My hope is that these eventually become obsolete.

CYSCE (CYS Chrome Extension)

CYSFFE 0.4.7 (CYS Firefox Extension)

CYSFiddle (page script testing environment)

CYSugar (syntactic sugar for CYS Script)

But, uh, totally go ahead and use them in the meantime.

De Milite Inprudenti

Do you know what happens to knights who dare oppose me? They’re soundly beaten, torn to shreds, reduced to mere ashes, utterly and completely obliterated. No one can defeat the great and mighty (and—dare I say—quite handsome) Knarr'ator. I’m the best, most awesomest dragon there ever is, was, and will be. And yet here you stand, just a character in my story, challenging me like the fool you are. If you think you stand a chance against me, you’ve got another think coming.

But by all means, go ahead and try.

Slaying Song

It seems you’ve found yourself within
The troublesome affair
Of trekking through the timberland
To slay the dragon there.

They claim it a ferocious fiend;
However will you fare?

De Labyrintho Draconis

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, iudico mucius praesent eu vim. Cu has indoctum maiestatis referrentur. Vix eu omnes explicari, unum tacimates has et. Mei cu recteque hendrerit, an esse voluptua nam.

Te per impedit percipit consetetur, mel cu quaeque convenire. Liber utinam probatus cu eam. Id vulputate voluptatum sed. Mentitum adipisci postulant no mel. Esse omnis quaestio et eos.

Vides meam barbam, et amas eam!

Also make sure it’s under 100 kB (or 97 to be safe). If it’s over you might have to resize or compress further.

First things first, turn off the Rich Text Editor. It’s in your profile options. It might look simpler without it, but you actually get a lot more freedom this way.

You’ll be able to enter these characters with what’re known as HTML entities (e.g. ä for ä). Here is the list of the entities you would need:

Ä ä ← Ä ä
Ö ö ← Ö ö
Ü ü ← Ü ü
ß ← ß

Edit: This will not work in the story title field, though. Looks like you have already, but you will have to make do with ae, oe, ue, and ss there.

Is the sound working? on 5/31/2019 2:58:19 PM

Autoplay is always disabled on mobile, so that could be the issue for some people. It might also be a regional thing; YouTube can restrict videos from embedding or playing altogether based on criteria like that.

I have an error on 5/23/2019 12:46:19 PM

It's %ARROWS := %ARROWS – 1

It's using an en dash instead of a hyphen. It should be %ARROWS := %ARROWS - 1

First Dumb Question of the Day on 5/23/2019 11:45:18 AM

You can comment after finding your way to an end game link. If you’ve already played it you’ll have to go through it again. The comment page is after the rating page.

How would you create a crafting/scrapping system? on 5/22/2019 10:33:58 PM

Unfortunately, there are no loops in CYS Script. Every object would have to be made scrappable with some degree of manuality.

Using Percentages in Scripting on 5/21/2019 4:21:31 PM

You could do something like that with some division in the comparison.


Although now this has me thinking about how it would be neat (though niche) if you could access a variable's min, max, and start values through scripting.

Reveal Full "Last Post" Title on Hover on 5/18/2019 1:36:31 PM

Currently, the "Last Post" column cuts off the post title if it's over 20 characters long. Not a huge deal, especially on the subforum pages, but I propose that the link be given a title attribute with the whole title. That way, by hovering over it, users on the main forum hub can always view the full title of a subforum's latest post.

Any way to tell which score is the highest? on 5/6/2019 4:43:51 PM

Oh, no, I mean the maximum of the five current stat values. If the stats are currently 3, 1, 2, 5, and 4, then the max would be 5. Nothing to do with the potential maximum.

Any way to tell which score is the highest? on 5/6/2019 3:24:03 PM

Yeah, AND doesn't work with inequalities unfortunately. But you could calculate the maximum value and then check for which variable(s) equal(s) that maximum. It's possible some or all of them could be equal so you might need to tweak the stat order for tiebreaking.


IF %STRENGTH = %MAX THEN # Strength is highest
ELSE IF %SPEED = %MAX THEN # Speed is highest
ELSE IF %ACCURACY = %MAX THEN # Accuracy is highest
ELSE IF %INTELLIGENCE = %MAX THEN # Intelligence is highest
ELSE # Stealth is highest
