Dara Amarie's Official Help Thread! [closed]

hi dara i was wondering if you could possible give me a script template for having all the characters fade in and out of the screen as my stories intor i would really appreciate it

Is anyone else’s layering not working? I keep putting my characters at a higher layer but it’s not working. I want @TALLY to slap @NIKKIE but Tally’s slap is behind Nikkie… am I doing something wrong?

What is the difference between & and starts?

I don’t make scene templates, but all you need to do is place all the characters at the beginning of the scene using the & sign and have them before the transition command.

Line 1359 should be right after line 1363 or on the same line as 1364

how do you change a characters opacity?

hello Dara, I was wondering what would CHARACTER<1 mean in the if elif else method?

Hi Dara, I have a bit of a problem. When the reader chooses the dress Casually crowning, they should get a message that pops up saying ‘You decided to impress your mother’. Instead, this pops up
Screenshot%20(315)

Just wondering if you could help me find out how to make it display the right message.

Here’s the coding

@CHARMAGNE spot 1.280 147 8
CHARMAGNE (think_rubchin)
(What do I want to wear?)

choice (DRESS1)
“Casual crown” {
@CHARMAGNE changes into CasualCrown

@CHARMAGNE is primp_neutral

    CHARMAGNE (talk_excited_happy)
Nice!

    CHARMAGNE (talk_agree_happy)
Mom would approve.

} “Rebellious royal” {
@CHARMAGNE changes into Rebellingroyal

@CHARMAGNE is primp_neutral

    CHARMAGNE (talk_excited_happy)
Awesome!

    CHARMAGNE (talk_primp_neutral)
I'm totally rocking this crop top!

    CHARMAGNE (talk_think_neutral)
And Sydney would love that I took her advice.

} “Pretty princess” {
@CHARMAGNE changes into Perfectprincess
@CHARMAGNE is primp_neutral

    CHARMAGNE (talk_excited_happy)
Wow!
    CHARMAGNE (talk_armsraised_neutral)
The paparazzi would love to see me in this.

}

    CHARMAGNE
Do I want to wear this one?

choice
“It’s perfect!” {

if (DRESS1 is “Casual_Crown”) {

readerMessage You chose to impress your mother.
@CHARMAGNE is primp_neutral

} elif (DRESS1 is “Rebellious royal”) {

readerMessage You chose to impress your friends.
@CHARMAGNE is primp_neutral

} else {

readerMessage You chose to impress the paparazzi.
@CHARMAGNE is primp_neutral
}

} “No, I want to try on the others!” {
goto dressing_game_1
}

    CHARMAGNE (breathe_deep)
(Perfect)

    CHARMAGNE (think_rubchin)
(I should probably say goodbye to mom before I leave)

The option name in the if statement needs to match exactly like the option name in the choice.

hi dara would you be able to tell me how to change a characters opacity

It’s not possible to change a character’s opacity.

Hey Dara, I had a random question. Is there benefits to naming a choice?

You can reference that choice in dialogue.

Ok I’m having remember choices problem

So here is what I have first

IMG_20181108_111253052_BURST000_COVER_TOP

IMG_20181108_111216911

That’s what I have for other remember choices

IMG_20181108_111221756

And it ends up not showing but the other remember choices do show up except for one which is chose_Secert

So what am I doing wrong??
