Hidden Stats + Inability to Playtest


#1

Hi! I’m super new to ChoiceScript (I literally just started coding today) and I have a question.
I’m working on a game for myself and a few friends, and it’s pretty much a dating sim-esque game. So, I wanted players to be able to have in-depth stats on whoever they’re dating. (Similar to how in… uh, Choice of Robots you have statistics for your relationships with people. But with multiple stats for just one person.)
Is there a way to hide these statistics (not just an “unknown” like they did in CoR, although I’d like to know how to do that too) until you meet the person they’re for?

On a different note: I can’t play test my game. I use Safari (oops, coding on a Mac), but I think I might get the same errors on firefox. I first get a Javascript error - then an error that reads:
Couldn’t load URL: scenes/startup.txt
Error: NETWORK_ERR: XMLHttpRequest Exception 101
Is there a way to solve this?

Anyways, thanks for reading! I hope someone can help me be a little less clueless about this.

I don’t have an answer to your second question but the first one can go like so

 *stat_screen
     (All you stats over her)

And the for the other person:
*if (Rachel = true)
 *stat_screen
   All of rachels stats


 *if James = true
    *state_screen
      (all of james stats)

I am pretty sure but nor positive, try it and check

Thank you, I’ll try that.
I’m hoping that some friends of mine might have better luck on actually getting the game to work - and can then test it for me.

I have the same problem on Mac

Couldn’t load URL: scenes/startup.txt
Error: NETWORK_ERR: XMLHttpRequest Exception 101
