Hi guys

I am creating a function which gets the coordinates of puzzle pieces and store them in a json file. The problem is, its only saving one entry and is not appending the entries into file.
Related code is below :

if event is InputEventMouseButton and !event.pressed:
var event_pos = get_position()
var p_id = id
write_to_file(event_pos, id)

func write_to_file(pos, p_id):
print(pos, p_id)

var event_data = {}
var data_files =
if, File.WRITE) != OK:
event_data["Position"] = pos
event_data["Piece_ID"] = p_id


I’m pretty new to Godot/json, but afaik If event_data[“Position”] and event_data[“Place_ID”] are lists:

I have solved the problem as follows and its working fine now , however if needed I can share the full code for Write_to_file function

if data_file.file_exists(global.Event_FILE_PATH):, File.READ_WRITE)
else:, File.WRITE)
