My overlay keeps moving to the front!


#1

Okay as the title says my (damn) overlay keeps moving to the front once my character stops walking…
I set my character to layer 15, my overlay to layer 10 and another background character to layer 1 who is SUPPOSED to be behind the overlay. this is my script…
FRONT DESK is the overlay ROSALINA is supposed to be in front of the overlay and OL is the character behind the overlay.

From what I can see, you have her exiting. When she re-enters her layer position would change. Try adding the layer changes again.

@ROSALINA enters from right to screen right
@overlay 5265943542366208_FRONTDESK moves to layer 2
(add Rosalina’s layer position again here)
