Labels playing the same scene

Hey guys

I’m running into a bit of an issue where different labels are playing the same “if” scene.

Here’s the script:
}

if (Yes) {

goto label hospital_1

}
elif (No) {

goto label hospital_2

}

label hospital_1

To be honest Dylan, i’ve been thinking a lot about us and I just don’t feel ready to start something.
Not with everything going on right now.

You’ve got a long recovery ahead, and I wanna make sure that you don’t slip.

How could you possibly be any help? You’re just gonna leave again when I get too attached and I refuse to put myself through that again.

Which is why i’m basing all my work here in London.

And you can always come with me.

This is the thing Dylan. I’m not in the right headspace to be going here and there.
Plus i’ll be entering a world where everything you do is aired publicly.
This whole celebrity life is your thing but its not mine.
I don’t wanna be a part of it.
I have a job here Dylan. I can’t just drop everything to be miss Hollywood girlfriend.

I don’t know what came over me but I just grabbed and kissed him.
I couldn’t fight off the temptation no more.
I needed him so bad. He was the only one I wanted and I wasn’t gonna let him go again.
Dylan is my one true love. He was my everything.
I hate to admit it but I loved him so much. I never stopped loving him when he was out in Hollywood.

Just smelling his scent again made me go crazy. I didn't know what to do.
I knew that I couldn't let him in again, but the way he makes me feel makes me weak.
The way he makes me feel safe. I needed him back in my life.
At this moment in time, my whole world felt whole again and I couldn't let go of him.

To be continued…

The script isn’t showing any errors which is why i’m so confused. I’ve checked the tags and they’re correct. I just need it to remember the choice and go to the right scene. I’ve set the choice tags to go other scenes and they work. Its when the if and elif comes in which causes the issue.

I’m thinking its an episode glitch but I can’t be sure.

Thanks

For the goto, you don’t need to put the word “label”.

Try putting “goto ending” instead of “goto label ending”.

It doesn’t work. The issue is when the person selects the “No” choice. It keeps playing the “Yes” choice regardless.

I’ve scrapped the “if” and tried this instead:

choice
“See Josie”{

@speechbubble is 114 220 to 100% with tail_top_left

    DYLAN
Sure, i'd love to see her.

@transition fade out black in 3

gain see_josie

goto hospital_with_dylan

goto hospital_1

}
“Go Home”{

@speechbubble is 113 220 to 100% with tail_top_left

    DYLAN
Actually, i'll crash for tonight. I'll visit tomorrow.
I think with everything that's happened, I better give her some space.

@speechbubble is 222 214 to 100% with tail_top_left

    BENNY
As you wish. See you tomorrow.

@speechbubble is 117 219 to 100% with tail_top_left

    DYLAN

@DYLAN exits left in 3

@transition fade out black in 3

gain go_home

goto hospital_without_dylan

goto hospital_2

}

Same issue.

Hmm, have you tried this?

if (Yes) {

goto hospital_1

} else {

goto hospital_2

}

Nope, getting the same issue. There’s four different labels, if choice this, it needs to go to label this and that

If you’re testing on web preview, it doesn’t remember choices and by default will just play what’s in the else part. Test it on your app and reset story progress or go to story modifiers, flags, then ungain the yes choice :blush:

if (Yes) {

goto hospital_with_dylan
goto hospital_1

}
elif (No) {

goto hospital_without_dylan
goto hospital_2

}

I need the labels to branch out correctly, first one works, second one just plays the first one

Here, you have 2 gotos in a row. In the “if” section, it will go to hospital_with_dylan, but it won’t go to hospital_1. Same thing with the “elif”.

Yes, I even tried this:

if (Yes) {

goto hospital_with_dylan

}
elif (No) {

goto hospital_without_dylan

}

if (Yes) {

goto hospital_1

}
elif (No) {

goto hospital_2

}

if (yes){
scene here for this choice
}else{
scene here for no
}
story continues here

You don’t need to put goto, just put the scene inside the choice and your branching should come together where I have put story continues here

Here’s the full command so far. I can’t see any problems with it which is very bizarre:

choice
“See Josie”{

@speechbubble is 114 220 to 100% with tail_top_left

    DYLAN
Sure, i'd love to see her.

@transition fade out black in 3

goto hospital_1

}
“Go Home”{

}

if (Yes) {

goto hospital_with_dylan

}
elif (No) {

goto hospital_without_dylan

}
if (Yes) {

goto hospital_1

}
elif (No) {

goto hospital_2

}

I don’t understand why you have different goto’s :woman_shrugging:t2:
if(see_josie){
scene here for Dylan seeing Josie
}else{
scene here for Dylan going home
}

You don’t need the goto’s and labels. Just put the scene for each outcome within the curly brackets. As I stated above, the web preview on the portal does not remember choices. You need to test it on the app, go to story modifiers > flags … the gold flags are the ones you have gained, click on them to ungain them. OR you can just reset story progress.

But you can also do this on the web previewer.

You would still need to play the choice through and it still won’t remember it, it will automatically play the else … I’ve always tested on the app so if they’ve updated how the web preview works I wasn’t aware of it :sweat_smile:

Oh. You can do the same thing on the web preview. The only difference is that the web previewer won’t start off with anything gained. You’ll have to manually select the flag to gain it, but it would actually remember it as long as you don’t exit your script or refresh the page.

Ooh. Good to know! Thanks :grin:

I took away the gain and still the same issue. Whats flaging?

I just tested it on the app, same issue. I might just have to change the script…

There’s two scenes for each outcome choice if you get me…

@Jade.epi is right, having two gotos don’t make sense in this

and:

The gotos follow each other and it would automatically go to the first one assuming you had a label for it.
