So I downloaded this dialogic plugin and it looks great and all. There are some good tutorials on youtube but they are pretty old and just cover the old versions. So here is my problem.

I created a character and wrote text for it, but I can’t add his to my scene. I use character join node in dialogic editor but it wants me to add a position. In old version it seems like there were buttons for this. But anyway whatever I write in the position box, engine says such position doesn’t exist.

So anyone knows how to add positions and can help me?

In the new version of the Dialogic plugin, positions are added as a child of a SceneTree. To add a new position, follow these steps:

  1. Open the SceneTree panel by clicking on the SceneTree tab on the
    left side of the Godot editor.

  2. Right-click on the root node of the scene you want to add a position
    to and select “Add Child Node.”

  3. In the “Create Node” window, select “Dialogic” and then “Position.”

  4. Give the position node a name and click “Create.”

  5. In the Inspector panel, you can set the position of the node by
    modifying the “Translation” property under the “Transform” section.

  6. Once you’ve set the position, you can use the name of the position
    node in the “Character Join” node of the Dialogic editor.

Well in step 3, when I press create node and search Dialogic, a bunch of things come up but none of them is position. Do I have the wrong addon or smt?

I’m not familiar with the Dialogic plugin, but knowing the recent history of the responder, the answer is likey a cut/paste directly from ChatGPT - which is notorious for supplying inaccurate information. So, if you don’t have a Position item as described above, it’s (unfortunately) likely to be something that ChatGPT just made up on the fly…
