Making a Character Transparent (HELP!)

So I’m trying to make my Character look like she is transparent, and I’ve read from another place that you are suppose to put an overlay above the character that matches the background and make that Overlay’s opacity to like .5. I tried doing this but it doesn’t work out for me( The overlay stays stubbornly behind my Character!!)

Here’s my code:
BACKGROUND with OVERLAY at layer 2
@OVERLAY opacity .5 in 0
@YOU stands screen center AND YOU moves to layer 1

No matter what I do, YOU is always in front of the overlay!! Can someone please help? Thanks!!

I think it’s moves* not moved, and try moving the overlay to layer 3

Hmmm that didn’t work either…

hmm, well try this coding and see if it works

@overlay OVERLAYNAME create
@overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to 100 100 in zone #
@overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to 1.0 1.0 in 0
@overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity .5 in 0
@overlay OVERLAYNAME moves to layer 3

(make sure you can actually see your background on screen)

try that instead of
BACKGROUND with OVERLAY at layer 2

is your overlay in the right zone?

I tried this also and it didn’t work either…:grimacing:

I’m sure it is in the right zone because I can see it, it is just behind the charcter instead of in front…

Try using spots instead of using “screen center”
Also, the word “overlay” needs to be before the overlay’s name

BACKGROUND with OVERLAY at layer 2
@overlay OVERLAY opacity .5 in 0
@YOU spot 1.28 160 0 in zone 1 at layer 1

I think that actually worked!!! Thanks!!!
