Outro coding help

Ok so I am trying to create a outro where people can tap either bonus content and take them too the
main menu page

and hit the tappable overlays which leads them too either

Or hit Next to goto the next episode

anyone who can help me how to do this I will be thankful for your help!!

and Here is the template I have so far:

@pause for a beat
@transition fade out black in 1
@zoom on 320 454 to 100% in 0
EXT.END_CREDITS with BONUS with NEXTEPISODEB
@overlay NEXTEPISODEB shifts to -128 -77 in zone 1 AND overlay NEXTEPISODEB scales to 0.599 0.599
@overlay BONUS shifts to -77 312 in zone 1 AND overlay BONUS scales to 0.503 0.503

tappable
“BONUS”{

goto BONUS
}“NEXTEPISODEB”{

goto NEXTEPISODEB
}

label NEXTEPISODEB
@pause for a beat
@transition fade out black in 1
INT. BLACK - NIGHT

@J.Miley do you know what I am doing wrong bc i keep getting errors and labels that doesn’t exist?

The code looks perfect I think, there is an issue? U created amazing graphics,as i am also creating my overlays and backgrounds, i imagine how hard u work…coding, design and ideas…in the end u wrote Tap when finsih reading. Change into finish

Except it’s giving me that this label doesn’t exists error and can’t figure out how it giving that type of error?

Can u give me the name of the label that creates error? Did u spell it wrong? Maybe u should check again





Did u type all your background names correctly? Also just my opinion,I think when u write &overlay in the beginning of the scene, maybe it made an error, but i am not sure

Yep, the backgrounds names are correct. I will see if that’s the problem.

Still looking at the script, but why are you going to the label that it’s posted under. If there was no error, this would just create a never ending loop.

The goto and label do not match. SocialMedia is spelled different in the label than in the goto. The labels and goto have to be spelled exactly the same.

This only works if you have something preventing the script from automatically moving on. The readerMessage is just a toaster that pops up. I usually add a Narrative box with 0% speechbubble because otherwise, it will goto the label and keep repeating over and over.

Example:
label CREDITSB
@transition fade in black in 1
@zoom on 320 454 to 100% in 0
EXT.CREDITSBG
@pause for a beat
readerMessage (Tap when finish reading)
@speechbubble is 191 236 to 0%
NARRATOR
Tap to continue.
goto CREDITSB ← You need to put a different Goto here because this will just make it repeat over and over. This would be your main menu or whatever you want the reader to see after they’ve seen this screen.

I see what you mean. I have the next episode branch working well, it’s the bonus content page is giving me issues bc idk how to get my branching correct when people hit the soical media, credit, update schedule overlays and after done reading it takes takes them back to the menu page and hitting the main menu overlay takes you to the title page with bonus content or next episode overlays.

Bc how do I get my main menu overlay go back to title page

I have made some changes below, but see note at bottom.

label MAINMENUB - So this creates an issue, because this sends you back to end credits, so I don’t see where readers are ever able to end the story.

Ok so I got the Menu Main and Credits and the Next Episode overlays to work but for whatever the reason is Update Schedule, Soical Media overlays aren’t tappable and only hitting the Credits overlay.

How close are your overlays cropped? When it comes to tappable overlays, even the transparent area is tappable. That means if the transparent part of the overlay overlaps onto another tappable overlay, one or the other might not be able to be tapped. If that makes sense.

Ya I figure that out when I tap the Soical Media overlay underneath it and wasn’t able to tap Update overlay so now I got it working and appreciate your help @J.Miley !!!

But if you have some time would you be one of my beta testers and see how it looks?

Any time.
As far as beta testing… I don’t know if you want me to. I have been known to be a little too brutally honest. :crazy_face:

Well I rather have brutality honest than not have someone to tell me the truth after all how will i improve if i don’t learn from others!
