You messsed with various Former tech over the months trying to form a better understanding, but to no avail.

Hmm… try clicking the </> button before you paste your code. For now, it’s hard to read your code :point_up_2:t4:


#3

i just added the indentions i saw that


#4

ok i actually fixed it this time


#5

I noticed that all of the options require the player to have at least one stat that’s above 10. Is there any chance that the player doesn’t fulfill this requirement?


#6

no I made sure that previous stat choices ensured the player always has at least one option open.


#7

the code worked fine as I have a whole chapter behind it. It got messed up when i tried to make a scene transition in between.


#8

Hmm…
So you got the error when you click the NEXT button in-game?

But anyway, what does the bug report tells you? And if you don’t mind, can I see the line-code indicated on the report?


#9

yes the error occurs when you click next.
17 line 161: Expected choice body
i looked in my code where it says the problem is and it’s in the middle of a text body so that doesn’t make any sense


#10

I’m not sure but have you tried removing the *page_break?

The game breaks the page when you select a choice anyway, so you don’t have to do that. Maybe try moving the page_break after *label q4?


#11

I removed the break from each choice and placed it after *label q4 but i still get the error message.


#12

I can select any #choice but afterwards i cannot click next.


#14

I tried running it and i think it may be some indent error.

I adapted your code using TABs instead of spaces and i got it running for me, try it:

The problem causing your error messages may be in a different section of code.

I copy-pasted the code sample you provided into a new startup.txt file, and everything worked correctly. You mentioned that the error message explicitly called out line 161. What does line 161 actually say?


#16

Hey the tab trick worked! Thank you everyone!
