Can I even do that?

Of course! Just remove the character martin, spot the character Shadow in the same exact spot as martin, pause for a split second, then remove the Shadow character and replace Martin again.

@MARTIN spot 1.280 220 0 in zone 2 and MARTIN faces left
@pause for a beat

@remove MARTIN
&SHADOW spot 1.280 220 0 in zone 2 and SHADOW faces left
@pause for 0.3

@remove SHADOW
@MARTIN spot 1.280 220 0 in zone 2 and MARTIN faces left

@pause for 0.3 can be however long or short you want the time to be

Thank you. :heart::heart: Love you

Where do I put the label open_closet and end_closet?

How do I get one character to stand in front of an overlay, like a desk?Capture3

You’d have to use layers: HOW TO: Move Characters / Overlays to the Layers

Okay, thank you!

So, I’m not really understanding how to do the layers. This is what I have, and it’s not working.
Capture

@CHARACTER stands screen left and CHARACTER moves to layer -1

You also need to layer the overlay. If the overlay is attached to the background then you need to use the background name as the overlay name.

Using “enters from” places the character at a default layer, so it’s best to place your character in zone 2 first with the layer you want her in then have her walk to upscreen right

Thank you so much! I really appreciate all of your help.

Some animations in those templates have not been released fully so you cannot use them in your story. This is the full list of animations that are available to use for the Dirty Dancing contest:

The last one needs to be “else”

if (right_answer) {
}elif (no_clue) {
} else {
}

Also, you need to reset story progress when testing out gains. If you play through all the choices to test them out, you will gain all the gains and confuse the system.

(The story I’m using as an example is Wasted Roses)

So basically, there’s a background, and you have to tap to continue, instead of it automatically fading out to the next scene.

How do I do this in my story? (I don’t know if this has been already answered, sorry.)

You place the speechbubble offscreen or scale the size down to 0: @speechbubble is 0 0 to 0%

Don’t forget to @speechbubble reset afterwards.

Thanks so much! Also, how do I add my own “tap to continue”? Is it an overlay? Sorry for bothering again! :sweat_smile:

Yea you’d have to upload your own overlay
