@RudeInception How to use looping backgrounds? (I totally forgot.:sweat_smile:)

BTW, just use transition_squat_to_stand_neutral after sleep_lay_uncomfortable_awaken is fine, but you can also add standup_neutral after transition_squat_to_stand_neutral if you want. :slight_smile:

If you mean using a looping bg that exists on the Writer’s Portal, it’s nothing different from a regular bg. Just add the loop bg and it will loop on its own.
If you mean how to create your own looping bg, here’s a guide made the awesome @Apes on looping bg: 🏔 HOW TO: Loop your own Background

@RudeInception quick question :sweat_smile:

How can I loop an overlay without moving it left and then right (or vice versa), or without resetting it to the original spot in 0 seconds between the loop? It looks glitchy, like it jumps for a split second when I try resetting it in 0 seconds before looping :flushed: (not a looping background but just an overlay in a still background)

Thank you in advance!!

Ok. Thx. So can I just type:
EXT. OUTDOOR STREET LOOP - DAY
@ROSITA stands screen center AND ROSITA is walk_neutral
@pause for 10

How to make a readerMessage last longer?

unfortunately, you can’t :neutral_face: but support here!

Hey! I’m trying to make a mini game where the reader has to decide where to put some pieces of a jigsaw. I’m getting an error saying that some labels are false or not used, I honestly don’t know what’s up with it! I’d appreciate your help so much! Here’s the coding: INT. PM with PM-BL to 1.000 170 390 with PM-BR to 1.000 4 398 with PM-TL to 1.000 137 -8 with PM-TR to 1.000 -3 5 with TRIANGLES to 1.000 0 0 with BRB to 1.000 4 398 with BLB to 1.000 170 390 with TRB to 1.000 -3 5 with TLB to 1.000 137 -8

Sorry for the late reply. It depends on how your looping the overlay. Maybe if you Can give me a little more context, I can give you a better answer.

Alright so I am trying to get a timed choice to work but I always get the same error.

Code

choice [timed: 7]
“Break Focus” {
@MIRELLA starts react_angry_shakefists
MIRELLA (talk_angry)
I didn’t even start yet and I can’t focus!
goto forest_focus_choice_start
} “Keep Focus” {
goto forest_focus_choice_2
} “Break Focus” {
@MIRELLA starts react_angry_shakefists
MIRELLA (talk_angry)
I didn’t even start yet and I can’t focus!
goto forest_focus_choice_start
} “Break Focus” {
@MIRELLA starts react_angry_shakefists
MIRELLA (talk_angry)
I didn’t even start yet and I can’t focus!
goto forest_focus_choice_start

do you know how to make locked choices?
I mean I want the choice appear but not in blue color but in gray and with a lock on it. I’M BEGGING YOU PLZ HELP AS FAST AS YOU CAN

Sorry for the super late reply. Not sure I got enough of the script. Let me know if you still need a hand.

Didn’t get here very fast and for that I do apologize. To get a padlock icon onto a choice option you just add LOCKED in between <> and place that in front of the choice option:

choice
“Choice 1” {

} “Choice 2” {

}< LOCKED>“Choice 3”{

}

Choice 3 would be locked in this example.
