Script Help, Please!

Hey ya’ll! I need a bit of help with my script! For some reason, my previewer and app won’t go play anything after if (texthim is “TEXT HIM!”) { and I’m starting to get really kind of frustrated and it’s a key point in the episode so I really need it. Could someone please take a look at my script and find out why it’s not working? It just stops at the end of my intro and that’s it. Thanks a bunch!

Hey Dean, it’s Nalani Martin. I hope it’s okay for me to be texting you!
sound phone_text

You need a closing barrack at the end }

Also, do you have an elif or else after that? That could also be the issue.

I have the closing bracket further down in my script and I also have else since there’s only two previous options but i just didn’t include those on this post since the chapter won’t go past the if part

Ive used the if elif else option before and never had this problem so im really confused

Try resetting the progress.

Also, are the choice name the same thing? That could be the issue or you don’t have a choice name next to the choice before the if/else.

Its the same choice names too! That’s what i dont understand :flushed: unless its the actual choice itself.

So i put

Choice (texthim)
And then my two choices

Could that be the problem?

So, your choice looks like?

Choice (texthim)

} else {


   NALANI (think_loop)

(Should I take Aunt Kelly’s advice and text him?)

Choice (texthim)
all my dialogue goes here
dialogue goes here

That’s the original choice so what im trying to do ia do an after effect of the original choice

I don’t know why it won’t work.
Maybe @apes can help.

So what you’re saying is that it’s skipping this?

When you choose “TEXT HIM!” and then come to this, it goes past the if statement, right?


Could you show a bit more of your script? Can PM me if you’d like but that is strange, it should work :thinking:
