Tappable overlay help needed!

So I’ve learned how to use tappable overlays as I’m trying to make a minigame in my story.
Basically, in the minigame there are circles hovering around the area you want to search.
When you tap the circle, I want the opacity to fade back to 0 while the character searches that area.
I have done what I thought would work, but every time I tap the circle, the circles fade but come back within a second or two.

This is a part of my script, and if anybody could tell me where I’m going wrong, I would greatly appreciate it!

&overlay CIRCLE opacity 0
&overlay CIRCLE2 opacity 0
&overlay CIRCLE3 opacity 0
@ROSELLA spot 0.622 -40 224 in zone 1 at layer -1
@ROSELLA changes into ROSELLA_blue
@zoom on 25 185 to 134% in 0
@cut to zone 1
@transition fade in black 1

@ROSELLA walks to spot 0.622 127 219 THEN ROSELLA is think_rubchin

label bedroom_search
&overlay CIRCLE opacity 1 in 2
&overlay CIRCLE2 opacity 1 in 2
&overlay CIRCLE3 opacity 1 in 2
@speechbubble is 161 362 to 82% with tail_bottom_left
readerMessage Tap the circle you want to search.
ROSELLA
(Where should I search?)

tappable
“CIRCLE2” {
&overlay CIRCLE opacity 0 in 0.5
&overlay CIRCLE2 opacity 0 in 0.5
&overlay CIRCLE3 opacity 0 in 0.5
@ROSELLA walks to spot 0.502 73 268 AND ROSELLA does it while walk_neutral_rear AND ROSELLA faces right
@ROSELLA is tinker_stand_neutral_loop_rear

You search through table top, trying not to burn your sleeves on the candles.
You cannot find anything important.

@ROSELLA walks to spot 0.622 127 219
goto bedroom_search
}

Thank you for reading! x

Try clearing the overlay maybe instead of changing the opacity؟

This is the entire mini game :grimacing:

I thought you might use opacity 1 after choice but you didn’t so I can’t really see a problem here :thinking: are you trying this on Web Preview? Does the same thing happen on the app?

Yes I’ve tried it on both Web Preview and on the app… It glitches every time and I can’t figure out why either.
I was hoping it was something really dumb that I’d missed :sweat_smile:

let me try this in my script :thinking:

Thank you so much for your help :pray:

works perfectly for me, they’re fading out till after the goto… it might be a glitch. If you want you can PM me link to your story and I will check it for you

At the beginning of the mini game where you have opacity 1 in 2 I’m wondering if this is the problem, because you may have tapped too fast before the opacity 0 in 0.5 - Maybe put
&overlay CIRCLE opacity 1 in 2
&overlay CIRCLE2 opacity 1 in 2
@ overlay CIRCLE3 opacity 1 in 2
So the overlays will be fully visible before the game starts.
