Set name doesn't show up in Stats


#1

I just started working on my story, but am having trouble with setting a name. Although my startup code seems to be ok, when the user chooses a name, it doesn’t show up in the Stats. My startup code looks like this:

*create sanity 100
*create intelligence 50
*create practical 50
*create strength 50
*create charisma 50
*create name “”

What name would you prefer?
*input_text name

Your name is ${name}, is that right?
*choice
  #Yes.
    *set name "$!{name}"

My stats code is as follows:
*temp name
*set name “unknown”
*stat_chart
text Name
text Strength
text Charisma
opposed_pair Intelligence
Practical
percent Sanity

Should be:

[quote] text name Name
text strength Strength
text charisma Charisma [/quote]

Thanks Elwynn.

I made the suggested changes, however, even after choosing a name, the name text on my Stats page still reads “Name: unknown”

Am I missing something else?

So the stats screen code currently makes a second variable called name as a *temp, which you don’t need, and sets it to “unknown”. But you already have *create name and *set name on your startup page. So your stats page just needs to look like this, I think:

Name: $!{name}
*stat_chart
    percent strength Strength
    percent charisma Charisma
    opposed_pair intelligence
        Intelligence
        Practical
    percent sanity Sanity

Also, there is no real stat called ‘Practical’, since it’s the second half of an opposed pair. Practical is actually just the inverse of intelligence; it doesn’t exist on its own. To raise Practical, you lower Intelligence. So you’ll want to delete *create practical 50 from your startup page.

Also, be sure the indentation is correct on the *stat_chart. I hope that helps!

That took care of the problem. Thanks!
