So, I downlaoded the Custom Macro “Speech Box System” https://github.com/ChapelR/custom-macros-for-sugarcube-2/blob/master/docs/speech-box-system.md
This Macro works using Java and CSS. I know how to edit CSS, but Java eludes me completely. The thing is, this macro lets me create a character and assing an image to show its avatar. I want to do that, but I need the avatar to change based on a Twine variable ($mood)
I know how to write the code in Twine, that is not the problem. But the .js is written in such a way, that the avatar section only works for images, so it does not allow a variable, even if the variable == an img.
Can someone tell me what is it that I have to change in the .js? Thanks!
I don’t think you need to change the source code. After reading the documentation you linked, why don’t you create different character macros for each mood, for example, Lisa_Sad, Lisa_Happy, Lisa_Surprised, ec, and then use the appropriate character mood in you own code.
The thing is, that would work if I wanted the dialogue to be different depending on the mood. But I don’t. I want the avatar to be a sort of “clue” for the player to understand the mood the character currently has. If I were to create a character for each mood, I would need to copy paste each dialogue line six times, one for each mood, inside a big if and ifelse macro, leaving me with huge passages and strigs even for the smallest interaction.
