Writer Portal Update: Line by Line Mode

@Rosina.V omg no :scream: Send in a ticket in the meantime, that’s really scary :woozy_face:

@Kariangi13 Same, I haven’t tested either but from what I’ve seen, it is producing bad results :flushed: Maybe we can just stick with:

NARR
Pause.

For now.

Clouds now have an obvious black tint around it. They’re moving overlays. Only overlay in that scene.

Meadow background overlay now has a blackoutline surrounding it,instead of blending smoothly. This was not there before.
Only overlay in this scene.

I’ll try. Ik how it goes with these things, as shown in the past. ^ sounds like they’re not responding so I hope they genuinely fix it.

I’m not sure what’s with all my overlays having black auras around it. (You can see the yellow glow has it too,easier to see on the episode characters.) It doesn’t matter if they’re not fading in opacity on the coding. They all have it, some overlays it’s just generally easier to see depending on the background. And it doesn’t matter the numbers of overlays in a particular scene.

My eclipse has a grey sheen to it now instead of the pure white it had 4 weeks ago.

Any fixes will be genuinely appreciated.

whoa. Now my previewer doesn’t work at all. What a mess.

Can you please address the issue with character’s clothes and hair being of really low quality? I’m sure I’m not the only one having this problem and it kinda messes up the reading AND writing experience.

My grey overlay became purple :expressionless:

Episode not only set limits on app and portal, I believe limits are also on forum, because I have a hard time uploading usual photos. :grimacing:

Maybe Episode doesn’t earn enough to increase their servers and prevent lagging. :disappointed:

When I change the overlay opacity gradually it flashes white :cry:

Yeah but the real problem now is the overlays looking weird. I’ve used quite a lot for my story. :grimacing:

It happens to me too!

This whole situation is a huge yikes. Around 70% of my overlays are messed up, and on top of that, I was so close to publishing :sweat:

While I appreciate the hard work and good intentions behind it, this is honestly a very disappointing and demotivating update :confused: Now I don’t even want to open the app (as a writer and a reader) due to the poor quality of our characters + the overlay issues. Exactly how was this supposed to enhance our experiences…?

Exactly.

yup

Wait, is this happening when you use line by line mode with overlays or just having overlays in general?

It’s happening just by having overlays in general, and it frikkin sucks
