Need help with walking command

  I will explain how I would like to do it. I want Jericho to walk through the zones until he reaches George, but when he walks the camera doesn't move, I also put the @pan to zone 1 but it didn't move. I'm also trying to get george to move to the side of jericho but with the commands he doesn't move...Here I have the script to tell me where I failed :( 

another doubt. Could someone explain me what is the & in the characters for?

JERICHO (talk_explain_neutral)
I’m late for class.
@zoom on 375 238 to 169% in 2
@pan to zone 1

@JERICHO walks to spot 1.217 292 -13 in zone 1 in 3 AND JERICHO does it while walk_talk_neutral_loop
@JERICHO spot 1.217 292 -13 in zone 1 at layer 4 AND JERICHO is talk_armsraised_neutral

    JERICHO (talk_armsraised_neutral)
See you when you get back from class, Dad.

@JERICHO is kiss_cheek_give AND GEORGE is kiss_cheek_receive
@GEORGE walks to spot 1.404 276 -46 in zone 1 AND GEORGE does it does it while idle_armscrossed_neutral_loop
&JERICHO walks to spot spot 1.217 94 -22 in zone 1

Thank you everyone!

I think, you have to put @JERICHO walks to screen center in zone 2 AND JERICHO is walk_netural_loop

If it is a loopbackground it will show her continous walking if not she will stop in the zone

Hope that makes sense

Not sure where you got that info from but you’re wrong. You can. You can check out Dara Amarie’s tutorials.

Wrong. Whether you use a looping background or a static one, the movement direction doesn’t change a thing.

How it works is, that when using a static background, you make the character move around. When you use a looping background, you don’t have to make the character move around, because just them doing the walking animation suffices.

As for @luasilence ,
You don’t know what the & does, but you do use it in your code? That’s a bit strange. Anyways, ‘&’ is the same as ‘@’ except, you use it when you want multiple commands to happen at the same time.

By example:
@BRO walks to spot
@BRO starts run
BRO will first go to a spot, then do the run animation.

&BRO walks to spot
@BRO starts run
BRO will first go to a spot while doing the run animation, both lines of code happen simultaneously.

If you’re looking for the basics of coding in the Writing Portal, I suggest you visit @Dara.Amarie 's beautiful website!

I saw it in some tutorials but I didn’t know the difference between them, I used it to see what difference it made, now I understand that there was none because I wasn’t using it correctly. Thank you!

Ah okay, I see. You’re welcome!

You’re welcome, now you know. And remember, practice makes perfect.
