I’m a beginner to GODOT and I’m doing the Pong tutorial. The Tutorial seems to be outdated?

I can not get the poistion info of any sprite. In my Screenshot you can see the suggestions I have and get_pos() seems not to be one of them.

How to solve this problem or is the function placed elsewhere now?

That tutorial is old and outdated. You are looking at the 2.1 version of the docs.

The 3.0 docs are here: Step by step — Godot Engine (3.0) documentation in English

BTW, you can choose the docs version at the bottom of the sidebar.


I still want to built this Pong Game though. So the question remains: How can I retrieve the position of a node in 3.0 then?

Thanks in advance

In 3.0 properties may be accessed directly, rather than using get/set, so this would be:


That said, I still don’t recommend this tutorial. It was replaced for some very good reasons, and doesn’t really introduce Godot well.
