It doesn’t work for me either :confused:

I think you can use EXT. BRICK MANSION - NIGHT, it works and just add dim effect

Yea I guess that’s the only way😥

how do people “click/tap” on overlays to do something?

Thank you @kw.episode and @BlauwStories03 :blush:

Why isn’t my overlay showing up?

INT. BLACK - NIGHT with SELFIE MALE 6

@YOU stands screen center

04%20PM

You have to set what it scale and shifts to.


Like I did in there. (I hope it’s not too messy to understand,)

Thanks!

Hello! I’m just starting with Episode and I wanted my readers to be able to choose their character’s name so I’ve used a template but it simply doesn’t show anything beside the Narrator’s text… Thank you !

Here’s my code :
INT. BLACK - NIGHT
NARRATOR
To be continued…

        NARRATOR
Who do you want to be?

label first_name_input

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FIRSTNAME)

if (FIRSTNAME is “”) {

    NARRATOR
You do need a name...

goto first_name_input

} else {
continue
}

Just write:

INT. BLACK - NIGHT

NARRATOR
What do you want your name to be?

input What’s Your First Name?|What’s Your First Name?|Done(FIRSTNAME)

NARR
Nice to meet you [FIRSTNAME]!

#rest of script goes here

Test this out on your mobile device so you can name them and their name shows. If u test on the Portal on your computer/laptop, it’ll say something like Autobot.

Also make sure their display name says FIRSTNAME so their name appears to the reader.

Example, when you go to characters, it’ll say something like:

Script Name: YOU
Display Name: YOU

Script name is the name you write in the script, display name is the name displayed (shown) to the reader and it can even be blank (so no name). Anyways, script name can’t be changed or duplicated, only the display name can be. Change it to FIRSTNAME, so it becomes:

Script Name: YOU
Display Name: FIRSTNAME

then save ^^

So in ur script when main character is talking and saying their name, it’s written like this:

YOU (talk_neutral)
Hey I’m [FIRSTNAME].

It doesn’t have to be FIRSTNAME, it can be anything by the way. NAME, YOU, JEM, etc. Possibilities are endless. Just know that whatever you use needs to be the display name so that it’s shown to the reader.

This works perfectly thank you very much for your kindness! Have a great day. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Curious… how long does it usually take to get overlays and backgrounds approved?

It depends. Sometimes the log gets really backed up.

Generally I’d say a week or so. Lately it’s been longer than usual.

Okay. Because I created a few overlays that are crucial to my story.

Just gotta wait it out. I think they’re experiencing a higher volume than normal right now.
