If it’s not in the art catalog, then it’s a hidden background and hidden background will create errors in your script.

#2661

You need to add the zone number when you shift an overlay.
You inverted the scale size of the duplicate to make them upside down, so now they are in a completely different spot then where you had them so you have to zoom out to find your character then place them where you want to be.


#2662

They’re called tappable overlays. They are currently in beta testing right now.

Hello, maybe this is a stupid question but when I want to make a character that will have a custom name, should I name the character NAME when I am creating her? Thank you in advance.


#2664

You can name the character whatever you want. “NAME” just has to be the character’s display name (if you put NAME in the parentheses in the name input code). Read through this and you’ll understand what I mean: A Guide to Typed-in Choices


#2665

Thank you very much for your quick reply <3


#2666

I still doesn’t work, there’s something wrong with the {}


#2667

What is the error message you are getting and what does your script look like now


#2669

My speechbubble won’t show up! It appears in the previous scene and then just doesn’t show up at all in the next, but I still have to tap and the character does the animation. It doesn’t even show up in the app either. I tried just using speechbubble reset and it still won’t show up! Here’s my script:

UGH

The highlighted dialogue is what won’t show up.


#2670

Is it a script problem or a glitch? I’m just pretty upset because it’s important to the plot of my story.


#2671

The error message I’m getting is "There is a { on line 279 that does not have a matching }"
And my script looks like this:
YOU (think_rubchin)
(What do I think Zoe should do?)
choice
“Forget, it won’t work out” {
YOU (sigh_disappointed)
You should just leave him alone,
It won’t work out.

Oh, I didn’t know you felt like that.

[NAME]! You should know by now!
That’s the last thing you should do!
ALEXA (talk_excited_happy)
I know what to do!
Why don’t you do something at the party?!
}
“Do something at the party” {
YOU (talk_excited_happy)
I know,
You should do something at the party and maybe get to know him.
ZOE (talk_excited_happy)
Yes! That’s a great idea!

So are you sure you have an outfit?
ZOE (think_rubchin)
I think so.

Ok then.

Hi what animation is this? Thank you


#2676

The end of the shush animation


#2677

I have a question! When you are writing and editing your episode chapter and you have officially complete, is there a code or writing i have to use to indicate that the chapter is done? Because I finished a chapter and i ended it using a transition to fade out but it makes it seems its repeating over and over again and I’m scared if I published it, it’ll gonna be like that for the readers… so please help bring clarity in my head! :):grinning:


#2678

I hope this kind of answers your question… Usually what I do is @transition fade out black and then cut to the INT. BLACK - DAY background and have it pause for a second while turning off music, or have a little narration box, or anything else.


#2679

Okay so, you know how the end of the “shush” animation looks really funny? Well sone people manage to have the animation skip directly to the end of it where a character makes that face, do you know how that works? [ink{
