Odd warning message- coding help please


I’m in the process of coding a dance sequence and I’ve gotten this error message twice trying to use the sing_dance_energetic_doublepoint_loop and the walk_sing_energetic_loop animations. I’d appreciate another set of eyes, I haven’t updated/coded my story in a year :grimacing:

I think it could be that you wrote “in zone 2 in 3” or the THEN because I have never seen it in use, I always use AND, but that could be me since I’m recent in writing.

Its strange because I used the same format in a previous line and that doesn’t have a warning.

Try this maybe?

@DANCER 3 walks to spot 0.569 55 200 in zone 2 in 3 AND DANCER 3 moves to layer 0
@DANCER 3 is sing_dance_energetic_doublepoint_loop
@DANCER 3 is sing_dance_energetic_pointup_loop
@pause for a beat
@DANCER 3 is dance_drop_it

I’ll give it a try thank you

lol episode bodyshamer :pensive:

It’s an error that has been appearing for every body type that isn’t generic… so if you slim, soft or such it appears…

PS: It has been annoying for the past two weeks

And if I changed them to generic and it still happened? I’ll be sad to abandon my vision for the scene @Jo93922

You don’t need, it doesn’t stop you from publishing, I had it for one of my most recent episodes, and I had no issue publishing it

Oh… yey :smiley:

It showed them idle in the preview so I just went ahead and changed it for the time being

It’s strange but one thing careful with using is with loop animations, since this command is for while the animations are happening for looping ones is better to use start.

From your original one, I would try

&DANCER 3 moves to layer 0 then DANCER 3 walks to spot S X Y in # then DANCER 3 starts dancing animation then pause for # (number of seconds or a beat) then DANCER 3 starts other dancing animation then pause for 2 then DANCER 3 is dance_drop_it

Because the walk AND move to layer # can be the reason for staying idle

It is a glitch that Episode has been trying to fix for a while. You can still publish with this error and it won’t effect your story.

Then @littledove1420 you should try to preview it from your phone

Definitely, if the issue doesn’t occur there then it should be fine. It happens with a lot of INK animations and some LL ones as well.
