I’m pretty sure that’s the end of the animation “shush”.

Do you know if there is a way to do this? apologies if i’m not supposed to make a thread and link it here, i forgot about this thread for some reason until after i posted my post, and i’m not sure how to delete it.

There isn’t unfortunately. The only “interactive” aspects of Episode is tapping to continue or tapping a choice button.

Okay, thank you!

Hi! I have two questions, since I’m new. The first question is, when I’m making a new scene, for example, let’s say a party, and the main girl is Christina, Then second Christina enters the party, I want all characters to be there, and to pan from the first zone, to the last zone, then back to the first zone to show whose at the party. I’ve tried two ways but none of them work properly. When I was writing the story, once I changed the background to this Party place, I coded all the characters that are in the party and where they face one by one, then Christina enters, but the problem is that once I played it, It took for ever for Christina to enter since I had to wait for the characters one by one to appear, also for the panning, I tried this way, by it didn’t work out well again. So I pan to zone 2 for example, it had no characters, but out of nowhere, the characters in zone 2 start appearing suddenly one by one, then it pans to zone 3, and the same happens, there are no characters when it pans to zone 3, but then, they start appearing one by one, and this isn’t how I wanted it to happen So do you know how I can make all the characters in all zones appear at once with their animations and everything? Because I tried everything but nothing seems to work properly.

Now my second question: of for example, Christina was at the party with all the others, then she needed to go to the kitchen to get a drink, so I changed the background to the kitchen, with some other characters there (I still need to know how to make them all appear at once), then I want Christina to go back to the party, which is the previous scene, how can I do that? Because all I know is that I have to code everything I did for the party scene in order to let Christina return from the kitchen to the party itself. Is there a way to make our character to return to the previous scene without having to code the scene more than once? than you so much for taking your time to read this <3

if (Censor_no){

YOU (primp)
(Looks like I got her pissed…)

YOU (laugh_chuckle)
(Suck it, bitch!)

} elif (Censor_yes){

YOU (primp)
(Looks like I got her ticked…)

YOU (laugh_chuckle)
(Suck it, biatch!)

}

My if / else won’t work :sob:

You’ll have to place everyone in the scene at the beginning using the & sign not the @ sign

BACKGROUND NAME
& CHAR1 [spot] and CHAR1 faces [left/right] and CHAR1 is [animation]
& CHAR2 [spot] and CHAR2 faces [left/right] and CHAR2 is [animation]
& CHAR3 [spot] and CHAR3 faces [left/right] and CHAR3 is [animation]
& CHAR4 [spot] and CHAR4 faces [left/right] and CHAR4 is [animation]
@transition fade in

Ohhhh okay, thanks, but what’s the difference between the @ sign and the & sign in coding?

“elif (Censor_yes)” should just be “else”. More on that here: HOW TO: Remember Past Choices (if/elif/else)

Are Censor_no and Censor_yes gains that you used? If they are, what does your choice look like for those gains?

Also, if you’re testing both gains out, you need to reset story progress (if you’re using the app) or refresh the page (if you’re using the web previewer).

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH Okay!

And yep, they are gains!

I fixed it, but thank you so much! :heart:

Thank you again <3 this is really useful

I have one last question, if for example, Christina was at the party with all the others, then she needed to go to the kitchen to get a drink, so I changed the background to the kitchen, with some other characters there (I still need to know how to make them all appear at once), then I want Christina to go back to the party, which is the previous scene, how can I do that? Because all I know is that I have to code everything I did for the party scene in order to let Christina return from the kitchen to the party itself. Is there a way to make our character to return to the previous scene without having to code the scene more than once?

Another question: I want Sofia to move and change in size to spot 1.025 38 103 in zone 4, while the camera follows her, and while she’s walking, I need her to change in size to that position (she’s supposed to get smaller), but how can I do that? I also need her facing right

Thank you, I’ll try it

No you’d have to replace all the characters in the scene again.

Is there a way to make a text box empty? Like

NARRATOR
{can it be empty here}

choice
“Choices go here” {

}

?? i know it’s kinda confusing but i want the text box to be empty when i’m giving my options. If that’s not possible, i’ll just put “…”, but i think it’d look better empty.

Make the text white using a text effect

NARRATOR
| color:white | …
