Are you adding the zone number when you add the overlay to the scene?

If you’re asking how to go to a different zone, use @pan to zone #
If you’re asking how to get a moving background, you have to use a looping background.

No, I didn’t add the zone but only because the background I’m using only has one zone and the other overlay I have on the same background didn’t require me to mention it.

How are you adding the overlay?

How do I get an overlay top appear in the place I want it and not have it shift to places. I have a red car that I need to have just about peering into the shot. Can any body tell me a way to make that happen instead of the car being in mid air then it going to the place I want it!

You have to add “in 0” at the end of the shifts code, or just add the overlay to the background name:

Ok i have a problem and can’t seem to solve it.
In my first chapter, there is customatization of character at the start. when you choose a skin color or eye color or lipstick for your character, character of you mom also changes into it (so that family look alike).
Now the problem is, as soon as i preview second chapter i notice that all those changes and customizations are canceled…is this because i preview on the comeputer or do i have to actually do something to make those changes permanent?

please i need help ASAP

It’s because you’re using the web previewer. The web previewer doesn’t remember things from previous episodes. If you test your story in the app, your characters’ appearances will change and stay that way.

Ok i really hoped this is the case :smiley: thank you <3

Yep :slight_smile: the scene starts in color then fades into black and white but after it fades for some reason the color pops back on for a second then goes back to white and black. Does that make sense?

Put the filter command after the background name and add “in 0” at the end of it.

Hey Dara! I’m trying to lock some choices but when I preview the game, the choices have a padlock but they do work, if I hit that button it sends me to the label I’m trying to block. Any idea why?

Using <LOCKED> doesn’t actually lock your choices; it only adds a padlock image to the choice.

Hey, this is kinda complex so bear with me.
So, the mc in my story has a default name, but I want to give readers a choice to customize her name if they feel like it. Say, the default name is Remy- then there’s choice to keep the name as Remy or to change it. Since readers have a choice to type in the name, the display name for Remy is going to be [NAME]. But if readers choose to keep the name the same, how do I automatically make it so that the story fills in [NAME] as Remy?
Or should I just tell them to type in Remy in a type in choice and trust them on it?

Ohhhh so it’s only for show then? hahaha well thanks
