Script Errors: Help please!

community

#1

So everyone, I am VERY new to writing scripts and I’m trying really hard to get into it so I can start writing stories without help. However, since I am new to it all, I have errors here and there. Usually I look it up on the internet to and it gets fixed. I keep having this error where it says “Unexpected end of input. You cannot end your script with a label.” I have the Narrator speaking and below it I tried to add an alarm clock sound but for some reason it keeps giving me this error when trying to save. I can’t find any answers about it either!

Can you copy what you have there like a few lines so I can see it? Please

You can’t end a story using a sound command. Add a pause after it and it should clear it up.

Do you guys know how to have a character get out of bed by any chance? I know there isn’t an exact animation, but there is like a stand one right?

Standing animation:

LL: standup_neutral
Ink: stand_up

Hey guys!
So far my script is going great and I’m learning a lot. I have one thing that’s rather complicated, my character is running towards the right of the screen and I have the directing following her but my question is how do I have another character already standing in another zone and spot so that when the director follows my running character he will already be there?


#10

Stand the character in that zone before the other characters starts running.

Ex:

@CHAR2 stands _______ in zone 2

@CHAR1 walks to ________ in zone 2


#11

Hey! I am trying to make both of my characters using the same dialogue. How do I do that?


#12

You mean you want the characters to say the same thing at the same time?


#13

Yes!

So you can’t have two characters sharing a bubble or have there bubbles come out at the same time unless you use an overlay (which I recommend if you want the double bubbles).
But what most authors do is they use a narrator bubble with BOTH as the name and have the characters both do a talking animation at the same time.

Ex:

&CHAR1 is talk_happy_smile
&CHAR2 is talk_sad

NARRATOR (BOTH)
We should break up!
