Hello guys, I needed help with my new game The Legendaries, it's a top down RPG game and I wanted to implement character customization. When I open the game, go to the main room and then try to dash, I get this error:
___________________________________________

FATAL ERROR in

for object obj_dash_effect:

Variable obj_dash_effect.face(100013, -2147483648) not set before reading it.
at gml_Object_obj_dash_effect_DrawEvent_1 (line 3) - { if (face = DOWN)
############################################################################################

Help would be appreciated a lot.

Help would be appreciated a lot. (Though I don't get any error when I try to attack or move)

The easiest fix would be to just say if (obj_player.face = DOWN). Since "face" is a variable local to the player object, "obj_dash_effect" doesn't have the variable's value; so putting "obj_player.face" gets the value from the player object and allows the dash object to use it.

Thank you so much, it works now. :)

Also, one more thing, my player just uses the run animation when I attack. How is it possible to make it so that he uses an attack animation instead of run animation?

I think you should use it in your obj_face in the step event.
I get this error when I try to talk with NPC:

(I fixed the attacking animation)
