Label Choice Names HELP NEEDED!

Hi!

I have been having no problems with the customisation labelling
BUT I am having problems with other “choices” naming

For example, I have one called label food_game, label music_quiz and label movie_question
However, I get the warning triangle come up saying The label food_game (etc) is never used
Does this mean it won’t work?

There needs to be a goto for each label

There’s nothing wrong per say but if you want the warning to go away you should that :point_up:t3:

This what I’ve got, where do I put the goto?

label food_game

    MARTHA (idle_cup_neutral_loop)
What do I want?

choice (FOOD_1)
“Pink Sprinkles” {
@speechbubble is 163 152 to 120% with tail_top_right
MARTHA (talk_cup_toast_happy)
Think I’ll have a Pink Sprinkled donut today
&MARTHA is sip_cup_neutral_loop
@speechbubble is 132 211 to 120% with tail_top_left
PENNY (talk_reassure_neutral)
Coming up!

} “Glazed Chocolate” {
@speechbubble is 163 152 to 120% with tail_top_right
MARTHA (talk_cup_toast_happy)
Think I’ll have a Chocolate Glazed donut today
&MARTHA is sip_cup_neutral_loop
@speechbubble is 132 211 to 120% with tail_top_left
PENNY (talk_reassure_neutral)
Coming up!

} “Chocolate Caramel” {
@speechbubble is 163 152 to 120% with tail_top_right
MARTHA (talk_cup_toast_happy)
Think I’ll have a Chocolate Caramel donut today
&MARTHA is sip_cup_neutral_loop
@speechbubble is 132 211 to 120% with tail_top_left

}

You don’t need the label there unless you plan on asking are you sure this is what they want or something along that line, etc. Every label needs at least one goto (they share the same name) and a goto leads to a label.

So if u were to add it:

label food_game

MARTHA (idle_cup_neutral_loop)
What do I want?

choice (FOOD_1)
“Pink Sprinkles” {

@speechbubble is 163 152 to 120% with tail_top_right

MARTHA (talk_cup_toast_happy)
Think I’ll have a Pink Sprinkled donut today

&MARTHA is sip_cup_neutral_loop

@speechbubble is 132 211 to 120% with tail_top_left

PENNY (talk_reassure_neutral)
Coming up!

} “Glazed Chocolate” {

@speechbubble is 163 152 to 120% with tail_top_right

MARTHA (talk_cup_toast_happy)
Think I’ll have a Chocolate Glazed donut today

&MARTHA is sip_cup_neutral_loop

@speechbubble is 132 211 to 120% with tail_top_left

PENNY (talk_reassure_neutral)
Coming up!

} “Chocolate Caramel” {

@speechbubble is 163 152 to 120% with tail_top_right

MARTHA (talk_cup_toast_happy)
Think I’ll have a Chocolate Caramel donut today

&MARTHA is sip_cup_neutral_loop

@speechbubble is 132 211 to 120% with tail_top_left

PENNY (talk_reassure_neutral)
Coming up!

}

NARR
Are you sure?

choice
“Yes”{

}”No”{

goto food_game

}

If you’re not planning on putting goto food_game in your episode, remove label food_game

Thank you, this had been really helpful :slight_smile: I shall credit you at the end of my story along with everyone else who has helped :smiley:

No problem, p.s duplicate labels aren’t allowed in an episode but multiple gotos are allowed (ex. label FOOD can be used only once in episode 1, goto FOOD can be used many times in episode 1, label FOOD can only be used once in episode 2 and goto FOOD as many times as u want in episode 2, and so forth for the rest of the episodes this same rule applies, where label FOOD, label friend, label item, etc, can only be used once for 1 episode)

And just to repeat, if you have label FOOD in your story and u put goto FOOD, once your script arrives at goto FOOD, it will automatically skip to where it says label FOOD since a goto leads to a label. that’s why u use a goto and a label in a dressing game. Put a label at the top, go through the options, ask are u sure, if not, then put a goto which will lead back to the label (sharing the same name) at the top of the dressing game so they can re-try the outfits. Ofc having duplicate labels in an episode that say label FOOD wouldn’t make sense since where would the goto FOOD go? To which label? It would lead to confusion, right? :heart:

P.S sorry if i confused u and sorry for repetitions, i try to make things as simple as possible : D

And no credit needed :+1:

Can read more here on labels and gotos as well as other cool directing stuff: Tara explains: Ifs, elses, gains, labels, gotos and the points system!
