Try adding in zone # to the shift and scaling lines

How do you add clothing. For example: I want to add a jacket to a character in a scene.
Can I do that?

You would have to make a new outfit with the clothes you want her to wear plus the jacket. There is no command to just add a specific piece of clothing

Okay, thanks!

the overlay does not show up now on web previous…

Heyy

How do you properly end a chapter and then start a new one. I’m really new and I need help, desperately. :sweat:

Welcome to the community! :grin:

The chapter will end once it gets to the end. It’s custom to write:

NARRATOR
To be continued…

…as the last line, but you can end it however you want.

To start a new episode, you click New Episode here, the fourth button:


:+1: Each episode has to be 400+ lines long (although more than that is recommended).

why does it say “Unexpected character” when i add a basic choice?
here’s my script

choice “Ew, gross dude, get help” {

JOSHUA
Whatever man.

} “She’s Asexual” {

JOSHUA
Yeah, that doesn’t make her any less smashable

}“Don’t even think about it”

( :arrow_down_small: down here is where it says “unexpected character”)

JOSHUA
Can’t help how I feel right now, ha.

{

} “Go away dude, I don’t wanna talk to you.” {

JOSHUA
Whatever loser. Don’t come crying wolf when something bad happens to you.

}

I really need some quick answers asap!

From what I see, you’d do this:

}“Don’t even think about it”{

JOSHUA
Can’t help how I feel right now, ha.

} “Go away dude, I don’t wanna talk to you.” {

JOSHUA
Whatever loser. Don’t come crying wolf when something bad happens to you.

}

You can use layers:

I know I already look at that I meant how to have a character in front of a layer I have the characters in a negative layer do I put the overlay in a positive layer…?

You can add in zone 2 to the shift command as you’re in zone 2.

You can read more about overlays here:

what do you by shift command?

@overlay 6160912332750848_HUG shifts to 164 194 in zone 2

Add “in zone 2” there
