@crazy_fun101

Here’s the template with gains:

How do I refer back to a custom name, like when the reader can choose their own name., in a dialog. For example, when a characters want to speak to the YOU character and I want him/her to say something like ’ Goodmorning, [name chosen by the reader]’ How do I make that work?

CHARACTER
Good morning, [YOU]

But when I did that, the character would literally say ’ Goodmorning, You’ and that’s not what I want.
I meant like, when the reader chooses a new in the beginning, whatever name they want. I want that the characters refer to that name in their dialog. Like if I was a reader, and chose the name Michael and someone greets me like ‘Hey [name]’, I want him to say ‘Hey Michael’

What’s the display name of the character?

The display name is just YOU, bc I didnt know how to add a custom name in.

Use this code:

input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (YOU)

Ah, thanks!! It worked. :slight_smile:

Can someone help me with this? When I preview it it’s like when you put a pause for a beat before a transition.

Use & instead of @ for characters placement and zoom :slight_smile:
