        Hi everyone,

        I would like to make my characters walk and the background move at the same time, like they're really going somewhere. How is that possible?

          Yes, I know that part, but what do you write to make it possible? I'm using INT. STAGE - DAY

          This is not a looping background.

        Katelynn keeps sitting above the chair instead of in it but Mark sits just fine. I tried switching their sides but it didn't make a difference. Do you know how to fix it? Here's what I did:



        INT. COZY RESTAURANT - DAY
        @transition fade in black in 1
        #beat ends
        #beat starts

        NARRATOR
        They almost didn't let us in but when we explained what happened they stepped aside and even offered a discount on whatever we wanted

        #beat ends
        #beat starts
        @KATELYNN enters from left to screen left THEN KATELYNN is sit
        @MARK enters from left to screen right THEN MARK is sit THEN MARK faces left
        #beat ends
        #beat starts

          I've seen this with other stories, it's a glitch I think. Maybe try to see if anyone else is having this problem under the Report A Bug section. You might also want to try spot directing her.

        How long does it take to write a relatively long episode with advanced directing, in your opinion?

          It really depends on your story, the choices, what you want to happen, if this or that happens, etc etc. It also depends on how fast of a writer you are.

        I have a couple of questions, and they're slightly complicated...

        1) I'm trying to provide a customisation page for my readers, but it's only showing up with a few options... Is there a way to obtain the full customisation preset, as used by most authors in episode, rather than the limited preset I've been given? The main character's name is MAIN.

        2) What is the points system, and how do I implement it into my stories? I want to use it to build relationships with other characters in my story. (It was mentioned in season 2 of beyond the stage and it seemed like a really efficient idea.) Can I do this? If so, how?

          Edit: I've managed to get the full preset, but I still need help with the points system <3

          I will be honest, I'm yet to use the point system, but, I know how to. The point system is complex branching that uses points to basically keep scores on characters. I would suggest looking at a guide on a website by the Episode Knitters because they can explain it better than I can.

          Here is the link to their website:

          (If your story is ink) You could use tinker_loop_rear for cooking, for drinking you could use drink along with a prop. As for your story, you will need to make a new story called either Demi Lovato (for purple theme) or Mean Girls (for pink theme). I hope that helped.
