Readers choosing name not working! Helpp

#1

Hey, Im trying to create a story that allows the reader to choose their character’s name, but when I take the label from example, Dara’s scripting help, it just skips right over it in my episode.

EXT. BLUE - DAY
@YOU stands screen center
@zoom reset
NARRATOR
Before the story starts, What is your name?
@YOU is dance_wavehands_happy_loop
input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (YOU)

I really wish this would workk!!
Thanks!

Change your character’s name to YOU

#3

test it on your app, type-in choices are not working on the web preview

#4

Okay I made a few adjustments, hope it works!

EXT. BLUE - DAY
@YOU stands screen center
@zoom reset
NARRATOR
Before the story starts, What is your name?
@YOU starts dance_wavehands_happy_loop
input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (YOU)

Good luck!

Okay I got it:
EXT. BLUE - DAY
@YOU stands screen center
@zoom reset
NARRATOR
Before the story starts, What is your name?
@YOU starts dance_wavehands_happy_loop
input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done [YOU]

If you want to say the name, then do this (you might think this is same but no)

NARRATOR

Hello (NAME)!

You used the wrong brackets I think

Thank you!

The way you originally had it is 100% correct. Like @apes and I stated above, you just need to test the code out in the app because the web previewer does not show typed in codes.

Once again, thank you alot!
I was kind of worried and it caused me to quit scripting for the night cause of frustration :woman_facepalming:
