Hey, Dara. First I just want to thank you for how much you’ve helped me. I literally always use your templates!
Anyway, I was wondering if you had a good, functioning background characters/extras template for me? I can find them on forums but every time I put them in my story I find out that none of the animations are valid, and I have to spend a while fixing them. I would appreciate it sooo much if you could do this, whenever you have time! Thanks so much!
Sorry I don’t make scene templates, but you can request them from any of these threads:
1- GiGi's Script Template Request Thread! **OPEN**
2- Script Template WORKSHOP
3- Hey guys! I will make you a script template! (OPEN!)
Ok so something is seriously wrong with my stairs overlay
It’s not moving with the whole thing and is stuck in zone 1 and just dragging the outline of the thing
Here is what I have
Remove line 191. You already added the overlay next to the background name so you don’t need to use the create command.
Ok it work but what layer should I have my characters at bc I don’t know about the layers that well??
The overlay should be at a lower layer than the characters: HOW TO: Move Characters / Overlays to the Layers
No, you can’t add the layer to a walking command. Instead, add the layer to JADE’s spot placement
@ JADE spot 0.609 290 467 in zone # at layer 4
Okay, thanks so much for the suggestion!
Hi, I’m having trouble with some spot directing.
I have two characters falling from a roof top to the ground. My screen doesn’t say there’s an error, but the characters don’t fall, it just shows them standing to the side of the screen then on the ground if that makes sense.

@MAYA is sleep_uncomfortable_awake AND NICK is idle_lay_exhausted
@pause for 4
I don’t know what I’m doing wrong!
Okay I know this is her thread to help but I already noticed the problem
You forgot the @ symbol
it should be
@NICK is idle_lay_exhausted
That part is on the same line as other commands, so it doesn’t need the @ sign.
Oh, I didn’t see that. Oops.
You need to use “does it while” when you want a character to walk to a spot while doing an animation.
Okay, got it. Thank you so much! I’m going to go try that out now.
I’m making a story and I’ve tried loads of things to try and fix it but my character just is “idle” whilst it walks to a spot instead of doing the thing that I’ve told it to do.
(This story is Limelight)
my character stops hugging after a second. I just followed your directions up here.
What am I doing wrong?
