[Solved] Move side image to right side?

#1 Post by Rekoija » Tue May 26, 2020 7:13 am

By default side images assigned to a character is shown at the left side, in front of the dialog box, because it's typically used for the main character.
Thing is, sometimes I need to cover most of the screen with other stuff, so I need to be able to keep showing facial expressions of everyone.
I think it would look much better if only the main character showed up on the left side, while everyone else shows up at the right side.

I've tried a couple different things, but even when they didn't show an error message, the image would still just appear on the left.
I'm guessing it's because side images have a default somewhere, and you need more specific code than defining image position to actually move it?

define x = Character(image="x")
image side x expression = "x_expression.png"
- this one is the only of my characters that needs to be on the left side

define y = Character(image="y")
image side y expression = "y_expression.png"
- so what do i change here to show the rest of the characters on the right side?

Any help would be much appreciated, and thanks in advance!
