My characters aren't going behind an overlay!

Hi!! Before I start telling my problem, I would like to say happy new year!! I hope 2022 will bring us happiness & amazing opportunities for all of us. Let’s all forgive each other for our mistakes & go into 2022 with a brand new & fresh start! Now here’s my problem : I have a classroom scene & I put a few overlays, for example, I put a table overlay. When I try to put a student behind the overlay, nothing happens & im so confused. If you guys can tell me what’s up, maybe it’s a bug in my script?? I don’t know. Me and overlays aren’t the best of friends.

Script!

The script that I just showed you was basically just me placing all the characters & also placing the overlays. Also there are some characters that I put a sapce after @ because Episode thought I was tagging people. Looking forward to an answer! Bye & take care<3

try changing the layer of the overlay

did you move them to the right layr

if they are at wrong layer that would properly be your problem

@NAME moves to layer 1
@overlay TABLE moves to layer 2

the higher the number the more infront they will be.

if it’s in max layer make it layer 5 or 6 and the characters in layer 2 or 3 and so on

also aditinel advice this should not be before you have place characters on screen it should be after. because if not readers will see an empty class room before it. and characters will just put up on screen after.
which I asume you have notice if you have looked at your code at all.
