end of line and expected failure

#1 Post by BEOWULF97 » Thu Nov 29, 2018 6:47 pm

I've no idea what I'm doing. I've just started my first attempt at making any sort of game today, so forgive everything I'm about to explain wrong please. I'm trying to create choices for example here the MC has the option between two doors and each option (left or right) will lead to a different scene next. Between reading files and watching youtube videos to put the script together this is a problem I've encountered I can't find a solution to on my own. Two errors come up back and forth between telling me either a menu item is expected, then I edit, and it says end of line expected. Repeat back and forth. The error is like this currently at end of line expected.
The screenshots are attached.
I might be doing a lot wrong other than whatever this is telling me too. I'm sorry if the screenshots/my layout makes you cringe. I appreciate any help, thank you!

After menu: you need a new line - anywhere : is used means renpy expects a block, which means it expects a new line and four additional spaces. Also, please post the code in code tags in future, instead of an image. It makes helping you much easier.

Code: Select all

        "Which one should I choose?" 
            jump left
            jump right
Warning: May contain trace amounts of gratuitous plot.
