How do you make MC talk?

so, in my story, I’m letting the player choose the character’s name. Everything is fine except I am not sure how to make the character say dialogue. I tried putting [NAME] and then under that, dialogue. I know I am doing this wrong. Can anyone help?

Whats the characters script name?

If you’re code is this:

input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (NAME)

Then the MC display name should be NAME too. To make MC talk you simply use:

NAME (talk_animation) (edit: <— Character’s scriptname)

Taken from the guide @IsabelleV provided a link to:

Your character’s display name needs to be whatever you have inside the parentheses of the typed in code. Whatever the reader typed in as their name will show up on top of the speech bubble when they talk. You will continue to use your character’s script name in the script.

Btw the web previewer uses “autobot” instead so don’t worry if it does that, it should work in the story
