How to make a Locked Choice!


#1
  <LOCKED> "Insert text here"{

  } 

I suggest using gain for locked choices, since why would you display it there if it was locked? So if a character makes a messed up choice make sure that they don’t get to choose the locked choice (AKA make it locked)

I hope I helped!

Check out my Help Thread for even more great stuff!


HOW TO: sounds, music, filters + weather effects! (FOR BEGINNERS!)

Sorry everyone I meant to put this

 <LOCKED> "Insert text here"{

 }

#3

Very helpful! ^^


#4

How do I use it with a gain ?


#5

Wdym? (Please explain)


#6

I want to use the locked choice with character points so if the reader hasn’t got a certain amount of points they cant unlock the choice
and also if on the next episode I want to remember what happened before how would I use if else or elif to help


#7

So basically when you make the choices that effect their character points you want to make sure you gain them.

Do you want me to make a mini script?

Let’s see if the owner will give you free ice cream.

Congrats! You got the free ice cream because you were nice to the owner and greeted him in a respectful manner.

You chose not to take the free ice cream.

Unfortunately you were rude to the owner, so you get no ice cream.

This is a sample template from Limelight that I made-I believe they mean that they want something like this. Of course, they must have a completely different scenario in mind with different characters & choices.
(Also, this is a very simple one but did take me some time to code lmao)

lol, ikr the pain of coding is that it takes you some time XD
