Problem with if statements

#1 Post by lykoia » Thu May 07, 2020 10:35 am

Hello, newbie here.

I tried to add this thing to the game that if the player is in a certain club they will go to that club room:

Code: Select all

    if club == "drama":
        jump mondaydrama
    elif club == "art":
        jump mondayart
    elif club == "music":
        jump mondaymusic
The player chooses the club earlier in the game:

Code: Select all

"Drama club":
        $ club = "Drama" 
        jump fridayclass01
"Art club":
        $ club = "Art"
        jump fridayclass01
"Music club":
        $ club = "Music"
        hide club-board 
        jump fridayclass01
I'm not sure what I did wrong but the code just doesn't work and even when the player chose the music club they will go to the drama club room.
From what I know, the choosing clubs code works [when I make a character say [club] they say the name of the current club] but not the second one.
Is there some way I could fix this?

Thank you

Capitalization matters. "Drama" is not == "drama"
