HELP with spot directing for children

Can some help me with coding for little kids. When they enter a scene and exit a scene, how to keep them the same size? I have been trying to figure this part out. Need a little coding help.

you have to drag them across the screen in the same size. if you write @childcharacter enters from right to up screen right, it’s going to make them adult size. you’d have to scale them and move them out of a zone and drag them to where you want. does that make sense?:sob:ik the way I explained it weird…

you would have to make your own, like here’s an example:
@AMARI walks to spot 0.802 156 109 in zone 1 in 2 AND AMARI is run_athletic_neutral_loop
&AMARI moves to layer 2
@AMELA changes into AMELA pj
@speechbubble is 118 152 to 86% with tail_top_right
AMARI (talk_neutral)
Papa! Papa! Come play tag with us!
@LITTLE ELIJAH walks to spot 1.147 231 44 in zone 1 in 2 AND LITTLE ELIJAH is run_athletic_neutral_loop
@LITTLE ELIJAH moves to layer 1
@speechbubble is 152 168 to 100% with tail_top_left

Give me a second, baby girl.
&DAVID is idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop
@speechbubble is 118 152 to 86% with tail_top_right
AMARI (talk_pointup_happy)
Ok, but don’t take too long.
@pause for a beat
&AMARI faces right
&AMARI moves to layer 1
@speechbubble is 118 152 to 86% with tail_top_right
AMARI (talk_pointup_pretentious)
Tag! You’re it!
&AMARI faces left
&AMARI walks to spot 0.802 -52 99 in zone 1 in 1 AND AMARI is run_athletic_neutral_loop
&AMARI moves to layer 4
@LITTLE ELIJAH walks to spot 1.147 -75 8 in zone 1 in 2 AND LITTLE ELIJAH is run_athletic_neutral_loop
@LITTLE ELIJAH moves to layer -4

no problem!! glad I could help!

okay need a little coding help
i need to get the kids to come from the right side instead of the left side
how would I code that part.
Here is the script

@LIA ELISA changes into lia school uniform 2
@LIA ELISA spot 0.863 -214 99 in zone 2 at layer 2
@LIA ELISA walks to spot 0.863 214 99 in zone 2 AND LIA ELISA is walk_neutral
@LIA ELISA faces left

@OSCAR changes into oscar school uniform
@OSCAR spot 0.854 -285 124 in zone 2 at layer 1
@OSCAR walks to spot 0.854 285 124 in zone 2 AND OSCAR is walk_neutral
@OSCAR faces left

Putting a negative sign in front of the x number will place them offscreen to the left. If you want them to come from the right you have to place them in the next zone over. So since you’re in zone 2, just place your characters in zone 3 then make them walk to zone 2

I did have them in zone 3 but when they walked to the spot they walked to zone 1 instead

omg I got it now thank you friend
