I’m trying to get them to shift from one area to another


You need to make them walk to wherever you want them to move to while doing an animation.

@CHARACTER walks to screen left and CHARACTER faces left/right and CHARACTER does it while animation

Hey Dara.

Sorry to ask again but I need a bit of help with a scene


music music_acousticballad

@EXTRA 1 spot 1.046 230 129 in zone 1 at layer 4 AND EXTRA 1 faces left AND EXTRA 15 spot 1.001 137 114 in zone 1 at layer 4 AND EXTRA 15 is idle_rear AND EXTRA 15 faces left

@EXTRA 15 is talk_rear AND EXTRA 1 starts talk_arms_crossed_loop

@KITTY stands screen center in zone 2 AND KITTY faces left AND KITTY is talk_gesture_rear

sound doorbell

@SILVER enters from left to upscreen left AND SILVER faces right AND BRONZE enters from left to screen left AND BRONZE faces right

@BRONZE spot 1.280 50 0 in zone 1 at layer 3

@SILVER spot 1.280 100 0 in zone 1 at layer 3

For some reason no matter what I do the character extra 15 always ends up in front of Bronze and Silver when its supposed to be behind them :frowning:

I’ve got no idea what to do here, please help

i just have spoilers so theres not a ton of garbage flooding up the thread


Ups I’ve found the mistake and don’t need help anymore


The characters aren’t placed in the car for their starting positions. (before you shift the overlay and move the characters)

Hit there I need help figuring out how to make my two characters that are close to each other start to slow dance in a smooth transition. Please and thank you! Oh and the story is in limelight.


OMG… thank you . it would have taken me long time to notice that misspell:kissing_heart:


Oh whatever I just made it correct, but thank you :smiley:


Hey Dara.

I need a bit help with something.

I’m having trouble getting to the new scenes after the multiple choice. Every time I’ve tried I always end up at the beginning of the label even when I’ve tried all the options.

I just can’t seem to figure out how to code it so the reader won’t return to the beginning of the choice after reading all the choices. Please help


The smoothest way it to get one of them to walk slightly closer to the other character and then just have them both do the slow dance animation.

Add a “Done reading all options” choice at the end.

I’m trying to add an overlay to the same scene but it won’t show the overlay.
Here’s the script:

@zoom reset
@EVELYN exits right
@cut to zone 1


sound door_slam



Hey, I was wondering if you had a ballroom template?

I’ve tried that before but it just keeps returning to the multiple choice


Are you putting a label inside of that choice? Because you’re not suppose to; it’s just suppose to be blank.

“Option 1” {
goto label
} “Option 2” {
goto label
} “Option 3” {
goto label
} “Done”{


I’m gonna try it
