#3

please screenshot or copy and paste your script


#4

NARRATOR
Maybe I should just show myself. I didn’t come here just to leave with nothing. You only live once, after all.

    MATEO (talk_arms_crossed)
If you want to hurt me I suggest you leave now. Trust me, it won't be pretty.
    MATEO (talk_neutral)
If you're here for what I think you are, you know what I'm capable of. Stay in place.

NARRATOR
I froze in place, my eyes as large as saucers, my breath shaking in my chest. This guy must have affiliations, but with what?
NARRATOR
It was the way he said it. He must have some people who are after him. It would explain the blood on his hands!
NARRATOR
Well there’s nothing I can do now. I was stupid enough to follow this psychopath home, so now I’ll be facing the consequences.

I backed away a bit, my hands pressed up against the wet dirt and brown leaves as he crouched down to open the window.
NARRATOR
I could see my phone light up from inside of my pocket and I winced, knowing it was probably my best friend. What if she calls the cops?

ROWAN (talk_angry_defensive)
I saw you at the party and you were staring off into the distance. You looked pretty shady.
ROWAN (talk_angry_accuse)
What’s even shadier is that blood on your hands. Care to explain?

&MATEO starts idle

I followed you because I noticed the blood on your hands and the weird way you were walking.
ROWAN (talk_neutral_arms_crossed)
And that is really stupid of me because you could be a killer.

I’ve never seen you before, and it’s hard to believe you’re new here.
&ROWAN starts idle_arms_crossed
MATEO (talk_awkward)
It’s complicated and I can’t say much. You don’t see me at school much because I usually skip.
MATEO (talk_forward)
I have to spend my time doing things that are way more important than school.
MATEO (talk_forward)
There’s way much more to this town than you would ever know.

Still comes up with an error


#8

Make sure everything is spelled correctly


#9

may i ask which line is the that brings up the error


#10

You can’t use the “@CHAR enters from” command for spot walking. That’s causing an error.


#11

yeh that sounds about it


#12

Are you talking about the @MATEO walks to spot 0.987 169 198 ?


#13

That’s actually a valid command.


#14

Somehow I fixed it, but now it’s showing up again on line 93:

Your errors are the way you’re adding the music/sounds.

This is how you should add music/sound:

sound sound_name
music music_name

Then to turn it off:

sound off
music off

I’m trippin, I was mixing it up with the follow command.
Distracted, apologies
