Heylo guys! I was just writing my story and I tried doing the “shake screen while talk” method with the & sign but it only read the last one. Can somebody help me?
Revision:

&CRYSTAL faces right AND LEO is shocked
&zoom on 0 387 to 135% in 0.1
&zoom on 127 381 to 135% in 0.1
&zoom on 0 114 to 135% in 0.1
&zoom on 191 164 to 135% in 0.1
sound record_scratch_stop

CRYSTAL (scream)
EvErYoNe JuSt ShUt Up!

Thank you!

Maybe try this:

@CRYSTAL faces right AND LEO is shocked
@CRYSTAL starts scream
@zoom on 0 387 to 135% in 0.1 THEN zoom on 127 381 to 135% in 0.1 THEN zoom on 0 114 to 135% in 0.1 THEN zoom on 191 164 to 135% in 0.1
sound record_scratch_stop

CRYSTAL
EvErYoNe JuSt ShUt Up!

:thinking:

Yes it did work but I just needed to change all the @ sign to the & sign Thks

i’m trying to do a full class scene, (using INT. CLASSROOM FRONT OL - DAY) but i’m really stuck. how do you get the characters behind the desks? i’m super sorry if it’s simple, i just have no idea how to do it… :frowning:
thank you!

Why isn’t this script working?
ll

&LUCAS walks to spot % X Y in S
@HARPER walks to spot % X Y in S

You forgot the word spot

Thank you so much, it worked.
Also I saw that I forgot the word in for the duration too.

NP :balloon:

you would need overlay for this background, unless you want to place them only in the first row

what happens when u press this link to my story?? just curious lmao

nothing :smiley: as it’s a web url, it won’t work

thank u! i wanted to see if my frens or other people could play my story without it being published so they can give me feedback, is there any way to do that??

yes, just share the link from the bottom of your main page :slight_smile:

thank you!

Hi guys! So how do I change a character’s display name without the reader choosing. This is for a character in which at first he has no name, but then the main character finds his name and now when he talks, his name pops up. I hope this made sense :sweat_smile:

you need to create 2 characters to do that, one without display name and one with the name, and when you ready just remove the character and place another one on the same place :slight_smile:

Ohh okay, but is there a way to do that without two characters?

No, unfortunately.

Oh okay. Thanks anyway!
