Please Help Me With This


#1

So i’m one part of my story let’s readers choose their own name.
And i’ve wrote down name – it’s not working.
What do I do? What did I do wrong? What do I write so the readers chosen name stays


#2

NARRATOR (FIRSTNAME)
write dialogue whatever you want here


#3

It doesn’t work


#4

You are doing it correct if your script name is YOU. You are just missing the space between Narrator and the parenthesis.


#5

Script should be:
(2 tabs here) NARRATOR (FIRSTNAME)
(1 tab here) Do You ever think bout losing someone - a loved person


#6

Plz don’t laugh at me - but what is a tab?


#7

Copy it and paste it to your story.

  NARRATOR
So... what's your name?

label first_name_input

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FEM1)

if (FEM 1 is “”) {

    NARRATOR
You do need a name...

goto first_name_input

} else {
continue
}

############################ AVATAR CREATOR ####################################
label avatar

Or go to the script template and there will be costumizing and take the name what you are going as a main character.

And the end of the

EXT. GRIFFITH PARK - DAY
Who is going to say the NARRATOR?

YOU or the FEM1?

If it’s the FEM1 just write NARR (FEM1)

If it’s you just write NARR

If you need anything just ask.


#8

It should be
NARRATOR (FEM1)
because that’s how you refer to your character in your script


#9

According to Merriam-Webster (it’s important to cite sources), a tab is a key located on the keyboard of a computer and it used to move several spaces at a time or move to a particular position in a document.

Moved to Directing Helps and Tips since it involves coding/scripting. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about where to correctly create topics. :wink:


#11

But how do I continue the story? Like how do I make another character say the mc characters name?


#12

NARR

So… what’s your name?

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FEM1)

NARR

Cue the story!

EXT. RANDOM BACKGROUND – DAY

NARRATOR (FEM1)

Do you ever think about losing someone-a loved person.

Later on in the script, when someone addresses FEM1 (the mc) by their name, they say:

RANDOM PERSON (talk_greet)

Hey [FEM1], nice to meet you!


#13

what if the mc original name is YOU


#14

Never mind I got it
