Startup line 42: invalid createe instruction

So I attempted to write/code something in ChoiceScript (just for fun, and to possibly to mercy kill my already full schedule)
anyways It hasnt gone great so far (the coding aspect, I can write fine-ish)
moving on x2 I keep getting the error "startup line 42: invalid create instruction, only allowed at the top of startup.txt

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks
(I’m going to sleep now, Ill check everything in the evening)

Move all of the *create commands to the top of startup. Actual game prose and other instructions like *set, *if etc must go only after that list.

Treat *create as a building foundation. Everything else goes on top of that.

Worked, even though now it’s saying that there’s an invalid expression and that a name was expected (I’m beginning to think I suck at coding)

What’s the full error message? Copy-paste it here.

Also, there’s a choicescript wiki that has a great tutorial introduction section to CS: https://choicescriptdev.fandom.com/wiki/ChoiceScript_Wiki Lots of useful info there.

I figured it out in the end, thanks anyways, literally just added ! ${} to what I was trying to do and it succeeded
