Need tappable overlay help

So in my story, you can choose from three options who to go talk to by pressing the arrow overlays to pan to the next zone but once you press the first arrow to get to zone 2 the arrow to get back to zone 1 doesn’t work (I hope this makes sense)

label choose_date

readerMessage Tap the arrow to move to next person
tappable
“RIGHT ARROW” {
@pan to zone 2
} “LEFT ARROW” {
@pan to zone 1
} “BESTIES” {
NARR
You picked besties
} “NERD” {
NARR
You picked the nerd
} “BROS” {
NARR
You picked the bros
}

are all of your overlays placed in a certain zone? if you pan to zone 2 and the overlays are in zone 1 it wont work

Nope, they’re in the right zones :sob: only the “BESTIE” and “RIGHT ARROW” work though

@overlay BESTIES shifts to 66 178 in zone 1
@overlay BESTIES scales to 0.160 0.160

@overlay NERD scales to 0.142 0.142
@overlay NERD shifts to 117 226 in zone 2

@overlay BROS shifts to 66 178 in zone 3
@overlay BROS scales to 0.160 0.160

@overlay RIGHT ARROW create
@overlay RIGHT ARROW scales to 0.442 0.442
@overlay RIGHT ARROW shifts to 228 64 in zone 1
@overlay RIGHT ARROW opacity 1 in 1

@overlay LEFT ARROW create
@overlay LEFT ARROW scales to 0.442 0.442
@overlay LEFT ARROW shifts to 35 441 in zone 2
@overlay LEFT ARROW opacity 1 in 1

you could try using @ui instead of @overlay
If not it may be because your overlays are too big, are they cropped to be just the arrows, or does the overlay take up the whole screen?

I’ll try ui!! I think the overlays are cropped to the size of the arrow but idk :sob: :sob: it’s my first time doing tappable overlays

can you comment the overlays here? I can look

thank you!!


yes theyre cropped, that wont the issue, let me know if @ui works. if not you could try using & instead of @

okay! thanks again

Who’s where? Who’s in zone 1, who’s in zone 2, zone 3? And where does the game start from? The person in zone 1, 2, or 3?




then it pans back to zone 1

Try this. I haven’t tested it myself, but it should do what you’re wanting.
