*title error problems continuing chapter


#1

I finished writing my startup.txt and the nest.txt called fatherson, which only has “Test” in it. When I test the game with index, I can do the first startup page ok but when I hit next chapter i get this error “Startup line 1: Invalid title instruction, only allowed at the top of startup.txt” Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

You can only use *title once at the top of startup to set the title for your whole game, it’s not something you can change per scene or chapter.


#3

Yeah, I only have *title as the first line in startup, but I still get that error


#4

Could you post a snapshot of the top part of your startup.txt file? That may help narrow down things.

Couldn’t take a pic for some reason, but here’s the code:

*title The Knights Path
*author Ernesto Lauzardo

*scene_list
Startup
Fatherson

*create name “Unknown”
*create age 7
*create leadership 50
*create cruelty 50
*create strength 50
*create revenge 50
*create loyalty 50
*create faith 50
*create gold 0
*create honor 50
*create joinedorder false
*create gender “Unknown”
*create unknown 50
*create rank “Private”

FOUND IT!

Would you happen to have all the scenes in your scene list in startup.txt capitalized like you do here?


#7

Nope, lol didn’t notice that, I’ll change it to lower case and give it a try.


#8

Yup that fixed ir, I’ve spent all day trying to figure it out and can’t believe I skipped over something so simple lol Thank you for the help!

No problem, anytime.
