I have no idea what’s going on. For some reason, various *set commands just wont actually add the designated values set below.
For example, when I choose ANY of these options, NOTHING changes in the stat menu!
*choice #"...How cruel." You whisper angrily, trying hard not to lash out at everything around you. *set impulsive + 5 *set paragon + 5 *goto aquilaconvo3 #You gaze at your hands, taking in every single speck of blood stained onto your skin. A forlorn look forms in your eyes... before morphing one into a grim smile. *set psychopathic + 10 *set brutality + 5 *goto aquilaconvo3 #Clench your fists, trying hard to fight the burst of tears forming in the corners of your eyes. *set compassionate + 5 *set paragon + 5 *goto aquilaconvo3 #Say nothing, blankly staring at the carnage before you. *set intimidating + 5 *set apathetic + 5 *goto aquilaconvo3
Another weird example is this set of choices as well:
#...Like you should do something about it. Despite you being a simple village dweller, you feel like you should do [i]something[/i] to break this endless cycle of violence. If only you knew how to. *set compassionate + "5" *set charming + "5" You feel an odd sense of responsibility, as if you had some duty to upkeep. The violence… the death. The anger. It does things to people, cracks them open and swallows them whole, destroying their souls. They deserve better than that. You [i]all[/i] do. #...Angry. This shouldn't be the way people are forced to survive. To barely scrape by, only to be cutdown by another invading bandit faction. The thought sickens you. *set impulsive + "10" Your fists clench, white-hot anger surging through every core in your system. It takes a special kind of scum to commit such wanton acts of debauchery and violence. All for what? Money? Land? Power? The thought makes you [i]sick[/i]. #...Indifferent. It makes no difference to you. This is Lower Kusanagi, the black sheep of the world that everyone tries to forget even exists. Learning how to accept death is essential to surviving. *set psychopathic + "5" *set apathetic + "5" That's right. In this lawless, brutal place, death is everywhere. Accepting it is the only way you can move on.
The first choice works as intended, the Charming and Compassionate stat both raising as it should. However, the 2nd and 3rd choice don’t even change the stats in the stat menu.
I have no idea what’s going on, I’ve been at it for hours trying to figure this out. I feel like I’m missing a really dumb, minute detail that’s probably going to make me scream for not noticing sooner.
