Error of indentation

I’m having trouble with the indentation, even though I’ve made the indent.

The error I’m getting is "

My code looks like this: Invalid indent? Expected an #option here, not *set

    *hide_reuse #You would work out a little and maybe even catch up with Blaine.
    *hide_reuse #Go to the weapon's room.

A lot of it is deleted, but the coding is all there. I think the “Hide_reuse” is messing up.

as in, I should delete one indent?

no, add one indent level si its not on the same indent as the choice

I don’t really understand how, But I added that indentation, then deleted it again so it wouldn’t get any error, and now that You’ve advised me to add another one, It suddenly got fixed. I’m so very sorry for the bother, but thank you!!

Looking at your code, it’s easy to see how mistakes are made. Simplify it with *goto if you can; put the armoury stuff into its own section. You should try to avoid getting more than three or four indentations deep.
