I've got an error but I don't know why


#1

I’ve got a problem,
when I type:
JOY (idle)

@pause for a beat <---- It give an error: I cannot use a director command starting with “@” here, But why can’t I use that? I just want that it pause for a second while JOY is standing idle.


#2

If you want Joy to stand idle, you can’t do it like that without making her speak.

Do this instead:

`&JOY starts idle`

@pause for a beat


#3

You can do @JOY is Idle …
or
&Joy is idle

make sure your always have IS before doing a behavior.


#4

You can do both is and starts :relaxed:

@CHAR is eyeroll_subtle

OR

@CHAR starts eyeroll_subtle


#5

omg thanks for letting me know! I didn’t even know that


#6

No problem, I found it on the old forums a while ago and saw that starts will allow for an animation to occur at the same time as another. Here is a screenshot I took of a post @Dara.Amarie wrote on these new forums.

Glad I could let you know! :grin:
