I don’t remember making a ‘blah blah.txt’ at all? Like i don’t even know where to find this thing I went and checked all my files. Not sure what this is referring to esp because it’s got a space in between and I’m pretty sure the scene files can’t work like that… right?

Kind of weirded out that there’s a blah blah.txt floating around in my game that i didn’t even know existed. im kind of spooked.

any help it greatly appreciated!


Is there “blah blah” in *scene_list? Or somethere else in the text?


Blah blah is the fake text that quicktest uses when it hits an “input_text.” It must have to do with that.

Also, you can’t just *temp MentisBC. If you want it to be a numerical variable, *temp MentisBC 0.


Thanks (and also thanks for the extra tip)! figured out where that was coming from.
