Post your script templates here! Official script template sharing thread

Hi! The script has an error and says that “Choices must follow dialog immediately, not a branch.” What am I doing wrong?

@LILITH DEMON is think

choice
LILITH DEMON (think)
What should I wear?

“Black Cutout Dress” {

@LILITH DEMON exits right

try moving the “}” before choice.

the word “choice” goes after the dialogue.

Ooh, this is such a great thread idea. I don’t have any of my own but I’m bumping this in case people with their own templates haven’t seen this yet :slight_smile:

Here’s a script template for a school entrance. The main character’s name is Jupiter, so you can change that to your main character by using CTRL+F, then typing in your main character’s name, then replacing all. You can change the actions of the extras to how you want them to react. They are currently set to be shocked/suprised.
You can give credit to @anniek.episode if you want. :slight_smile:

I found this website that replaces words and it will make changing the names in script templates a WHOLE lot easier. I really helps someone :blush::hugs:

Another way to do this is to:
Go on your writers portal and open the episode you want to edit.
Paste the script template
Click on the script. (Or like just click where you can write so you’re search works throughout all the script)
The Control (ctrl) or command on Mac, and then search the word, then click all next to there, and then type the word you want to use.
