Need help with outfit choices please!

You can still go to a helping thread, I’m sure they’ll be able to help you more! :sweat_smile:

This is the code I use for changing outfits. You have a lot of errors in your script, so try replacing that with this code and filling it out

label dressing_game

CHARACTER (think_rubchin)
(What should I wear?)

choice
“Outfit 1” {

Dialogue here.

}

“Outfit 2” {

Dialogue here.

}

“Outfit 3” {

Dialogue here.

}

@pause for a beat

CHARACTER (think_rubchin)
(Is this what I want to wear?)

choice
“Yes” {

Dialogue here.

}

“Try something else” {

goto dressing_game

}


I’ve got a different error now lol :’)
any advice? :slight_smile:

It seems like you have choices within choices within choices. You can’t have a choice within a choice. End your each outfit choice with a } bracket after Katie comments about the outfits. Then have another outfit choice right after, not your decision choice after. After all three outfit choices are done THEN you can have a separate choice option for your decision.

I am now convinced choice is not a word now. :sleepy:

Or just send your script, I can try to fix it for ya. :sweat_smile:

lol trust me I am confused with it all, I got the tip from another forum haha

Here is my script if you can alter it that would be fab :slight_smile:

INT. WALKINCLOSET - DAY
@KYRA changes into KYRA_default
@KATIE changes into KATIE_default
@cut to zone 2
@zoom on 539 380 to 106% in 0
@KYRA spot 0.903 98 158 AND KYRA faces right AND KATIE spot 0.921 231 150 AND KATIE faces left

label dressing_game
KYRA (talk_neutral_loop)
Which outfit do you think I should wear? I have 3 outfits to choose from:

choice
“Jumper and Jeans” {
@KYRA changes into KYRA_date1
@KYRA is dustoff_neutral_loop
KATIE (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
Might be a bit too warm, it’s still a heatwave outside.
It’s up to you though.
KYRA (think_rubchin)
(Is this what I want to wear?)
choice
“No”
goto dressing_game
{
“Yes”{
KYRA (talk_pointup_happy)
I’m happy with this outfit
KATIE (talk_excited_happy)
Took you long enough
@KYRA is laugh_giggle AND KATIE is laugh_giggle
}

“Red Jacket and Jeans” {
@KYRA changes into KYRA_date2
@KYRA is dustoff_neutral_loop
KATIE (talk_handsopen_happy_loop)
Very stylish girl. But what do you think?
KYRA (think_rubchin)
(Is this what I want to wear)
choice
“No”
goto dressing_game
{
“Yes”{
KYRA (talk_pointup_happy)
I’m happy with this outfit
KATIE (talk_excited_happy)
Took you long enough
@KYRA is laugh_giggle AND KATIE is laugh_giggle
}

“Jacket and Skirt” {
@KYRA changes into KYRA_date3
@KYRA is dustoff_neutral_loop
KATIE (talk_handsopen_happy_loop)
Looking hot girl! But what do you think?
KYRA (think_rubchin)
(Is this what I want to wear)
choice
“No”

“Yes”{
KYRA (talk_pointup_happy)
I’m happy with this outfit

@KYRA changes into KYRA_default

Slight problem with this :sweat_smile:

It should say:

INT. WALKINCLOSET - DAY
@KYRA changes into KYRA_default
@KATIE changes into KATIE_default
@cut to zone 2
@zoom on 539 380 to 106% in 0
&KYRA spot 0.903 98 158 AND KYRA faces right AND KATIE spot 0.921 231 150 AND KATIE faces left

Their spot commands need to go after the zone otherwise they show up in zone 1.

The script works, but my characters are no longer on the screen :confused:

AHHHH that’s right. :sweat_smile: Thought the cut was already in zone 1. Thanks!

Refer to @JemU776’s comment above. Sorry about that. :slight_smile:

That’s OK :wink:

Thanks for you help guys :slight_smile:
Having trouble saving now (but that’s my net playing up lol) fingers crossed be sorted soon :smiley:

IT’S WORKING!! :smiley: :smiley: YAY haha
thank you guys, much appreciated!

If you do a clothing choice scene, will it be remembered when continuing a new ep/chapter (just checking, not sure how long my scene will yet to know if it needs to be remembered haha

If you want it to be remembered, you need to give your choice a name.

Example:

choice (NAME)
“Jumper and Jeans” {
@KYRA changes into KYRA_date1

Check out: HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)

According to that thread “Name your choice by adding the name next to the word choice and put it inside parentheses. Choice names cannot have spaces: they can only be consisted of letters, numbers, and/or underscores.”

Here’s an example:

NARRATOR
What would you like to wear?

choice (OUTFIT)
“Blue Dress” {

@YOU changes into Blue_Dress

} “Red Dress” {

@YOU changes into Red_Dress

} “Green Dress” {

@YOU changes into Green_Dress

}

NARR
Bla bla bla…

And then, to have it remembered:

if ( OUTFIT is “Blue Dress”) {
[scene for Blue Dress choice here]

} elif ( OUTFIT is “Red Dress”) {
[scene for Red Dress choice here]

} else {
[scene for Green Dress choice here]
}

Hope this helps : )

Also, you’re welcome :wink:

Me again lol
I want the other character to change her outfit, but it won’t let me because of the labelling?
On the left hand side of screen in script tools error box it says “Duplicate Label dressing_game”

You need to give the label another name.

So, can change to:
label dressing_game2

And remember to change all the gotos for the 2nd dressing game to goto dressing_game2 (so add that 2 at the end) If you forget to do this, then the goto(s) will lead back to the first dressing game.

HI guys
What’s the label I use if I want to use a choice game for dates to ask questions about each other?
