Menu code with choices instead of tappable overlays?

I’m trying to make a menu for my story but I don’t want to use tappable overlays. I want to just have these 5 choices:

SUPPORT THE AUTHOR

CHECK POINTS

FAQ

CREDITS

END THE STORY

can anyone help with this? :,)

NARR
Thanks for reading this chapter. You can now check things you want or go to the next episode.

choice
“Support the author” {

}
“Check points” {

]
“FAQ” {

}
“Credits” {

}
“End of the story” {

}

And you fill that with the info you want.
I suggest Dara’s page with tutorials and guides for simple coding. :smiling_face:

i tried that but it’s not working? :frowning:

here is the code:

INT. LH. INTRO
&cut to zone 1
&zoom reset
@transition fade in black in 5
@pause for 6
&speechbubble reset
label OUTRO_MENU

Choice - OUTRO MENU {

label OUTRO_MENU

Hello! You’ve reached the end. Select one of the options below.

Please select one of the options below.

choice
“ROMANCE POINTS GAINED WITH ELLERY” {

    NARRATOR
Haze currently has [4845286470909952] romantic point(s) with Ellery.

@pause for 0.3
goto POINTS_SYSTEM_CHECK

} “ROMANCE POINTS GAINED WITH MONDAY” {

    NARRATOR
Haze currently has [6239601566875648] romantic point(s) with Monday.

@pause for 0.3
goto POINTS_SYSTEM_CHECK

} “MAIN MENU.” {
NARRATOR
Okay!

goto OUTRO_MENU

}

}“SUPPORT THE AUTHOR.”{

choice (support_author)

NARRATOR
You are amazing! Thank you for your support!

}“FAQ.”{
label QandA

    NARRATOR
What questions would you like to ask?

choice
“When will the next episode be released?” {
NARRATOR
I’m sorry but I don’t know. I write to get out my emotions whether they’re positive or negative whenevr I have motivation and time to do so. I’m an adult, struggling with housing and job security. But I promise, I’ll do my very best to write fast and efficiently.

goto QandA

} “How many love interests are there for Haze?” {
NARRATOR
Just two! :slight_smile:

goto QandA

} “What are ‘points’ and how do I earn them?” {
NARRATOR
Haze will earn, lose, or not gain any points with his love interests depending on the choices you pick.
For instance, if Haze has more romance points with Monday than Ellery, you will unlock more romanctic scenes and dialogue with Monday.
Same is vice versa.
You decide who Haze ends up with. :slight_smile:
I hope that made sense? XD

goto QandA

} “How many chapters will this story have?” {
NARRATOR
I do not know yet, sorry! Hopefully no more than 20-25? :slight_smile:

goto QandA

} “How often do you update your stories” {
NARRATOR
I do not have a set schedule due to my ongoing conflicts IRL. Sorry!

goto QandA

} “I’m done asking questions.” {

	NARRATOR
Are you sure you’re done asking questions?

choice
“Yes, I’m done.” {
goto OUTRO_MENU
} “No, take me back.” {
goto QandA
}}

}“END THE CHAPTER.”{
NARRATOR
Okay!
}

 NARR
End of chapter 1.
Thank you for reading!

It looks like you didn’t put NARRATOR text right before gem choices, so after

"Support the author" {
NARR
Would you like to support me?
choice (support_author)
<GEMS:5>"Absolutely" {
}
<GEMS:8>"Text here" {
}

#the rest of the codes and all that here
}

ok but now it says " [There is a { on line 1701 that does not have a matching }"

code:
