not have this problem when I proof read! So… I’m assuming it’s a glitch? Is anyone else having this problem?

Can you send a screenshot of the script?

Example:
label angel_lip_shapes

    NARRATOR
Tell me again what lip shape you chose for Angel?

choice “Medium Heart” {

@ANGEL previews mouth Medium Heart

goto angel_medium_heart
} “Full Lower Lip Sharp” {
@ANGEL previews mouth Full Lower Lip Sharp

goto angel_full_lower

}

label angel_medium_heart

    NARRATOR
Is this the correct lip shape?

choice “Yes, this is the one!” {

gain angel_heart

goto continue
} “No, I clicked the wrong one.” {
goto angel_lip_shapes
}

label angel_full_lower

    NARRATOR
Is this the correct lip shape?

choice “Yes, this is the one!” {

gain angel_full

goto continue
} “No, I clicked the wrong one.” {
goto angel_lip_shapes

}

Then, later in the story…

@ANGEL previews eyesColor Red
if (angel_heart){
@ANGEL previews mouth Medium Heart Vampire Fangs
} elif (angel_full){
@ANGEL previews mouth Full Lower Lip Sharp Vampire Fangs
}

The fangs show up for me. But not for some of my readers.

Do your readers get to customize multiple times?

Yes, but once they choose their fang shape, they cannot change it.

So it doesn’t matter if they change their fangs. The way you have it set, the gain is based on their mouth choice. If they change their mouth choice, they’ll pick up a second gain. Gaining a gain doesn’t cancel out an old gain. I would recommend either not allowing them to recustomize or to use the points system rather than gains.

They only have one gain choice and that’s in the first episode. Later, when they recustomize, there are no new gains added.

And also, the glitch happens in the first episode, before they even get the chance to recustomize. Sorry, I’m not trying to be difficult I just really don’t want readers to be upset and stop reading my story because of it. :sob:
