So do I do it twice in the script like this?
@JAYLEE stands screen right AND faces right AND JAYLEE is text phone neutral
&CAITLIN stands screen left AND faces right
&CAITLIN stands screen left AND faces right
@JAYLEE stands screen right AND faces right AND JAYLEE is text phone neutral

No just once with Caitlyn before jaylee

For gains, go here: HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)

For the points system, go here: The Points System

Music continues to play from the last episode if you did not turn off the music at the end of that episode, and that is why you hear music playing during the screen to start the next episode.

I’m a bit late, but


I think the best thing to do is a

IF (skincolor = x) {} and for each one put a different overlay

The problem with doing this is that in order to remember the skin color, you can only use gains and not the (choicename is “Choice Option”) method. But with gains you’d have to add a yes/no choice inside each skin option and put a gain inside the yes choices which gets pretty messy and will annoy readers when choosing skin colors. But then again even that won’t work because what if a reader wants to go back (after choosing) and change their skin color, then they’d be gaining multiple gains. So that’s why you can’t use those selfie overlays if you have readers customize their characters.

Ah, thank you so much! Xx

Hi again, I’m needing help with overlays, :slight_smile:

So I’m wondering how to place overlays because the directing helper tells you how to shift it but not put it there from the start.

@overlay DESK SCIENCE shifts to -26 81
@overlay DESK SCIENCE scales to 0.658 0.658

How would I put the overlay there from the start, so it doesn’t move?

Xx

So do this.
BACKGROUND NAME with DESK SCIENCE to 0.658 -26 81

@overlay DESK SCIENCE shifts to -26 81
-26 81 is x y

@overlay DESK SCIENCE scales to 0.658 0.658
0.658 is the scale size

If you want to place the overlay by adding it to the background name, the code looks like this:
BACKGROUND NAME with OVERLAY to [scale] x y

so…

BACKGROUND NAME with DESK SCIENCE to 0.658 -26 81

Hey Dara! So remember when I asked you how to create a twin. Well for the twin, how do we test the story out to see if it worked? Cause she only appears deeper into my story and I’m still not at that part.

Can you teach us how to make choices that cost diamonds or if you can’t make diamond choices can you make that possible? And can you teach us how, once you make it possible?

Place her right next to the main twin while your testing that part out. When you’re done testing place her offscreen again

Diamond choices are only for Episode originals, featured stories, or authors who are on the payment program.

Thanks a lot! So one more thing, if the readers don’t click on all customization options then the twin would look a bit different right??

If the twin originally looks exactly like the MC before the customization, then they will still look the same even if readers don’t click on all options. So if a reader doesn’t choose a face shape, then the MC’s and twin’s face shape will stay the same.
