There isn’t :pensive:
The only water-like sounds are of a toilet flushing, a thunderstorm, and a basement water dripping sound.

Um, I’m having an error with unexpected garbage. Here is the script so you can look it over. It is from a few lines above the error to the end.

Okay so there’s quite a few errors in there.

1.When you use a “goto” there shouldn’t be a space between go and to, it should be just 1 word. Also, it should just be “goto label_name”. You don’t need to add the word “label” in there. So if you’re label name is choosing_outfit_2, it should looke like this: goto choosing_outfit_2

2.For every starting bracket {, there needs to be a matching end bracket }
So you should add these brackets to your script (add the ones in bold)

label choosing_outfit_2
YOU (think_rubchin)
(What should I wear???)
choice “School Day Fun” {
@YOU spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU walks to spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU changes into YOU_SCHOOL_DAY_FUN
YOU
Do I want to wear this?
choice
“YES” {
gain YOU_SCHOOL_DAY_FUN
} “NO” {
go to label choosing_outfit 2
}
} “School Day Sporty” {
@YOU spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU walks to spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU changes into YOU_SCHOOL_DAY_SPORTY
YOU
Do I want to wear this?
choice
“YES” {
gain YOU_SCHOOL_DAY_SPORTY
} “NO” {
go to label choosing_outfit_2
}
} “School Day Fancy” {
@YOU spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU walks to spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU changes into SCHOOL_DAY_FANCY
YOU
Do I want to wear this?
choice
“YES” {
gain SCHOOL_DAY_FANCY
} “NO” {
go to label choosing_outfit_2
}
} “Making An Entrance” {
@YOU spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU walks to spot 1.280 171 83
@YOU changes into SCHOOL_DAY_ENTRANCE
YOU
Do I want to wear this?
choice
“YES” {
gain SCHOOL_DAY_ENTRANCE
} “NO” {
go to label choosing_outfit_2
}
}

3.The correct format for the if/elif/else method looks like this:

if (gain_name) {
} elif (gain_name) {
} else {
}

You don’t need to add in the word “gain” inside the parentheses. So if you’re gain name is YOU_SCHOOL_DAY_FUN is just needs to look like this: if (YOU_SCHOOL_DAY_FUN) {

Also, the last one else needs to be by itself, there shouldn’t be anything in parentheses next to it. You can learn more about the if/elif/else method HERE

O Dara, Great and Powerful Coding Queen,
:bouquet: :crown::bouquet:
:bowing_woman:t2::bowing_man:t2::bowing_woman:t2:

Do you know if there is a way to slow a sound down?
Or to speed sound up, for that matter…?

I’m thinking in this instance of wanting to make thunder last longer.
BUT the coding would be invaluable for being able to do something dramatic and interesting with a playback-adjusted “car_honk” or “clock_lp” or “door_creek”… the list goes on!

. . .
I know that if we code:

sound thunderclap

…then the audio clip happens once, at which point we need to code:

sound off

…before it will let us add another “sound”.

–Awesome. Cool.

If we code:

music thunderclap

…then the audio clip repeats and repeats until we code:

music off

–Also awesome. Muy bueno.

To use a less superior solution for expanding sounds (which WOULD would simulate something like rolling thunder…) we would have to code something like:

music thunderclap
volume music 0 5000

#some other lines of scrips etcc
#5 seconds has passed in play time

music off

…which would make the repeating audio’s volume decrease to nothing in 5 seconds.

HALP??
:rofl:
Is there a way to adjust playback lengths?
I have soo many ideas!!

Unfortunately you can’t slow/stretch or speed up sound.

I have one more question regarding this. I included the customization again. but what if they don’t click on all options agaain? Like in many stories when they offer customization again. What I usually do is I just skip this part cause my character is already the way I want them to be. So if they don’t click it then the twin won’t be like them??

You’re gonna have to tell your readers to click on all the options again

But if they don’t?

Then the twin most likely won’t look like the MC.

#541

Oh Okay. So is there anything else we can do to make sure they click on all options? Like I could just have them customize the twin but the was supposed to be a surprise. :sweat_smile:

#542

You can try changing all of MC’s features in the portal and click on save (just like what you accidentally did with the twin) and so doing this will completely change how everyone customized the MC and will make them want to click through all the options in the template to re-customize how they originally had her.

If not, you’ll just have to explain to your readers that they MUST click on all options.

Hello! I have an overlay and I use the shift command but instead it just pops up even though I put a time on it.

INT. SIMPLE LIVING ROOM - DAY with MIRROR to 73 230 0.298
@ALLY spot 0.996 143 156
@ALLY faces right
ALLY (callout_neutral)
Love you!
@overlay 6507150930083840_MIRROR shifts to 172 50 in 3
@overlay 6507150930083840_MIRROR scales to 0.298 0.298

Even though I put a time on it, it still just pops up without moving. Any advice?
