NPC not working

  • #1, by annaSunday, 17. January, 16:03 3 months ago
    Hey smile
    I followed the tutorials of Silvernode Studios on YT about Characteranimation and NPCs. I wanted to create a NPC that starts as a loop animation when the scene starts. But my NPC is not shown in my scene, not befor or after I start the game. My maincharacter works perfectly fine. Has someone else had this problem or an idea what I could do to fix this? Thank you smile

    Could have several causes...
    did you define a starting position (characters properties) for this npc?
    and as it is a npc I guess you did not include an image for all directions - is the character facing in a direction you got an image for? (you can delete all directions of your outfit that you don't need)

    I don't understand what you mean by showing the character before starting the game. None of the characters are shown in the scene before starting the game? Is the NPC a character or are you using an object as a character?
    If you are using an object, then forget about the starting position and direction. Then it is most likely that you forgot to set your animation as default animation or you have set the loop to 1 (default setting) instead of infinite.

    If this is not helping, maybe you could post some screenshots of your settings of the character, so it's easier to find the problem.
    For quicker help - most of the users are more active on discord

    Hey, thanks for the response smile
    I checked everything you suggested, everything is how its supposed to be. I can click on the NPC and the dialog works. I created a default animation for the object that is linked to the NPC. If I do that a animation is played. But the stand- and talkanimations don`t work. Maybe I overlook something easy and obvious I`m new to this programm, thank you for you help smile
    How can I join the discord?

    I was about to delete & kick from the forum, thinking that you had posted spam links (well that & because of your username), until I realized you actually posted the invite links to our discord server. Close call, eh? grin

    I'm not sure I get what is happening.
    So you have only a static frame for the standing animation playing instead of the full animation? Or is the NPC invisible?
    The talking animation should play when a display text action is triggered.

    Could you post screenshots of how you set up the animations? (here or on discord, the link is provided above)

    And I don't know how you linked a object to the character? Could you explain (or show) what you did there?

    Btw.: you don't need to set a font for the dialog selection for an NPC. This is only needed for a player character. Just the font (first option) wil suffice.

    Just a strange choice for a name is all, & I saw lots of links, which is usually when I swing the boot shaped hammer. grin

    If you want to learn/help - then as you already suggested & linked - I would recommend joining the discord server as that's where we are most active, which includes myself, Simon, Sebastian, & most of what would be considered the regular posters on here.

    Well, it's good you got it working... but it's a shame you didn't figure out exactly what the issue was because if it happens again then you are going to have try out random things to fix it again. Aisus, oh well.
