Script error from Simple Arrow Dressing game template by dara amerie

I’m getting a message saying: Expected character or scene change. Found “Black One Shoulder Cut Out Dress” instead. Did you forget to capitalize the name or close the {} around the animation?

Could someone who has used this template help me and explain more clearly how to do this? I’m getting errors and I’m not sure what I did wrong.

Can you send your script at the part that has the error?

I also added her limelight customization script before the dress up, but there was no errors with the customization one

when adding overlays to the background you cant use the AND command, you need to say with OVERLAYNAME with OVERLAYNAME2 etc

Oh ok, I fixed that. But the error is still showing up for the part where I typed in the outfit’s name

label tap_outfit_1
@MEI =1
Black One Shoulder Cut Out Dress (ERROR HERE)
@MEI changes into MEI_cutout

I don’t know why it’s like this because I have two other outfits and there is no error. On her website it said to enter the outfit name at that spot, unless I’m doing something wrong

did you name your overlays the same as daras template? if not you need to change her overlay names to yours

It’s not an overlay issue. If it was it would flat out say it’s an overlay issue.

I am getting an error at
ARROWS DRESSING GAME - 3 OUTFITS {

Put a # at the beginning of it

#ARROWS DRESSING GAME - 3 OUTFITS {

If I put #ARROWS DRESSING GAME - 3 OUTFITS {

then I get an error saying: There is a { on line 2506 that does not have a matching }

Line 2506: } “No, let me try the others” {

Can you send me an actual screenshot of your script? That would help more here

Oh, just add a bracket after the game:

} “No, let me try the others” {

Also, you’ll need to fix your quotation marks. They look wonky from the transfer. I’d select the singular quotation mark, use Ctrl + F, click all, then do " once. Then do it again for the other side. Similarly to what you do to change character names

I noticed my overlay names were different from the overlays in her original script, so I replaced them, but now I’m getting another error
