Quick question, if i wanted to code a story with the option of the reader getting to choose there preferred gender for an LI, would I have to make a male and a female character? And how would I code it? Sorry coding is really new to me and i’m just sorta confused. And how would I remember which one the reader chooses?
totally lost here, please help!!
You could remember it using gains.You’d have to make two seperate characters and code 2 different branches/the same code twice but changing the gender in either. That’s how I do it.
It’s not very hard as long as you code the sexuality choice properly! I wrote a big post that might help you here:
It’s not nearly as hard as it looks. I have two gender customizable LIs, and readers can choose to be straight (two male LIs), gay (two female LIs), or bisexual (one male LI and one female LI), so that works out to three branches. I write all my dialogue first, and any time I use pronouns for either LI I write it as -he/she-. I also use gender neutral names, so I don’t have to go through and change these.
When I’m ready to code, I code the straight branch first since the male LIs are physically…
And feel free to ask me any additional questions
omg i do not know how to do this yet-
i feel so embarrassed -
thank you so much!! definitely gonna check it out rn!
Don’t be embarrased, it took me 3 years to properly learn coding and I’m still finding out new things.
thank you!! guess i’ll have to do a little research on the basic coding this, when it comes to making branches and actual choices!
Have you watched Joseph Evan’s tutorials? I found them super helpful.
ouuu only some, but i never got to the point when he actually started coding and making choices. gonna check him out rn! thanks so much!!
