So, if I change their look in character settings, will the rest of the script I wrote before have that character with a different look?

Yes it will affect your whole story and will change the look of the character everywhere in your story.

Is there a way to make it so it only affects it from then on?

You’d have to change it using codes in the script.

Do you know any of said codes?

@CHARACTER changes bodyColor into Color
@CHARACTER changes eyebrows into Eyebrow
@CHARACTER changes faces into Face
@CHARACTER changes eyes into Eyes
@CHARACTER changes eyesColor into Color
@CHARACTER changes mouth into Mouth
@CHARACTER changes mouthColor into Color
@CHARACTER changes hair into Hair
@CHARACTER changes hairColor into Color
@CHARACTER changes nose into Nose

Oh, thank you so much!

&pan to zone 1 in 3
&KYLA walks to spot 0.713 -49 209 in 3
&XANDER walks to spot 0.803 62 171 in zone 1 in 3

Totally forgot to add the zone :expressionless: he’s going to the correct location but he slides across the screen to it, he doesn’t walk. They’re supposed to walk together but she stops before he does. Any ideas?

Change the & sign to the @ sign for Xander’s walking command

Could you please help me? How can I reflect an overlay so it faces right instead of left using rotations?

The easiest way would be to edit the image and flip it so that it’s mirrored. Then upload it as a new overlay.

But in code way, you need to add a negative to the 2nd scale number, then rotate it 180 degrees

@overlay OVERLAY scales to 1.0 -1.0
@overlay OVERLAY rotates 180 anchor point 0 0

Once you do this, you will not be able to resize it. Otherwise it will glitch and exit the app.

Thank you!

Hi Dara, hope you’re doing well.

My problem is with my script, I don’t have any errors but I made a whole other character to replace a character that I had used in my script and I don’t want to replace every single name because it will take forever. So, I was wondering if you knew how to select a certain word through out the script and then change them all at the same time.

e.g. the character’s name is Milo but I want to replace it with the new character is Leto throughout the script, and I know it’s possible because I have done it before. There will be a box outline around the word or name I highlight throughout the script. Thank you.

Highlight the name in your script. Then press CTRL + F on your keyboard (CMMD + F if you have a Mac) then a box will pop up on your screen. Click on the word ALL first. Then type in the new character name.

Hey everyone. I need some help with the last scene I’ve come to. I need to figure out exactly how to place the characters in the classroom.

Hi, im writing my first story, but when i added choices about my character, if she wanted to wear shorts, pants, or skirts. I’m pretty sure i didnt really do anything wrong since the first choice was the shorts, then i copied and pasted it twice, then i renamed the choices and the actual clothes within the coding. Once i clicked save, i suddenly got this warning but only for the Pants choice, the shorts and skirt were okay, but this is what i got:

Expected CHARACTER and SCENE Change. Found "“Pants {” instead. Did you forget to CAPITALIZE the name, or close the ( ) around the animation?

                                      **This is my "choice" coding down below**

label choosing_outfits

CHRISTINA (think)
(What should i wear?)

choice
“Shorts” {
@CHRISTINA is dustoff_loop
@CHRISTINA changes into CHRISTINA_default
}

“Pants” {
@CHRISTINA is dustoff_loop
@CHRISTINA changes into CHRISTINA_casual
}

“Skirt” {
@CHRISTINA is dustoff_loop
@CHRISTINA changes into CHRISTINA_Gothic
}

@pause for a beat

CHRISTINA
(Should I wear this?)

choice
“Fuck yeah, You slay” {

@CHRISTINA is flirt_wink
CHRISTINA
I look hot

}
“Oh Hell Nah” {

@CHRISTINA is talk_repulsed
CHRISTINA
Fine Chill
goto choosing_outfits

}

*now again, i dont know why i for the warning only for the Pants choice, and Thank you.

Actually never mind, i did it. I have to remove the space in between every choice, i accidentally left a space. But thanks anyways

Does anyone know how to get this animation face? I can’t find it!
