LegendaryLoris, The Reader
all of my storygames are exclusively about dad's amazing adventures
This is for my dad's birthday! You don't have to play this if you don't wanna! Thanks!
(I keep finding bugs, so this will be on and off published as I edit things :) )
I decided it would be fun to make my dad another storygame for father's day...5 years after the first one I made for him. Love you dad, happy father's day!
EDIT (4 years later): The sheer amount of family lore concerning this game is immense. It was a game that I started to make about 4 years ago for father's day, wrote about 1 "Dad Trial" of, and then promptly dropped. Every father's day and birthday since, the fact that my father has never seen the game and the fact that I never bothered to finish it has been a running joke in the family. Because he means so much to be and because I think it's really funny, I decided to finally finish the game for him for his 50th birthday. It's a thematic mess, with too much meta humor and distinctly different writing styles depending on what age I was when I wrote each section, and I hope you thoroughly enjoy it, dad.

Never mind, I figured it out! In case someone else runs into the same problem, I found that I had a variable that was contradicting the switching of the chapter. I had the conditions be that "if IRRITATION (my variable) is above 3, go to [certain page]." However, since I already had come up with a way to make the player go to that page without IRRITATION being above 3, I guess the variable just...didn't get to do its thing until I clicked on the next link, which happened to be switching to the next chapter. As a result, instead of going to the next chapter, my storygame kept switching to the [certain page] I had told the storygame to do if IRRITATION was above 3. Removing that condition fixed the problem, and allowed my storygame to freely move to the next chapter.
Basically, if you run into this same problem, check your variables and make sure none of them are counteracting your directions for the storygame to go to your next chapter. :) Sorry for the confusion, all caused by me!
Switching chapters isn't working? on 6/20/2020 7:14:31 PM
I've seen this issue pop up on here before, but I wasn't quite sure how it was resolved. I'm working on a storygame for my dad for father's day tomorrow, and I'm trying to make multiple chapters to help organize it. From what I've seen, the correct way of switching chapters is to set the link destination to the chapter you want to switch to, and make sure the page you want to be the first page is selected as the "first page" in the chapter's settings, but it isn't working. Every time I click on the link that's supposed to have the destination set to the next chapter, the storygame just goes to the previous page. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I'm just about to quit on the idea of chapters altogether at this point. Thanks!

All of these are great tips! I don't really agree with #2, since I'm doing a very loose and funny game called Myrtle the Turtle right now and it's going great for me, but it could be different for someone else. Other than that, though, these tips will really help me! Thanks!
