Changed out overlay and now all the new ones are all over the place 😬

I had an overlay, which I wasn’t very happy with. I therefore decided to make a new one and replace the old one. I made sure they were the exact same size and used the same name as the previous one, but when I opened up my previewer my overlay which I have used multiple times through the chapter was all over the place…
What have I done wrong…?

as far s I know the numbers are actually the same for all YOUR overlays - it’s your “author” number or story number or something like that… so problem usually is only if one coppies script from other person then you need to delete the numbers.

as you see in my script LASAGNE_02 and FROG_VOMIT (dont mind the name) have the same number - its copied from the portal

No I don’t understand either, I didn’t change the script at all! :sweat_smile: :face_with_raised_eyebrow: Just the overlay, and it has the exact same size. :woozy_face:

can I see the script and can you point out which overlay is the one changed and which are on different place now?

Umm, I have used it around 17 times and they have all changed. :disappointed_relieved:

tht makes not much sence - can you show me the original script where all is fine and the one where it got messed up…without the script I cant help you,


The problem really is that it reads the spot code, but not the scaling so it seems… :sweat_smile:

so you have changed the overlay SHIELD which you use to create the other overlays?

Yes, to the same name.
This is the overlays:

I changed the one at the bottom to the one above.

do you have also the same size of empty space around the overlays?

Because if one is cut just around the shield and other has lot of transparent space around it the overlays are actualy not the same size even the shield itself might look as the same size - because script reads the rectangle as the “overlay size”

Yes, it should be the same. I laid the dark brown shield over the one at the bottom and the size was pretty good. :sweat_smile:

I dont mean the size of the shield itself.

I mean the tansparent space around it which is also part of the overlay

Yep :disappointed_relieved:
I really don’t understand what is going onnn

because to be honest my only explanation is for such behavior that the overlays warent matching in size…if this is not the reason than I have no clue what can cause this…

Hmm, perhaps it’s a new glitch…? :thinking:

it will probably do nothing but have you tried to refresh the page? Just to be sure the portal is not somehow confuzed by the change of overlay…
