Are you sure you want to skip the chapter?

THE TAPABBLE MENU DOESN’T WORK…I CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT

Does anyone know if it’s possible to shorten the speech bubble command to only specify the bubble size?

In my opinion the default size of the speech bubble is a little too large. The command structure is position then size then tail. Can I add only size somehow?

You don’t have to add the tail placement, but you must have position and scale. There is no other shortened command.

@speechbubble is x y to %

The first time the female character (nova) walks perfectl fine from right of the screen to left the next walking code she walks the opp way. Even when i’ve tried coding her to enter from screen right and to the location

blah


Anyone know the solution?

Remove the numbers from in front of the overlay on line 1079

You have her walking to 231 in zone 2 the first time, and then the 2nd time she walks you’re making her walk to 266 in zone 2, which is to the right which is why she is walking to the right.

It worked, thank you :kissing_heart:

IS THERE ANY WAY I CAN MAKE HER TO WALK TOWARDS LEFT? :star:

How do you get a character’s customized name to appear in the display?

Change her spot to a spot to the right so she can walk to the left

This is an issue i have been having for a while, please let me know how I can fix it.

Hello,
I’ve seen in some stories when zooming in to focus on one character the other characters get kinda faded? does that make sense is there a way to learn how to do it?

I want to zoom in and only focus on the character without the background characters being opaque

I’m using @zoom to try to zoom into the center of the screen but i dont know what the center of the screen coordinates are

Hey, my tear overlay won’t show up. The actual overlay is approved and has been for a while. The overlay worked the last few times and I was rereading my chapter and it stopped working.

Here is my coding (without the slashes because I can’t mention people):

@/pause for a beat

@/zoom on 216 261 to 501% in 0

@pause for a beat

@overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR create

@overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR shifts to 140 240

@overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR create and overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR opacity 1 in 0 and overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR shifts to 96 302 in zone 1 and overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR scales to 0.199 0.199 and overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR moves to layer 1

@overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR shifts to 210 263 in zone 1 using easeout

@overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR shifts to 213 237 in zone 1 in 2 using easeout
@overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR scales to 0.2 0.2

@overlay TEARDROP.CLEAR opacity 0 in 1 using easeout

Can anybody help me figure out what’s wrong?

If you preview and click ‘Show helpers’ and then ‘Camera’ you can adjust the zoom using ‘zoom’ and ‘focus’. Then you can copy and paste the line that shows up underneath the preview.

Alright, I need to ask a question for someone who isn’t on the forums. She wants to add in a template that would take most of the facial parts of the character’s face. She wants to be able to code that into the writers portal episode script. Is this possible?

@JemU776 do you think you could help me out?
