Layering my characters

I keep trying to layer my character behind a desk but right when it enters it starts off behind the desk and when it continues to the other side its in front of the desk, I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but if someone can help please do!

@JADE spot 1.280 X 0 in zone 1 at layer -1

@JADE walks to spot 1.280 50 0

You can use spot direction instead with layers. This will help: Tip: Conversion between Main Positions to Spots

For where it says X, place your character offscreen to the right and whatever middle number you get, sub it into the X.

Can check out also: HOW TO: Place Characters Behind A Desk (for that specific background, you don’t even need the overlay)

You’re getting an error as it should be:

@JADE enters from right to screen left AND JADE moves to layer 0


@JADE enters from right to screen left
@JADE moves to layer 0

Check out this post on layers: HOW TO: Move Characters / Overlays to the Layers


Thank you I’ll go try it right now
