Story help - Remembering choices

community
general

#1

Can anyone help me figure out what I am doing wrong? I am having trouble remembering choices.


#2

Have you tried making it like this:

}
“Don’t tell Liam what you wished”{
script

}


#3

It sorta works. Now I just have an error that says there is a { on line 699 that does not have a matching } but I’m pretty sure it does.


#4

Can you post the whole scene here?

INT. BLUE SCHOOL HALLWAY - DAY
@LIAM spot 1.280 74 13
@LIAM is idle_rear AND LIAM faces left
@LAYLA enters from right to spot 1.280 223 0 AND LAYLA is run_athletic_neutral_loop
&LAYLA is cry_sniff_sad_loop
&LAYLA faces left
&LIAM is idle
&LIAM faces right

    LIAM (talk_shrug_concerned)
Why are you crying?
    LAYLA (talk_sad_exhausted)
Do you really want to know? Or are you just going to make fun of me?
    LIAM (talk_armscrossed_shrug_neutral)
Why would I make fun of you?
    LAYLA (talk_repulsed)
Uh, because you were super rude to me at your party last night.
    LIAM (talk_think_neutral)
I was?
    LAYLA (talk_unsure)
You don't remember calling me a loser?
    LIAM (talk_flirt_charming)
Why would I call you a loser?
    LAYLA (talk_sad)
I don't know.

&LAYLA is idle
LIAM (talk_neutral)
Look, I promise not to say anything or make fun of you.
@LAYLA is deepbreath
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
Well last night I made a wish.
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
And I think it came true.
LIAM (talk_think_neutral)
Wow, that is strange.
LIAM (talk_shrug_concerned)
What did you wish for?
LAYLA (think_rubchin)
(Do I really want to tell him that I wished for him and Victoria to be nicer?)
Um, well…
choice “Tell Liam what you wished” {
LAYLA (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
Uh, well I wished for you and Victoria to be nicer.
LIAM (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
Oh, I see.
&LIAM is idle
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
Yeah, but now my best friend is being rude.
LIAM (talk_neutral)
And you think that’s the consequence of you wishing for us to be nicer?
LAYLA (talk_agree_happy)
Exactly.
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
But how am I supposed to fix this?
LIAM (talk_shrug_neutral)
Why don’t you wish for us to be mean again?
LAYLA (talk_exhausted)
I don’t want to though.
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
I don’t even know if it will work again.
LIAM (talk_reassure_neutral)
It’ll be ok. I’m sure you’ll figure out what to do.
LIAM (talk_neutral)
And thank you for trusting me with this. I promise I won’t forget it.
@LAYLA is blush_shy
gain told_Liam_what_you_wished
} “Don’t tell Liam what you wished” {
LAYLA (talk_sheepish_rubneck)
I don’t really feel comfortable telling you.
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
But now my best friend is being rude.
LIAM (talk_neutral)
Why don’t you make another wish?
LAYLA (talk_unsure)
That’s a good idea but I don’t know.
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
I don’t even know if it will work again.
LIAM (talk_reassure_neutral)
Well, I’m sure you’ll figure out what to do.
@LAYLA is blush_shy
gain didn’t_tell_Liam_what_you_wish
}
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
Thanks for helping.
LIAM (talk_neutral)
No problem! We should probably get to class now.
LAYLA (talk_neutral)
You’re right. Let’s go

This is the whole scene

Hi.
We need access to the whole choice scene to be able to help you figure out what is wrong. Scratch that, I see that you just posted it…

Try to put choice on a seperate line and to add a pause after the gain, see if that helps.

choice
“Tell Liam what you wished” {
scene

gain told_Liam_what_you_wished
@pause for a beat
}
“Don’t tell Liam what you wished” {
scene
gain didn’t_tell_Liam_what_you_wished
@pause for a beat

Gain names can only consist of letters, numbers, and/or underscores. Any other special characters will create errors, so you’ll have to remove the apostrophe from “gain didn’t_tell_Liam_what_you_wished”
