How do i put a name in if the readers are the one choosing


#1

Im trying to put in what it says in the guide but it wont work


#2

@YOU enters from left to screen center
NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?
label first_name_input
input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(YOU)
if (YOU is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}
NARRATOR
So… what’s your last name?
input What’s Your Last Name?|What’s Your Last Name?|Done(YOU LAST)
if (YOU LAST is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a last name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}

When you want to refer to the reader’s name in your story, you would write it as [YOU] because I chose that for Done()
