Why can't I write @CHARACTER stands screen center in zone 2?


#1

I tried to write: @CHARACTER stands screen center in zone 2, but it says it’s an error and that I can’t have an @ (director command) there.

What I want to achieve is to make a character stand in another zone facing away so that I can pan to the zone as if the main character walks into the room and sees the person on the other side of the room.

Thank you for your help!! (I’LL COME BACK IN A WHILE, SORRY)

Can you send a screenshot of the surrounding coding so I can try to figure out why the directing command isn’t working there?


#3

You have to add that command at the beginning of the scene and it should work.

A command like @CHARACTER stands screen center will not work in the middle of a scene as characters can’t just pop up out of nowhere.

oh, ok thx!


#5

Maybe you could add AND CHARACTER faces direction?


#6

You also need dialogue on line 1470 :ok_hand:


#7

Ok, I’ll try :slight_smile:


#8

I mean under this line😅


#9

Did it work?


#10

yeah I got u. Thank u! :grin:


#11

No problem :blush: is it working now? You also need dialogue on line 1466 and 1482 :ok_hand:

Just use this code when you only want them to do something without talking:

@CHARACTER is animation


#12

yeah but now I get the same problem further down instead :sweat_smile:

Did you tried this? :blush:


#14

yeah ik, I tried it :slight_smile: But is it possible for a character to do two animations, one after another, or is that impossible?


#15

@CHARACTER is animation THEN CHARACTER is animation
I think😊


#16

Ok, I’ll try it!


#17

sorry, it didn’t work :slightly_frowning_face:


#18

Have you tried doing the animations one after another instead?

@NELLY is tinker_kneel_neutral_loop_rear
&NELLY starts Idle_terrified_loop

That might work


#19

Why? What happened after you tested it?


#20

Ok I’ll try it later when I get home!
