Hi! I’m trying to have readers customize their own characters and found that with the male template, it keeps saying “error” because apparently none of the eyebrows exist.


#5014

Check the bottom of the first post on this thread for possible causes of this error :slight_smile:

Oh thanks! Hahaha didn’t look through the whole thing!:joy::grin:

Hi again, so I’ve been having a problem with my overlays. In some scenes, the overlay im using for a future scene would quickly pop in and out of the beginning of the scene when I preview it on the mobile version and I’m not sure why exactly, it shows up real quickly kind of like a flash in and out of my scene but works fine with the rest of the scene and the overlay is being used, Ive had this problem for a while and no matter what I do, I cant seem to direct it so it doesnt do that randomly.


#5017

Try to add your overlay to the background instead or use & instead of @ when creating overlay in the scene and make sure you add “in 0” to the shifts to and scales to commands. That’s mean that overlay will be there straight away


#5018

I have actually, I don’t ever use the @overlay OVERLAY create thing anymore bc the overlay typically doesn’t show up or work for me so I usually add it to my back and so &overlay OVERLAYNAME opacity 0 after I direct the zoom and zone so it’s invisible immediately but whenever I preview it, it pops in and out right at the beginning of the scene then the rest of the scene goes on and I direct the overlay to do whatever and it works but for some reason at the beginning it pops in and out really quickly.


#5019

can you show me your script?

#5021

place your overlay off screen (so it’s not visible) and after the opacity command between lines place it when you want it exactly


#5022

Hey, I have a question: If I place a speech bubble at a certain spot on the screen, will the rest of the speech bubbles appear at the same spot or is it automatically removed?


#5023

after @speechbubble reset the bubble will move to default position (somewhere near your character face)


#5024

Okay thanks!

#5030

To fix that problem you would type:
sound alarmclock_beep

what I did was remove the dash line (-) and replace it with an underscore (_).

Hope this helps!!:grin:
