android read/write permissions, export options

i’m making an android game which saves the progress to “user://data.json” file
the game crashes, probably because i haven’t set the required permissions in my export settings
what options should be checked to access storage?
i have already checked Read External Storage and Write External Storage

I guess that’s not the problem.
The problem is not in the options. There must be another problem

heres the script i’m using

extends Node

const data_path = "user://data.json"

const default_data = {
	"bgm": {
		"bgm_collection": "city_pop",
		"current_track_index": 0

var global_data

func _ready():

func load_data():
	var file =

	if not file.file_exists(data_path):

	else:, File.READ)
		var text = file.get_as_text()
		global_data = parse_json(text)
		# global_data = default_data.duplicate(true)


func save_data(data):
	var file =, File.WRITE)
	global_data = data.duplicate(true)

Have you tried recording on your computer? Is it working

for example:
const data_path = “C:/Users/***/Desktop/my_game/save.json”

Use the remote debug in the Godot editor to find the exact line where your problem is produced
