If you let the reader type in a name for a character, how do you change the character's name tag accordingly?

If you type in a name for a character, how do you change the character’s name tag accordingly? I’ve seen this in stories before, but I’m not sure how to do it.


#2

input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (NAME)

Since I used NAME as the answer, I will add NAME on the display name of my character (you can find that option in the Character Settings). That way, every time they talk, their name appears on the bubble.

And if you want to use it in dialogue, put the variable in brackets, e.g. [NAME].

Wow, that was fast. Thanks! :smiley:


#5

Please let us know if this helped. Thanks :slight_smile:


#6

Wait it means we can’t use NAME is it is not in brackets???


#7

Yes. When using a customized name you have to use it in brackets

[NAME] (action)
Dialouge

Or when a character is using their name

CHARACTER (action)
Hi [NAME] !
