Error: unexpected STRING

And there’s a new error here:

“Girlfriend”{
@MELANIE is idle_awkward
@pause for a beat
@BENEDICT is think
@MELANIE is deepbreath
@MELANIE is deepbreath
@MELANIE is deepbreath
MELANIE (talk_awkward)
Do you have… a girlfriend?
@MELANIE is idle_awkward
@MELANIE is idle_awkward
@zoom on 320 261 to 282% in 1
@BENEDICT is flirt_fingersnap
zoom on 556 270 to 282% in 2
zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 3
@BENEDICT is cough
goto questions
}

Error says:
There is a { on line 1014 that does not have a matching}

Can you screen shot or take a picture of where the error is? And yes the gold choice would look like this -
< PREMIUM>”Questions”{
answer here
}
without the space between < and PREMIUM

Of course, here is the screenshot:

Put a space between girlfriend and {.

Thak you, but it’s not working, besides everywhere else there are no space between NAME & {

Therefore, I cut out this part:

“Girlfriend”{
@MELANIE is idle_awkward
@pause for a beat
@BENEDICT is think
@MELANIE is deepbreath
@MELANIE is deepbreath
@MELANIE is deepbreath
MELANIE (talk_awkward)
Do you have… a girlfriend?
@MELANIE is idle_awkward

zoom on 556 270 to 282% in 2
@overlay BLUSH 1
zoom on 0 0 to 100% in 3
@BENEDICT is cough
goto questions
}

And copied there this part:

“Hobby”{
MELANIE (talk_think)
What are your hobbies?
@BENEDICT is think
BENEDICT (talk_sit_shrug)
Well, mostly bass guitar, skate, football… eh.
MELANIE (talk_think)
Interesting.

Then I renamed it to girlfriend, saved and it was ok, but when I replaced it with actions and dialogue from “Girlfriend” there was the same error

Try indenting your dialogue

Do you mean like that?:

line 1026 and 1028 you need @ before zoom
line 1027 you need to put the right command for an overlay

Also, delete spaces between @ commands and line number

Thank you, everything works perfectly

So i try to do reader message and it comes up as speech

Hey, sorry to bother. But how can I make two overlays work at one scene?
The first one is table with food, and the second id cops red light as a blush for both characters.
There’s only one problem, I need the blush to appear after some words, specifically in answer to a girlfriend question.
Here’s the script again:

“Girlfriend”{
@BENEDICT is think

No, I don’t have a girlfriend.

You can use as many overlays as you want in one scene just use these commands :slight_smile:
