Narrator name appearance


#1

NARRATOR (YOU)
Pineapples on Pizza!

Although @YOU is entered in as [FIRSTNAME], why doesn’t it appear on screen as

YOU
Pineapples on Pizza!

Instead, I get

FIRSTNAME
Pineapples on Pizza!


#2

If you’re using the web previewer it’s totally normal! Although you should see it on your phone


#3

But on Mobile it says,

FIRSTNAME
And that was the day the Pineapples sold out.

I want it to say YOU


#4

Ah, I see your problem.

When you give the reader’s the option to choose their name, write YOU instead of FIRSTNAME.

    NARRATOR
So... what's your name?

label first_name_input

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(YOU)

if (YOU is “”) {

    NARR
You do need a name...

goto first_name_input

} else {
continue
}


#5

Oh wait did you let readers type in their name?


#6

It all says YOU

So, should I put,

NARRATOR (FIRSTNAME)?


#7

You’re confusing me. Did you let readers type in their name?


#8

So you want it to say YOU ? In that case you need to change the display name of your character.


#9


#10

Can you please answer my question or I can’t help you.


#11

Yup.


#12

Which command did you use to let the readers choose their own name?


#13

POL


#14

oh…


#15

Did you put it in the first of the CC or last?


#16

It shouldn’t matter.


#17

Well t kind of does since you let the reader type i their name after the CC then it will just appear the YOU


#18

As long as the choice to type in your name isn’t after you start writing out a full scene dialogue then it should not affect it… lol.


#19

Then there is no point, you can’t put FIRSTNAME as a narrator you can only put the YOU


#20

So do I have to make another character called YOU at this point?
Cause I think the problem is Script named is YOU…probably should’ve put YOU1 or something
