So I have this thing where you try to get as much money as possible, and at the bottom of every page I have "Money: $%%MONEY%%'. (I didn't select the show up on every page thing because I wanted the dollar sign; if anyone knows how to have a consistent prefix for the variable, that would also be appreciated.) Now, on this page, if you go somewhere else and come back, I made the page say something else with $PAGETEXT, however, at the very bottom, where I said 'Money: $%MONEY' and previewed it, it just literally said: "Money: $%MONEY". I've also tried %%MONEY%%, %MONEY%, %%MONEY, but it doesn't seem to work.
I would upload a picture, but for some reason it's really hard to do that on this site, so I guess that's that.
I'm not sure for the game you mean the link to the reading thing or the editing thing, but anyway.

(Choose the 'Get rich' option, ground floor, south, change mind, then you'll see the problem I was talking about. Also maybe some feedback would be helpful, but I'll understand if there isn't any.)
Concerning your previous comment, (as mentioned in my first comment), I have tried %%MONEY%%, among other things. I didn't make the variable always show itself, because then it would be: Money: 1, instead of the Money : $1 that I wanted (if there is a way to make it always have the dollar sign before the value, that would be nice to know).
I've also read the scripting articles, but I'm not quite sure what I'm doing "hilariously wrong." Thanks for you help so far, by the way.
Hmm, ok, I've tried putting %%MONEY%% outside the quotation marks, but that gave me an error. I'm not sure where the RTE special characters thing is, but I'll look in to it further. Maybe I've bitten off more than I could chew for my first storygame.
Well, thanks for your help and stuff. I really like how helpful people are on this site.
Do you mean turn it off for the entire storygame, or turn it off for the script?
Edit: Also, is it better to use the extension?
If you have $PAGETEXT := $PAGETEXT + "Money: " + %MONEY that should work.
Can't believe this took me almost a week to figure it out, thanks!
