HELP - 1st Story

coding

#1

Hi guys, I hope everyone is well.

My name is Catarina (Catte, for short) and I really could use some help.

I have been a reader in the episode for a year and now I really would like to try to post a story of mine.

I thought of a short story, I have everything planned, but I can not direct as I thought. Is very difficult.

At this moment my doubts are:

  • How do I put a character to turn his back on the reader?

"The story begins at a masked ball. I’ve already created the Outfit for the ball but I can not get the caracter into the scene with him dressed. always appears the default outfit, how can i solve this?

Thank you so much.

Kisses

@CHARACTER changes into outfit_name

  • to change a character’s outfit

#3

Reminder : your character stays in the outfit you changed them into unless you change them into another outfit

Also, for the character to have their back turned to the reader I believe it’s an animation I forgot its name


#4

thank you for your help. I will try right away :slight_smile:


#5

No problem, glad I could help! :grinning:


#6

Sorry to bother you again.

Can you tell me how can i make a caracter face other direction and do some animation at the same time?


#7

Like facing left or right, or with the back to the reader?


#8

Face left or right. I put (faces right) but it gives me error.


#9

It should go like this:

@CHARACTER faces right AND CHARACTER starts animation_name


#10

I believe you can just use animations like idle_rear to make a character turn his back on the reader.


#11

but in the dialogue doesnt work :frowning:


#12

Can you post a screenshot so we could see what you were trying to do? Or paste the code here


#13

Ya, show the code so we can know exactly how to answer you.

#15

Thank you so much for being so comprehensive


#16

The first one, you spelt ‘exits’ wrong

the second one needs to be ‘@KIM enters from left to screen right AND KIM is run_athletic_offset’

the third one needs to be ‘@KIM exits right AND KIM is run_athletic_offset’


#17

Thank u !

but in this situation:

@KIM enters from right to screen left AND KIM is run_athletic_offset

KIM 
What are you even doing to take you so long?

KAYA
I'm in the kitchen.

How can i put Kim looking right and Kaya talking without beeing in the scene?


#18

Your scene takes place in zone 1 so put Kaya in zone 3 (so she won’t be visible)

@KAYA stands screen right in zone 3
KAYA
I’m in the kitchen
