I need help with solving an overlay issue

#1

I’ve added two overlays to a scene, but when I go to overlay helper on my phone neither show up.
Here’s my script:

@ AGNES starts talk_gesture_rear
@pause for a beat
@overlay STEAK_AND_P_1 create
@ AGNES starts talk_gesture_rear AND AGNES faces right
@pause for a beat
@overlay STEAK_AND_P_2 create

It doesn’t show a script error when I save and I’m doing what other people have said to do but it still wont work.

Anyone know how to help me?

you need to add opacity commands as well

@overlay OVERLAY opacity 1 in 0

I’ll try that but where do I put the “create” part of the script?

whenever you want the overlay to show up, after create just put the opacity command

Like this?
@overlay OVERLAY create opacity 1 in 0
When I do it like that ^^^
it says " ‘create’ should be specified separately"

I have the same issue you had I think but I tried what @Apes said and it’s still not working…
Here’s my code does anyone see something I missed? Basically, in this scene I was using an overlay I made so it looks like the character (Ethan) was opening then closing the locker and it works the first time I open it but it won’t show up when I want to put the overlay to close it again.

@overlay BLUE LOCKER DOORS create
@overlay BLUE LOCKER DOORS opacity 1

@overlay BLUE LOCKER DOORS moves to layer -10

@overlay 6225746096029696_BLUE LOCKER DOORS shifts to -542 0
@overlay 6225746096029696_BLUE LOCKER DOORS scales to 1.000 1.000

@overlay 6225746096029696_BLUE LOCKER DOORS shifts to -640 -0
@overlay 6225746096029696_BLUE LOCKER DOORS scales to 1.000 1.000

@overlay BLUE LOCKER DOORS create
@overlay BLUE LOCKER DOORS opacity 1 in 0

@overlay 6225746096029696_BLUE LOCKER DOORS shifts to -542 0
@overlay 6225746096029696_BLUE LOCKER DOORS scales to 1.000 1.000

-there’s characters doing things in the middle but I decided not to show all of the character coding and thought it would be simpler to just show the overlay code as the episode progresses-

Be sure to specify which zone for the overlays to be in like I’ve written in bold above :slight_smile:
