When I’m writing dialogue scenes in choice script I use enter to start a new paragraph when someone else starts speaking, but when I do it messes up the code either with the mix of spaces and tabs error or the unexpected tab error. When I get rid of the spaces the dialogue scenes look really clunky, are harder to read, and not to mention grammatically incorrect. So, I’m looking for a way to have a paragraph in my scene without messing up the code. If you have any advice I would appreciate it, thank you.
that’s leaving a blank space in between, it would shown just as you see it there.
for a new paragraph without a space in between you can use the
text *line_break text new line
it would read:
text new line
I don’t know if that answers your question, also here you have some useful info about choicescript you can look.
Yes this helps thank you so much
Which do you use when you’re manually indenting text-- spaces or tabs? Sounds like the problem might be that whatever program you’re coding in has its auto-indent set to use the opposite of what you’re using, so when you hit enter you’re creating a mix of spaces/tabs and getting the resulting error message.
I’m not sure but I don’t think this does creates a new paragraph. It just introduces a
<br /> in the middle of the paragraph, iirc.
Maybe it’s not the proper definition of paragraph, but he said:
And I assumed he was trying to start a new line just pressing “enter”. And what that does is continuing the text as if it were the same paragraph.
*line_break should work as we normally use the “enter” key to go to the next line. What did I mess up?
It’s going to work, but a) the line space will be different. b) Page scrappers will see it as a single paragraph.
This is only a technicality. If you’re curious, this is the difference in the final output.
Text *line_break Text
And which one is the proper way I should use to write for a choicescript game?
If you can, prefer:
That for a new paragraph, and for a new line just the
Ok, nice. I don’t need to change the entire book then. That’s a relief jaja. Thanks!
