Hey I looked at some of your forums and it helped but im stuck somewhere. I gave the players the option to create their own name, but when I try to write dialogue for that character im not quite sure on how to go about with that…



#4499

I did read this, but it’s like a diff language to me, I just don’t understand it sorry :frowning:
Please can you just help me with that one sentence?! :slight_smile:
I will of course give you a mention at the end of the chapter


#4500

You have to plug in the numbers with your own numbers

@CHARACTER walks to spot S X Y in zone # in T

  • change “CHARACTER” to ABBIE
  • change S to the scale size you want which is “0.57”
  • change X Y to the spot coordinates. You have to figure this out because I don’t know where you want your character to walk to.
  • change # to the zone number which is “3” for you
  • change T to the amount of seconds you want your character to walk which is “10”

ABBIE walks to spot 0.57 X Y in zone 3 in 10


#4501

You would just continue to use the character’s script name for dialogue. If you want someone to say the name when they talk, just wrap straight brackets around NAME, like this: [NAME]

MAIN CHARACTER
My name is [NAME].

#4502

I’m just not sure how to stop this from saying Main CHaracter instead of their name?21%20PM

This is what I’ve got so far, I’ve tried doing specific but it’s just not happening :frowning: :’(
I wish my brain would compute how to do this :confused: I have read how to do it, but I just can’t get it to happen for me, so gone back to this as at least it doesn’t come up with an error anymore

But thank you for your time and trying to help me, it was much appreciated :slight_smile:


#4505

hi dara would you be able to help me find the female ink version if dodge_rear i can’t find it


#4506

dodge_rear is only available for male characters. There isn’t a female version of it.


#4507

ok thanks


#4508

Thank you so much! :blush:


#4509

Say you want to have a character share a 5-line limerick. Is it possible to code in soft line returns so that each phrase of the limerick appears on a single line with all 5 phrases visible at the same time?


#4510

hi, so why when I do
@CHARACTER walks to spot xxxxxx AND CHARACTER is walk_casual THEN CHARACTER is idle_happy
Why does it takes times to start the idle_happy animation.
Like when the character goes to that spot there is a pause then he do the animation…
How can I fix it ?


#4511

Hey there,

I am having a problem with the layering and motion with my story.

PART 1 : MOTION
I want the character to move in swim_rear motion from zone 1 to zone 2. The current coding in the script is like this :

&SIYA THAKUR spot 0.930 172 317 in zone 1 THEN SIYA THAKUR faces left AND SIYA THAKUR starts swim_rear

Here SIYA THAKUR is the character that I want to be in moving motion while she swims from Zone 1 to zone 2 in the scene. But somehow, the motion is in static loop that is it is in motion but in a fixed place.

PART 2 : LAYERING
I want the Character CHETAN DIXIT move to a layer behind SIYA THAKUR but somehow it is not working.

Could anybody please help me with proper scripting for the above problems. I would be happy.

P.S. : I AM USING EPISODE INK FOR ALL MY CHARACTERS
