@MOM enters from right to spot .552 80 339 in zone 2 and MOM enters from right and MOM faces left/right and MOM does it while walk_neutral_rear

Hello!
I’m writing a story that shows parts of a dream. I’m in doubt if I should use choices inside the dream. Normally people don’t have a choice when they dream, but on the other hand I am not sure if it’s okay to have such long pieces of reading (half chapters) without choices. Do you have any tips for me?
TIA :slight_smile:

What the @ for? Do you have to put it in, even if your Instagram doesn’t start with @?

If you don’t put the @, the Episode App won’t be able to find your profile. You have to put it in.

**Hey I need help with my script it says ** Choicws must follow dialog immedietly, not a branch

choice “Swimsuit 1” {

@YOU changes into you_swimmy

 JAMES (applaud_happy_loop)
 Sister James approved!

} “Swimsuit 2” {

@YOU changes into you_swimmy2

@JAMES starts sigh_disappointed

 JAMES (talk_excited_happy)
 This one is good too.

}

When I click it, it sends me back there

How do I make a character walk to a position

You need to have dialogue before you start a choice.

CHARACTER
Dialogue

choice
“Option here” {
}

@CHARACTER walks to [position]

So if you want you character to walk to screen center: @CHARACTER walks to screen center

How do you put characters in specific layers in limelight? I want two characters to kiss, but their layers are messed up. I also have them in specific spots.
It looks like this right now:

@TYLER spot 1.318 160 0
@LANI spot 1.241 241 30

@CHARACTER moves to layer #
or
@CHARACTER spot % x y in zone # at layer #

More about layers here: HOW TO: Move Characters / Overlays to the Layers

Thank u

Hey Dara. I made my character slide down a pole upside down and I’m having hard time getting them to stand right side up again

&YALESSIA spot -1.101 68 1354

@YALESSIA walks to spot -1.101 82 937 in 2 and YALESSIA does it while hug_rear

@YALESSIA spot 1.101 61 23

At the last line she keeps going upside, what do I do?

Remove the character before you make them right side up

@YALESSIA walks to spot -1.101 82 937 in 2 and YALESSIA does it while hug_rear
@remove YALESSIA
@YALESSIA spot 1.101 61 23

Thank you so much!!

Hey Dara so I have a script part where I need the character to exit forward, but every time I try they either exit right or left. Is there a proper command for this?

choice
“Open Message from Phoebe” {
NARRATOR (PHOEBE)
Are you alright? That was some intense scene back there though it was REALLY awesome ;).
gain PICKED_OPTION_1

} “Open Message from Lizzy” {
NARRATOR (LIZZIE)
D! Where you @? You okay?
gain PICKED_OPTION_2

}
}

if (PICKED_OPTION_1) {

    NARRATOR
Notification

choice “Message from Lizzy” {
NARRATOR (LIZZIE)
D! Where you @? You okay?

}
}

else (PICKED_OPTION_2) {
NARRATOR
Notificaion
choice
“Open Message from Phoebe” {
NARRATOR (PHOEBE)
Are you alright? That was some intense scene back there though it was REALLY awesome ;).
}
}
HELP i DONT KNOW WHAT’S WRONG it says that it maybe i didn’t put the word choice or capslock

YOU (talk_neutral)
(What should I wear?)
choice “flowery dress” {
@YOU changes into prettychapter1
gain Pretty_Dress
} “Denim jaket” {
@YOU changes into wednesday
gain Wednesday
} “Cherry red skirt” {
@YOU changes into Cherry red skirt
gain Cherry_Red_Skirt
}

if (Cherry_Red_Skirt) {
@YOU changes into Cherry red skirt
} if (Pretty_Dress) {
@YOU changes into prettychapter1
}
else {
@YOU changes into Wednesday
}
Could anyone tell me what’s wrong with the if/if/else section.

That 2nd “if” needs to be an “elif”

if (Cherry_Red_Skirt) {
@YOU changes into Cherry red skirt
} elif (Pretty_Dress) {
@YOU changes into prettychapter1
} else {
@YOU changes into Wednesday
}

Thank you!
