Having a piece of dialog go back and forth between characters

    Hey, probably something very simple but I cant seem to figure it out. I want to know how I can have to characters converse back and forth several times without having to select and answer from the interface. How can this be achieved?

    There is a possibility to execute an action next to the dialog parts. (lightning bolt)
    You can put in whatever you want - as many display text actions parts as you want or animations or...

    So if I understand correctly I just script the dialog outside the dialog editor and switch back after the piece of dialog from the script is done?

    the dialog options will continue after the action parts inside the action are through

    not really outside the dialog editor, it is a part of it. And like sebastians said, the dialog will continue afterwards.

    Tnx you two! I got it.

    And if you want to have an intro to a dialog, you do these show texts in the chatacter action tab and start the dialog after that?

    Aye. If you tick the box for setting "alternative text for dialog part" & leave both the answer & alternative text input boxes empty then it will automatically switch to the action parts as soon as the dialog option is selected; providing you have created some.
