    [ < ][ > ][ = ][ ≠ ]

    Because there is no "OR" function for conditions, if you need to have a not-equal you need to have two chapters (one with [ < ] and one with [ > ] ) if you need to show chapters where a value is not equal to a number.

    EXAMPLE USAGE:
    * I have two chapters with the same name
    * Chapter A leads to the good path when a value is equal to a number
    * Chapter A' leads to the bad path when the value is not-equal to the number

    I was able to solve it in my "Trapped in a Robotic House" story by just using [ < ] and letting chapters disappear as the reader progressed through the sequence. (see https://chyoa.com/chapter/Yes,-plea...be-pretty-to-make-men-want-to-fuck-me.1205112 for an example) It was fine, but the gameplay would have been more challenging if the chapters stayed and clicking on them would have a negative consequence.

    Thanks! Awesome site!!
