Lol IM SO CONFUSED! (lmao I'm always confused)

So, Its hard to explain but I need help.
I’m starting out on episode and I have 2 chapters.
At the end of my first chapter I have one choice with 2 story lines
(ex. below)
16%20PM

in my next chapter in my “if(shoot him)” story line I have 2 choices.

so my question is, in my next chapter, do I have to to the “if statement” for each of my choices?


#2

Firstly, I want to say:

NARR
Dialogue.

choice
<PREMIUM>“Shoot him” {

NARR
Scene for shooting him.

gain shoot_him

} <PREMIUM>“Spare his life” {

NARR
Scene for sparing him.

gain spare_him

}

NARR
Dialogue.

Then next time, you want the choice remembered:

NARR
Dialogue.

if (shoot_him) {

NARR
Scene for remembering that you shot him.

} elif (spare_him) {

NARR
Scene for remembering that you spared him.

}

NARR
Dialogue.

*Note that if (shoot him) is not correct since there is a space between the two words and that cannot be used in a gain choice and a choice that you want remembered.

thank you so much!
im really bad at remembering choices


#4

You said that you want 2 choices for the if (shoot_him) option. To do that, you would do something like this:

}

Then somewhere in your script:

label hurt_him

NARR
The 2 choices for picking the choice that you shot him.

choice
“choice one”{

NARR
Bla bla bla.

}“choice two”{

NARR
Bla bla bla.

}

goto main_story

label main_story

NARR
Storyline goes back to the main one the reader was playing.


#5

what does the goto_hurt him mean?
and is that nesseary because I have done the choices without that script


#6

This leads to label hurt_him

P.S this is just an example.
The goto can be anything: examples include begin_story, choose_gender, etc. and the labels can be anything too, so long as they have their corresponding gotos : )
(And long as they do not have spaces in between them or their aren’t multiple labels for a goto-but you can have multiple gotos leading to a label)

And hi, it’s not necessary to put in your script-you can use it if you want : )

Okay, thank you sm
