Two errors (code)

how do i fix this error?

I’m pretty sure there’s no such thing as -0 0 :thinking:

Perhaps try 0 0?

okay thank you

it works but the rest of my two or three overlay are not the size that i want

I just tested the minus zero code on one of my own overlays, and -0 -0 is fine to use in your script. I didn’t receive an error, so I believe that the real error is because on line 15 the “-” is detached from the “0”.
It should read -0 -0 instead of - 0.

However, despite it not being an error… it probably won’t appear on your screen if you use a minus code.

yeah i was thinking it would work it cames from helper readout box

what’s minus code?

Also, in regards to scaling your overlays. It’s usually about testing the sizes out and moving them around.

Most overlays [for zone 1 backgrounds] work with the code:

&overlay OVERLAYNAME shifts to 0 0 in zone 1 in 0
&overlay OVERLAYNAME scales to 1.000 1.000

^ Because that usually spot directs them into their correct places… but of course, this isn’t the case for all overlays.

A minus code is what you attempted to use on line 15. When you typed minus zero.
The code will work, but minus digits usually place both characters and overlays off screen… and you actually need them on screen, I’m assuming?!

yeah i ask someone before you told me the right code they give me that i still learning how episode codes work i didn’t know

Haha, it’s alright. We all started somewhere! :blush: And most of us are happy to help out whenever we can.

If you can send me the script from lines 1 to 22, I can test it for you in my portal… and edit it so that the overlays are placed correctly and then send it back to you, if that’d help?!

Ah, I didn’t notice that you’re using your own overlays. Could you possibly PM me the overlays?! As I need to use the exact same ones as you, in order to test it out.

oh okay sorry

You don’t need to apologize. :blush: It was my fault for not properly reading the overlay names. I should’ve noticed.

Are you able to send them in a message… as they’re not clickable, here.

oh these are images of the overlays and and name

Did you screenshot them from your portal, because they’re a bit small. Which won’t work as I need them in the actual size that you currently have them… in order to spot direct and resize them correctly on the portal.

Are you able to upload them from your device?!

yeah i did i send you the link
