Need Help with Character Name & Character Customization Templates

Note: This is for an ink story
Hi, so I am making a story for the Missed Connections contest, and I used @Dara.Amarie’s name and character customization template and followed the steps… but when I test the story out… the name I wrote on the app doesn’t show up… if anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know. (I can provide pictures of the script it you want me too.)

I think I can help.

Grabbing the screenshots now

what was the error?

Grabbing more screenshots, just had to update my Episode app on an old phone

is your script and display name FMC?

I want the readers to be able to choose the name

Change your code to:

input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (FMC)

oh and you may want to put the walking after before the label as if the reader is wanting to click a new section the character will walk AGAIN and will annoy the reader

And contest stories need to keep the readers reading to drive reader retention.

Thank you! That fixed it!!

Yeah, I was gonna say that as well,

Before you beat me to it @Apes ( ͠° ͟ʖ ͡°). :sweat_smile:


Now what did I do wrong?

put [FMC] instead of a NAME inside

I figured it out, I’m sorry…

it’s ok :smiley:

Thank you for your help, I haven’t written in months and decided now to come back lol
