Hi, how do you remove the overlay. I tried @overlay CUPCAKES clear and it didn’t work. The overlay has already been approved by Episode.

Hmm… I don’t know why that’s not working. For now just use @overlay CUPCAKES opacity 0 in 0 I guess?

What does your script look like?

Dara, now I’ve got a question for you!
Is there any chance to incorporate points and gains together as a result (if/else)?

if ( TEST > 100 and gain ) {

} else {

}

or

if ( TEST > 100 and gain ) {

} elif (TEST < 100 and gain2) {

}

or that would not work?

They are facing each other but it doesn’t look right. I don’t know how to get them to dance properly if that makes sense.

What about it doesn’t look right? Can you post a screenshot of it?

It won’t work unfortunately, the system will only recognize the points part and ignore the gain part. You’d have to use an if/elif/else inside of an if/elif/else

One of them needs to do the rear dancing animation.

A character needs to face the opposite direction when you have them do a rear animation. So if you want a character to face left while being rear, you need to make them face right

You should have the guy do the rear animation instead.

You can’t skip a whole line between an ending bracket and the next choice option. The next option needs to be on the same line as the end bracket or on the very next line:

} "Make up an excuse!" {

or

}
"Make up an excuse!" {
