You need to use props : @add PROPNAME to CHARACTER

how about if you make another episode, how do you keep the readers name for the characters,
like do i needa write something

No you just keep using NAME to talk about him. By the way to name the character in dialog use [NAME] (with the brackets).

so if there was another character they named i would use [NAME]
and i would also use [NAME] on the continuing character from the other episode

If there is another character, you need to use another thing than NAME. You can instead use NAME2
That’s how it’d look like :
label first_name2_input
input What’s Your Name?|What’s Your Name?|Done(NAME2)
if (NAME2 is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} elif (NAME2 is “Put here a name the reader can’t choose”) {
NARRATOR
Sorry, this name is already used in the story.
Please choose a new name.
goto first_name2_input
} else {
continue
}

You would then refer in a dialog to this person as [NAME2]
eg :
NARRATOR
Hi [NAME2]! Meet [NAME].

How do you get someone already on the background before they show the background, like before someone enters and how do you take away the prop?

To remove the prop : @remove PROPNAME from CHARACTER
You can either use the spot or use the “stands screen center/right/left” command.
eg :
@CHARACTER stands screen center
or
@CHARACTER spot xyz in zone #
Then you can make your character enter.

how about to make the lady shorter then the boy? How do you do that??

You use the spot
@CHARACTER spot XYZ
X would be the size, so you can put 1.240 for the girl and 1.280 for the boy for instance.

howabout if like u had choices and you want the character to say the choice that they made?

if (yellow) {
CHARACTER
I would like a yellow shirt
}
elif (green)
CHARACTER
I would like a green shirt
}
else {
I would like an orange shirt
}

I just edited the if/elif part otherwise it would give an error :slight_smile:
