I have 2 KinematicBody2D (A and B) and one Area2D. If body A entered the Area2D, I want to print “Body A entered”. If body B entered the Area2D, I want to print "Body B entered.
Thats like the scene looks:


I already know how to conect the body_entered signal with another node, but I do not know how to differentiate between the two bodys,

Thanks for your answers!

If your familiar with groups, put each kinematic body in its own group. And then when you check for a body enter do something like

if body.is_in_group(B) print : (body b entered)

if body.is_in_group(A) print : (body A entered)

Hope that helps

I put them in a group, but when I trie to do this in the main scene:

func _on_Area2D_body_entered(body):
if body_is_in_group(A):

There comes this: A is not declared in the currant scope.

Make sure to put quotations like this

if body.is_in_group(“A”):

let me know if that fixes it

If you named your KinematicBody2Ds A and B respectivly you can try getting the name from them.

func _body_entered(body):
    print("Body " ,, " entered")

It works and it is very simple
