How do I change what chapter the story game begins with?

I don't think you can.

I've been here for a little over a year, and I have fiddled with the advanced editor in numerous ways. I have yet to discover a way to change the first chapter.

Use
$DEST := @P500

Put it on the Link Script of your First Page Links to make it go to whatever page in whatever Chapter you want (page 500 in the above example).

I'm pretty sure he's talking about the first chapter, as in, you click 'Play___' and the first page of the first chapter shows up.

I think if you switch over to global script then it might work. Maybe.

Why would you even want to change what the first chapter of the story is?

Because I totally screwed up at the beginning of my story by putting a thing in the wrong place and the problem has compounded because of variables and stuff, so now changing where the game starts is the only way to fix it without deleting the whole and starting from the beginning :/

I know it sounds like you're explaining the situation, but literally all you've said here is that you messed up, which was already a given. I still have no idea WHY the problem is so bad that you need to ignore the entire first chapter.

Because otherwise you'd be going back to the beginning of the story every time you travel back to one of the areas, an area which isn't directly connected to the beginning of the story. Either way, berkazerka helped me fix it.
