how do i get a chracter to run off stage doing an animation?
From: HOW TO: Enter and Exit Scenes (the two codes above show a character exiting the screen using an animation. It can be a walking animation or even a running animation, and you can even time it).
You can also use spot directing to have the character run offscreen:
@CHARACTER walks to spot % X Y in zone # in S and CHARACTER does it while animation
@JEM walks to spot 1.280 420 0 in zone 2 in 3 AND JEM does it while walk_neutral
#in this ex, she exits right
@JEM walks to spot 1.280 -100 0 in 4 AND JEM does it while walk_neutral
#in this ex, she exits left, and I left out the zone but you can add it if you like.
*adding the zone and/or seconds is optional. And it doesn’t have to be the animation walk_neutral, you can use any. Also, adding an animation is optional but it spices your story up. It’s also better to use spot directing rather than the normal entering and exiting and standing placements.

Good luck! and feel free to ask me anything if you have any more questions regarding donacode (episode coding)
