Good day guys!
I’m Maria, author of Angoria and I’m here to help you with customization script templates !
For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, these templates are a piece of coding you type while writing your story in the Writers’ Portal, in order to enable the reader to customize the characters. It takes hours to create a code like this, but fear not! I have links for both customization script templates, INK and Limelight!

INK Male Customize Character Script Template

Limelight Male Customize Character Script Template

If you are facing any errors, screenshot the problem, send it below and I’d be happy to help!
Hope that helped! REMEMBER. Always give credit to the creators!

Does anyone know how to have a speechbubble appear with no character?
Like Background voices.

Yes! Create a new character and put nothing in the display name box.

But I don’t want the character to appear on screen. Just the speechbubble.

Make the character appear offscreen like this:
@CHARACTER stands offscreen right

It worked! Thanks for the help:)
