Help with choices <3


#1

Hey everyone, in one of my chapters of “the unexpected”, I would like to add a disclaimer that chapter 10 is going to include touchy subjects, such as suicide and anxiety disorders. I would like to give them an option to skip the chapter, or read it. Can someone help me out with the coding? <3

You can use something like:

NARRATOR
The following chapter includes touchy subjects, such as suicide and anxiety disorders. Would you like to skip this chapter?
choice
“Read”{
goto chapter_start
}“Skip”{
goto chapter_end
}
label chapter_start
#your chapter contents
label chapter_end


#3

it keeps giving me an error.


#4

Seems like you used it wrong, put the WHOLE script underneath the label "label chapter_start


#5


#6

Your label chapter_start should be after your choice.


#7

I need help fixing this, I’m really struggling to fix these errors


#8

If the label is never used means there’s no goto anywhere, you need to add it

and there’s no label for lips either

NARRATOR
Chapter 10

label story_begins

NARRATOR
The following chapter includes touchy subjects, such as suicide and anxiety disorders. Would you like to skip this chapter?
choice
“Read the Episode”{
goto chapter_read
}“Skip it”{
goto chapter_skip
}

label chapter_read
NARR
Are you sure you want to read?
choice
“Yes”{
goto chapter_start
}“Go back”{
goto story_begins
}

label chapter_skip
NARR
Are you sure you want to skip?
choice
“Yes”{
goto chapter_end
}“Go back”{
goto story_begins
}

label chapter_start

NARRATOR
This chapter contains advanced zooms. Please tap slowly and wait for a zoom to be finished before continuing…
#the rest of your chapter content/script goes here. After you write the whole script, at the end, write:
goto chapter_end

label chapter_end

NARR
Thank you for reading!

Maybe try something like this :thinking:


#10

@ Apes is right! You are missing gotos for the label and need to put them into your script : )
If you need help with that, I could try helping :grin:


#11

That would be amazing! Thank you :slight_smile:


#12

I tried doing this, but when I tested it out and clicked the “skip” option, the story continued.


#13

Hi, can I see what your script looks like?


#14


#15

Hi, you’re doing it wrong-
it should look something like this:
label chapter_start
NARRATOR
Let’s begin < 3

NARRATOR
This chapter contains advanced zooms. Please tap slowly and wait for a zoom to be finished before continuing.
THEN YOU WRITE YOUR WHOLE SCRIPT HERE.
Once you’re done writing, the whole story, insert this at the end:
goto chapter_end

label chapter_end
NARR
Thanks for reading!

The problem is you’re writing your script under label chapter_end when all of it is supposed to go under label chapter_start
