How to let the reader choose name and customize their character?

Hi, I’m extremely new to all of this. I was just wondering if anyone could drop the coding for letting the reader customize their name and character for the limelight art style?

Go on YouTube and look it up I found a good one on there :wink:

for CC, just write @CHARACTER goes to character avatar unless you want to do something specific with it

for the name, I wrote:

NARRATOR
Hi, my name is…

label first_name_input

input My name is…|My name is…|Done(NAME)
if (NAME is “”) {
NARRATOR
Please enter a name. It doesn’t have to be your own.

goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}

and then, you just use [NAME] in your code. as in “Hi, [NAME].”

btw, if you want to know to use that picked name it depends if you used you or not

[YOU]
[FIRSTNAME]
[NAME]

That’s all I know

Let’s say you named your character YOU.

In the script, you would write:
input What’s your name? | What’s your name? | Done (YOU)

And that is ALL you write to let a reader choose their name, whether it be ink or limelight.

Example below
So in the script, you’d write:

YOU (talk_greet_neutral)
Hey, my name is [YOU] and I’m a rockstar.

Hope this helped!

For Limelight CC template, check out this thread:


You will find what are you are looking for and remember to give credit-Episode has their own CC template too (that you will find on the side of your script) but with limited features.
Good luck with your story!
