I need help with chapters!


#1

I’ve been working on my game, and I’ve become caught up with a certain command.

When performing the

*scene_list
startup
chatpter1
(all the rest of the scenes here)

And then finishing a scene with *goto chapter1

I am returned with an error saying “Permission Denied.” All help would be much appreciated.

i believe you need to use *goto_scene and then go to a specific label in chapter1 if you need to–but, if it’s linear, why not just use *finish?

also, if you copied it verbatim, it could quite possibly be that you spelled chapter wrong.

I believe a simple *finish can also work as long as you’ve got the correct chapter order in the startup.txt file. I don’t know if you need to do that for when you send your story into CoG, but I don’t bother with it. Works fine.

I think this might be the solution (Copy/Pasta from the wiki):

If you are using Windows 7 (and possibly Vista), when you download
the file, right click on it and select properties. At the very bottom of
the properties window there will be a button that says Unblock. Select that button and press OK
before extracting. This will help prevent a possible error that can
result from those earlier versions of Windows “blocking” the files
because they originated from a different computer.
