Hello! I’m writing a story that I thought was pretty much done since it looked fine on the portal and the app and am two days away from publishing. I decided to read it as a user to see if there was something that needed fixing, and immediately throughout episode 2, the characters started sliding instead of walking. I’ve tried fixing the first scene a million ways and it’s just not working… Please help. What can I do here?
Try changing the “is” to “starts” and refreshing your app. I’d also add “AND ANNA faces left” to the end as well to make sure she stays facing that way.
It might also be because you have her doing animations with “&” before the pauses which makes her do them during the pauses. That could be resulting in her not having enough time to complete the think_rubchin animation and messing up how she moves when she’s required to walk. I’d suggest removing one of the pauses and replacing the “&” with a “@“ for the line where she’s doing the think_rubchin.
I rearranged the order a bit, but perhaps this may work:
#Have characters offscreen and change into the desired outfits.
BACKGROUND LINE HERE with OVERLAYS
@ANA spot 1.280 -88 -4 in zone 1 AND ANA faces right AND ANA moves to layer 3 AND ANA is think_rubchin AND EMMA2 spot 0.740 247 286 in zone 2 AND EMMA2 moves to layer 1 AND EMMA2 faces left AND EMMA2 is idle_sit_leanback_tired_loop
@pause for 1
@ANA walks to spot 1.280 160 0 in zone 1 in 2 THEN ANA starts think_rubchin THEN pause for 1
@ANA walks to spot 1.280 37 0 in zone 2 in 3 AND ANA does it while walk_neutral_loop_rear AND ANA faces left THEN ANA starts idle_rear AND ANA faces left
@pause for 3
@cut to zone 2
It’s no problem, I’m sorry I wasn’t able to help though.
I honestly don’t know why she’s still sliding. My characters slide sometimes but usually refreshing the app and/or resetting my story progress normally fixes it for me, so if those aren’t/won’t work(ing) for you, it might be worthwhile to send a ticket to Episode just in case it’s a bug.
Hmmm… the sliding usually happens when you walk the character for a certain time but before the time is finished you let him do another animation…however … I don’t see this in your script (the pause after the walking is longer then the walking itself) so I am bit clueless … so this is just a blind shot since I always put does it while right behind the walk command - try it will help.
