Tappable overlay problem pt2

So I’m still having problems with my tappable overlay. A friend of mine who is amazing with tappable overlays and other sorts of directing has also tried figuring it out and she can’t see what the problem is…I’m hoping somebody can help me out as I don’t really wanna take it out of my script…here’s what I have…

KANE (talk_flirt_charming)
You could try and report me, but in my defence…as I said I tried to remove you you refused and and attacked me so I had no choice but to do it myself.
YOU (talk_airquotes)
I didn’t attack you…
YOU (talk_explain_neutral)

KANE (talk_doubtful)
You shoved me…it’s still classed as an attack.

the overlay is meant to be tappable but when you tap it nothing happens and it doesn’t change into a darker shade of colour like how tappable overlays should be

What is the problem?

Yeah I forgot to mention that part lol sorry.
I’m trying to have the reader answer the call by tapping on the caller icon that’s placed on the screen above the characters head, but when I tap it the overlay isn’t changing into a dimmer colour as it does when overlays are tapped


No, I never normally have to

@overlay CALL ICON opacity 0 in 0

So when someone will tap on it, it will fade away or you can do whatever you want.
You can even shift it outside the screen after making it’s opacity 0. So that no one can tap on it later.

Will that work though? They have to tap it to make it work?

Basically here you write, whatever you want to do after tapping on the overlay. So, I guess it will work. Try it. If it doesn’t work, then show me a picture of the code.

Once my phones charged a bit more, I’ll give it a try.
I mean I tried it before and it only worked if you tapped the edge of the overlay :unamused:

Then I guess you have to crop the overlay.

like cut it down?

Cut it into the exact size. Don’t keep any extra area.
For an example:

Ok I’ll get to that now as I’ve just turned my phone on


It doesnt work :tired_face:

can you please give here your call overlay? I will try to test it .

Here you go, hope you can figure it out 🤦

Hi I tested it and it actually seems to me be working just fine.

when I tapp around the overlay nothing happens when I tapp the overlay it starts to zoom.

It doesnt cange the color but it is more ike bug than problem of the script - maybe it has someth
ing to do with tle lowering of the memory size and overall quality of episode in last days

if you want more visible efect just make it disapear with overlay changed to zero after being touched as mentioned abode - I also tested this and was also working fine.

I don’t understand why it’s not working on my side. I’ve tried everything.

so when you tap it it doesn’t move to the zoom?
