Is it possible to choose gender and love interest prefrence


#1

so is it possible to choose if you are boy/girl and if you like girls/boys?

I’ve tried this using 4 different labels (4 different stories)
is there an easier way to do this?


#2

Not that I know of, it takes a lot of coding to make it so the reader can choose their preference of sexuality and gender. You could always see if anyone would be partners with you to even out all of the coding with someone else. Best of luck!

   NARRATOR
Choose your gender.

choice
“Female” {
gain female
} “Male” {
gain male
}

NARR

Who do you want to date?
choice
“Girls”{
gain date_girls
}“Boys”{
gain date_boys
}

if (female) {
goto female_story
} else {
goto male_story
}

label male_story
@pause for a beat
#male story
#in male story if you want to bring it up the dating choice
if (date_girls) {
#dating girls scene
} else {
#dating boys scene
}
#story
goto end

label female_story
@pause for a beat
#female story
if (date_girls) {
#dating girls scene
} else {
#dating boys scene
}
#story
goto end

label end
@pause for a beat
#end of story

i’m just worried that I might end up with my story chapter being short as they will end up being 4X as long with each story choice for example

say the story is 3000 lines (probably not)
I would have to do this 4 times so the chapter would actually be 12000 lines and may run into the error of (chapter is too long error)


#5

not sure how this would work?
wouldn’t I end up using more lines that way?


#6

Yeah, that is a big concern. I hope your able to figure it out!


#7

Think I might be biting off more than I can chew here lol


#8

It is complicated, so if you new at coding and you don’t really get the code I posted, try to maybe write something simple first, then as you learn more come back to this idea.

Would this work with character changes into…

e.g.
choice
“FEMALE”{
goto story
}

“MALE”{
@FEMALEAVITAR becomes MALEAVITAR.

probably is best I use something simpler though until I get used to coding

It won’t work, female will change and it will look like a male


#11

fair enough :slight_smile: thanks


#12

maybe just make it with the choice of sexuality and not gender as well. then the coding would only be twice as long.
