I think I'm in the right place for this question. If not, please let me know.
Okay, into the question: How can I set up an initial stat assignment? And I'm using Harlowe btw.
I just started using Twine 2 for my courses in Game Design. I love Twine and have so many great ideas that I want to keep working on this story I'm making even after the assignment for school is done. So, I've set up stats for the player to have that I want to have checks later on for and I can't seem to find anything by searching that will help me set this up properly. So far I have this:
This is the page where stats are explained to the player/reader and then they get to choose which stat they want their first (out of three) initial points put into. Once the player clicks one of these it'll go to this page:
However, when I test this Second Point page I get this:
I clicked Strength as the first point so what I wanted
to happen is it read:
Instead, it's apparently changing ALL
the stats to 2 instead of only the stat clicked in the first point assignment page.
Perhaps I'm missing something stupidly simple but like I said, I just started working with Twine 2 and I'm honestly proud of how far I've gotten so far. Am I maybe missing something like "if this is clicked then
add 1 to $str? Because in debug mode I'm seeing it running all of those (set:$stat to $stat+1) instead of only
the one being clicked.
