Many authors use this when they have CC. Since they don’t know what the reader will choose in characteristics for the MC, they make a double in order to do flashbacks and show a younger version of the MC. If they did this without the becomes command, then they run a risk of messing up the readers CC. The same thing with the family. Since the author doesn’t know what characteristics were chosen, they would have to resort to a more tedious method in order to have the family resemblance. The becomes command makes it easier.
Okay, I have this problem where i put @CHARACTER faces right and the character just doesn’t appear on the screen, everytime i click the directing toll it keeps telling me “run time error”??? I’ve never had this problem before.
You’ll have to reset your story progress from the bar at the top right. Since it’s the character’s last appearance change, and characters remain in their last appearance change until they receive another change command, they’ll stay that way unless you reset.
Let’s call my MC as a kid (MCMIRROR), and this serves as a duplicate.
Then, after putting CC for the MC at the start of the episode, I just put “MCMIRROR becomes MC” AND THEN in flashback scenes, that’s where I can change their features in the script? (MCMIRROR changes hair into High Ponytail, for example?)
Is this the only instance it’s used?
And does it work on the opposite gender too? Let’s say I want a MC to look like their dad.
Will it still work, as long as I change the features in the scripted scene afterwards? Or will it only affect same gender?
