Hey @JemU776
How do you add handguns to multiple characters at once?
I tried @add Handgun to CHAR1 AND add Handgun to CHAR2
BUT, that didn’t work.

You’d need to write:
@add Handgun to CHAR1
@add Handgun to CHAR2

Unfortunately, the AND command doesn’t work and neither does having a & in front of add; it’ll give you errors if you type those in :rofl:

Don’t worry though, I placed two characters side by side and wrote this code into my script, so when I tested it out, the guns appeared for both of them at the same time : )

It should be fine, so long as you don’t put @pause for a beat in between.

Hey! I have a pretty detailed directing scene that I don’t quite know how to portray. If anyone could help me figure it out then that would be great!

So, I need a zoom-in scene where my MC’s notebook falls out of her backpack. I’ve seen things like this happen in some really well-done directed stories, & the rest of my story won’t really make sense if this scene doesn’t happen. I know this part will most-likely need personal art to be made (which I can figure out), but I’m still new at directing and wouldn’t know how to pull off the scene even if I already had the art, haha! Again, I really appreciate any help or advice given. Thank you! :slightly_smiling_face:

you cant’s use zone and layer in this command (you can’t use layers at all unless it’s AND CHARACTER move to layer #)
