I want a variable like ‘tall’ to mean something like ‘*set var -10’, unless you have previously chosen a variable like ‘attractive’, and then choosing that variable ‘tall’, sets ‘*set var’ to +10. I didn’t see any info on this anywhere.
*choice ....#Be tall. ........*set var "tall"
When you need to change the numeric value.
*if (var = "tall") ....*if not (attractive) ........*set variable - 10 ....*if (attractive) ........*set variable + 10
Another way to do this is
*if (var = "tall") and (attractive) ....*set variable + 10 ....*goto next_part *else ....*set variable - 10 ....*goto next_part
Here I am assuming that the tall variable is a string, the attractive variable is boolean and the “variable” variable is a numeric value.
You can read more about
*if on this wiki page.
Hope this helps!
ok so, i have two choices #beautiful and #pretty
choosing beautiful gets you a social 20% boost and tall an additonal 10%. problem is choosing #pretty and then #tall should decrease social score by 10% but it stays the same
*set var true
*if (var = “tall”)
*if not (beautiful = true)
*set social -10
*if (beautiful = true)
*set social +10
what am i doing wrong?
So you made “tall” string (text variable) and then made a new variable called “var” as boolean (variables which are either true or false) but in the fourth line you are applying it as a string, that’s one problem.
If your variable is not a string then you don’t need to do the ( = " " ) thing. You can just do
*if (beautiful), but if your variable is a string then you would do the ( = " " ) thing.
Here is my attempt at doing it.
What is your height? *choice ..#Tall ....*set height "tall" (this variable is a string) ....*goto next_part ..#Short ....*set height "short" ....*goto next_part *label next_part So are you beautiful or just pretty? *choice ..#Beautiful ....*set beautiful true (this variable is a boolean) ....*goto part2 ..#Pretty ....*set beautiful false (sidenote: if you created this variable as false then you don't need to set it again) ....*goto part2 *label part2 *if (height = "tall") ..*if (beautiful) ....*set social + 10 ..*if not (beautiful) ....*set social - 10
An important thing to remember is that if you created a variable as a string then it would remain a string, a boolean would stay a boolean and a numeric variable would stay as a numeric variable.
In short, you can’t change the nature of a variable midway.
