Self Chosen Name

Hi!

So i’m writing a story, but i’m already stuck…
I know how people can write in their own names when they make a character, but i don’t know how to use the name they typed in for coding. I hope you get what i mean.

If not, let me give you an example:

NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?

label first_name_input

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FIRSTNAME)

if (FIRSTNAME is “”) {

NARR
You do need a name…

goto first_name_input

So i already have that.
But since they’re making a really important character i need to know the name if the character needs to say something. For example:

(name)
That’s a good idea!

or:

Janis
(name), can you show me where they got it?

Like that.

Thanks for your help!

For CC type of MCs, on your script you just type the script name of your MC. The letting your reades choose their own names only affects Display name.

Janis
[NAME], can you show me where they got it?

Must be square brackets though…

Thanks for your reply!
I just started writing so i don’t really know what CC and MC means, sorry.
Can you maybe explain it more?

CC: Character Customisation. There’s different tempates (created by writers) for CC.

MC: Main Character of the story.
