Beginner needs help with command please! URGENT

#1

Hi there! So i’m not sure whats going on, but what I want is my character to sit behind the desk and type in layer -1 while facing left, and iv’e typed in the command but when I preview the action he is just standing there?? (he sits in a spot) I don’t know what I’m doing wrong? I am not getting a script error so I couldn’t ave typed it in wrong :sleepy::joy: Please help!

#2

Could you show that part of the script? :thinking:

#3

I just deleted that part to try again :joy: How would you type the command in?

#4

What style are you using (ink, classic, limelight), name of the background and the animation?

#5

limelight and it is a custom background called INT.OFFICE1

#6

Hey, try this:

@CHAR spot 1.280 160 0 in zone 1 at layer -1 AND CHAR faces left AND CHAR is type_sit_neutral_loop

However, you can move the character around and change the S X Y (1.280 160 0) values for them and replace CHAR with the actual character’s name.

I hope it makes sense what I’m trying to say…:sweat_smile:

#7

it worked but now I have a new problem… I took a screen shot so you can see whats happening. I want my male character to exit right and enter right and walk to a spot near screen center and i want him stand in front of the desk but it isn’t working :sleepy:

#8

Wait, do you want him to exit right and then enter right? Sorry, I’m a bit confused by this…:sweat_smile:

#10

yes i want him to exit right and then come back into the scene from the right side :joy:

#11

from line 95 to 99

#12

@IAN exits right

@pause for a beat

@IAN enters from right to spot 1.280 181 41 in 3
@IAN moves to layer 4

#13

Thank you It worked but when he walks he is still behind the desk? How do I fix that?

#14

So you want him to walk in front of the desk and appear in front of it, right? Not behind it?
P.S What layer is the desk at?

#15

Yes :blush: The desk is at layer 2

#16

@IAN exits right

@pause for a beat

@remove IAN

@IAN spot 1.280 470 41 in zone 1 at layer 4
@IAN walks to spot 1.280 181 41 in 3
