Hi, I have a main scene, player scene and npc scene.

I want to connect Area2d body entered to the player in main scene, so that he can interact with him and start a dialogue.

How can I do this? I tried a couple of times but it didnt work.

What node type is the player or the NPC scene? Code snippets?

You can add Player to a Global Script:
1- Make a new script and name it
2- In, make a new variable and call it Player, so your will look like:

extends Node
var Player

3- Go to Project->Project Settings->Auto Load and add to the list

3- In your Player’s _ready() function, add :

Global.Player = self

Now, just connect the body_entered signal to your current node script and within your current node script, call the Player function you want, like:


Or you can use the connect method:
In your current node ready function, add:

connect("body_entered", Global.Player, "my_func", [body])

thanks, that was really helpful, but I get an error:
Parser Error: Identifier not found: body through the connect method
