❤ UNDERSTANDING: The Layout Command For Choices 💜

JemU776’s back with another tutorial :chef: :blue_heart: Hey everyone, today I’m going to talk about the layout command :wave: :purple_heart:

2 regular choices WITHOUT layout:

nolayout1

#Code:

EXT. FG CABIN WOODS OUTHOUSE DAY

&zoom reset

&speechbubble reset

NARR
Should we enter this outhouse?

choice
“Go for it.”{

}“Leave it.”{

}

2 choices with layout:

layout1

#Code:

EXT. FG CABIN WOODS OUTHOUSE DAY

&zoom reset

&speechbubble reset

NARR
Should we enter this outhouse?

choice [layout]
“Go for it.”{

}“Leave it.”{

}


3 regular choices WITHOUT layout:

nolayout2

#Code:

NARR
Should we enter this outhouse?

choice
“Go for it.”{

}“Leave it.”{

}“Destory it.”{

}

3 choices with layout:

layout2

#Code:

NARR
Should we enter this outhouse?

choice [layout]
“Go for it.”{

}“Leave it.”{

}“Destory it.”{

}


4 regular choices WITHOUT layout:

nolayout3

#Code:

NARR
If we enter, what type of weapons should we bring with us?

choice
“Knife”{

}“Bat”{

}“Mace”{

}“Sword”{

}

4 choices with layout:

layout3

#Code:

NARR
If we enter, what type of weapons should we bring with us?

choice [layout]
“Knife”{

}“Bat”{

}“Mace”{

}“Sword”{

}

It’s very good for 2, 3, 4 choices. If you use it on 5 options for a choice, it won’t make a difference (whether you write layout or not, it looks the same):

What the [layout] command basically does: it puts the choice options side by side rather than underneath each other.

Thanks for checking this tip out, have a great day or night where you’re at! :heart: :sparkling_heart: :gift_heart:

Bump!

Bump :lollipop:

love this! thanks for the help :hugs:
do you know if you can layout 6 choices in one column? like your first example? ↓

BUMP!

I’ve never actually seen that, you could use overlays of the choices and stack them on top of each other in a column however honestly, this is something I wouldn’t recommend because it might end up going all the way down to the bottom of the screen and this would suck for tablet users who can’t see the bottom and top portions of the screen :sweat_smile:

Bump!!!
