Okay so um, I’ve been TRYING to come up with a coherent and basic, numberic kinda label system for flowing branching conversations! I have it like this, example:
*choice #"Hello." *goto intro1-1 #"Have we met before?" *goto intro1-2 *label intro1-1 She shakes your hand, gives you a smile. "Hi. Nice to meet you." *label intro2-2 She frowns at you a moment. Her eyes sweep you up and down. "I don't think so, no - sorry."
BUUUUUUT…going on from THERE, I’m not sure how to make it flow in a way that makes sense?!
Like, cause the more they branch I have to use different numbers, and I have to keep each branch with its own line of numbers, like I can’t have the first one continue on from 1-1 to 1-2 because 1-2 is the second branch! And so after both branches, down to the next label, I’ve TRIED doing like 1-1a and 1-2b, then 1-2a, then 1-3b, etc etc…
Just totally getting lost in the swamp of labels!!!
Does anybody please have any more coherent way of making dialogue branch labels? I’m not sure how to do this without it going everywhere!
Should I try like, having the first line of branches be 1-1, then 1-2, then 1-3, BUT having the SECOND line of branches be 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, etc? Or what?
