Coding (NARRATOR)

Hey everybody!
I wanted to ask if you can get the narrator (in person) to describe a scene while it’s going on?
since I get an error when I do &NARRATOR (EMILY)

Thank you :heart:

u need to take “&” off. I never tried that before, maybe because that is an error.

I’ve tried that, and only at the end of the narrator speaking do I get the characters…

Ah, so u want your character to be talking at the beginning with the narration box? Or just have the character talk with basic dialogue, while describing what’s going on in the scene?. I’m trying to understand how u want it to be.

I wanted the basic dialogue, in which my character speaks describing the action and what was going on …
And sorry for the inconvenience, I do not have much experience in the code yet … thanks for the help :blush:

Use the animations between the lines

Like this

@CHAD starts animation
NARRAOR (EMILY)
Text.
@DEREK starts animation
NARRATOR
Text.

this way the animation should start at the same time with the narration.

You could also do this…

&CHAD starts animation
NARRATOR
Text.

That way your character will do the animation WHILE the narrator talks. You can also add ‘then’ after the characters animation and add more so they continue doing actions while the narrator talks like this…

&CHAD is idle_happy_loop then CHAD is nod_loop then CHAD is idle_armscrossed_loop
NARRATOR
Text.
Text.

All 3 of Chads animations will play out while the narrator talks. Doing it this way makes it so you don’t have to put an animation after each narrator text😊
