Reader can customize name and Chacter pt.2

#1

So I made a character that a reader can name and customize. What do I do if another character wants to say the customized character’s name? Do I put @YOU or no?

EXAMPLE:

YOU (arms_crossed)
What do you mean?

Daren (laugh_giggle)
Look (YOU), I don’t want to be mean but that dress doesn’t suit you.

How do I put the name that the person chose in the (YOU)?

So they told me I had to put [YOU] and I did but it doesn’t work.
What should I do?

What I have in the begining of the story:
#Avatar-Female{
#@FAMILYMEMBER1 stands screen center in zone 3
@YOU enters from left to screen center
NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?
label first_name_input
input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(NAME)
if (NAME is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}

The sentence I need to put it in but doesn’t work:

CLERGY PERSON (talk_neutral_loop)
And do you Damian Bonnay accept [YOU] as your beloved wife?


#2

If this is the code you are using, then you take whatever is inside the parentheses and put straight brackets around it.

CLERGY PERSON (talk_neutral_loop)
And do you Damian Bonnay accept [NAME] as your beloved wife?


#3

{NAME} or (NAME)


#4

So put input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done{NAME} ?
or
input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done[NAME]


#5

So put input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done{NAME} ?
or do I put
input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done[NAME]


#6

No


#7

Where it says

Look (YOU), I don’t want to be mean but that dress doesn’t suit you.

How do I put the name that the person chose in the (YOU)?


#8

No no no. This is the code you are using in your script:

#Avatar-Female{
#@FAMILYMEMBER1 stands screen center in zone 3
@YOU enters from left to screen center
NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?
label first_name_input
input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(NAME)
if (NAME is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}

You have NAME inside the parentheses in that code, so take that word and wrap straight brackets around it in the dialogue.

CLERGY PERSON (talk_neutral_loop)
And do you Damian Bonnay accept [NAME] as your beloved wife?


#9

Look [YOU], I don’t want to be mean but that dress doesn’t suit you.


#10

So I have to put: CLERGY PERSON (talk_neutral_loop)
And do you Damian Bonnay accept [NAME] as your beloved wife?

instead of:

CLERGY PERSON (talk_neutral_loop)
And do you Damian Bonnay accept [YOU] as your beloved wife?

:thinking:
