When I say [FIRSTNAME] In a code the charcater says FIRSTNAME


#1

Here is the line of code any problems?

NARRATOR
So... what's your name?

label first_name_input

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

if (FIRSTNAME is “”) {

    NARR
You do need a name...

goto first_name_input

} else {
continue
}

    YOU (talk_greet)
Hi I am [FIRSTNAME], This is the story of how I live with the Skorys

#2

Try this:
YOU
Hi, I am [YOU]. This is the story…


#3

Also change:

if (FIRSTNAME is “”) {

For:

if (YOU is “”) {


#4

Just write this:

NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?

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

YOU (talk_greet)
Hi! I am [FIRSTNAME], This is the story of how I live with the Skorys.


#5

So, if
Script Name: YOU
Display name: FIRSTNAME

Then script should look like this:
NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?

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

YOU (talk_greet)
Hi! I am [FIRSTNAME], This is the story of how I live with the Skorys.

However, if it is this:
Script Name: YOU
Display name: YOU

Then the script would look something like this:
NARRATOR
So… what’s your name?

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

YOU (talk_greet)
Hi! I am [YOU], This is the story of how I live with the Skorys.

So, as you can see, there is a pattern :sunglasses:

Good luck with everything!

Are you viewing your story on the computer or in the app? If you are viewing on the computer, the web previewer can not remember the name choice so you’ll just see the text in the brackets.
