How to make inputs? (not name inputs)


#1

Hey guys! I really need some help here. You know those input stuff from the “choosing a name” thing? How can you use that in a different way? For example, how can you make riddles and let the reader answer with no choices at all using inputs. Like, if you are solving a riddle, you have to type the correct text to proceed, or if they don’t know at all, they can just type something then also proceed. How can you do this? I’m not sure if this will work but is this correct:

INT. BLACK - NIGHT

&JEN enters from left to screen center

    NARRATOR
Hmm... What is this? A password?

&JEN is think
NARRATOR
Can you solve it?
&JEN is talk_exclaim_yes
NARRATOR
Great! I think we need to add all of these numbers to get the 4 digit password.
NARRATOR
Here it is: 26 + 58 + 92 + 146 + 273 + 798?

label solve_addition_input

input What is 26 + 58 + 92 + 146 + 273 + 798? If you don’t know, just type “IDK”|What is 26 + 58 + 92 + 146 + 273 + 798? If you don’t know, just type “IDK”|Done(CODENAME)

if (CODENAME is “1393”) {

    NARR
Great, you solved it!
    NARR
The password is 1393!

goto continue

} elif (CODENAME is “IDK”) {

    NARR
You couldn't solve it?
    NARR
Was it too hard? Well, you better improve soon.

goto continue

} else {

    NARR
Sorry, that is wrong.

goto solve_addition_input
}

label continue

@pause for a beat
