I AM CONFUSION. (Overlays)


#1

Hey.
So in my story, there’s a scene where an orb kind of ‘explodes’ when two characters touch for the first time, and for the life of me I can’t figure out how to enlarge the overlay without it flying elsewhere.
I’ve created the overlay to be originally behind he characters hands and then it will become larger, but it just flies off.
I know I’ve done something wrong, but I don’t know what :joy:

Here’s the script:
@VALENTINA moves to layer 3
&VALENTINA spot 1.280 314 18
@VALENTINA is take_item_grateful

&overlay MAGIC1 create
&overlay MAGIC1 scales to 0.444 0.444
&overlay MAGIC1 opacity 1 in 0
&overlay MAGIC1 shifts to 122 235 in zone 2
&overlay MAGIC1 to layer 0
VALENTINA
Oh, thanks.
@overlay MAGIC1 scales to 2.907 2.907

You may have to add in a shift command when you change the scale as well.

It could also be because of the fact that there is jo pause between the commands, and they all perform at once.
Maybe try adding pauses, or using “@'s” in between the “&'s”

Wouldn’t it be AND instead of &

Woo, I’ve done it. Thankyou!
