I'm New, Can You Help?

You need to put the THEN command like I showed you or put this …
@FEMALEAVATAR enters from right to screen left in 1 AND FEMALEAVATAR does it while walk_exhausted
&pan to zone 1
@FEMALEAVATAR walks to screen left in zone 1 AND FEMALEAVATAR does it while walk_exhausted

The first is better, the second one will cause the character to pause and go ‘idle’ for a second before she carries on walking

I’m not sure what you’re trying to do but what I would do is to first place your character in another zone with the same spot (so the character is the right size when entering) and then have the characters walk to zone 1. If you want to show the ”process” of walking the use the pan command with an &. Example since I’m bad at explaining:

@CHAR spot x y z in zone 3 AND CHAR faces left
&pan to zone 1 in 5
@CHAR walks to spot x y z in zone 1 in 5

NOTE: make sure you use the same spot if you want your character to maintain the same size!

Hope this helps, and if this isn’t what you were asking for then I’m deeply sorry for wasting your time. Good luck, feel free to ask me if you have further questions! :revolving_hearts:

I know that part, but if the players name comes up again, what would be the code for that? Also, thank you.

#20

In the dialogue you mean?

#21

Yes, that’s what I mean :grin:

#22

what’s your character display name?

#23

The player can choose the name, but the the display name is (You)

#24

CHARACTER
Hello, [YOU]

in the brackets just put whatever you use for code a type-in choice

I’m sorry for asking something else, but you’re the only one who seems to have answered me today. Do you know how to add a dim overlay to a scene? I know the @overlay thing but not not the scaling and X, Y

#27

For this one you don’t need to add coordinates. Just put:

INT. BACKGROUND with EFFECT DIM 60

The scene I’m doing the player is cutting a light off and then on in another room. Is there any way to turn an overlay off and on at a certain time or command?

#29

so you want an overlay to show up mid scene?

You can switch the background with or without an overlay that’s the easiest way
