Update: I finally got it to work! I needed to copy and paste it into pages and color code everything but it works :tired_face:

Hi.
Nested choices aren’t neccessarily a no-no, but to use to many at once is making coding more complicated than it needs to be.
And you have lots of nested choices. Only on the first choice alternative I count not one, not two but three!. That makes a lot of brackets to keep track of.

Instead of making so many branches try putting the different choices under seperate labels and use gotos to make it easier to keep track.

If I’ve interrpreted your script right, you have the choice of being either a female MC or a male MC and thereby two storyline branches(?)
You’re also asking the same questions for both branches but without changing the scene(?) Then you can reuse some labels for both branches.

My suggestion is to put the different choices under their own labels, keeping the clothes and glasses choices seperate.

But if you still want to do nesting, the secret is that for every nested choice is to know the base choice system
choice
"Alt 1"{
scene
}
"Alt 2"{
scene
}

What happens when nesting is that you just put this sequence within the first alt once again before the last bracket of the alt.

choice <-first choice
"Alt 1"{ <-- first choice alt
scene
choice <—nested choice
"Alt 1"{
scene
}
"Alt 2"{
scene
}<— nested choice last bracket
} - <—first alt bracket

"Alt 2"{ <-- first choice 2-d alt
scene
}
