SCRIPT ERRORS you just can't seem to fix!

I noticed you replied to my other thread about remembering past choices, here are a few things that you might have missed from that thread:

Thank you for replying! I’ve also messaged you on Instagram… sorry about the ambush!

I feel like I’m being really really stupid, I just don’t understand!

So this is right now? So how do I make it remember this choice for the next scene? @Dara.Amarie thank you for all of your help!

It’s coming up with the same error, I have no idea what I’ve done :frowning:

You’re still missing this part. Your gain names cannot have spaces.

Also, the gains need to be inside the yes options. You’re putting them in the “no” options.

I think this would be the simpler method for you:

Can i have help please

@Faith.S For some reason, until your background/overlay is look over and approved by the Episode Team, you will be unable to use it. So you might need to wait for some time (depends how long, it varies.)

@Dara.Amarie Could you please help me with issue:



I’ve added extra brackets EVERYWHERE and it won’t frickin’ work!

ok thank you

On line 67, you don’t have the @ sign in front of the pause

ty sm it WORKED.

I don’t know why this is happening but when I try to get this overlay to work it won’t show in the story.

You need to add the zone number to the shift command

I made a choice to either kiss someone on the cheek or on the lips, whenever I choose to kiss on the lips it brings me to the kiss on cheek label instead, when I choose to kiss on the cheek it works, just the kiss on the lips is messed up.

I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong!

MAYA (think)

Maya is definitely the most beautiful girl I’ve ever gone out with.
I was surprised she even said yes to going on a date with me.
@RAFAEL is blush
NARRATOR (RAFAEL)
I hope this is the beginning of something amazing with her.

The worst thing is being in the wrong place at the wrong time–
– you see things you never wanted to see.
I just happened to be taking out the trash when May returned from her date with whoever that guy was.
And I had to see her say goodbye to him.
She kissed him goodbye, and my stomach dropped.
Watching her kiss someone else hurts so much more than I anticipated.
Sel is wrong to think that there’s “something there” between Maya and I.
If there was, she would be kissing me goodbye, not him.

I wish I was him, saying goodbye to May after a whole night out with her.
She kissed him on the cheek goodbye, and my stomach dropped.
I know it was only a simple gesture, but watching her be with another guy hurts more than I anticipated.

It gave me an error saying unexpected expression.

It worked!! Thank you :heart:

Okay so I’ve literally have been staring at my script for so long trying to figure out how to fix this error. I don’t know if I’m literally just blind or there is something wrong with the script. But here’s how it goes

@VIVIAN walks to screen center

@pause for 2

label choosing_outfit

    VIVIAN (think)
(What should I wear today?)

choice
“Outfit 1”{

@VIVIAN walks to screen center in zone 1

@VIVIAN changes into VIVIAN_Comfortable

}

“Outfit 2”{

@VIVIAN walks to screen center in zone 1

@VIVIAN changes into VIVIAN_Cute

}
“Outfit 3”{

@VIVIAN walks to screen center in zone 1

@VIVIAN changes into VIVIAN_Trendy

}

@VIVIAN walks to screen center in zone 2

@pause for 3

    VIVIAN (talk_think)
Is this the right outfit?

choice
“Yep! This is the one!”{

    VIVIAN (flirt_fingersnap)
(I look awesome!)

}

"Uh.. Eh... Nah"{

goto choosing_outfit

The error is at line 255 which is the Outfit 2 choice.

Expected CHARACTER or SCENE change. Found ““Outfit 2”{” instead. Did you forget to CAPITALIZE the name, or close the ( ) around the animation.

I’m so confused. Hahaha.

Please help.

Thank you, in advance. :slight_smile:

You can’t skip a whole line between an end bracket and the next choice option. The next option needs to be on the same line as the end bracket or on the very next line the same way “Outfit 3” is on the very next line.

oh see? now i get it. haha! thank you so much! it’s cleared now :smiley:
