Portal 10.80 UGC Update Coming Soon (Exciting!): Web Previewer Tracking


#1

This week we have two new tools to help you with writing your stories! Here’s a quick sneak peek of what’s to come!

A new toggle that we’ll be adding:

Turning on this button will show a bar that follows along in your script while it plays in the Web Previewer.

If you’re writing a complex story with lots of flags and counters then it can sometimes be difficult to keep track of what they are set to when you’re testing your story.

We’ll be adding a new Directing Helper button called “Flags & Counters” to help with this!

Clicking on this button will open this menu:

You will also be able to adjust which flags have been gained by clicking on the “Flags” button.

Flags that have been gained are shown in gold. Flags can easily be gained and lost by clicking on the flag in the menu.

Counters and Character Points can be adjusted in increments of 1, 5, 10 or typed in by hand.

We’ll be posting another announcement here when the new update to the Writer Portal is live. Stay posted for updates!

I know the Episode team is probably tired of hearing this, but implementing different body shapes and heights would really help people with stories and they would get published faster.

Ahhhh I love this!!! It will be so handy!

Will this just be for the web previewer, or will it also work when we preview our stories on our phones?

Edit: Yesssss it’s on our devices! Ahhhhh such a lifesaver!
