How to make the reader's chosen name in caps?

In my story, the reader is able to choose their name. When I put in the script [YOU] the name is normal.

Is there a way to make the name be in all caps?

I don’t know if this is the right one but I use this one for my story
label first_name_input

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FIRSTNAME)

if (FIRSTNAME is “”) {

You do need a name...

goto first_name_input

} else {

I have that in my script but there is a part in my story where someone is yelling that the main character. If the reader made the name ‘Molly’ then when i put [YOU] it will show ‘Molly’. Is there a way to make it so when I do [YOU] it does ‘MOLLY’ instead?

Just put exlamation marks

I was thinking of doing that but personally it looks angrier when it’s in all caps…

I’m pretty sure the exact bit of coding is impossible at the moment, but there is a workaround. You could ask the reader to type their chosen name in all-caps via another type-in choice, like so…

input Type your chosen name in all-caps, please.|Type your chosen name in all-caps, please.|Done(CAPS)

…and then just use [CAPS] for the emphasized name.

Or barring that, you could use a text effect (,e.g. this)…

CHARACTER (talk_angry)
|bold|[YOU]|reset, no-space|!
