What code do you need to use to remember choices? I’m trying to write a story where choices matter.

Try this thread:

Thanks!

How do you animate different food overlays? Like make them in time with the character and stuff.

@Jade.epi @JemU776 it worked :star_struck:
thanks so much guys. Yall sweet :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


dara amarie made this thread that helped me a lot with animating overlays. if you want a food to be within your character’s hand whenever they perform an animation, use props.

@add PropName to CHARACTER
@remove PropName from CHARACTER

would the prop be considered the overlay? and is there a list of props that can be used?

yes, if you go to the writer’s portal & click the script, there is a list of props that you can use along with the names. just scroll down beneath the character names & the animations. props aren’t overlays because they can’t be animated or changed by the author.

So you want like a dressing game, where the reader picks something like fashion toned or fashion colored and when they do it opens up another menu where they choose clothing from that section, right :thinking:

Yes, I have about 8 different colors to choose from and wach color has 2-3 different outfits connected to them. So I need to make additional choice sections for those outfits under the designated color that they are.

I don’t know wich template you use but this code will give you:

traditional exist out of 3 options
colord exist out of 8 colors that have 3 separate options
two toned exits out of 3 options
a button that allows the reader to go back and choose another fashion option
a button that allows the reader to go back to the story line

Thank you! The colors are rose, peach, turquoise, purple, blue, grey, green and yellow.

I used Dara’s closet template. It’s a wedding dress theme dressing game.

I will add this template to my script! This seriously helped me out!

Quick questions…

  1. Do all the new features (like timed choices, tappable overlays, text overlays, etc.) work in Ink too?
  2. I’m pretty sure I did everything right for a text overlay (pretty much followed Dara Amarie’s template by the letter.) but it didn’t show up in the previewer. (and the scene wasn’t set in a black background.)
    Does the text overlays not show up in web previewer?
  3. How do you input a name, and make it appear as the character’s name on the speechbubble?
    For example, the reader chooses to get named Ivy. How can I make the character’s display name, on top of the speechbubble?
    Thank you in advance!

My script isn’t working, can anyone help?
