Hey, I’m having trouble with episode showing some scenes in my script.
I’m trying to show the other students facial expressions (Solina and Evelyn) before it goes to the teacher asking “Alessa?” but it won’t show the students, instead it goes straight to the teacher and what she says. How can I fix this?

Instead of starting another scene with the same background put
@ALESSA stands screen center in zone 3 AND SOLINA stands screen right AND EVELYN stands screen left

(I just made up random spots) and continue

How do I use choices from a previous episode? (I know, silly question lol, I’m new)

You have to use gains and the if/elif/else system

choice
“Say Sorry”{
readerMessage Relationship Increased!
readerMessage Nick will remember you said sorry
SAMANTHA (talk_awkward)
I’m so sorry.

    NICK (talk_angry_stubborn)
Your apology means nothing to me.
Just get out of my way.

@NICK is idle_angry_arms_crossed
@SAMANTHA is idle_angry_arms_crossed

}

readerMessage Relationship Decreased!
readerMessage Nick will remember you judge him.

    SAMANTHA (talk_angry_accuse)

} NICK (talk_angry)

After the closing bracket of “tell him off” you have to hit the return key and have NICK (talk_angry) on a different line

And 1 shows the overlay

So i have to show a overlay in a choice scene? Oh so Nick has to say something in 2 choice other then tell him off?

Oh no, you have to have the nick part on another line, and you don’t have to have an overlay in a choice scene

When i go into this the first choice Say Sorry" NICK says NICK (talk_angry_stubborn)
Your apology means nothing to me.
Just get out of my way. He should only say this but then he goes to 2 choice
And goes right into “Tell him off”

You have some nerve to judge me, Sweetheart Why is he saying this in the first choice?

You better watch your words!!
