It’s okay! Good luck with your story!

Yes, the only time you need to write ‘does it while’ is when a character is walking and doing an action/animation at the same time as they are walking. You should write:

&QQ spot 0.672 228 235 AND GG faces right AND QQ starts talk_airquotes

And do this for the rest of the characters!

Cool thank you guys :rofl:

What am i doing wrong here?

1 Like

choice (Eleni party)
“Outfit 1”{
@ELENI is dustoff_loop
@ELENI changes into outfit_1
goto clothing_choice
}
“Outfit 2”{
@ELENI is dustoff_loop
@ELENI changes into outfit_2
goto clothing_choice
}

if you want to remember this choice you put the following
if (Elini party is “Outfit 1”){
Scene here for Outfit 1
}else{
Scene here for Outfit 2
}

Hope this is what you were trying to do :see_no_evil:

How would you code walk exhausted offset or to a different zone?

1 Like

@CHAR walks to spot x y z in zone # in S AND CHAR does it while walk_exhausted

x y z would be the spot placement (use directing helper) or instead write walks to screen left/center/right in zone # etc
S is the number of seconds
Or simply @CHAR exits right AND CHAR is walk_exhausted ( to exit a scene)

How do you do a choice so you can click on it for around 20 times? And if I put an option so you could go back to the first choice if you didn’t like it, how would you make the choice bring you back?

Sorry for the late reply.
Before the choice that you want to be able to replay, label it something. Then, at the end of the choice, you could write another choice saying ‘do you want to try another option,’ and if said yes, write ‘goto label’ (the word label should be replaced with the label name).

Hope this helped, reply if more help needed :slight_smile:
