Progressing *if Statement


#1

Hello I am having some trouble with creating my if statements I am trying to make it so that the further you get into the story the more information shows up in your glossary.

So essentially what I am doing is after chapter 1 you gain some “streetwise” (you start of at 0)

My stats page looks like this:

*choice
 #Glossery
  *if streetwise < 10
   less than 10 streewise 
   *finish
  *elseif ((streetwise > 10) or (streetwise < 15))  
   This is to test streetwise between the numbers 10 to 15
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 15) or (streetwise < 25)) 
   This is to test streewise between numbers 15 and 25...
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 25) or (streetwise < 35)) 
   This is to test streewise between numbers 25 and 35...
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 35) or (streewise < 50))  
   This is to test streewise between numbers 35 and 50...
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 50) or (streewise < 70)) 
   This is to test streewise between numbers 50 and 70...
   *finish

The problem I am having is that after testing all the numbers I only get to the second elseif statement. What am I doing wrong?

*finish

You’re using OR instead of AND

What FairyGodfeather said.

Also, you should use this instead of what you have, because the player would have no choices at 10, 15, 25, 35 and 50 streetwise.

*choice
 #Glossary
  *if streetwise < 10
   less than 10 streewise 
   *finish
  *elseif ((streetwise > 9) and (streetwise < 15))  
   This is to test streetwise between the numbers 10 to 14
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 14) and (streetwise < 25)) 
   This is to test streewise between numbers 15 and 24...
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 24) and (streetwise < 35)) 
   This is to test streewise between numbers 25 and 34...
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 34) and (streewise < 50))  
   This is to test streewise between numbers 35 and 49...
   *finish 
  *elseif ((streetwise > 49) and (streewise < 71)) 
   This is to test streewise between numbers 50 and 70...
   *finish

Edit: @FairyGodfeather - Fixed.

The problem I see here is the fact that these conditions can overlap eachother (10 to 15 and 15 to 25, both have the number 15), but I’m sure LadyKuonji gets it :smile:

You can also use >= or <= instead. But either way works.

(Nothing to see here.) :stuck_out_tongue:

@ballmot and @FairyGodfeather

Thank you so much for your help! After I changed the coding around (to fit what was shown) I was able to get it to work.

Again thank you so much!
