    I did this before.  Without a script, it requires variables.  It was easy enough to do, just confusing to keep track of.  I'll post the RAR with the project I was working on.  It had these features all done with events at the very beginning of the game:

    - Gender Choice

    - Sexual Orientation (Homo/Hetero/Bi)

    - Hair Color

    - Name Input

    Based on the choices you made with gender and sexual orientation, the NPC's in various areas and your Lord/Lady would be changed appropriately.  I still plan on making this into a very short game, but I'll post it for anyone to follow what was done.  The eventing is commented as well!

    You click on the box that's next to it to select a face graphic.

    Well, during your gender selection, turn on a switch for if male, and a switch for if female. That's two switches. Now that you have these two switches, you can make different dialogue depending on the player's gender. You use a conditional branch with this, that checks if that switch is on, then show the appropriate text with the correct face.


    If you don't know what conditional branches are, you still have a lot left to learn. So please visit our tutorial forum and try out some beginner tutorials, specifically about switches.

    Paulkadots don't double, or even triple post. Edit your previous post if you've got something else to add.


    I'm not going to write you a personal tutorial on how to use conditional branches. The link I sent you should introduce you to them, you should actually take the time to follow it step by step.
