Code Skipping Action Lines

Why are you on the ground?

@pause for 5 then MIKE starts standup_neutral

@RAIN starts idle_armscrossed_angry_loop
@MIKE spot 1.280 226 63 in zone 3 at layer 3 AND MIKE faces left

Why are you here?

It skips over the animations so Mike looks like he teleported to a standing position. I tried to give enough pause for the action, reset the portal and tried on mobile too.

That didn’t change anything :smiling_face_with_tear:

Try replacing the ‘then’ with ‘and’. The ‘then’ is making the standing action happen after the pause and since there is another animation happening so close after it, the code is ignoring it and going straight to the dialogue

Try is instead of starts.

That pause seems to be too long, imo (and from readers’ pov), you can easily shorten it to the 2-3 sec, especially if you want to have mike’s action after the pause.

@pause for 3 then MIKE is standup_neutral
(or to make sure that it won’t glitch you can use instead:
@pause for 3 then MIKE is standup_neutral then pause for 0.1)

&RAIN is idle_armscrossed_angry_loop and MIKE spot 1.280 226 63 in zone 3 at layer 3 AND MIKE faces left

Oh that was really helpful, thank you for the explanation!

Thank you for the help! I made the pause especially long because someone here said the action may not have enough time to work, so I wanted to make sure that wasn’t the problem. But you’re right it only needs around 2s :smiling_face_with_tear:
