Yay's Official Help Thread (CODING HELP, AND MORE!)

Do you mean like an animation?

Do something like this:

@CHARACTER is animation

@CHARACTER walks to spot (numbers) AND CHARACTER is animation

(you can also use default positions.)

do you want the JINXEPISODE5 overlay to appear? Or The RUDE_IN1?

The RUDE_IN1 one

You seem to be having alot of trouble with either shifting overlays or animating them, I think I may have a few videos on overlays that may help you just so you can learn and don’t need to worry about asking for help :slight_smile:

If these still don’t solve your problem please let me know :slight_smile:

PS: These are from great episode youtubers whos videos should solve your problem

Thank you, it worked :slight_smile:

Those helped out a lot! Thank you! This is another question about overlays though lmao
I’m trying to make the bullet overlay keep coming out of the gun, but fast, so it goes with the animation (lucky episode characters can shoot pretty fast yo) Should I add a .10 to the command for the time or just remove the 1.0

Hey I have a Question If you were to Preview your Story on your Laptop or Computer Would It look the Same when the Readers read your Story Or should I just use my Phone to Preview my story?

Whats the story? I’d love to check it out!

It’s quite different. Some things don’t show up on the web preview and there are a lot of errors! You will also not get the best experience as you will be clicking rather than tapping! Hope I helped…

&IVAN walks to spot 0.993 71 109 in zone 2 in 5 AND IVAN does it while walk_neutral THEN IVAN is think
@RYAN walks to spot 0.940 124 113 in 3 AND RYAN does it while walk_neutral THEN RYAN is arms_crossed

Sorry to be a pain, but there’s a scene in my script that gets completely ignored. I don’t know if it’s because it has the same background as the next scene, but it ignores it completely:

The fuck happened?

like it’s not playing this scene? you can’t see dialogues?

Hey! I know you have already started to help me on letting the readers customize their characters, but I was wondering if you could help me with something else also. All of a sudden there is a script error saying Unexpected character. Even though I made sure the name is spelled correctly and it is showing up blue like it is supposed too. Please help me!!!
