@overlay OVERLAY moves to layer 6
@CHARACTER moves to layer 7
@CHARACTER2 moves to layer 8
@CHARACTER3 moves to layer 5
@CHARACTER$ moves to layer 3

That is how you type it out. :slight_smile:

Thanks lol

Or:

&overlay OVERLAY moves to layer 6
&CHARACTER moves to layer 7
&CHARACTER2 moves to layer 8
&CHARACTER3 moves to layer 5
&CHARACTER$ moves to layer 3

To make them do it all at the same time, tho it may not make a difference either way depending on what you are using it for. : P
