Question What am I doing wrong, with this simple custom method? - 06-11-2015, 02:31 AM

Hello Alice community!

So, for the past few weeks, I have been attempting to teach myself Alice, through a series of visual and text tutorials. I learn best through visuals, so I try to find photographic examples of how to create various methods properly.

Although I have been mostly successful, I seem to get caught up in fairly simple errors:


I have been attempting too create custom walk methods (body movements in general) but I keep running into the issue of certain limbs becoming detached from the torso.
I have some idea of what I am doing wrong with this, but I would appreciate a little nudge!

I just don't understand why one leg is moving properly, but the other does not!

I have attached an example of a my current custom "Walk" method.

Thanks in advance!

Pretty simple Really:
You're telling the skeleton to move forward 1 meter, and since skeleton is the vehicle for the leg, telling the leg to move forward moves it twice as far as the skeleton (1 for Skeleton moves the leg too, +1 for leg.
