        You're closing your first choice too early, that first ending bracket needs to go right before the next choice option "Punk look jacket", and the same thing applies for your other clothes options. Also, never put "goto" before "gain" otherwise you are skipping the gain and going straight to the "goto label" so you will not gain anything.

        Here is the fixed code:

        It didn't really tell me how to remember a choice from a previous/other episode. Could you tell me how?

        Both of those ways are how you remember choices, whether it’s in the same episode or a different episode.

      What's the donacode for that?

          @overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y in zone #

      • Hey Dara.

        I´m currently writing a scene where I need one of the overlays, which is a crown to move from one spot to another. Now I´ve read your guide to animation overlays and done what it says in the section with how to shift overlays but when i try to revive it nothing happens. The crown overlay doesn´t move like it´s supposed to and its really frustrating.

        Here is my script for the scene:

          You didn't put the word "overlay" in the shifting command:

          @overlay CROWN shifts to 0.209 458 291 in 3

      • How do you move a character up or down without them walking just using spot commands?

          I want them to move without walking. I know it can be done but I don't know the script for it.

          Make them walk to a spot while doing whatever animation you want them to do.

          @CHARACTER walks to spot % x y in # AND CHARACTER does it while animation

      • Dara, so I finished that overlay interview scene, but when the boss checked her outfit, she did two out of three of the impressions, and I was wearing the outfit needed for the second impression(the bad one) I have put my story link and the script so you can see the problem(ps th problem occurs for all of them aka the car scene, door scene, and interview, and should only be occured as one.) I don't know what happened!

        Although, lace is a formal material, so I guess it will work out.

          Nevermind, Dara! It was a glitch in the Writer's Portal Tester. Runs smoothly in the actual app. So sorry to bother you!

      • Hi, I hate to bother you, but I'm trying to place my limelight characters in position to slow dance, but they keep ending up in awkward positions.

          Use spot placement and layers. Also, the character doing the rear animation needs to be facing in the same direction as the other character. The rear character needs to be at a higher layer.

          &GIRL spot % x y in zone # at layer 1 AND GIRL faces right AND GIRL is dance_slow
          @BOY spot % x y in zone # at layer 2 AND BOY faces right AND BOY is dance_slow_rear

          Thank you! I really appreciate your help.

      • I got a question I have the overlay: CAR ANGLE SILVER in my story and I put it to the left offscreen like this:

        @overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -815 -9 in 0
        @overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER scales to 0.838 0.838 in 0

        and then later in the script I put this:

        &overlay CAR ANGLE SILVER shifts to -326 -9 in 3

        The problem, I can't seem to make my character the same speed as the car... she either goes to fast or to slow...

          Since you’re making your overlay shift in 3 seconds, you need to make your character walk in 3 seconds.

      • Hello!
        So I am using Episode Ink for my story and some of my characters aren't appearing. My MC is but when I change the layers they won't appear at all. Their texts do but I can't see them.
        This hasn't happened before can you help?

      • I am not sure if you have answered this question yet--and I'm sorry if you have-- but how does one animate their character to drink something? I believe I've seen the item of a coffee cup in other stories, but I do not know how to animate a character with one. It is a bit important for part of my story, and the scene would just not be as serious if it didn't have it.
        If there is not an item or animation for a coffee cup, how does one do it with the red solo cup?
        (This question is for Ink, by the way.)

          There is a list of props underneath the list of behaviors in your script. Use the cup props with the "drink" animation.

          To add and remove props:
          @add Prop Name to CHARACTER
          @remove Prop Name from CHARACTER

      • Hey Dara.

        I have asked this before and sorry to do it again, but I have really tried to shift my overlay CROWN from 0.173 58 258 in zone 3 at layer 4 to 0.173 144 294 in zone 2 but it always seem to mess it up.

        The scene is supposed to look like my character CONTEST ASSISTANT is carrying the crown before placing the crown on top of the head of another character but for some reason the crown always end up in zone 1 when its supposed to be in zone 2.
        I hope you can help me.

        Thanks beforehand.

          Use the shifting command with the zone number in it.

          @overlay OVERLAY shifts to 144 294 in (number of seconds) in zone 2

      • Hey so I am trying to get my characters to be placed just so on the screen. There are four girls in the back and two on screen left and screen center. When I run it through the characters in the back bleed into the front like smaller people on the character. I was wondering is there a certain code I need to type in to make sure that the characters stay within the background?

          You have to layer your characters. The higher the layer number, the more in front they will be. A character at layer 0 will be behind a character at layer 1

          @CHARACTER moves to layer #
          or
          @CHARACTER spot % x y in zone # at layer #

          The red solo cup is a prop and it's called "Red Cup"

          To add and remove the prop:
          @add Prop Name to CHARACTER
          @remove Prop Name from CHARACTER
