ChoiceScript, need help!

Does this help?


#3

thank you @MeltingPenguins but i can’t find the index.html on my firefox
edit: wait i understand now sorry
i am such a noob :sweat_smile:

opening index.html is used to test your game.
You do the coding in startup.txt, the respective scene files and choicescript_stats.txt

When testing beforehand, you can run quicktest.html in your browser, or randomtest.html (set the iterations to 10, as 10k will take loooooong)

EDIT: Writing can be done in notepad++, scrivener and similar. Just make sure that if you use a word processor that you turned off replacing … with some funky identical looking thing and so forth ("" are another example).

the txt file shouldn’t have fancy formatting encoding, but the plain standard


#5

it goes to google chrome and then it doesn’t work how do i get it to go to firefox?
(i apologize for all the questions i have never done something like this)


#6

If you’re on windows:
Right click the .html file > open with > Mozilla Firefox (you might want to set the Firefox as your default browser, too)


#7

@Szaal
this is on the index part, correct?
it just says open not open with


#8

That screenshot looks like you have Chrome setup as your default browser.
You’ll want to open it with Firefox.


#9

how do i set firefox as the default browser?


#10

Ok, if you open firefox… when you open a page, you can type in

about:preferences

The option on the very top is the default browser setting.


#11

k, i did that its still not working


#12

What’s it telling you?


#13


i clicked show stats and came up with nothing


#14

Ok, and what do you have in your startup.txt file?


#15


It says that and the rest of the choices


#16

Sounds good so far, do you have your choicescript_stats.txt file setup?


#17


also normal…?


#18

It looks like you have a fresh copy of choicescript.

I opened a fresh copy and went to my stats screen.
It should look like this:


#19
