Yet another "Expected Statement" error

#1 Post by LiquidDarkness » Thu Mar 15, 2018 6:23 pm

No idea what might be wrong here, honestly. Sorry, if it's obvious, for me it isn't :(

Code: Select all

    menu rei_interact_menu:
        "What do you want?"
        "Talk":
            "I still need to come up with something here.":
                jump rei_interact_menu
            "I still need to come up with something here.":
                jump rei_interact_menu
In different part of the code the very same formula works smoothly.

Code: Select all

        "Give a gift":
            menu rei_gift:
                "I still need to come up with something here.":
                    jump rei_interact_menu
                "I still need to come up with something here.":
                    jump rei_interact_menu
                "I still need to come up with something here.":
                    jump rei_interact_menu

        "Ask out":
            if $rei_friendship <= 550:
                rei "I don't think so, sorry. Maybe if we knew each other better?"
                jump rei_interact_menu
            if rei_friendship >= 550:
                menu rei_date:
                    "City Centre":
                        if $rei_romance <= 50:
                            "I don't think she likes me enough..."
                            jump rei_date
                        if $rei_romance >= 50:
                            rei "Ok, let's go!"
                            call rei_cc_01
                    "Shrine":
                        if $rei_romance <= 200:
                            "I don't think she likes me enough..."
                            jump rei_date
                        if $rei_romance >= 200:
                            rei "Ok, let's go!"
                    "Park":
                        if $rei_romance <= 500:
                            "I don't think she likes me enough..."
                            jump rei_date
                        if $rei_romance >= 500:
                            rei "Ok, let's go!"
                    "My house":
                        if $rei_romance <= 800:
                            "I don't think she likes me enough..."
                            jump rei_date
                        if $rei_romance >= 800:
                            rei "Ok, let's go!"
        "Nevermind":
            jump rei_interact_menu

I'm not sure if you can put a menu inside a menu. Better jump or call a label where then that menu appears, that will probably solve the issue.
For future reference, please state the exact line for the error message. Better, post the entire traceback.

Also, you explicitly put a menu in the second example, but you don't in the first example.
A Close Shave:
*Last Thing Done (Aug 17): Finished coding emotions and camera for 4/10 main labels.
*Currently Doing: Coding of emotions and camera for the labels--On 5/10
*First Next thing to do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff
*Next Next thing to do: Set up film animation
*Other Thing to Do: Do SFX and Score (maybe think about eye blinks?)

Actually, you can. That's not the problem.


You can only have one line of text inside the menu.
If you want "Talk" to be the text inside the menu, you should do:

Code: Select all

    "What do you want?"
    menu rei_interact_menu:
        "Talk"
        "I still need to come up with something here.":
            jump rei_interact_menu
        "I still need to come up with something here.":
            jump rei_interact_menu
If you want "Talk" to open another menu, you should do:

Code: Select all

    menu rei_interact_menu:
        "What do you want?"
        "Talk":
            menu:
                "I still need to come up with something here.":
                    jump rei_interact_menu
                "I still need to come up with something here.":
                    jump rei_interact_menu
