Hi everyone. My name is Alicia, 20yo and i’am Italian and Belgian so my first linguage are italian and french…
I’am writing a new story with my best friend (Google Traductor :joy:) but i have some problem with my blush overlay… he doesnt fade…

@ANNA is idle_awkward_scratch_loop
&zoom on 400 215 to 167% in 0
@overlay BLUSH create
@overlay BLUSH opacity 0.5 in 2
@overlay 4889909291253760_BLUSH shifts to 72 311 in zone 2
@overlay 4889909291253760_BLUSH scales to 0.404 0.404

Thank you. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::kissing_heart:

You have to position yourself in zone two first or it just doesn’t work right I hope this will help you out

I think it’s the opacity that’s the problem. Try something like:

@overlay BLUSH opacity 0

@pause for 0.0000000001

@overlay BLUSH opacity 0.5 in 2

And the rest down here… let me know if this worked :wink:

I’ve just tried now, my overlay is on the screen but i can’t see neither with my phone nor with my computer…

(thanks for your reply) :relaxed:

It’s alright :joy: So the overlay is on the screen but you can’t see it? Is that what you’re saying? Could you send me the script after
@overlay 4889909291253760_BLUSH scales to 0.404 0.404

yes!! :sweat_smile:

@overlay 4889909291253760_BLUSH shifts to -320 0

So it moves again? I don’t know if this is the problem but maybe add another 0.00000001? It’s just Episode can sometimes do funny things if something immediately follows something :joy:

Another solution could be putting the shift and scale (the first one) before the opacity… I usually do this so I don’t know if this makes a difference but it would make more sense if it was as the opacity is starting before it is even positioned on the screen.

Nothing… i’m not so lucky haha :persevere:
But thank you for your time with me. :relaxed::relaxed:

I’m sorry :cry:
I’m probably missing something really obvious but the best thing to do is to just play around with it and hope for the best

You need to put the shift and scale commands before the opacity commands
&overlay BLUSH create
&overlay BLUSH shifts to 72 311 in 0
&overlay BLUSH scales to 0.404 0.404 in 0
@overlay BLUSH opacity 0.5 in 2
