You’re Isabella Swan, the new girl. Hi. I’m Eric. The eyes and ears of this place. Anything you need. Tour guide, lunch date, shoulder to cry on.

Good headline for your feature!

    BELLA (talk_unsure)

I – no, I’m not news – I’m, seriously, not at all

you have to first spot Eric ofscren and only ather tht aou should give him the walking command

Also you wave wrong this line:

&BELLA walks to spot 1.730 120 -292 in zone 3 in 8 BELLA YOU does it while walk_neutral_offset_loop

guess you do not have character BELLA YOU and you are also missing an “and”

&BELLA walks to spot 1.730 120 -292 in zone 3 in 8 AND BELLA does it while walk_neutral_offset_loop

The same goes for her you walk her but you havent spotted her before so she has nowhere from to walk to.

also all the BG characters should be with & and not @ othervice in app you will see the popping on the screen one after another

how do i spot him off screen sorry im kida new to this

when you are spotdiirecting you simply move him ofscreen in the preview window and copy the coordinates something like this below.

I went through you script and being honest I am not sure why you move her on the different layers and her walking is also not much clear to me why is it so…but if it works for you as you intended then ignore me. :smiley:
