I Can't see my stats


#1

Okay so I just started using choicescipt and I wanted to make a small little fight scene just to test out what I know but when I add the variable it doesn’t come up on the show stats screen. It does exist because if I use the if command and the variable it does work. The problem being I just can’t see it during the game.

Sorry if I’m doing something stupid

Have you added the variable to the stats screen (which can be found in the text file choicescript_stats.txt)?
Like:

*stat_chart
    text randomvariable
    percent otherrandomvariable

And don’t worry about doing something stupid. We all do that from time to time.
(a downside of learning stuff by trying things until something actually works)

That did it, thanks for the quick response!

Did you read through the tutorials yet? This is pretty basic stuff.
In case the answer is no, you can find the basic tutorial here: https://www.choiceofgames.com/make-your-own-games/choicescript-intro/
and here’s the tutorial for the stats screen: https://www.choiceofgames.com/make-your-own-games/customizing-the-choicescript-stats-screen/

Yeah I read through all the ones but the stats screen one, whoops.
