Okay weird qustion byt why are you even uploading a speach bubble

Well you need to set opacity to 1 and not to 0 if you want the overlay to appear


Im uploading a speech bubble beacuse i cant lower the opacity on charecters and i dont want the charecter (blank) to appear on the screen ,ofscreen etc…idk if this anwsers your question but yhea :slight_smile:

i tried that but it wont work

I am not seeing any errors compared to your script other than sometimes the overlay names change. Like: LO1 and a bunch of numbers_LO1

Well these are incorrect ? It should be without the % and as I said, 1 and not 0.

If this helps at all, you can remove the characters name by making a duplicate character and removing their name from script.

how would i remove the charecters name?without showing its name?

You can use percents or decimals for overlay opacity. Both of them work.

@overlay OVERLAY opacity 75%
@overlay OVERLAY opacity 0.75


Oh thank you ! I never saw it that way, so I thought it was wrong. I am sorry for misleading :slight_smile:


some people use decimals like me or percanteges anyways both ways are correct but thanks

Delete this and leave it blank
