    Minor quibble, I am running Godot 4 beta 3 and I can’t quite figure out how to get the editor to add the _ready() and _process(delta) functions and comments via one click as shown in the video. It could be helpful to know the shortcut to add boilerplate functions like that for folks new to the engine (like myself).

    Great series though, I love the pacing and find myself not needing to run at 1,5x like I do with other similar tutorials!

      I believe in this particular case, Tom is just copying and pasting the _ready() and _process() functions from somewhere else, but you can also use “Default” template in the Attach Script dialog to achieve the same thing. Hope that helps and glad you’re enjoying the pacing - we spent a lot of time trying to get that right!

        That makes sense, also using the default template is specificied in the next session so I just needed to keep going :)

        I just had thought I missed a cool keyboard shortcut, thanks!

    There are two lines that do not work


    new_world.position = Vector2(400, 0)

    *preload file (“res://scense/platform.tscn”) does no’t exist. *Missing connected method_on_ready’ for signal ‘ready’ from node ‘World’ to node ‘World’. [ignore] Line 18 (UNUSED PARAMETER): The parameter ‘delta’ is never used in the function ‘_process’. If this is intended, prefix it with an underscore: “_delta’ *Invalid set index ‘position’ (on base. “int”) with value of type 'Vector2”

    *0:00:01:0007 0:00:01:0116 The parameter ‘delta’ is never used in the function ‘_process’. If this is intended, prefix it with an underscore: ‘_delta’ emit signalp: Error calling from signal ‘ready’ to callable: "Node2D( on ready: Method not found.

    Not: Note: I am working on the latest version 4.0.2

      You’ve misspelled “scenes”. You can ignore the warning about unused parameters.
