Bump :upside_down_face:

like the “turn your volume up” or “mature themes” splashes? If your story has mature themes then definitely. Lots of people have pre-made ones in their drives.

Could you maybe post some of the code here to I can try to see what’s wrong?
Also make sure to specify the zone like @CHARACTER spot x y x in zone 2
or whatever, sometimes they autoplace in the wrong zone.

Hm… have you tried looking on your phone instead of the previewer on the portal?
Also try
INT. LASKYLINEINTRO - NIGHT
@cut to zone 1
@BEVERLY stands screen center AND BEVERLY faces right
@BEVERLY is arms_crossed
