Tips and Ideas?

Hi! I’m new to Episode and I’m trying to make a story.I already have a story idea, but might need some more in the future. Also, I’m having trouble with basic things like making a choice cost gems AND be premium. I have yet to figure that out, so it would be nice if anyone showed me an example! Thank you!

choice
< GEM > “Hi” {
#dialogue here
}

and

choice
< PREMIUM > “Hello” {
#dialogue here
}

Close the spaces.

Thank you! But, whenever I play episode, the gem choice is always premium. Do you know how to make the same choice cost gems and premium at the same time? If not, thank you for still helping!

I hope this helps…In the thread :point_down: look for a link called" HOW TO TRANSITIONS" that should answer your question about how to fade the screen into black

I don’t think it’s possible.

So, I have encountered a new problem! How fun! Anyway, it’s trying to zoom up on the character. For example, I am working on my story and I am at an air port scene. So I of course make a new background and then preview it to see if it works. I watch it and now I am zoomed in the left corner. The command I put before it was @CHAR enters from right to middle. Also, I don’t know if middle should be center. Or something like that. Thank you for reading my question!

its @CHAR enters from right to screen center

there is no middle

the positions are

Character Positions:

  • Foreground:
    • screen left
    • upscreen left
    • screen center
    • upscreen right
    • screen right
  • Background:
    • back far left
    • back left
    • back right
