Hi! I have a quick question. I’m not using the usual input option for naming the main character in my story. I’m having the player choose a name out of some that I have selected (each have their own impact on the story itself). If you played Classic, you probably remember having to do this. What I’m trying to figure out is how to link the player’s choice of name into conversation. Usually with inputing, you can just use [NAME] and the player’s inputed name just magically shows up. But with choosing a name it doesn’t work that way for some reason. Any ideas on what I should do? I’d rather I didn’t have to use the whole “if” thing because that’s too much work lol

You know I was about to suggest the if/elif/else… because it’s what I know will work…
let’s ask someone else

@Purple_Ghost what do you think?

Hi! I have a question.

Say, the MC wants to ask the love interest to have him call her a nickname & for the script to remember that… can that be done?

Like, can it be done in the style of input_firstname here? Because I know that the script will remember what the player puts in as their first name… is this making any sense? :thinking:

It dows make sense, but I have the following questions:

  1. Do you want the pet name to be the name that shows up on the CHAR’s speech bubbles?
  2. Will you give the reader options or will they type in the pet name?

You’d have to name the choice.

choice (NAME)
“”Jessica” {
} “Natalie” {
}

And just use [NAME] when someone says that name.
