Hi, [NAME] you look great.

The NAME would be whatever code you’ve used.


#151

Also try on the app. Web preview won’t work for typed choices :slight_smile:


#152

You use AND

@uses a beat (Aka a second) whereas & does this instantly…

So…
&Character1 enters from side to position AND CHARACTER2 (no @ or & in the rest on the names…) enters from… All on the same line.


#153

How does that animations called? (when the character gets up from squat)


#154

I know I can pan through a background via @pan to zone 2 in 0.5 and similar.

However, I don’t always want to pan through entire zones. Sometimes I want the background to move just a little bit, to merely ‘nudge’ the background slightly. Is this possible?


#155

stand_up for ink. Not sure for limelight. Think it’s transition command


#156

How do you mean? In the same zone? You can just zoom. You can zoom left/right as well as in/out :slight_smile:


#157

Probably should add that I work in Spotlight, don’t judge me.


#158

Can you explain? what is this error? error


#159

Can you screen shot your script where the error is? Or DM to me


#160

Post your script so we can see the error. :slight_smile:


#161

I keep getting the error “bodyTypes”. There isn’t really any clarification to it, it won’t show me where the mistake lies when I click on the error and I’ve searched everywhere for answers but couldn’t find anything.


#162

Can you show a screenshot of your script with an error?


#163

Thank You!


#164

I’m a new episode author and in one of the sentences the author(me) says I have my actual name in it but it says there is an error. How can I fix that?


#165

I’m not sure I understand, can I see your script please


#166

Is it possible to create timed choices? As in, choices with a timer, and the player must select a choice within the time limit? Otherwise one of the choices is automatically chosen, and the auto-chosen choice is usually the worst one. Is this a thing in Episode?


#167
CHAR
Dialogue

choice [timed:the # of seconds you want, the default is 15]
"option 1" {
CHAR
Dialogue
}
"option 2" {
CHAR
Dialogue
}

#168

As Cynthia has explained above :point_up: When the timer runs out and they’ve not chosen a choice, it automatically goes to the last choice. If that’s your intention, make the last choice the worst :slight_smile:
